Manual Regen

Have searched this site for discussion on manual regeneration w/o inhibition, have found nothing. Expert members please direct me to proper section if this is a misplaced thread.
Am looking for how, when this operation is used, is it effective, etc. Chime in, esp. all you diesel owners. Thanks All.

If you don't do enough high speed driving or do too much idling the DPF gets clogged up. Sprinter operators had this problem. Even though most of my driving was highway and I was careful not to idle very much, mine still clogged up and the dealer had to perform a computer controlled regen.
With the Transit manual regen you just do it yourself when neccesary, probably a great option.

That is for a 6.4 L PSD. I'm not sure if it is relevant.

This is how I understand the regent process, the owner's manual is not a lot of help:


Basic Diesel engine will on into regent process when required and is controlled by the engine computer. If it starts before you park you should leave the van running and let the regent finish. You have no control over the process other than to see on the drop down menu that your close to needing one.


Option 98D (Manual Regent Initiation) will allow you to start a regent when you want one. Let's say you check the display and fine you close to needing a regent and your on the highway with 20 miles to go before you get off. You can start the regent while at highway speed and save some fuel.


Option 98E (Manual Regent Initiation with Active Regent Inhibitor) allows you to both start and delay a regent as needed. Let's say you are close to home and notice that you need to do a regent, but know that the next day you will be going on a highway trip, you can delay the start and do it when you hit the road the next day.

In my inventory searches I've found pretty much zero of the vans come w/ Option 98D or 98E unfortunately. The Ford dealer service depts I've spoken with didn't really have any idea how much it would cost for them to add it. But based on what I'm reading in places like this: http://www.vehicleservicepros.com/ar...-on-scan-tools ... it's pretty easy to manually initiate a DPF regen even w/o Option 98D. But you don't have the Active Regen Inhibition ability...

Our morning driver mentioned to me today that she saw the message that it was cleaning the DPF. This is the first time that she saw that message and she has put on at least 10,000 on this van so far and probably another 175,000 on the old 6.0L. Yes, she is a FEMALE, but she told me that she first noticed it when the engine was running differently. What I mean is that she isn't a stupid blonde that doesn't notice things happening with the van. She is a pretty astute driver. Sure it has probably done a few regens when she didn't notice, but my guess is that it happens rarely for our van.

Remember that this girl is 98% highway, but 35% idle time last I checked.

Well that's just a note for anyone gathering information.

When I ordered my van, I selected Option 98E, with the assumption that it would operate as Epps described above. It does not. Regen cannot be driver initiated while driving. It can only be initiated while in park. If regen is user initiated while in park, then the gear selector is moved out of park, the regen is cancelled. It's seems totally ridiculous to me. From my experience so far, there is no way to manually initiate a regen while driving. It's seems totally dumb and counter intuitive, just like the remote start shutting off when you open the door, to get in and drive the dang thing.

RIP Lemmy. Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
