dpf delete is the way to go. but for the time, make sure you have the latest software revision ----AP for the '08s and -----AX for the '07s. seems to enter regen sooner.

Try 55mph instead of 60+mph. Rumor has it the regen works best between 50-60. Please let us know how this problem goes for you.

The rumor isn't true... Turn on your exhaust break and drive it to get the exhaust hot... Mine did that to me the other day and i was in the city I couldn't get over 40mph. but I turned my EB on and drove her to get hot.. and the cat full light went off and I got 80% then 70% then system ok... You just have to remeber that the regen doen't kick on until the dpf hits 1500 degrees... and it takes a max of 20 minutes for the regen cycle to burn through..

I agree. Run the EB all the time. Although, a couple of the Hot Shotters said it was dangerous to do it in the rain and snow especially hauling a load. The OM states that the EB gets the EGTs up which is what the DPF needs. 1000 degrees or better. I run mine all the time and I'm not running 70mph for more than 15min.

Last night was going to go for a drive and started the truck and it said system ok. The cat full message was displayed when it was shut down. Went for a drive anyways and it showed system ok the whole time. What gives??

I use the eb and real jakes in big motors in all weather...

Let me put it like this...if you wreck or have an accident and blame the eb or jake cause you had it on......

get a bicycle, you have no business driving anything

Your either a driver or steering wheel monitor... you decide what it is you're up to

when my 07.5 does this i take the truck out of town and run it in either 3rd or 4th gear at around 2100-2500 rpms and it usually cleans the system out in about 6-7 miles. it was what i was told to do by a local diesel mechanic.

You know guys its to bad that there has to be threads like this! What a horrible system these are when you have to drive your truck a certain way, not idle, and then still every so often make a special trip for 20-45mins to clean everything up....not to mention that there is a chance it will only work a few times before you have to go to the dealer! Just think how much time and fuel money has been spent on this problem!

yes but you have to remember that the crappy fuel mileage and all the extra driving required to keep the system operating properly are very friendly to the environment. i thought we all knew that driving more and burning more fuel was better for the environment:confused013:

The EPA boys must have had a very different logical reasoning course than the rest of the world....but the goverment boys are never wrong are they? Guess I will still go along destroying the world by getting 24 mpg and not going on any "help the enviroment by driving no where for 45 miles at 13 mpg" road trips! The shame I feel!
:hehe:
