You can run a diagnostic through the parking menu. It'll show any codes, if there are any. Or....

You could just go with the philosophy "if it ain't broke, don't fix it."

Kinda like when I hear a strange noise, turning the radio up always fixes it...

Hehe, I did option 2. Today I'm swinging by my mini terminal in Des Moines IA today, unfortunately it's only a drop lot behind a Pilot with an office building for our DMs so I won't be able to have immediate access to a shop, but I will mention it to my DM if it runs fine up until then. At least I'll be on I-80 most of the day so I'll have plenty of opportunities to pull onto the shoulder if worse comes to worse.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

If you notice a degradation of performance, especially when climbing a grade or hill, try to have the truck serviced as soon as possible. I dealt with the same thing not to long ago. Managed to limp back to the D.C. only able to pull 45mph on the I-81 northbound grades with an empty.

The pilot wouldn't happen to be in urbandale off Douglas would it? I'll be out that way this afternoon including a place at the bottom of the hill, if ya see a performance trailer don't be afraid to give a holler

I'm gonna bet you have a DPF code. When was the last time it was in for that system maintenance, if you know? What's the mileage? If it's telling you any amount of Degrade, you need to head by a shop. My two cents...
