quick question..

How many of you non-tuned 6.7 owners see black smoke from your exhaust when accelerating from a stop or towing? I have been complaining to my dealership here that I am getting a ton of black smoke, well, maybe not a ton, but a whole heck of a lot as compared to when I first bought it. They tell me that there is no criteria that says I cant have black smoke or soot in the tail pipe. I am conteplating asking for a new DPF, since mine is obviously not working as it is supposed to work. Opinions welcome. thanks.

Completely stock 2011 here and have yet to see the dreaded black cloud in my rearview! Keep us posted on your outcome.

I washed the truck up today, and cleaned the exhaust tip with some simple green and steel wool. Cleaned up nice, but this should give the dealer an idea of how much soot I'm blowing passed the DPF by seeing how much sticks to the inside of the tip.

No smoke what so ever. Infact I have 37k mi on it and the exhaust is just as clean as the day I bought it almost a year ago. Sounds like your DPF is faulty.

Hmmm...I'm using the iPad app and cannot read sigs, assuming that's how you were able to tell.

Could the excessive smoke be an indicator of turbo issues? Does it still pull hard?

There you go.


Rob, have you seen the "Cleaning Exhaust Filter" message as much as usual or has it been smoking since you purchased it?
