    I use a licensed Standard Edition of Detroit Diesel Diagnostic Link (DDDL8). Costs $500 per year for a subscription.

    I use the otr reset tool for my Cummins. I do a forced regen once a week. I've never had to clear codes with it.
    As for diagnostics it won't tell you what the code is or means, just clears them.
    They have good videos on YouTube .

    You may be able to find some free dealer workshop manuals on the web or at least pieces of it here and there. There are sites that sell them in PDF format for around $30. Those are much more complete, but if you buy the dealer diagnostic tool, I believe it will come with the full-blown workshop manual, plus other diagnostics that won’t be in PDF manuals.

    Why are you doing a force regen if its not requiring its not the best idea to do it. You bery well might be doing more damage then good

    Where and how would I get ahold of this insite program?
    I do the forced regens for preventive maintenance. Trying to keep the filters clean. My first dpf engine and learning.
    If I could get insite and check flow rates I could make a more educated decision.

    You're being vague. If you have something to teach me I'll listen.
