    Some days it feels like my truck has a mind and mood of its own. Start it up and start driving everything will be fine then it will start acting funny. It will be driving fine then for a second it will sputter and lose throttle and sometimes puff a black or sometimes white cloud and then return to normal. It will sometimes continue to do so for sometimes maybe 10-20 miles sometimes longer. The longest was about 75-90 I think. When ever it happens it never causes the check engine or anything to come on. Sometimes it happens everyday sometimes it goes 2 3 weeks with out it. The truck is a 2008 freightliner columbia with a detroit series 60 with a dpf. The dpf was baked less then 25k miles ago and installed back with new gasket and sensors. Any help is highly appreciated. Thank you
