Smarty 6.7 and exhaust question

740 Views 7 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  rbmedic75
I am going to make a long story short. I bought an 07 Dodge. The check engine light was on when I bought the truck. I drove two hours to get the truck and thought I got a good deal. They told me it was some module to be fixed and I have a signed piece of paper saying that. Took the truck to a local dealer after two failed attempts by the dealership I bought the truck from to see what the problem was. Found out it needs a new DPF. The truck was a fleet lease vehicle and whoever drove it gutted the cat.

My question is can I turn off the dpf regeneration and unbolt the exhaust behind the gutted cat for a couple of weeks until my full exhaust comes in? My smarty will be in on monday.

The computer says exhaust filter 100% full, power reduced see dealer. The dealer is not returning calls, and I am in the middle of getting an attorney, but I need the truck and all its power. My plan is to get rid of the dpf anyway, but I want the good emissions parts in case I ever sell the truck or my county starts requiring e check. Any responce would be appreciated.

Thanks

Scott

I asked them and they said they were safe, but I tried to find them online to double check, I expect nothing but lies from these guys.

be careful continuing to run the truck that sounds like the same message that pipeguy got on his truck and run it for a few more days until it finally shut its self down and even the Dodge dealer couldnt fix it had to get a new ECM shipped from Chrysler. But no you cant turn the dpf off until you have your smarty and download the ME software and then load it to your truck then you can take it off and throw it through the dealers you bought it from's big plate glass showroom window with a note that says here is the module that needed replaced :banghead:
