Problem Persists, Extremely PO'D

I posted this in the problems forum, but I'm putting it here too in hopes someone has some idea of what's going on. Original thread posted 02/03. Read on, please. Although I'd love to melt my computer, this is a family friendly site so I'll keep it G rated.

Well campers, here I am again...same problem. What the heck is going on with my truck? The dang thing went into limp mode twice on the way to work. Same code...P0652. Luckily, this time, I was able to clear it both times and get on into the dealer. They thought they had it fixed last time...I guess not. I'm darn near ready to get rid of it and go back to a gasser. Yeah, I know, they have problems too, but the one I traded in for this truck didn't and I'm sorry now that I traded it. Do I sound PO'd? It's because I am. I paid too much money for this truck not to trust it anymore and always wonder if it's gonna strand me somewhere at any moment and with no friggin' warning. I don't care if they swear on a stack of bibles and say beyond a shadow of a doubt that it's fixed, chances are I won't be taking any road trips in it. I can just see myself out in the middle of BF nowhere with no cell service and nothing for miles in any direction and it craps out again. I'm getting real tired of the truck spending more time at the dealer than in my driveway and I may just be in the market for a new truck.

Yeah, it is, but not for much longer. The dpf pressure sensor has been changed, along with the egr sensor and the accelerator pedal assembly (which I think includes a sensor). They seem to think now it is the egt sensor. I guess we'll see, but I'm beginning to think they don't have a flippin' clue and are just taking shots in the dark. They keep driving it trying to get it to limp, but the problem with that is it's intermittent and may not limp again for two weeks. That's why when they say it's fixed, I think "Really? You thought that last time too, yet here I am, back in your shop." Some other places I've read say it could be the ECM. I guess that will be the next "it's really fixed this time" song and dance when it craps out again.

That's the plan. I've got a check coming next week and I'm using it to order the delete package. Hopefully that will fix it once and for all.

You are going to be so happy when you delete that thing!! IMHO, it's the ONLY WAY to own one.... I truly wouldn't have this truck if I couldn't delete it. Warranty.... Who cares, it's way more reliable and less hastle to delete it and be done! Good decision to scrap that garbage under the truck and tune it!

Thanks, guys. I truly appreciate the words of encouragement. I am so looking forward to being deleted and tuned. I really struggled with the decision of not deleting to keep the warranty in tact vs. deleting to gain improved performance, etc. Well, the later won out. I get angry every time a regen starts, to say nothing of the ongoing limp mode issues. It's gonna be so nice to have all that behind me in a few days. Speaking of limp mode, they were finally able to get it to limp at the dealer yesterday so now they have a starting point to work a solution from. I should have my baby back by the end of the week, if not sooner. I know, I said I was ready to get rid of it earlier in this thread, but I was just back from taking it to the dealer for the third time with this problem and I was a little PO'd at that moment. I have no intention of getting rid of the truck...just want her to run right.
