Partical Filter ?

What would cause this to be cloged and have to be replaced at only 4500 miles? The mechanic said maybe a bad tank of diesel ?

Are you talking about an 08 or your 05?

I have heard in one of the forums that Ford was having problems with some of the DPF filters in some of the 08's. Some of them weren't going into Regen mode like they were supposed to.

Well Metro is right and that problem is fixed simply with a new computer reflash from Ford....no biggie, but it sounds like maybe your Dad got one of the first 2008 that had the flame throwing issue that could have damaged the DPF before the dealer could reflash the computer with the new update....the bad tank of diesel wouldn't make sense because you would notice the fact that the truck would be running like sh!t and one tank I don't think would be enough to ruin the DPF

Well mine was a flamethrower back in FEb 07,before the reflash had came out ( Iwish I had not had it fixed , it was way cool and no one would tail gate me at all!!). But the dpf lasted until 2 months ago at 71,000 miles it went out . But Ford will replace it if it fails under the 36,000 or 36 months or so I was told.

A bad tank of diesel could cause plugging. But I doubt that is what happened. If the sulfur content did not meet ULSD requirements and was the old 500 ppm, the sulfur could eventually strip the coating off of the DOC. This would not allow enough temperature to be generated from the engine, and you would eventually begin fail regenerations. Even if it never failed a regeneration, it would not fully clean it and parts could eventually become plugged.
What is more likely, is that Ford has many bugs that they have had to work out with the 2007 trucks. They can fix all of them with reflashing the computer. Whenver you get the truck serviced, ask about getting it reflashed. They've fixed most of the bugs, but there will be a few more popping up and they'll get them too.
