Excessive Regen Cycles

My truck is a 2011 F250 w/ around 26k miles on it. I have been getting around 2-3 regens per tank. When it is was new I got around 1 regen per tank...with similar driving habits. My wife brought the truck in the the dealer for the normal oil change and mentioned the regen issue. They called her back and told her that the exhuast valves (I'm assuming in the exhuast system) are bad and they are going to replace them. Has anyone had this issue or had the dealer say something simular?

Hmmm. I have a 2012 and want to say my does it 2-3 times per tank. I travel mostly short highway trips. (30 miles one way). I only have 2800 miles on it so far. I'll have to keep an eye on it and see. Runs great and I get about 20mpg.

When I get the truck back my wife is going to take it on a cross country trip. That should really tell me if what the dealer found was the problem or not. Either way I'm really considering deleting this summer so these little things are not an issue once my warranty runs out.

I'm going from Glendale, AZ up to Washington state this next weekend, so I will try and keep an eye on it and see if their is any differance compared to my short trips to my long drive. I hope others post up their findings.

I had a similiar issue with mine, along with a turbo going out...the first question the dealer mechanic asked "when was the last time you filled the def tank, and where did you buy the fluid from". He said the condition of the fluid will affect the frequency of the regens. I am not sure how much the fluid condition would affect the regens, just passing on what he told me.

How did you know that your turbo was going out?

I took it in to the dealer since the truck was not running normal and it was doing a regen every 70miles on the interstate. The turbo was the techs diagnosis. Been fine ever since the new trubo was put in.(July 2012)
