What your dashboard gauges and warning lights are really indicating
Your next loading dock is 45 minutes away. With a quick glance at the dashboard, you notice the fuel level is low, and the tire inflation light is on. Should you pull over to fuel up and check out the problem or is it safe to continue driving? While some dashboard lights and instruments indicate emergency situations, others notify the driver of issues that could be concerning if they aren’t serviced soon. To keep trucks in normal operating condition, drivers should understand the function of each panel control so they can detect and call in any complications.

For many years, owners of three-quarter and one-ton pickup trucks enjoyed the fact that there was no smog equipment on their trucks. But in 2008 the EPA required diesel particulate filters on all three-quarter-ton and larger trucks, and required biannual smog tests that included a thorough visual inspection to make sure all the parts were still on the truck. In 2010 the regulations got tighter.
What is DPF
The DPF's job is to clean up particulate matter. The filters trap this microscopic carbon, cleaning up the exhaust to the point where a clean linen handkerchief placed over the exhaust remains completely clean and doesn't even smell of diesel exhaust.
