I just bought the truck lastnight and today it says it needs to be preformed. I looked in the owners manual and it says run at highway speeds for 45 minutes should take care of it. Could someone explain exactly what this means. Or any tricks to get this done. This is my first diesel pickup and first dodge truck.
The idea is to get the truck hot to help with the regeneration process in the DPF. The best way to do this is run at highway speeds, if you can tow something that will reduce the time needed since the truck runs hotter when towing. Try not to idle more than a few minutes unless necessary and it should reduce the frequency of seeing this message.
