 Description of the problemOn 9/21/18 my husband was driving to the store down the interstate and his truck shut off causing him to coast to the shoulder. When he did he noticed some light smoke. He tried to pop the hood but it wouldn't pop so he got out and tried to see if it was caught and saw more smoke he looked underneath to see stuff dripping like melting from the engine compartment, at that time he went to walk around the truck to look for a fire extinguisher when he heard a loud explosion causing him to run back from the truck and call 911. In less than 5 minutes the entire truck was engulfed in flames and in the 25 it took the fire department to arrive the entire truck except the bed and rear tires were completely burnt down. 5 months prior to this the engine in this ecodiesel blew up while he was driving down the interstate and chrysler did an complete engine replacement on it under warranty and due to their fault. The new engine only had 10-15k miles on it and to replace this engine you have to take the entire truck apart like a lego cab and all. Ram is not coming out with an ecodiesel in the 1500 in 2019 but chrysler is not owning responsibility for the truck almost killing my husband. The truck was in motion on fire and on the side of a highway when it burnt down. It was in motion and on an interstate when the first engine blew with only 84k miles on a diesel.
