    Lag Gone!

    Like others, I had the dreaded lag post AEM update. It slowly got better but never went away.

    Last week I got a P24AE code which is Particulate Matter Sensor. So I took it to the dealer and also mentioned the lag. They kept the truck for a few days and had their head mechanic who is allegedly a diesel guru look at it. He told them to change the catalytic converter when they installed new sensors. (BTW, all under warranty).

    For a week now it has run like a new truck - no lag! Yesterday I loaded my dump trailer with logs and hauled them away. I intentionally left the truck cold as my driveway has a small hill and it would barely pull the hill until the truck warmed up. Still no lag! I have my fingers crossed. I'm having a hard time accepting that only one mechanic can figure this out. But I'm not complaining!

    Which catalytic system - DEF or DPF? There are two.

    Some suffering with that issue might surely be interested. Thanks.

    could be the whole DPF canister , containing the DOC.
    DOC = Diesel Oxidation Catalytic Converter
    ..
    first portion in the canister . would go with the replaced sensor .

    I guess I'll be praying for that code so I can take my truck in and tell them what to change
