Post what you did to er and maybe even a picture to accompany it.

Today I just washed it and did a quick wax job. It was pretty dirty from about 5 commutes to work!

Ahh, nothing like being woken up at 7am on a Saturday to the words "I'm taking your car, mine won't start." 2014 Diesel. Starts, stumbles, shuts off.

Scratched head for a bit, cussed, wondered if it had gas in the tank instead of diesel. Nah, not that. Fuel pump? No, I can hear it working. HPFP? God I hope not. Hmm battery is only at like 12v better put the charger on it. Well that didn't help, hmm. Glow plugs? It's kind of cold but it shouldn't cut off once it fires because of that. Where the hell did I put my OBDLink?! Of course it's the weekend and all my good tools are at work. Crap, well, I have one idea that I've ran into on Cummins engines before.

EGR valve was stuck open, removed and cleaned it out and got it moving freely again. Put a bit of transmission fluid on the moving parts, worked it back and forth a bit, got it free enough then used brake cleaner to finish it off. Moved quite well after that, installed and she's purring again.

I've had it off once before to clean it, don't remember how long ago it was though... Maybe around 80k? It's at 142k now. I should check the MAP today while I'm at it.
