particulate filter clog?

How common is this problem?

I had the truck chipped with a edge chip and I am thinking that it has caused the filter to get clogged.



Has anyone had a stock truck get a clogged filter?

If you post this in the performance section, not the problems, I bet you'll get a better response. I think that I've heard people say that they will clog evenutally tho, and a chip/programmer that does not delete the DPF will only speed up that process.

yes, i would say depending upon the problem it can be, not straight up clogged but when i had my edge and left it in the extreme in around town driving my turck would go into regen atleast 2 or 3 times a fill up, then when i was driving to colorado my truck had a hug lag!,, 3 days later i was pulling my 30ft enclosed trailer with 2 atvs in the tow tune, my truck went into a shut off mode... there i was 4 miles out of town with my trailer( but i had my 4 wheelers ) i guess my egt had gotten to hot,, it was right after a regen cycle and i was going down hill and my truck gave me the ull over safely alert on the dash,, i wound up disconnecting the batterys for an hour to reset the ecm, the tow truck was pulling up as i fired my truck back up. hope this helps, and so caution if you use the edge ( or any dp tuner) always let your truck finish the regen and i would only use the chip on the highway when it can be burned straight out!
