Problem Description and Possible Solution

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.

Bad smoke out tale pipe. DPF filter no good. White smoke out tail pipe. EGR Cooler leaking.
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.
