Customer Question

my 2008 chevy duramax broke down in Healy Alaska due to the code P2463 soot accumulation particulate filter restriction. We had to abandon the truck to get home and I have to figure a way to go get it. What does this mean and what do I need to get to make the truck run again? I want to go there with the right parts thanks

Customer: about 56,000 miles. we just put on about 1500 miles on this current trip
JA: What is the model of your '08 Chevy?
Customer: 2500 sierra 4 door***** It is the work truck model
JA: Are you fixing your Sierra yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: nothing because we have no parts there
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: the truck went into engine safe mode and will only drive like 20 or 25 miles per hour. We did reset the codes once but that only worked for a few minuets
