    I purchased the truck Aug of 2019. the truck came with DPF delete, EGR delete, cold air intake, Cat delete. locking front hubs, rear air bags. The problem I am having is the exhaust brake is sticking. it doesn't matter if I am towing or not. The dealer has no idea, being there is no codes sent.

    BBQ cleaner in hot side of he351 or he300 when cold. Soak it 2-3x & every 25k miles. I get 27-33 MPGs & rarely use the exhaust brake. $25 brake pads cheaper than turbo brakes. & RED brake light goes on with brakes. NOT with turbo brake.

    What do you mean it's "sticking"?

    Get some lube from Pac Brake and lube the shaft and pivots
