    Hello,I got a 2013 Volvo with a D13 engine.Not too long ago,maybee 2 months I got injector job done with new cups and a upgraded venture pipe on my truck.Like a month ago I got a check engine with a spn 5394 fmi17 code and also asking for a parked regen.after done soot level went down but still with check engine light on and code on.I took it into the shop I got the def pump changed.went for 1 trip same code came back but this time did not asked for regen.took it back to the shop,and got the dosing valve replacet.after that next week same code,when I shut off the truck the code disappeared ,again back to the shop and found the 2 Nox sensors,they replaced them and also check the ecm software updated.last week the code came back they replaced the differential pressure sensors and I think the egr sensor(that is different than the diff.pressure sensor?). since I own this truck like 7-8 months noticed like the barely use any Def its like a 1/4 tank for like 1800-2000 mile is that normal? even now the truck does not feel ok to me kind of rough running and like 6-6.5 fule milege.if anyone has some idea I would appreciate it.

    NOx codes If you idle a lot will trigger those codes. Most likely went into a NOx evaluation and after the regen it was OK. Extended idling will emit a lot of unburnt hydrocarbons, If you have a a lot of soot or getting close to a dpf cleaning then it will affect it. What's your mileage?

    I have been experiencing the same thing with my 2011 d13, I replaced the box sensors, the egr valve, egr cooler, the turbo, baked the dpf, Def pump ,and warmer, I do idle some, not excessive. It have been fighting these codes the last year and volvo can't solve it, I like the truck alot, but pretty much at wits end with this. I hope you can figure why it's throwing codes.

    Base on my own experience that kind of problem need a extensive road test (1 hour) with the lap top on the knees to monitor many after treatment components and figure out what wrong.
    5394 is telling you DEF system is not fonctionning propelly but the EGR system is often the cause.
    5246 is the derate code because the ECM derate the engine because the DEF system is not fonctionning like expected since a certain amount of time.
    In that situation there is many possibility and it's not always the same one.
    First you need to make sure the EGR system is fonctionning propelly. . . .to do it during the road test i'm looking closely at the EGR temp (very often the answer is there) the DEF system need the EGR system to work ,the DEF system alone cannot take care of the all NOX (PPM) generate by the engine.
    Note: The EGR valve position in the lap top is only a calculation because there is no position sensor on it then the lap top can show you a 95 % open position and on the engine the egr valve can be stuck close, it's the reason why i'm looking also at the EGR temp to figure out if it make sense.
    Up to now the cause found for a problem like yours are:
    EGR Cooler(heat tranfer problem)
    EGR valve (stuck close)
    EGR diff pressure sensor and delta P tube(Plugged up)
    Nox sensors (Inlet / Outlet)(Incorrect given information)
    DEF dosing valve (incorrect flow)
    DOC (on top of DPF)(Melt inside or plugged up)
    SCR (Poisonning)

    Hope this can help.

    Base on my previous e-mail you need a good diagnostic first to make you are replacing the failed parts(only).
    Because for the codes that you have it's not always the same cause. . . . . .i suggest to you to look closely at your egr system first even though the code(5394,4094) direct you on the DEF system.
