 Description of the problemThere isn't enough room for the entire ordeal, but i will do my best to congest it. June 19th: went to dealer ship with check engine light, nobody there knew what it meant, and they erased it and told me not to worry about it unless it comes back. July 3rd: vacation trip, about 2 hours into driving, truck looses throttle, solid check engine light comes on, "service electronic throttle control" smoke coming from engine bay, smelled like plastic to me. Found what looked like a melted quarter sized boiling spot on the manifold? I believe. Checked that engine light was solid, and on june 19th was told if light is solid, it's safe to drive, if it's blinking shut off imediately. It was solid. Vacation's over, drive back to vegas at about 40-50mph (truck wouldn't go any faster) on blinkers the whole way with my fiancee in the passanger seat, and 3 year old son in the back seat. An hour ourside of vegas, truck was throwing flame balls and sparks out the rear, immediately pulled off to the desert, and evacuated my son and fiancee. Grabbed red bulls and green teas to douse the fire. Got the fire out after several minutes. If i didn't notice the sparks or fireballs, or if a fuel line caught on fire, we could have died. The entire underside of the truck was burned and the dpf on the exhaust was glowing bright red still. I spoke with an original engineer on the truck, through a facebook group for these trucks, which he states 2 weeks prior when i took the truck in, the egr must have started malfunctioning, and they shouldn't have brushed me off. Which led to it sticking open, and blowing a hole in the intake manifold (the burning plastic smell) when i was driving back to safety (in the middle of nowhere), a regeneration occured causing the dpf to fill up, and essentially explode, and catch the truck on fire. Truck is awaiting reps from detroit.
