If you bring it to a good dealer that deals with the diesels they should be able to measure how much soot it's producing and find out why.

Iím at a loss as to why this truck is producing so much soot in such a short time.
I believe the regen's are triggered based on sensors and the computers interpretation of that data. Could be producing way to much soot, could be some other issue. How clean is the tail pipe and the area near it. Any signs of to much soot.

OP, do you happen to have an aftermarket intake/filter? I have notice a correlation to people having frequent regens and having an aftermarket intake. I think a lot of people would say regens happening every 400 miles or less to be pretty excessive. Driving style matters of course.

Canít a dealer with WiTech do a manual regen. Didnít I read that a member here has done that for his customers while the truck idles and is more effective then the regens done by the truck running down the highway.

If you have the AlfaOBD software and reader, you can do a manual regen also.

Negative. Truck is completely stock.

Correct. Shows 100%.
The EGR valve goes to zero and the EGTs climb well over 1000 degrees.
Runs the DPF down into the low 20s and returns to normal.

I spoke with ZZ Diesel in Kokomo IN. He suggested the DPF pressure sensor might be bad. Iím going to research how to check that before I buy one.

The way to check it would be to connect a dealer level scan tool up, one that can see live sensor outputs and check that it is operating in the correct range. The pressure sensor can also get clogged up with soot.

But, the ecm should be seeing the sensor output, and should throw a code if it's not operating correctly.

Possibly you could use the alfa-obd, but I don't know if it sees live sensor data.

I just looked. It appears my app has a DPF pressure pod for inlet and outlet. Iíll check if the truck is sending that value tomorrow.

Wht are you using to see the regen cycles?

Will the OBD11 tell you? Maybe I'm just looking in the wrong place. I have the OBDLink ScanTool but didn't see anywhere where it tells me when it went through Regen. Sorry if this is a dumb question.

What software/app are you running with the OBD2 adapter? Most programs don't have the regen PID in the base app. You would have to add it manually. However you should be able to monitor EGT sensor3 and when it goes up over 1000 degrees it is regening
