2010 SuperDuty Smoke and Regen Issues?

Ok.. I have a 2010 F250 Super 46K miles. Recently been getting more and more white smoke. The Regen seems to go off more often, and I was wondering if anyone else has this issue with the 6.4 2010. Unfortunately it would seem this model is not to happy with commuter traffic and the more time I sit in "stop and go ", the worse it is, the smoke gets insane at times billowing from the tailpipe. I live and drive Los Angeles freeways.....I have heard some talk about a software update for the 2010 to help with the regen issue, and if I am correct this year dopes not allow forced regen... any thoughts or info?...Greatly appreciated

Yes, typical DPF issues. Delete it and be done.

Thanx SICK, do you have experience with this model and a recommendation for a kit manufacturer? I can also expect a fuel mileage increase I suspect?

Well yeah, I have a little experience.

To delete it, you must run a tuner as well. Otherwise, the truck will go into limp mode. How much are you looking to spend? If you're not looking for power increase, I would just buy a DPF/CAT delete pipe and an H&S XRT Pro tuner, and program the computer with a stock power level tune that allows the DPF to be removed. This is exactly what I did on my tow rig.

If you don't mind spending a little extra money, I'd spend the extra cash an get a full 4" or 5" exhaust, air intake, and a nice tuner/monitor setup from H&S, Spartan, or SCT.

I also see you are from LA. If so, you also have to keep emissions testing in mind. Just return the truck to stock before taking it to be tested, and you will be fine.

As for fuel mileage increase, my truck was getting around 11 MPG highway before deleting and tuning. Now I can manage around 18-20!

Could be a cracked Y pipe, mines in the shop right now for exactly the same symptoms and thats what they found.

I feel sorry for 6.4 owners who leave their truck stock. That big filter in the exhaust (DPF) is the death of those trucks. You will need a DPF delete pipe and a proper tuner that allowes removal of the dpf. The reliability, fuel mileage, throttle response, and power that is gained is unreal. Beautiful truck by the way. It would also help to run a good fuel additive like diesel kleen every time you fuel up. And not to mention these engines, or any diesel engine really, dont like being babied, or taken on short trips all the time. These trucks have the capability to tow almost anything you can throw at them and pull a house down

I couldn't agree more but mine is still under warranty and my repairs are free of charge so while I'd love to get rid of the DPF and get better mileage, etc. I really don't want to have to pay for the repairs that could come either way.

Yup !

I am in the same boat, I'm under warranty for a while so I'll run it stock as long as I can get by with it. I am going to check my Y-pipe for cracks....If I can at least eliminate smoking out the freeways, I can deal with it.........Thanks Guys.

You will be just fine leaving it stock just make sure you change your oil regularly because of the regen throwing fuel in the oil.. and like i said these engines hate short trips and being babied.. its a good way to quickly fill the dpf up with wet soot, run poorly, and smoke so dont be affraid to lay on it every now and then to clear it up. Run some fuel additive that will help too with the white smoke issue. Just a word of advice

But then you still have potential engine damage looming over your head, and terrible MPG. And the DPF will eventually clog, no matter how well you care for it. At the end of the day, it's still a filter, and will eventually need replacing.
