    particulate filter ?

    Ask him to point it out to you in the service manual. He can't.
    But, to be fair, there are places that "clean" dpfs by heating, cleaning and blowing out. Typically, this is for highway tractors.
    $300 service vs thousands.


    Also, there are cleaners you can inject directly into the DPF (like carb cleaner) to remove carbon and such, but, I don't know if one should use this type of product with our SCRs.

    Eventually, the DPF will have to be cleaned or replaced. There are DPF cleaning services out there. That is the cost of trying to clean the air to breathe. I think this dealer may be trying to get money in a service that may not be needed as often as they say is needed.

    This is from an email that I recently received from the EPA, where I requested clarification on emission systems warranty.

    The diesel SCR catalytic converter, Diesel oxidation converter, and the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) are considered catalytic converters covered under the 8
    year/80,000 mile warranty

    But, is cleaning them considered maintenance?

    To me, just another reason to get the GDE tune.

    I think once warranty is over the best thing is to go full delete , It seem's like all the diesel truck's are having problems with the exhaust systems from our truck's to the cummins and fuso and isuzu truck also from what I have herd

    Ditto. Like the EPA says. There is a letter floating around too.

    To me, a delete would be where it is cost prohibitive to keep it on. I would like to be somewhat responsible to the environment for the kids and future grandkids. I don't want to be the "let them figure it out" type of person.
