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.

frequent dpf/exhaust cleaning cycle with severe loss of power
It says cleaning exhaust filter and smokes bad looses power bout every 20 miles I have to shut down engine let it set bout ten mins and start it back up and go again
Serious oil leak and extended regen process each 200 miles or so.
Engine will not accelerate. My truck has not regenerated the dpf in a long time. This just happened and I haven't took it to a mechanic yet.
