Re: DPF REGENERATION PROBLEMS on C15 ACERT

fanam77 I don't suppose You might have brought this thread to the attention of any of the "TRUCK" engine guys since apparently "John Q Cash Paying Customer" doesn't appear to be having a lot of luck with it from "Our" seats out here in left field. Just Say'in, Dan Divine P.S. Yep I just bought one o these "SDP" engines and 7500 miles in I'm waiting 24-120 hrs, yea 1-5 days here just to get into one of three shops in Amarillo Tx, just to plug it into CAT ET, and force/overide/manually do a Regen. FUN TIMES

Dear Bmore4100,

We assume that your engine is a truck engine.

Since this forum is a Marine focused community, we would recommend to you to direct your request to the email below that is going directly to a Customer Service Representative for the On-highway products:

 

Truck_Engine_Call_Ctr@cat.com

 

Thank you very much

Best regards

I have replaced both turbos last week after all the money i have spend with DPF problems.. For turbos i paid 6800$ and 600 miles later truck broke down with DPF problem again.. I have spend 31.000.00$ and all the down time im down over 50.000.00$.. I have called Fabick in St.Louis mo bcs they worked on it for the last month, and they have said nothing they can do.. Truck is now in ohio Kenworth dealer, i have no idea what to do from here.. this is the worst investment in my life i have made.. Cat should be ashamed doing nothing about this things.. I have smal fleet of my own trucks and im about to buy more trucks,but cat never again.. I will have my lawyers take situation from here.. So good luck to anyone with this engines.. I will make sure nobody i know, not to buy this crap so called engine..

Re: DPF REGENERATION PROBLEMS on C15 ACCERT

So does anyone know how to eliminate the filter or get around it within reason or is it just a yellow boat anchor. I can't keep up this shop hopping. This thing was in the shop twice last week. Even the Cat dealers are fed up with it. System needs to be eliminated. '09 C-15' . Worst investment I have ever made.

Re: DPF REGENERATION PROBLEMS on C15 ACCERT

I have the exact same truck as you. The crankcase psi is generally a blow by filter needing replaced.  They did have a recall on the DPF sensor which throwed a lot of errors. Once the sensor was replaced most of my errors went away. The only other problem I have had is replacing the ARD head. They put the new style on it and it went out in 40K (Warrenty replaced) I finally have to get the DPF filter cleaned (I'm pretty sure that is the problem, will know more tuesday) Particulate trap inpeding regen... I have over 420K so far.

Have you any further regen problems with your truck? would you be willing to share more details about your problems privately?
