2014 6.7 stock truck making black smoke
I have a 2014 f350 platinum (just stating so options are known) that I bought used @ about 150K mi. This is my second 6.7 powerstroke and I deleted my other one myself at about 70K mi so I'm familiar with the truck fairly well. My problem is my current truck is stock with EGR and DPF all in place, no tuning that I am aware of, yet it is making black smoke at reasonable throttle percentages in any gear and in any situation, not just from stop to go. It recently has thrown codes P2A01 and P207F. It also seems to make somewhat poor fuel economy IMO (about 16avg on highway). The truck runs like a top, shows absolutely no signs of injector or turbo issues of any sort and has power like crazy just makes smoke through the DPF. My other concern is I have driven the truck for approaching 3K mi now and only seen it regen one time and it lasted for about 3min and never throttled up to 2K at all, just idled. I intended to delete the truck when I bought it, and am about ready to order some parts to do so but I dont want to delete DPF and EGR and find out theres an electrical issue of some sort after that.
Any ideas from anyone??
I do currently have a OBD scanner so I can throw some numbers from sensors out too if anyone can tell me what some standards are to compare with.
Also unrelated (hopefully): the steering wheel controls for radio and such mostly dont work, in other words some buttons do nothing, some perform an incorrect function, and some do nothing at all. I figured this was due to the switches getting wet at some point or something and have not swapped anything yet to see if it fixes anything.
Anything helps, thanks!
