Cleaning exhaust filter problem

My truck started cleaning the exhaust filter about every 20 miles starting on weds. I brought the truck to the dealer Thurs. I havent heard anything yet from them on what the problem is. I was hoping the display was broke but my avg mpg went from 17.8 to 15.2 so something is definitly wrong. Anyone else have this happen to them?

Not that I've heard of. Sounds like possibly a faulty DPF. Let us know.

Good to see another member near Salt Lake.

It will continue to come on until the sensors in the DPF detect that it the DPF has been cleaned enough so it doesn't trigger a regeneration cycle. Do you let it finish its regen cycle each time it comes on?

Rob, I think so how long does it normally take to finish? I drove the truck for more than an hour after it started happening. Thats when I saw my mpg go down. I starting to wonder if I made the right decision in buying this truck. I had an 08 Tundra and the only thing I brought it in for was oil changes. I have 6500 hundred miles on this truck and its been in the shop 4 times now. Im worried because I didnt even start snow plowing yet and thats when I really start beating on it. I own a painting and snow removal co. we just finished up painting the Layton High School. Go Lancers lol.

Sounds like maybe a leaking injector to me.

It should only take 10-15 minutes I believe to finish the cycle. I do know that a lot of in town driving causes me frequent regen cycles. Highway driving doesn't. Not sure why. I'm curious about the fix, please keep this thread up dated so we can see what was wrong.

I'm sure it a isolated isuue with sensors or something.Don't worry I think you've made a right decision buying this truck,I have 25,000 trouble free miles and know of a few that have very close to 90,000 mi with no troubles.
Ford will make it right and when you get to abuse her you'll be glad you got her.
Oh...btw,please please please don't compare our trucks to a Tundra ever again Thats just NOT right .....
