Expensive repair on the DPF

Post by John S. »

Well, I got a check engine light and they said it was the particulate filter. I had read the code and I knew it was the code. the thing is they could not manually refresh it after trying a number of times so I need a new one. There is only one on the east coast and it is 56oo dollars. I hate these emission things. I also need to replace the track bar as they said it and the ball joint were warn out. I also have a oleak in the oil pan and it is a lot of labor to drop and reseal. I guess it is the first big repair on my coach since I got it.

John, I take it your Born Free is diesel powered. But I don’t know what a Claude is?

Also you said that you need to replace your tractor bar - did you mean track bar? Not sure what a tractor bar is.
