Well boys I triggered a regen after 116 miles after leaving the dealership Friday. When I come to a complete stop the cab fills full of smoke.

I happen to be on my way home work when it triggered and I happen to live 2 miles from the dealership. I pulled right into the service center and asked the manager to take a ride. He is baffled I was in regen after 116 miles and when the smoke filled the cab I could hear his guts sink. We were able to have an actual nice conversation with out name calling. I explained they need to start making phone call. I email Ram care again to put my truck in for a buy back.

Sorry to hear this after all the part they changed and testing.. Being I personally have had a few conversations with this manager I'm glad he was cordial with you, but then the smoke filling the cab on his ride along I'm sure helped him to understand you are not full of BS. In the next day or two I should have my 6 month UOA report back from Cummins, I'm sure he will not like it when I shove it under his nose to prove oil growth in just 2391 miles that one of his SW said did not amount to that much over full :eek:..

Ugh. I just dropped my 22 off this morning for the 3rd time for frequent regens - sometimes it does not even make it 100 miles between regens, even with almost all highway driving. The only time that it does not do an auto regen is when I am towing.

I have done 2 UOAs, which both showed >10% fuel in the oil. The dealership service department has a STAR case open and I just don't have much confidence that they will fix this, especially after following this thread for so long.

Yeah it's sad. 14 weeks nothing fixed... for me just the same crap!. FYI my star case number was 102462680 give that to your dealer and maybe they can learn a bit.

I am on my 8th regen and triggered check engine light this morning. This is the oil level when I picked it up from the deal and current oil level.20240507_082658.jpg20240508_055508.jpg20240423_053948.jpg20240507_054829.jpg

Keep waiting for a conclusion to this, but its hard to believe this is still lingering. Maybe its time for this truck to accidentally stall on a set of train tracks?

Its about time they got you a rental.... On my drive to town today my DPF gauge went up, it was almost like clock work at round 13 hours, like its programed into the ecu :confused:... I took a look and it was 13.4 hours since it did the 24 hour regen o_O so in a few more miles it will do an auto regen, I was hoping after it had two 4 hour none stop drives it would not do another regen before it reached the 24 hr mandated regen...

It looks like they are starting to throw parts at mine. I spoke with the SA today and asked for an update. He told me that the tech is going to replace the DPF today and send me on my way. I don't have much confidence that replacing the DPF will fix the problem.

Yeah, like I said, I don't have much faith that they are doing anything to actually troubleshoot/fix the problem. They just don't make techs like they used to.

They definitely do not. There are some sharp people but manufacturer makes the rules and henders any superstars to rise. The dealerships don't want to foot the bill especially if manufacturer says we didn't authorize that.....the system is broke.

See it through! We are pulling for you!
4th trip they had a Ram super tech come look at my truck and kick the tires. Nothing was done besides a oil change and new air filter. Ram Care is not to pleased as I drove 22miles regen over and over.

It's in for the 5th time and hoping it's the last go for replacement truck. I had 13 regen cycles in 1000 miles.. check engine light is back on, fuel in oil again and vibration is worse.

Ram care told me to go to another dealership and they seem to be a lot better and more knowledgeable. I first took it there to confirm vibration and scheduled a appointment. Dropped it off on Monday so now the wait game, the manager at the new dealership did not really want to work on my truck lol.20240610_081410.jpg20240603_162543.jpg

MF’er man. Not only should they give you a new truck, they should throw in a case of beer just for mental anguish! Geez.

I was morbidly obese and the doctors had me on Hydrochlorothiazide, 3 inhalers, a rescue inhaler, and an epi-pen for good measure.... uh huh!
I looked like I was about to drop triplets, and couldn't do much. just like you were. I don't remember what my EF ratio was, and don't really care. i was so miserable, I was waiting to die.

Then I went with my wife to her doctor and was telling her about my woes.
She (the doctor) referred me to a Chinese herbalist. She, the herbalist, took me off the meds and put me on one.... Fu Fang Dan Shen Wan.

13 dollars a month, no script, blood pressure regularly is 110/60, I lost 80+ pounds, and was able to be more active. Ain't it ironic that the Chinese have been practicing medicine about 2,000 years longer than this country? ;)
Yep! How about that?!

There's a reason Dr's call it their "practice"..... ;)

I love RAM and I love my personal RAM. This though is just stupid. Its detrimental to Stellantis and the RAM brand. They are costing themselves SALES by acting like this. Why on earth can't they see it would be much better to just eat this, and trade you into a new ride? It would pay off for them and keep all the tempers and drama at bay.

There are a lot of 2022 trucks having regeneration issues. I've made a post on multiple forums and Facebook book. I would imagine if they start a buy back it would start a land slide. Crap for the customer 100% and wrong but it's probably what's going on.
