Well I'm too frustrated to spend time searching for this topic so please bare with me... My 08, 6.4l went into regen the other day and when I got to where I was going I shut it off even though it wasn't done. When I started back up the check engine light came on and stayed on. When I got home I hooked up the code reader and had 55 faults which is nearly impossible in my opinion. I cleared them and had 0 come back. When I went out today, I left the code reader hooked up and watched it. No codes came back but it runs like crap. It idles fine but when you get it on it a little it wants to bog down. the check engine light came on but went off after about 10 seconds. Based on earlier experiences years ago, it seems to be an exhaust issue to me. While idling, I can rev the engine to 3k rpms and higher and the boost gauge doesn't move much which seems to support my exhaust theory since it works off of exhaust gases. So my question to the people here is, will removing the dpf and cleaning it and possibly removing the converter completely solve this? I'm not in a position to drop 1500-2000 this week to replace the dpf or do a delete. I've read numerous posts and watched a dozen videos where one was pulled, pressure washed, and replaced with satisfactory results. What do you guys think?
107,000 miles, normal maintenance, no regular heavy loads, no major issues, some smoke from under the cab during regen at times but nothing alarming.
Very frustrated and disturbed
