Duramax Diesel Exhaust After-Treatment System

Weber State University - Advanced Vehicle Systems Lab. A brief description and summary of the diesel Exhaust after-treatment system of the 2011 - 2012 GM Duramax equipped trucks. This systems allows the engine power to be increased substantially (765 lb*ft) while meeting the EPA 2010 Tier-4 emissions standards for diesels. This truck has a Ultra-low Emission Vehicle (ULEV) certification. Higher compression ratios, higher turbo Boost pressures, and higher combustion temperatures can be used to increase engine power which also results in reduced particulate matter and higher NOx emissions. Most diesel truck engine manufacturers are using this system because with the addition of a Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) injector in the Exhaust system with a Selective Catalyst Reduction (SCR) system, the majority of the NOx emissions can be neutralized. These systems still use a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) which requires regeneration, but at less frequent intervals than with the 2007 EPA emissions standards. This is a great system, however, you must add diesel Exhaust fluid or the engine controller will eventually prevent you from driving. http://www.weber.edu/automotive This video was created and edited by John D.

Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) - How it works.

DEF Frustration!!!
Working on my buddy's 2011 Duramax with a DEF problem. He already installed a tuner voiding the warranty, so the dealer wouldn't cover it. I told him he needs to just delete all that garbage.

2011 Denali HD Duramax 6.6 Turbo DEF Tank Issues!
2011 Denali HD DRW 4x4 with the 6.6 turbo Duramax. The DEF Tank is full, yet the DIC says that I need to refill the tank and that I am limited to 55mph. After a while it will go down to 5mph. I went to the GMC Dealership and they have not heard of "any issues with the DEF Tank" Ive tried letting the truck run for 1 hour...and that still did not fix the issue. I also drove it 30 miles down the freeway. The truck has 4,000 miles on it. Needless to say, I am NOT a happy owner and maybe I should get a King Ranch or Dodge DRW. I am not the only duramax owner having the issue. Brand new truck and I dont know even know how many miles I have left until it puts me at a crawl. Thanks GM! Quality Product indeed
