Bad DPF or just normal question..

Hey guys, my friend just bought a 10' white f250. It has around 35000 on it. Question is, he has black soot all along the side of the truck after the tailpipes. Also,when he tromps on it it blasts black smoke. Sorry if this is stupid, but is that normal to happen in a diesel or is it the beginning of a clogged DPF?
Thanks!

are you sure it has the dpf still in place? gutted maybe? if it was in place or getting clogged it shouldnt blow any noticable smoke. any sign of a tuner or any other aftermarket parts?

He has the minimaxx monitor on the windshield that it came with. I believe aftermarket exhaust too.

ok. you can be about 99.9% sure it doesnt have a dpf and the smoke is normal. the dpf looks like a damn 55 gal drum barrel inline of the exhaust that starts just after the turbo downpipe.

Yeah, no 55 gallon drum under there and his invoice from the dealer stated that it would not pass emissions. Thanks for your help!!

Good deal. Getting rid of emmisions as soon as the previous owner did helped that truck out tremendously.
