My truck slowed down and it has a particulate trap 1 code...

Customer Question
Hello, my truck slowed...

Hello, my truck slowed down and it has a particulate trap 1 code... is a 2013 peterbilt with a cummins engine

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Truck Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

Alright..

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your truck yourself? What have you tried so far?

No, I haven't try anything yet... its too cold out ( 0 dregrees, feels -17) and just trying to diagnose now

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the truck mechanic to know before I connect you?

That temperature is frigid and yesterday other drivers did a regen on the engine and it seems that didn't work

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you with your question today.

I'm an independent contractor and I don't get paid until a rating has been made.

We can go back and forth as needed to help resolve the issue you are having. Follow ups are free after ratings, so rate in confidence!

What is the code number you have? I am asking because this time of year when it is cold out, you could have issues like faceplugging which will not allow the pressure to build to get a good regen done, high soot loads with the burn out not getting hot enough to do a full regen, frozen DEF fluid which will not allow a regen to complete. There are several others, but these are the most common for the description you have, but it can be narrowed down more if I had the code number.

You want a 5 star service and I want to provide a 10 star service. Please consider that I don't know your skill level as well as I can't see, touch, smell, hear the vehicle/machine in question. Please provide as much detail as possible and I will provide as much I can back to you.

Once an answer is provided, you should see a rating screen. Please rate my personal service to you. The ratings are my personal feedback, they are not the site feedback.

Please note: The site does the phone call requests, not I. I do not generate the request. Same as the memberships. The only thing I ask for is a positive 5 star rating, when we are finished, for my personal service to you.

Thank you for allowing me to assist you through Just Answer!

I see you viewed this and this is still showing as an open question due to no positive (3 stars or more) rating.

Did you still need assistance with this?

Do you need more time to resolve the issue?
