Regen'd 6 times today

As I posted before about not experiencing regen ever since I bought the truck, well today I was doing a lot of short distance driving and experienced the truck going into regen for few seconds 6 times. I could feel the difference in noise and the engine and once it went into regen twice between a short period of like 2 minutes.

Normal? When I got home and let the truck idle for a min or two, I placed my hand near the exhaust tip and it was hot hot hot! Can't wait to remove this stupid DPF system.

Should I worry and call dealer or just wait and safe for the delete? Thanks guys!

If you have the most recent reflash the truck would not be in regen after you put it in park and got out to walk around to the exhaust. If the truck is regen when you place it in park it cancels regen. What you were feeling was probably just the normal tempature of exhaust. And 6 times in one day especially if it is only lasting a couple os seconds seems like alot. My 08 will go in to regen maybe once if I do a bunch of short trips in one day but will last several minutes.

The exhaust will stay extremely hot for a little while after regen while the system cools off and I mean like burn your skin hot.

Mine started to regen quite often and now I have a new thread started about how it left me stranded at a busy intersection. Coincidence? Perhaps, but you never know.

Ummm, even just idling for 10 minutes with 300+ egts will make all the metal hot enough to burn you.

the problem is without a doubt alive and kicking and not just with your truck, but the POSITIVE thing about the subject is that their IS a SOLUTION! at this point with the bull**** DPF, I would imagine the dealer is not as likely to help or inform you. they CANT deal with a hypothetical problems, they type on magic computer, and magic computer tells what to do lol.
you know the fix (delete kit), just gitter done and start loving your powerstroke again!!

As much as i support the delete and love mine, i agree with you to the fullest. you shouldnt have to do this **** and we should not be having problems w/ a new truck like this.
