Regeneration question?

Hello all,
Im new to the forum and I've only had my truck a week or so. I have a question about the regen with the new 2013's. Im fairly familiar with what it is as the firetruck Im acustom to driving requires Urea fluid /Blue DEF as well. According to the manual, the truck will take care of the regen itself when necessary. Normally on a longer higway trip I believe it said? The process may requre a trip of 30 min or more? The detroit diesel in the other truck I drive will allow the operator to "manually" put the truck through the regeneration process and it takes about 20 min.

Does anyone know if the new 2013 6.7 will allow a "manual" regen by me or will it only happen while operating the truck? I know I can increase the idle up to 1100 or even 1500 RMP while the trucks in park by using the cruise control, will this take care of a regen when my "regeneration required" light finally comes on????

Any help on this???

You should NEVER see the regeneration required light. If you do, you need to change your driving habits. You CANNOT do a manual regen on a Ram

Regeneration takes place "automtically"...truck does it when the DPF sensors deem it necessary for a regen...One can't manually make it happen..

Not to beat this to death but.... Lets say I'm crusin up the highway and about to get off the exit and I notice the "regeneration in process" light on. Do I need to stay on the highway for another 30-45 min like the manual says or will it continue to regen at an idol once I get off the highway????

I'm pretty sure it's like a wet dream--it just happens.

I think if you stop in the middle of a regen it will still do it whenever it needs to. Maybe it will regen sooner as the process was not completed. Maybe it will start the regen process again upon startup. I'm not sure but it is automatic and does not require anything from me other than keeping the tank with enough fuel.

The only thing I've seen regarding a regen is I got a message of the Evic saying something to the effect of Exhaust Regeneration Complete. I just happened to look at the Evic to see it. I believe this is the only regen I've had based on the mileage I had when it was done (it went back up for the rest of the tank to almost the "normal" average mpg).

These trucks will continue to regen off of the highway.

You "could" get that message if you don't use your truck as designed. If you are already on the highway you should never see that message. It is perfectly fine to shut it down while in regen. It will restart the next time you drive.

Same questions on the Ford forums as well. Drive it when u want, if regen starts when u are stopping/shutting it down, no worries. It will figure out when to do it.

No issues with mine and I have a short commute. Last week truck started regen every trip over 3 days before I needed to drive it more than 10 miles and it completed. Plan to check the oil when changed to check for fuel in it.
