My EcoDiesel's First MIL codes: P200A and P2D2D

Yesterday my truck's MIL light came on with the P200A and P2D2D. The mechanic read them and cleared them. About 20 miles later the light came on again. I assume with the same codes. I'm getting a Blue driver code reader on Thursday so I can get some visibility. Some searching on the web shows they have to do with the Intake Runner and some others have experience intake swirl valves them very sooted up. It drives just fine. So tomorrow I have to drive 500+ miles home towing my trailer. I'm hoping it doesn't get worse.

2014 Ecodiesel, 128K miles, stock everything except fro the K&N air filter. I had the EGR cooler replaced on recall last year at about the same time I did the V08 SW flash recall for the emissions scandal (I really disliked it's hit to turbo lag and mileage).

Anybody have any advice on these codes or it's likelihood for a roadside breakdown in the next ~500 miles?

My truck just had these codes today too so I think it's the same issue. I drove 400 miles and I think it was maybe a little sluggish at low rpms. No other noticable differences though. What did you wind up doing?

I drove home hundreds of mile towing my trailer. I added DieselKleen to the tank hoping it might clean up deposits but I don't think it helped. I have bought a code reader and cleared the codes a number of times but they always come back. The truck is getting more sluggish and the mileage has dropped. I plan to bring it into the dealer next week.

Right, I'm thinking I'll need to get the intake manifold cleaned out, and then delete the EGR. I don't know what I'm looking at, but I'm crossing my fingers at under $2,000

I just called the dealership, spoke a service and they said usually when this happens he got to replace the whole intake manifold and the fuel lines. They quoted me $1,100 just for the intake manifold plus 5 hours of labor, plus fuel lines. I'm wondering about just spraying seafoam into the intake and seeing what happens... Can't find if anybody here has done that yet

Here is a report on my truck and these codes. The dealer said I need a new intake due to excessive soot build-up (not much of a surprise). I'm getting a new intake and a new EGR valve. Good news is the extended warranty from the EGR cooler recall I had done last year covers the cost. When I asked how I could prevent this from happening again, he said he doesn't really know, and that he thinks the extended warranty on these additional parts was because they knew there could be failures of these parts later on. I asked if it was the V08 recall which reprogrammed the computer to satisfy the EPA regulations that gave me the additional warranty (I couldn't remember), or if it was the EGR cooler recall. He thought it was the later. I have had both of these recalls incorporated on my truck.

So, the bottomline is, if you get the P200A code then it is likely due to excessive soot buildup in the intake. It's not a catastrophic code indicating imminent failure. I went over 500 miles before I got it taken care of. However, I have no idea how to prevent it except possibly an EGR system delete. I have not wanted to do that because I know what living in Los Angeles is like with crappy air to breathe. Maybe periodic cleaning by spraying EGR cleaning spray into the intake would work?
