Got a friend who was nearly stranded in the mountains because of that blasted DPF system...

Yeah...ya gotta "blow" them out once in a while. A friend of mine who owns a small construction company has run Ram trucks forever. He started having problems with the new ones with the DPF system as they idle a lot in the winter. After a few trips to the dealer (about 60 miles away from him) a tech told him about just getting them good and hot to move the material out of the filter and the system...in other words, blow them out and make them smoke!

Seems like that's kind of defeating the purpose of the DPF but, hey, what works, works. He hasn't had to make a trip back to the dealer for this issue since that visit.

I have my tuner set to clear the codes on start up for now. I can't get my truck to smoke at all with the chip set on 5. Just smokes the 37's.... and away we go.

I hate spending money on this truck when I need to spend money on the SRT.>>>>>>.lol

That's what I'm afraid of, Don't need it breaking down in the mountains. The DPF just sucks the mileage out of this truck too. Hunting season putting threw the woods I managed 9.7 mpg. THAT SUCKS.
