This code indicated the DPF is clogged with to much ash. The truck I assume is trying to perform a regeneration to clean it out and is failing. There are TSBs for this code for reprogramming the PCM. There was also a recall for DPF concerns. IN most cases when it gets to this point the DPF needs to be removed and cleaned out and or replaced. Do you have tools with you to remove the DPF and see if you can clean it out somewhat on the roadside?

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5 star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris

I have tools!! How would I go about doing this? My truck didn't indicate any need for regeneration
Dodge Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 11 months ago

Here are the steps to remove the DPF. https://www.dropbox.com/s/i7rs13bbm0920nj/DPF.pdf?dl=0

One off you can bang on it to help free up the ash restricting it in hopes it can dump out without compressed air and fluids to wash it out on the road side.

Can I drive my truck without cleaning it?? I need to get home, will it harm my truck?
Dodge Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 11 months ago

I doubt you will make matters worse, it is just going to run poor.

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
