15 are the worst, try having the power train updated with the latest flash. I'll bet it will help...

My 16 is the same way. I almost slid off the road with it on accident the other night when I smashed on it.

One thing I am noticing on this thing is regens I think. It has only told me one time to drive to clean exhaust once. However it has an elevated idle once or twice a week. Granted I let it idle some and drive around town and short trips a lot.

No complaints, just something I’m noticing

The regens can also make the motor sound weird...
My thoughts are the metal in the exhaust somewhere is getting hot/cold and resonating throughout
On one of the other L5p in the fleet it’s noticeable because you can also hear the def injector ticking open/closed
I’ve learned to just ignore all the weird noises it makes and just drive it as hard as I can because if something is going to fail I want it to be covered still lol
My luck though I’ll ease up after warranty and then she will let go

Iíve had a few injectors go out, all replaced under warranty... just an FYI, I replaced a few injector harness plugs because they were arcing and not making contact. Inside the plug looked the same as the LLY plugs when they go bad, black powdery residue.
