Not sure if this is an issue to bring to my company's maintenance department. And when it comes to the mechanical issues I'm pretty much clueless.

My truck has been requiring regens every other day. The indicator comes on while I'm driving, telling me I need to do a regen. I've gone weeks without having to do a parked regen with this truck. Not sure what the issue is-if any. Besides, I thought a truck would do an automatic regen while running. Any thoughts?

I would have the shop check it out. I've driven probably a couple dozen different Freightliners, Volvos, Internationals, Kenworths, and now Mack's. I have never had to do a manual or parked regen.

Gotta be something wrong with the truck, what you are experiencing is not normal.

Someone just recently told me that forced regens are very hard on the equipment. Maybe it came from our shop mechanics. If that is true perhaps someone here knows why a forced regen is tough on the equipment. Is it the heat of the regen?

I’d get to the shop sooner rather than later. Could be a few different things but likely the dpf filter is getting too clogged up and they’ll need to clean or replace it in the shop. If you wait too long eventually it’ll get so clogged that a parked regen won’t cut it and the truck will de-rate on you leaving you stranded

DEFinitely get it checked out soon. Something is wrong. If all they do is a forced regen, I'd ask some questions of the shop manager. You've got something wrong.

Ok, Old School, I see what you did there.
