Most diesel vehicles often experience issues in their exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and diesel particulate filter (DPF) system. Their jobs are to reduce carbon emissions, but if they're not in optimal working condition, a faulty EGR and DPF system can end up putting unnecessary load on your engine.
Like the EGR, the diesel particulate filter (DPF) serves a similar purpose by trapping soot from the exhaust in its honeycomb-shaped exhaust pipe, storing it, and then burning it off. This also reduces carbon emissions.
These two systems are necessary for the proper operation of your truck but can run into problems if they are not serviced regularly.
DPF CLEANING & MAINTENANCE
The diesel particulate filter (DPF) is an exhaust after-treatment device that traps particulate matter such as soot and ash. Your DPF system should be cleaned every 200,000 miles to avoid problems.
If these issues are ignored for too long, your engine may start acting up. A clear indication of this is when the dreaded yellow REGEN light appears on your dashboard.
EGR coolers have two failure modes: plugging with soot, which restricts the flow of the gasses through the system, and fractures inside the cooler from thermal cycling and the constant pressure applied to the system.
It is vital to get your EGR system checked for any malfunctions to avoid further complications in your engine. Also, make sure to take your vehicle to a professional for timely EGR cleaning and EGR replacement if necessary.
