Publication Date: November 6, 2013

FORD:
2011-2014 F-Super Duty

This article supersedes TSB 13-10-12 to update the Customer Information Sheet and Warranty Status.

ISSUE:

Some 2011-2014 F-Super Duty vehicles equipped with a 6.7L diesel engine that are primarily used in a stationary or off-highway type use may exhibit frequent exhaust regeneration attempts, Drive To Clean maintenance messages and/or the wrench light on with diagnostic trouble code (DTC) P2463 for a restricted diesel particulate filter (DPF). The unique operational mode of these vehicles may not easily allow for normal exhaust regeneration and may benefit from OCR capability so the unit can perform regeneration in a stationary setting.

ACTION:

Refer to the Service Procedure Steps for additional details.
