check engine light need help

Had some trouble on friday when I took off from a merge lane into traffic, the truck lost power and turbo boost went to zero and the exhaust started to smoke and stink. I pulled over and in time it started to regain power and gain some boost, I turned the truck off and restarted thats when the check engine light came on and is still on. I came home and the problem cleared up and on saturday it ran fine, the drive to clean exhaust light came on and then cleaning exhaust came on, I drove it for awhile but had to get to work but was not done cleaning. The truck has ran great since then but the check engine light is still on how do you reset it.

thanks todd

Trying taking it to Autozone, Advance, or O'Reilly and get a free reading on that code and then remove both pos battery terminals for a few minutes and see if it will reset, but you want to know that code before you reset it.

sounds like your truck needs a long drive to clean itself out. Best not to interupt the regen process but I understand having to get to work. Sometimes I wish that we could trigger a regn when we had the time for a long drive instead of waiting for the "Cleaning Exhaust Filter" message to come on as I'm pulling into the driveway.

I don't get many regen, cause I drive my truck like I stole it

CrzyFissh67 - any update on this????? Exact same thing happened to me last night and today. Was it the EGR valve or did it seemingly fix itself? I need to pull the code on mine, if it is the EGR valve I would like to get rid of it. Do we need a tuner to do this?

Mine is now in the shop as I type, for the vgr valve and I think the vgr cooler is cracked, so stay on top of this issue. It sounds like this is a on going problem with this motor I hate this truck it has been nothing but trouble. thank god for the warranty.

Brought my truck to my mechanic buddy yesterday. Code 1335 - twice. It read something like EGR valve not in correct position. I believe that this may have happened due to water in the system. Maybe it was because the truck was cold, I heated the garage to about 70 then it got to be about 0 or so again. I probably created some condensation that turned to ice. Just guessing though. Problem has not occurred again and truck is running good again. Thanks for the info about the reoccuring problem. I will look into this, however, I will probably just delete it anyhow. I would not say I hate the truck, I like it actually, and I even have paid for an $1100 radiator and had the rear main seal replaced - and it still leaks, I should bring it in again. I know the trucks are sort of hit and miss and I hope your bad experiences with the truck come to a halt soon. Sorry so long.
