I had my 2015 in for an oil change two weeks ago. The tech that was doing the oil change sent me a video of the the inspection, showing me the oil leaking from the gasket of the timing chain cover. Luckily I have a warranty from the dealership that the truck was purchased from and it will be picking up the tab. Its been there for over a week. In all the Eco Diesel forum and Facebook page posts I have not seen a post about a timing chain leak. They basically had the frontend of the truck disassembled to get at it. Original estimate was 20 hours of labor.
So this leads me to my second question, I have a pedal commander in the box in the truck (never been installed) the service advisor warned me to not install do to it will start throwing CEL's. Potentially needing to be towed and hooked up to clear codes. I know their are many satisfied people with them just curios to hear from someone if they had issues.

Thanks
