No.Hi Capt Larry,
When you performed this fill procedure did you have the truck on jack stands so that the wheels were in the air. I read in our newly available (Thanks to Bat Koce) Service Manual that they want you to disable traction control, with the brakes applied place the transmission in reverse and hold for 5 seconds, Place in drive and hold for 5 seconds, release the brakes, slowly accelerate to 2nd gear and hold for 5 seconds. Apply brakes and place the transmission in Neutral. Raise the engine speed to 2000RPM for 5 seconds. Return the engine to idle and place the transmission in park. Remove the fill plug and allow excess fluid to drain from the fill hole or add fluid as necessary.
Now I did go through a cycle of shifting while stopped. Think I outlined it above and it is discussed in the owner's manual. My concern was the dufus I asked and directed to do that right above me. He was visiting and I needed a reasonably intelligent assistant to run things while I worked under the truck, inches from the DPF. He also had to carefully watch the engine coolant temperature so we got things done within the required temperature parameters.
We did it though I was quite scared he would somehow move the truck or do some other and of screw up. Scared? Yes. He could easily crush me under there. After my initial instructions I came to the conclusion he was a mechanical dufus that would struggle to know how to operate even a simple automatic transmission while keeping a foot on the brake and the emergency brake on, blocked wheels while he watched a temperature readout and shifted that silly dial.
It is a miserable job and you have to have your filler stuff with tubes ready to go as there is not much time and things sure can quickly get hot next to that DPF. Wear long sleeves and maybe long gloves. You just may brush your arm against that DPF and spill oil on your tush. This job convinced me the designers of this check and fill procedure have no relationship with a home mechanic working on a garage floor. That's polite speak for FOOLS.
