sorry for the delay

have a look at the diag for this code,it states that the truck needs to run loaded and unloaded for the code to clear,also look at causes on whats causes this code to happen,.take truck for a ride and see if clears but i see we need a step further and check some components how are you with a wrench ??

. Check for active fault codes.Active fault codes present other than Fault Code .Check the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) temperature sensor.

. Check the EGR temperature sensor accuracy.EGR temperature within 10°C [18°F] of ambient air temperature?

.Check the cooling system.

. Check the engine coolant mixture.Engine coolant is proper mixture?

. Check the engine coolant level.Engine coolant level at proper level?

.Check the EGR system.

. Check the EGR differential pressure sensor ports for plugging.Debris or soot found in either EGR differential pressure port?

.Check engine control module (ECM) calibration and clear fault codes.

. Check if an ECM calibration update is available.If a calibration update for this fault code is available, does the ECM contain that revision or higher?

.do you have insite?
