Longblock Replacement

Hi all, my first post here. Has anyone seen the latest TSB 09-008-16 regarding engine vibration calling for a Longblock replacement? This seems kind of alarming to me, can't find any info on this matter and curious if this has been done by anyone on here.

You do realize that short block and long block refer to how populated with parts they are. Biggest difference is a short block needs the cylinder head(s) and a long block already has them installed.

Glad that got cleared up as was said 4 cyli. 8 cyl that's the terminology. Has anyone experienced this vibration? The thought of replacing my engine at the dealer freaks me out ten fold!

I think I may be heading that way, because I have a vibration into the chassis and steering wheel since I boght the Trailhawk. They replaced so far the Steering column, nothing changed, right side engine mount, nothing changed, it will folow soon left side engine mount, it is ordered waiting for the part to arrive next week, I am preaty sure will not solve the problem and next step will be the engine replacement, which really pisses me off. Is a 2.0 Diesel engine.

Yes. Gently handled. Well done.

My 1.4 has quite a rough buzz until the oil gets fully warmed up then its smooth as glass. Sorry 2.0 and 2.4. Easier to replace the whole long block than regrind a crank at the dealer.
