Hi there, I am Cam.

96G of soot is very bad. Normally these run 0-30 and burn off. So this is likely one of a couple issues.
First off this could be a failing indirect injector that puts the fuel into the exhaust to burn the soot off.
Second is a faulty temp sensor that monitors the system.
Third, this could be just the lack of driving conditions to allow a burn off.

So it would help me to know what codes you have.

I have a banks tuner the code is p02e0
Chevy Mechanic: GM Tech (Cam), Chevy Technician replied 7 months ago

That code is for the intake air valve(throttle) on the passengers side front of the engine. Does it clear if you clear it? Is that unplugged or damage to the throttle valve?
