Talking Driving me crazy

I own my first diesel F250. I am still learning the nuances of diesel. These exhaust filter cleaning messages have been worrying me. Usually they clean and go away. Now the message says "filter overloaded. Drive to clean." I have a road trip tomorrow so hopefully the extended drive time will wok. Thanks for the info.

Thanks. Lots of great info here. I am enjoying the heck out of my 250 after 15 great years with a 150.

Welcome to the site, toso2121; I wanted to touch base and see how your trip went. Are you still getting the message? What's your truck's model year/mileage? I'm here to help.

Haha, oh yeah, been there. I thought I was good on fuel until I rolled into a tiny little town with one gas station and an "Out of Service" bag over the only diesel pump. Probably didn't want that fuel anyway. Barely made it to the next town, thanks to the unexpected regen burning off extra fuel.

Just to second what others have said, OCR is an option on those trucks which do not have the 4.2" LCD screen. If you have the two-line dot matrix message center carried over from the previous generation, you can get that option.

Talking

Thanks to all. Mine is a 2015 King Ranch F250. It does have the LCD screen. After driving on the highway a while, probably 30 minutes, the message went away. I live in a small town and typically only drive short distances. I guess I just needed to get it on the highway and get the engine temps up for a while. I did notice lower gas mileages during the cleaning time. The way I knew the cleaning was done was that my highway MPGs jumped from about 12 to 18.

Solved. Thanks.

P.S. I was really concerned that this might be one of those issues they engineer in so that you have to keep going back to the dealer for maintenance.

Every once in awhile the truck needs a longer than a quick trip drive to clean the filter out. You did exactly what you are supposed to do.

I have 2011 F250 with 68000 miles and according to Jack Bower Ford the exhaust filter is full and needs replaced. Supposedly due to driving it only eight miles a day. They want $3700.00 to replace it. Always drove complete exhaust cycle when it showed. Apparently the exhaust filter is sensitive to how you drive daily and these trucks should not be drove for short drives. Disappointed this was not made clear and is not addressed in the manual.

I find that hard to believe. The manual states the exhaust filter needs "cleaning " at 120,000 miles and "replacement " at 240,000 miles. You're at half the "cleaning " mileage. Granted that mileage might vary somewhat but I can't imagine it would be off by that much. Driving short distances might trigger more frequent regens and each regen leaves a small amount of ash in the exhaust filter. But I still think the dealer either doesn't know how to fix or just wants to take the easy way out and replace the whole DPF.

One option for about half the money is to delete the exhaust filter and you'll never have this problem again.

Only time someone has needed one replaced is due to the DPF being bad (cracked and defective) or some other cause that rendered it unuseable.


What codes do you have? They should be able to do a manual regen and clean it.
