Thats a 07.5 with the new emissions. Its just regening. Nothing to worry about. You can also tell by the drastic drop in mpgs

Want to get rid of that problem? Efi live tuning delete the dpf on it. More power and better mpg's. if interested look at the dieselx.com website.

Yeah that voids the warranty, which for me so far has been handy. Sure I wish I didn't have that crap but then I am reminded that mine has been in the shop for over a week now for warranty work, and there would be no way I could foot that bill right now. I only get about 9 mpgs in regen and 10ish on the highway. And the same here, mine idles normally in regen.

Ya would but your three year 36000 mile warranty would be up, all you would be out is the 5 year 100,000 something you would have to think about

Well you are just about out of your warranty anyway. Do efi live and straight exhaust. It will stop the regen stuff and be a way better truck. Your tranny lines were replaced with stock replacements. They are going to probably shoot the shit again anyway and I bet they don't cover it so I suggest when they do go with the aftermarket ones. You can find they from some of the supporters on here.
