You will get this message ever 67,500 miles and it is a reminder to replace the crank case breather filter.

Ok, i may be able to help. i tried to do the step on the brake two times thing and it didnt work for me because its all about the timing you really have to be patient and go slow make sure you firmly press it all the way to the floor, all the way down and all the way up in one slow fluid motion. I tried just pressing it two times fast and the guy at the dealership told me about this. So do exactly what you were doing just take your time at it. down,one two, up one two. It may take a few trys but it should work. Good luck!

Your oil is getting blacker sooner due to Dodges use of EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) to reduce "carbon" (soot) emmissions to legislated levels for passenger vehicles.

The EGR system directly takes exhaust gases and soot and reroute it directly into the intake manifold/horn of newer trucks.
This system also incorporates a DPF (diesel particulate filter) in the exhaust system after the turbo. The system also requires a periodic (computer controled) "regeneration" cycle that injects raw fuel into the exhaust to burn off the collected soot in the filter. Totally automated.

Not a great setup, but necessary to retain for warranty coverage,and meet emmisions standards without the use of DEF (diesel exhaust fluid).

There are numerous EGR "delete" kits available and DPF delete exhaust systems, but the use of these kits generally requires the use of an aftermarket programmer capable of clearing DTC's (diagnostic trouble codes). And the use of a programmer (according to MOST dealerships) will land you in a "restricted warranty".

The soot blackening the oil sooner will not drastically impede the oil performance as long as it is changed regularly and a quality oil filter is used.

Welcome to the forums and feel free to give the search option a try in the top right under "search this forum" to try to find out any more opinions and detailed information regarding your concern.

Hope this was helpful

I wanted to link a good how-to thread on changing your oil from a while back:

2010/2011 Oil Change How-To Guide

It's pretty detailed and should help guys doing it for the first time.

#3. Buy a S&B intake although the WCC mod adds louder results but works best when used with the intake 289.00
#4. Buy a regular turbo such as a silver 66. Exhaust will be louder and the turbo will scream!!!!
Could you define CEL. How is this baffle installed and could you help with the ways to remove it.. Also, what about this warranty stuff, will it affect it once that is removed. Thanks

CEL stands for Check Engine Light.

The baffle is simply slid down into the intake tube from the factory. To remove it just pull the intake tube off, unbolt the band clamps, separate the tube from the airbox and and remove the baffle - you may have to pull pretty hard, as it's a very tight fit inside the tube, but IT WILL COME OUT. It took me all of 10 minutes to remove it, from finish to end.

Here is a picture of what the baffle will look like when looking down the intake tube:



As for warranty, it should not affect it at all, as the function of the baffle as I understand it is simply to quiet down the intake noise/whistle.
