Wife traded Acura TL for 2008 F350 King Ranch Dually
Love her to death... but this is all new to me. We bought a fifth wheel and she was determined to get a truck. She saw a King Ranch, fell in love with the interior and decided to get it.
While driving it, I noticed the regen never shut down once, was constant for a couple hundred miles. Started reading about EGR and DPF deletes and their effect on regen. Looked under the truck, and noticed previous owner already installed a dpf delete. Not sure if there is an EGR delete, however...
The used car dealer she bought it from wants to do us right and said his mechanic recommended a tuner, which he ordered (from Ebay). After reading about the dpf deletes on the forum, I asked him what model he ordered, he didn't know, but forwarded the info to me. It was a SCT 3015. I went to their website, and sure enough, it doesn't have dpf delete as an option on that model, but the 3250 does.
Dealer received the tuner on Thursday, I called him on Tuesday and he admits that the regen cycle still occurs, but he got the check engine light off. I informed him of above and he wasn't aware of it.
I don't know if I should order a tuner or not. I just want the dpf delete to be turned off in the computer rom. I'm not looking for any performance boost, just want the wife not to worry.
Any suggestions on how to fix this for her?
