First Regen

I did not find a “First Regen” thread, so I started my own.

I have been waiting for my first Regen to happen, and was wondering If I just haven’t noticed it yet. Well finally happened yesterday. When I shut the engine off, I heard a strange sound coming from the engine.

A quick search of this forum, and I find out it’s called “Flutter”. I popped the hood, and fired her back up again. While I was looking at the air filter monitor, the idle speed kicked up by itself. And I heard a very strange sound coming from the fender well.

Best way to describe it is it sounds like a gas dryer burner turning on and off. I did notice the smell of hot metal and paint burning. I did not know how long the truck wanted to run the regen cycle, but I had read that it likes a constant RPM. So I took her out on the interstate for a few miles. I figured the constant airflow under the chassis during the regen cycle would be a good thing.

However, when I got home and put her in park with the parking brake set…, she went right back into Regen mode. So I just let her run to see how long she took. She ran in Regen for 4 minutes and returned to normal idle. My first Regen was at 35 engine hours and 950 miles.

So is it possible to get a retune to have it dump fuel to get flames out of the tailpipe like that video before the recall?? =) haha

I suppose so, but the only way that would work was if your DPF was in place, and it would be so long before you damage it and have to replace it....and at $2500 a pop.....its a little pricey for a flame show, haha
