Actual % of DPF and EGR problems

Hi Everyone,

I am new to the forum and new to diesel ownership (just bought my first diesel 3 weeks ago). I did quite a bit of reading and research before buying so I new about the DPF and EGR issues but didn't think it was all that common. I'm curious if anyone know's the actual % of trucks with problem's out there? From doing some reading on this forum, the number seems to be like 90%. I tow alot in the summer but don't put on many miles in the winter (and it will be mostly in town driving). What are my chance's of running into problem's with non-towing, non-highway miles in the winter? (probably about 4000 miles over the course of the winter)

There were some issues with the 2007.5 trucks but the 2008s are much better. There are a lot of us on here like myself who have had no problems with our trucks. Since this forum is here to help those with problems that is what you see. You don't see post from all of us that have had no problems. I have almost 22K miles on mine without a problem.

The reason that many uf us want/do the DPF and EGR deletes is for fuel mileage and for longevity of the engine not because they have actually caused us any problems (yet).

^he is about right on.

I never had any major problems with mine either. I would guess about 50/50.

I wouldn't even say 50%. You only read about the problem trucks. There are thousands on the road that aren't members here that have no problems. 40K on mine and problem free

i have on 07.5, and it was a headache untill the 02 censor recall. that did quite a bit for it. still, every now and then i'd get hiccup. but nothing like it was. i think if i would have gotten a new turbo it'd been trouble free. i've heard good things about the 08's. i did let my pickup idle longer than the manual stated, but, i'm a firm believer in letting your motor get to running temps before taking off.

That sums up my position pretty well, no problems in 9000 miles and the first 5000 were with everything stock.

I'm at 4500 miles and also a new Diesel Owner. I've had mine for less than 3 months.
My only "problems" have been the nuisance of TPMS doing its job. They do not publish very good instructions for it. I found a TSB on the subject, set my tire pressures and no more problems.

I have been running the EGR unplugged for the economy reasons. And now I've added the PMT for Performance & economy adds.

As a new diesel owner, I had been considering the Dodge for a long time due to tis reputation of reliability and high MPG. Then I decided to buy my 1st new vehicle ever. OOPS, Dodge changed to the 6.7L & added all the EPA stuff. I love my new truck, 4500 miles in 2 months on a truck that is NOT a daily driver shows how much I've enjoyed it.
On the Emission problems. These only seem to be related to driving style and local. Those that live in places that have mostly freeways etc don't seem to experience as much issues. I being one.
Have fun with your new truck.

^^^Perfectly said^^^
I remained stock until 11K and had no problems what so ever! I chose to delete due to the excessive internal soot caused by the EGR valve. Poor economy caused by the regen cycles needed to "clean" the DPF. Another problem cause by the regen cycles is the interdiction of diesel fuel into the engine oil. I gained almost 2 quarts of oil/diesel in 4K miles. Im not an expert by any means but the internal engine contamination caused by the EGR and DPF will not allow for longevity. I was somewhat reluctant to do the deletes, but now theyre done Id never look back and wish I would have done them the day I brought it home.

9500 stock and no problems. Have deleted the EGR and plan to do the DPF delete because I bought the truck to work hard and be able to play harder.
