My 2011 deleted Duramax just will not die, knock on wood.

Still runs like a champ. Anyone else have this kind of longevity with a vehicle?

My 04 f150 went 340000 miles before I got a new one. Best truck I've ever owned.

does "deleted" on the duramax post refer to deleting the emissions stuff? my buddy and i both bought 2015s, he had trouble, got rid of his, i had a fuel pressure regulator switch that went out at 34k miles and cost me $1K to deal with (had to get truck shipped back to me after warranty work). Mine Been fine since. i wonder if any relation to emissions?

Yes, I had emissions issues while under warranty and after it went out of warranty. DEF tank was disconnected at around 120,000 and have only issues i have had is to replace a few glow plugs.

Highest I’ve gone was 280,000 on a 2004 single cab Dodge with Cummins, 6 speed manual with a splitter. Bought it with 30,000 miles and put 250,000 on it in 2 years running hot shot. I was young and made do with the single cab and bench seat. There were times I’d drive down the road with cruise on, back on driver door and feet up in the seat,

I had 280k on my 7.3 power stroke. Sold it to a buddy who ran it to 330k and then sold it off. This was in 2010. I saw the truck on the road about 2 years back and it looked like the day I sold it.

My former father in law had 480k on his 2001 7.3 in 2014 and as of 9 months ago he was still driving it.

Had an ‘03 KR F250 w/6.0. I put 188k on it in 4 years. Then gave it to my son when he started driving in high school. Traded it in when he finished jr year in college. It had 288k, original engine and tranny.

Most I got was 147k on a ‘14 F350. Then the emissions problems started, so it got traded.

The EPA is coming after deleted diesels and the shops doing it. I wouldn't want to be caught with one.
https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/sep/09/auto-car-emissions-defeat-devices-delete-kits

The EPA estimates that more than 500,000 diesel pickup trucks have been “deleted” since 2009. The EPA claims that these illegally modified vehicles produced hundreds of thousands of tons of excess nitrogen oxide – the equivalent of adding 9m more trucks to the road. Public health advocates say diesel emissions contribute to increases in fine particulate matter and other airborne pollutants that have been linked to higher rates of cancer, heart attacks, strokes and neurodegenerative diseases.

In recent years, the EPA has escalated a crackdown, resolving more than 60 cases against companies that make or distribute defeat devices since 2017. The penalties can be stiff: in February, the agency announced that Freedom Performance would pay more than $7m for committing thousands of violations.

Fined one mechanic $5000 just for working on them.

This is why I repaired mine last one instead of deleting. Plus you can trade it in, without a deduction for the delete.

The emission system is gov mandated and is the Achilles heal of every diesel. Currently the longest driven before deleting is 147k? Anyone go further with zero DEF issues?

So 500,000 deleted diesels is the same as adding 9 million trucks? I am highly skeptical of that number.

What is the fine for illegally modifying your truck? Or cutting off the catalytic convertor on a gas truck? I really don't see how a lot of them even pass inspection unmuffled and pouring out black smoke.

My highest was a 1994 Chevy with 265,000 miles sold it running well.

I currently have a 2015 Ram 1500 Diesel it has 99,000 miles on it, all emissions stuff is still on it and working..... but it does have a check engine light on right now. It is a bs hickup that set it, but ill take it in to be looked at flashed and cleared by the dealer.

That is because diesels only require a visual inspection. Are the emissions devices there? Yes. It passes, they dont have to run your truck or do any kind of computer verification to see if its been deleted electronically. A "delete" can be done with tuning alone leaving all "emission devices" in place, remove the DPF filter, gut it and reinstall vs a straight pipe and no trooper or vehicle inspector will be the wiser.

You coal roll and they'll know, otherwise you're right.

I'm low mileage on a 2015 duramax and thinking I should trade it before I have issues

The new diesels (anything with a VGT) are dumping NOX when they are working correctly. Get rid of the EGR and they go down.

It will not take much good research to substantiate my statement.

For the record older diesels that were turbocharged without a CAC (intercooler) dumped NOX also.

Don’t believe the lies the EPA shoves down your throat.
