Very brief when the truck does it, maybe 3-5 seconds(if that long), very noticeable though, not violent, but noticeable, then it clears up like nothing is wrong.
When the truck is in "Regen", at a steady speed on level road, I notice the Boost Gauge drop to almost 0(zero) unless I give it gas or start up a hill, so I'm wondering if something may be getting stuck when the truck tries to come out of "Regen", because when it does come out of "Regen", the Boost Gauge jumps right back up to about 9psi after the truck clears up, or the gauge will jump back up immediately if it doesn't hesitate.
Either way, I've felt the truck do it whether on level ground, going up a hill, or coming down a hill.
Sometimes the truck will not do it at all when it comes out of "Regen"
The condition is very random, and does not happen that often and I would not be able to duplicate the issue if I had too. Vehicle speed doesn't seem to matter, I've felt the truck do it when running 55 through 75mph.
The truck only has 16,500 miles on it, I don't have a mileage average for how often it goes into "Regen", but I recently drove to St. Louis and back, roughly 3,500 mile total for the trip, and the truck Regen'd 5 times, and 2 of those 5, I felt the truck hesitate when it came out of "Regen"
As far as fuel quality goes, I like to think I'm putting in the best fuel around, which in the case of living down here(Key West), I get my fuel from the Naval Air Station, since the base has a high volume of diesel vehicles, and when I travel, I do my best to get fuel from truck stops I.E. "Loves" or "Flying-J".
I use "Power Services" Cetane Boost on a regular basis, not sure if that would have anything to do with it
Climate conditions for the most part is high humidity down here, unless I travel north to the mainland, where the humidity drops a bit.
The only recalls that have been done on the truck is the injector recall, and the CAC replacement, however no difference in the truck with these two changes.
Sorry this is so long Brotha, and I greatly appreciate your help with this, I'm just trying to anticipate everything you may want to know about the truck.
