08 f350 lost power on drive today

I was pulling my lawn trailer today when I pulled off from a stop sign and my truck like fell on its face and Lost power then picked back up. While I was looking at my gauges to see if I was loosing boost, the cleaning exhaust reading popped up in the display window and stayed on for about a mile and went off. It ran kinda crappy at this point. It's all stock and never had this trouble before. When I got home I put it in neutral and reved it and it stalled out at low rpms. I killed it and tinkered under the hood at all the obviousand cranked it back up. Running normal know but very worried at the cause of this. All the gauges were in the normal range when it was running like crap so I was wondering if it had sumpm to do with the exhaust cleaning proses. It usually stays on for about five miles or so before it kicks off.

Possibly a clogged DPF, but usually you would see white smoke out the back with that but not always.

I'm no diesel mechanic by far but friends have told me that when the cleaning exhaust filter is displayed that you should allow your tuck to run until It cleans itself.

That's the best thin to do is to let the cycle complete on dpf equipped vehicles. Continually not letting the cleaning exhaust cycle finish will eventually cause issues.
