it does it when ever the compooper sences that your particulate filter has to much soot in it (sensors in the exhaust pipe) theirs some deeper tech into it than that but thats about the easiest way to explain it usualy the idle goes up when it goes into regen unless its in gear.

its not suposed to effect the drivability at all all it does is increase the egt's to burn off the soot trapped in the filter

It doesn't effect anything while driving. It stops and waits for the truck to go back to idle.

Maybe it isn't suppose to affect anything while driving but it does. There is a distinct power loss while it is in regen mode. When the truck is in normal mode the truck has very good throttle response at speed...while in regen mode it takes more to get the truck moving. I can see it being a possible issue while towing.

Maybe our gearing hides it a bit. The only time I can tell is when I pull to a stop.

Yeah because when my truck was doing it, it almost felt like the parking brake was on...
