NEW PTCM UPDATE FOR 6.4

Dealership called me today and told me to bring it in to get the new update that is supposed to alleviate reduced power, excessive smoke during regen, and unusual engine noise. I'm going it 1:00. I didn't mean to put PTCM, just PCM

Ok, I got it done today as well as changed the upper rad hose because it was leaking. Not covered under Premium ESP. That cost, with 10% discount, $160.77. Anywho on to the reflash.... this is what it says it fixes...
"In some of the affected vehicles, customers could experience one or a combination of the following symptoms: illuminated Malfunction Indicator Light or Wrench Light, runs rough, reduced power, excessive smoke from the exhaust, fuel smell from crankcase, coolant loss, and/or unusual engine noise. These symptoms could be caused by concerns that may eventually result in significant engine damage and a lengthy, costly repair. Ford has developed calibration improvements to the PCM with improved fault detection capabilities that allows the vehicle to quickly detect and react to issues before damage occurs."

Also I noticed that the "Cleaning Exhaust Filter" message stays illuminated until it's completed like they used to.

I can't exactly remember what the Mechanic said but something that used to take its reading from the Exhaust Back pressure sensor is now getting its reading from 3 other sensors.

Do flashes like this affect trucks with tuners (will it mess up the files loaded by the tuner)? I don't have a tuner yet, looking at the mini max but just wondering what happens when they reflash you pcm when you have a tuner or are going to have one in the near future.

Just curious.

Im thinking , if my truck is dpf delete and tuned, then All the problems addressed in the flash were fixed when I did the delete and tune..The new flash is their attempt to minimize some of the negative effects of having a DPF. It may help for those that have the DPF equipped truck?
