It regenerated.... but he is only traveling 40mph....
Can he increase. He needs to get to Boise, which is about 4 hours away

Thanks for thew reply.

The Diesel Particulate Filter is part of the exhaust system and is an emissions related item. The message you are getting is because this exhuast filter is no almost full and the computer has de-rated the engine............meaning it has reduced the engine power until this is corrected.

The process to correct this called a "regen" and it is a procedure that is initiated with a scan tool to force the engine to burn off the accumulated ash that is built up in the filter.

If your spouse is close to a dealer, then I would suggest he make that his priority stop, before the filter gets too full and the engine is de-rated even further.

Bit of a pain to deal with on a road trip, but it you can address it right now it will be well worth it.

I hope that helps to shed some light on this for you but if you need anything further just let me know.

Thanks.

did you call him?
He stopped, and when he started up it said it had regenerated. He is an hour from Wells and most likely nothing is open.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
also.... I got cut off from my first call somehow I have been charged double..

Unfortunately I am not able to make calls from here, so you will need to relay my information to him or wait until another expert can make a phone call. Your choice.

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.
