Soot burner turned on today

Well my dad has had his 08 loaded out KR f250 crew cab FX4 for a week now. He loves it. Well anyways he called me today and said his truck kept idling up to 1200 rpms. He was thinking something was wrong with it. . I wondering how many people are gonna go to the dealership thinking their trucks are screwed up?

BTW the truck will average roughly a 1,000 miles a week working in the oil fields. Ill keep everybody updated on MPGs and mileage reports. As of now he averaging around 14-15 mpg. No probs yet.



BTW the tr

All of the emissions controls and regeneration are explained in the "Owner's Guide" and "Diesel Suppliment".

I am supprised that it went into regeneration this soon, it must idle or not be worked particularly hard.

Ya, when my new dodge went to high idle the first time it scared the crap out of me since I was outside the truck as the rpm's started rising it sounded like a plane getting ready to take flight, I didn't know if I should run away or what.

I think there's more unknown about these dpf's and how they will work in real life, don't know about the Ford but the Dodge book says if the truck is not worked hard enough then you'll get a 80% full code and you'll have to take it up to the high way and drive for 20 minutes and that's about all it says, I've heard the dealers will be able to do the regen in the shop with some kind of program? I read there's some pretty heavy smoking going on for a short period during regen clean out, forgot if that was Ford or Dodge or both.
I haven't experianced it yet since my truck will not be in service for another week or so.

The harder you drive an '07 emissions diesel the LESS trouble the emisssions system will be to you.

A couple of WOT passes a day will do the trick and a couple of smokey burnouts never hurt :93C_peelo

I'm worried with my driving habits that I wont work it hard enough, alot of short trip driving in town even when cold and over all only put 65,000 miles on in 12 years with my present service truck, the only thing going in my favor is that the truck will be heavy everyday with service body and equipment probably 11,000 pounds, plus about half the time another 1500 to 2000 pounds of materials, that should make it sweat a little.
