Funny you say that. We had some burnt grass at our shop. That is most likely exactly why there isn't a manual button. 1,000+ degrees can do some damage.

The fix against that is to program it so the button only works when the vehicle is at or above a pre determined speed Ie when on a highway for 20min.

We had a 6.5 diesel intake manifold off of a 2002 school bus. The inside of this intake was spotless. Our tech actually walked inside the office to show us the differences between a 6.4 power stroke we have apart and a 6.5 old non egr and dpf Chevy.

Take an intake off of a duramax, Isuzu, power stroke, cumins, etc and it'll be coked up with carbon. We are just so used to seeing this now that it has become normal and the clean 6.5's, 7.3's are becoming more rare.

I would be ignorant to say that these systems are not really saving our atmosphere but to put it simply... Pay $3k to replace your Dpf, 3k for a sooted up turbo that can no longer be cleaned, tows to your local shop, increased wear on engine, must use synthetic oil that is made to soak up the carbon and other contaminants, and a DECREASE in fuel mileage ( 2013 duramax averages 12-15mpg, my old 2004 no egr and dpf averaged 19.5 at 170k miles).

Also- remote starting your Ecodiesel and allowing it to idle for 20 min is a BAD idea. I will show you some pictures of what happens when these diesels idle. Internationals actually turn the engine off if the engine is idling more then 11 minutes.

Can you tell this bothers me? This keeps my shop busy but I still don't agree with it.

This is not exactly comforting for someone who is anxiously planning to pick up one of these beasts. Unfortunately read a lot of this carbon build up issue with the BMW 335 diesel.

Re: Tuning your EcoDiesel

Hello Guys,

I trade my ram 2500 because Ram would not fix it. They replaced all the O2 sensors 4 times,2 ecu's,several reflashes it was in the shop 38 days in the first year. I have a tuner friendly dealer but with all the problems I was afraid to change any thing for fear of them voiding my warranty.
I know I could have fixed the issues,by doing deletes.

My dealer helped me to get out of the truck with only 13k on the OD and get into my Eco.

I want to do the deletes on my ECO,but use simms to fool the computer into no regens. I do not need 400hp!!

I do not want to leave any traces in the ecu and give them an excuse to void my warranty.

I want to get rid of the EPA BS and give longevity to my engine.

What stupid engineer decided to put unburnt fuel and soot back into a close tolerance motor was a good idea!!!!!

All of my vehicles are Diesel,14 Jeep Eco,13 VW Jetta TDI,1984 Mercedes 190D, 2000 Hustler 72" Zero turn,1986 IH 4x4 254 tractor. We like the smell of Diesel !

Regards
Don

I would go the same route if they made something to trick the sensors. What I would do is go with a DPF ONLY delete tune and then reinstall the dpf filter and have the car tuned back to factory before going in for repairs. You don't have to go with the performance tune. I guess I just assume I'm never going to be bringing it back in for warranty repairs.. wishful thinking.



I plan on keeping this truck for a while

My recommendation would be yearly a "egr cleaning service". We use this system at my shop all the time. This is one of those services that actually WORK. We test, remove parts, inspect numerous times before trying anything on a customers vehicle. The carbon literally pours out of the engine. Its the one service you can actually feel a difference with right after. The system we use is made by BG Products.

They are called sims (resistors) that plug, into the plugs for the sensors that go on the DPF and Cat.

I am trying to find the sims for our Eco.

Don - let me know if you find these. I have been searching but haven't seen any.

Re: Tuning your EcoDiesel

I have not gotten under my Eco yet to take measurements, If I new the value of the resistor needed I would make my own.

With my back round and I am able to trouble shoot to component level I think I can figure out what they should be and make them, but I am very busy with my work load since I am self employed.

That is why I was hoping someone else has done the leg work, and I could just buy them for under $100.00.

I will post back to this thread with any info I may find.

This is good stuff guys! I'm seriously considering shimming my sensors and welding a straight pipe through my gutted DPF.

Can the EGR be shimmed and vented?
