 Description of the problem2015 ram 1500 eco diesel 3. 0 l engine. Leaking egr cooler during 2017 and 2018 cross country trip hauling a 23 ft travel trailer. Mostly highway driving. Both times egr leaked internally causing coolant to be sucked into the engine and burned. Leak was slow at a rate of 1 gallon or so per week of 1500 miles of driving per week. Both times egr cooler was replaced under warranty. Seems like failure only occurs while towing for prolonged period. First egr cooler was replaced nov 2017. No towing until june 2018 when it failed. Second cooler replaced aug 2018. First cooler only leaked internally. Second leaked internally and externally at the coolant seals. Coolant being ingested into the engine can easily damage the emission control systems. Many complaints on dodge ram eco diesel forums about faulty egr coolers.
