Regen, should I be concerned?

If things don't change and I make it to next Monday It will have been a full month since my truck has gone into regen. Just wondering if I should at all be concerned about this? Seems like a long time to go without one.

Chance are you have not seen the massage that it is doing one.

Unless you have something like the Edge Insight that will notify you the WHOLE time you are going through a regen you probably are just missing it.

IF you really haven't regened in a month I'd be worried. Something could be wrong with the DPF, and the truck could either go into limp mode or constant regen.

In fact I do have the Edge Insight. Haven't seen a single indication.

The last time it went into regen was when I had my hyper extended thermostat and it was in reduced power mode.

I thought it was damaged because of the regen pumping too much fuel in the cylinders and washing the lubrication away.

Explain?

And yes, I might be concerned if I was supposed to have a regens and wasn't having them. How many miles have you logged since the last one?

Yes I heard her say something along those lines also.. I think bottom line is if the dpf is still on the truck it should be doing the regen cycle. If not then bad s$@&! happens.

Then I would take it to have it looked at.

I spoke too soon. It tried to this morning on my way to work but it was just as I pulled into the parking lot. Was ready to go for a long drive when it kicked back on on the way home. Was on for a whopping 6 min then shut off. I never really logged how many miles it was since the last one.
