Contaminated exhaust fluid

Little help please, my fathers 2011 is giving him a "contaminated exhaust fluid" warning. From what I have read he needs to drain the fluid and replace it with new. The truck has roughly 200k miles and has had no other issues. He has retired and hardly drives the truck so is been sitting a lot. Can some tell me how to drain the exhaust fluid? Thanks!

when the dealership checked mine for being contaminated, they dropped the whole tank. sorry mine was under warranty so I didn't do it myself.

anyway it wasn't actually contaminated fluid on mine, it was the DEF pump that went out.

Dpf delete and straight pipe that baby. Make it last another 200k and ya dont have to worry and def anymore, i would since its not covered under warranty anymore. it owuld be a hell of alot cheaper than droppin that tank and probably being outta comminsion for awhile.

He bought it when the 2011's came out in early 2010. He was a General Superintendent for a large commercial contractor and traveled the southeast checking on projects as well as every weekend traveling to his farm in Arkansas from Georgia. Now that he has retired to the farm the truck sits a lot or is only driven short distances.

Ok, I will have to research that. What will happen to the error codes, how is the limp mode bypassed? Seems like with all the computer controls etc, error codes would be an issue. Thanks!

You would have to tune it to delete it but once you do that the tuner takes care of all the computer systems so there is no check engine lights or anything.
