Keeps going into regen

Truck is an 08 Job 1 F350 with 75k, just curious how long they are supposed to be in regen for, Are they supposed to tell you when they are done? because mine never seems to or i just miss it.

The reason i ask is because it flashed that it was cleaning the filter (naturally as i was almost home) so i just kept driving for another 15 minutes or so figuring that would be plenty then i parked it for the night. Well today i got up and it started into regen again as i drove to town which is about ten miles. Parked and had dinner and when i got back in it started cleaning again.

Had it for a year and have never had this problem, do i need a new dpf? Mine seems to pour a good deal of black smoke out, and according to the searches i did on this site the dpf could be cracked.

Any comments or advice would be nice, i do not have a programmer or scanner and the truck is all stock. Thanks!

The truck doesn't tell you when a regen is complete automatically. You can do a system check which will scroll through and tell you whether or not it's cleaning exhaust filter. Some regents will last longer than others. I've had some that last for close to an hour if not longer. If you're blowing some black smoke, you're DPF is probably toast. Mine was cracked with less than half the amount of miles you have and I've read of some going even sooner than mine did. The engine/powertrain warranty took care of mine and it should take care of yours too.

Alright, i called the dealer and they pretty much told me the same thing. A delete is in the future, but not until the truck is paid for, so if i can get the dealer to fix something under the warranty i'm going to.

I have a good length trip this weekend so that should give me a pretty good idea of whats going on.

the biggest killer of your truck is the regen process...

If a doctor told you "Hey, I'll give you free medical care/treatment for the next three years, but ONLY if you eat a teaspoon of rat poison every morning with breakfast", would you take him up on it?

Drunk on diesel has a good point. Dont wait to delete, do it now, especially with the epa trying to throw their weight around lately.
