Own an Insight CS2/CTS2 or Evolution CS2/CTS2 and have a 2011-2015 Chevy/GMC LML Duramax? Make sure you update for our manual and mobile regen options, now available in the diagnostics menu for these trucks. Manual and mobile regen options have been added to give you the ability to clear the DPF through a service regen, or through commanding a mobile regen cycle. This is a great feature for those on a job site and idling frequently. Customers are not always available to run the truck on the road to clear the DPF. Use this feature to save time and maximize performance. Update your product now using our Fusion software. Don’t own an Edge product yet?
Why Do We Need a DPF?
Diesel engines (well, all engines really) emit pollutants into the air we breathe. And by “pollutants” we mean chemicals and compounds that wouldn’t otherwise end up in our air in the quantity and concentration we create with our vehicles. To reduce the amount of these pollutants in our air, ’07-and-newer diesel engines have been fitted with a filter in the exhaust pipe to capture soot particles. This matrix of materials (a composite of cordierite, silicon carbide, or metal fibers), called a diesel particulate filter (DPF), traps the particulates (soot) flowing out the exhaust pipe.
