A friend of mine told me a similar story, his grandpa had a '69 Roadrunner with a 383 4 barrel and a 4 speed. he said him and grandpa would have to go out on the highway to 'blow the carbon out of it' every week or so of grandma driving it! His comment was he didn't know what that meant back then, but it sure was a fun ride!I remember a friend had a 1969 Camaro Z-28 with the 302. That thing would tend to overheat in stop,and go traffic. It was stone stock and the guy told me that the car needed to RUN to cool down properly.
Perhaps you could elaborate on your problem. From the little that you have posted, it appears that you are saying that your DPF is full after only 6 miles, or so, and that makes no sense at all. Perhaps a visit to your RAM service department is in order to see if there is a problem.I have a 2015 Eco Diesel and the exhaust filter plugs up every 2-3 days. I drive one mile to work and home and rarely drive over 40 mph. Is this normal. I have to take my truck for a drive in the country just to clean out the exhaust filter. What can I do?
Yep, same here. In 2K miles, mostly short city drives, I have never seen the EVIC message and my DEF consumption is normal.Interesting thread... I seem to have the exact opposite "issue". I drive an embarrassingly large percentage of city roads, and often very short drives. (Still looking forward to those 460 Km highway drives to the summer cabin). I haven't bothered to do the math, but I'd say my DEF consumption rate is normal, I've haven't noticed any odd smells, and no EVIC messages about regens.
Of course having said all that, I'm now bracing for the onslaught of flying codes!
