Okay, I just had the DPF replaced under warranty. Before I took the truck in it was stalling after a 20 minute ride when I would try to back into a parking space. I figured it was just part of the DPF issue. I got the truck back on wednesday. I only drove it a little while on thursday with no issues. I drove to work this morning and went to back into my space and....bam, it stalled.
I shut off the key and sat while the guys I work with laughed at me. After a couple of times cranking it, the truck started. I went to leave work tonight and when I started the truck I noticed the little wrench icon was lit up. I go to pull out of the parking lot and the truck has no power. The boost gauge wouldn't go past the first little mark. No matter how much throttle I gave it, the truck wouldn't go.
The truck eventually got up to half boost, but there's still no power. Also the truck wouldn't shift if I had my foot down. I would have to let off the throttle for it to shift.
I know you guys know what's up with these things. I'm begging you for help. The truck only has 43,800 miles on it. I haven't put 4,000 miles on it. The truck is due for service at 44,250 miles. But could a fuel filter possibly cause all this?

The EPA really hit a home run with this one!!! DPF equipped trucks produce 50% less emissions....but they use twice the fuel
Sounds like Obama math to me!!!!
