Your title says it........Cracked DPF. Spartan claims there should not be any additional regens with their DPF on tunes.

I don't believe a cracked DPF affects the regen that much. Check your pipes. If there is black soot in them, remove the tune, take it to the dealer. The DPF is a 1500.00 item and is covered by the 100,000 mile warranty.

What ever you do I would get the DPF replaced. When you sell the truck a new DPF could be a selling point. It should not harm the engine.
