But you gotta admit, there isn't the number of reports here like there was before, right? I mean that stalling thread had thousands of views and hundreds of posts. Now hardly any.
Indeed, the reports are nonexistent now however even at the peak, I think there were less than 50 reports. 1 stall in front of an 18 wheeler is one too many so I don't want to minimize the risk in any way.
Yes, there was controversy because many of us just can't help believing in conspiracies. T23 fixed the problem coding that caused the stalling problem, but not by design. Rather, when FCA finally figured out the stalling problem they realized that it had already been fixed with T23. Oddly, it may be that T23 slowed down FCA's diagnosis of the stalling problem, because the engineers might have been working on a code base that included T23.
It does seem like FCA nailed the problem addressed by U01 because, exactly as you say, complaints have plummeted. It also seems as if the code is still not quite perfect because there are still some stalls reported, but the code is apparently far closer to where it should be...
Chrysler did not help the situation by issuing recall info indicting a fix would be in the works by April and mysteriously listing the U01 recall as "completed" on 2/20/18 when no one had gone in to have the work performed. Only AFTER inquiring did we learn that "if you had the T23 done earlier, it updated the PCM software so the U01 is not required if T23 was already done".
I just got an email yesterday from FCA with an "urgent" notice in "red" that included my VIN stating I need to have a safety recall done. That is the U01 and one would think that if they have my VIN, they should know that I don't need the U01 if indeed the T23 covered it and they know I had T23 done. Thinking there is something new to do, I called the dealer yesterday and ran my VIN. It is still listed as completed with no outstanding recalls. Not exactly a conspiracy theory and healthy skepticism is fueled by these missteps and confusing information.
"...because there are still some stalls reported,..." What stalls reported where?
Not all stalls are T23/U01 related. One cat, it might have been T W below, who had bad coils and other issues.
I believe Tusk White made that claim in this thread
He needs to lemon that thing. Does not seem to be T23/U01 related.
