    So my dpf forced my car into limp mode, I took it to the garage to get a oil change and then tried to do a regen on the motorway to no avail!

    I have a 2014 Astra 1.6CDTi that is continuing to say DPF full. I've carefully cleaned the DPF off the vehicle and all seems good. I also replaced the pressure pipes & sensor and also the oil & filter. No errors shown using Carscanner Pro and everything looks okay other than soot level showing...

    Hi All Wife's Meriva A again ... She was carrying out a motorway drive the other day, when the car hit limp mode. There's a loud 'wooshing' sound coming from underneath. On closer inspection, it look as though the exhaust is blowing significantly from the joint between the DPF and the flexi...

    Hi chaps, Are there any specific conditions that needed to be met for the DPF to regen? e.g certain speed,rev range,driving time etc. There is a similar system on my wife's E87 BMW 118d(N47D20) where you have to drive a certain distance above a certain speed and I want to understand if any of...

    I've tried a couple of different tools, one simply let me read & clear codes, the second provided me more engine information but could not access any of the DPF data. I just had a DPF and EGR sensor replaced, so I would like to have more visibility of when a Regen is needed or being done. There...

    Hi guys, Not sure if allowed (mods remove if not) but I did a video covering info on the DPF, regen cycle and basic guide to adding an LED indicator to show when your DPF is doing an active/forced regen by the ECU by adding an LED to the rear heated screen. Hopefully it's useful to some...

    Hi All, Once the new MOT rules come into play, there is an additional check to see if the DPF has been removed. Well mine has, some time ago now. So when it comes to my next MOT, in theory, if the tester is doing his job - should FAIL the car.. I have two options; 1 - Look at fitting and...

    I wonder if anyone can throw any light on the following chain of events. Guided only by routine OPCOM results (no warning lights displayed on the instrument panel) I have on several occasions found the DPF on my Zafira 1.9 CDTI getting close to saturation. A quick blast in fourth gear (3000rpm)...
