Smoking during every Regen

For the past few weeks my 2009 6.4L F250 smokes for about 20-30 seconds, ONLY during regen, ford said this is normal.

But it only started doing this about 4000 miles ago?

Also, has anybody had trouble with the stock exhuast clamp coming loose and the tail pipe rattling?? mine has been in the shop 4 times for a stupid calmp, last time Ford finally welded it together!!

mine smoked during regen at 55k.. didn't do it every time.. but a lot of the time.. i finally said the hell with it, and deleted and tuned my truck.. no more smoke or regens.. and my truck runs 10 times better... I will never go back to a DPF on truck..

I got a little white smoke under moderate acceleration during regen as well. From how many times this has been brought up on here I feel pretty confident in saying it's "normal." Just delete the thing and you won't have to worry about it. Once deleted you'll kick yourself for not doing it sooner, and your truck will thank you!!

That your tailpipe is already loose will be a help when you delete.
