Where are you Chris?
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Is that everything for $28.00
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Please give me answer or i want refund $28.00, don't tell anything that I already know, or refund me $28.00
Dodge Mechanic: Chris, Shop Foreman replied 3 years ago
ok, well what it means is that the DPF is full and a regeneration procedure needs to be done. This can only be done by either driving the van at freeway speeds for about 20 miles, or with a scan tool. Does the van run ok?

Dodge Mechanic: Chris, Shop Foreman replied 3 years ago
One other thing you may be able to do is to remove the DPF and have it cleaned out with a steam type pressure washer.

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
i don't know part number for DPF, what does mean DPF
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Only that i know, should fix or replace Diesel Particulate Filter, ok, found out DPF i Diesel particulate Filter
Dodge Mechanic: Chris, Shop Foreman replied 3 years ago
Ok, to clean up the DPF, remove it from the exhaust system. Then use a hot/steam type of pressure washer and clean it out by spraying it through both ends. Keep doing this until the water flows out clear. Then reinstall the DPF and have your friend reset the computer with his scan tool. That should work for you.
I hope this has helped,

Yes that is the correct code. So do the clean procedure that I said, and then clear that code with the scan tool.
