Software enhancements are available to remedy inconsistency and confusion about the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) cleaning cycle - “Regeneration” mode. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) will need to be reprogrammed to add several enhancements, including a more reasonable driving experience during the cleaning cycle and instrument cluster notifications of the cleaning status.
If the engine cranks but will not start, this may be caused by damaged wiring to the high pressure fuel pump. Wiring to the pump can be chafed, which causes the pump to stop working. The chafed wires will need to be accessed and repaired.

2010 Ford F-250 Super Duty Reviews
Purchased with 24K on it. currently has 56K. 6.4L, Auto,4x4, FX4 Package, loaded with options. Very comfortable ride considering the hauling capacity. RH front Caliper failed/stuck at 54K, replace front caliper and pads (about 50% left on old pad, wasted). Removed DPF & Tuned, very little smoke, great sound, great performance, 18 mpg (best upgrade, the DPF was a hassle and choked engine, not to mention the engine will last much longer now.). Taking in for both front axle dust shield warranty replacements (poor design, good redesign, 60K mfg warranty covered the issue). All-in-All, this is a great truck. The interior is very comfortable and it has very good road manners for a large truck. With the DPF removed & tuned, it runs great and has outstanding performance and mileage for a large truck, worth every penny (bought used from dealer for $33K with 24K miles, saved $20K from new and have a great truck).
My 2010 F250 Super Duty has died 3 times with low fuel and wouldn't start after fuel was added. Had to get towed to dealership 3 times. First time, Dealership primed it and truck turned over. 2nd time, truck spent over a month in repair dept. had 4 clogged fuel injectors, and faulty fuel pump housing. Ford repaired. 3 time, mileage meter read 27 miles til empty when it died on the side of the highway. Now it's in the shop and I'm very curious to find out what the deal is. Not too happy with this truck, or the dealership we bought it from. I understand that it's not wise to let your fuel run low, but why do vehicles have the feature that tells you how many miles you have left if it can't be relied upon? Doesn't make sense to me.
weak....very week, rode in my buddys duramax...wow i know what im buyin
