    Grid heater

    I have a 2015 6.7 Tradesman. Completely stock and never had any problems. I use it to tow my fifth wheel as well. A minor issue I had happened during the Covid lockdown. I didn't drive it for 2 months. CEL went on. So I drove it hard in the freeway, drove on many of the hills. After the...

    2015 2500 diesel exhaust injector problem

    Mine is 2015 also with 60K miles in it. If it cost $2700 to fix, I'd delete it. At this point, I have no plans of selling it anymore. I just can't imagine paying $2700 for an injector pump.

    DPF Regen

    On my 2015 CTD long bed, I seldom used it for my 5th RV towing. My office is only 5 miles away so it never really gets "hot". Like I said, I've only seen it once when my truck was new. At the time my obd reader would show the countdown from 100% to 0-5%. There was a software recall in 2015...

    2015 2500 coolant flush

    Just finished a coolant flush on my 2150 2500. It wasn't that bad. The radiator drain was on the left side. Use a 10mm allen wrench. For filling, I disconnected the hose on the top radiator on the right side. This hose is from the coolant reservoir. Used distilled water and prestone flush...

    DPF delete but staying in stock settings

    To mtnrider, Did I get you right? If it wasn't for a couple of issues, you would not have deleted your truck? If so since I have no issues, leave it alone.

    DPF delete but staying in stock settings

    I wasn't very clear with my post. With a full delete, can I keep the truck at stock settings? Will the black smoke be very obvious enough to upset other drivers?
