Dreaded DPF warning

Recommended Posts

Ok cheers, I think the cause of it, was my throttle control valve connector was loose after having my swirl flaps removed.

 

teah the 480a is the only fault returning now

480a isn't serious though, you just have to go finish the regen..

Well im hoping that this is the end of my DPF troubles for now.

 

After everyone's advice (which i'm grateful for), I drove to work this morning, clearing 480A fault just before i hit the motorway and run car at 65mph at 2000 revs (5th gear).

 

Couldn't tell that anything was happening except that the 480A fault did not re-appear in the 40 minute drive.

 

When i got to work, i wasn't very hopeful as it didn't feel like anything was happening, but though i'd check anyway using Carly.

 

Soot levels had dropped from approx 50g (initially approx 70g) to 3.67g and 'Regeneration Requested' has gone from 8.00 to 0.00

 

So just wanted to update and say THANK YOU to everyone who give me advice on getting it to clear.

 

I will be keeping an eye on this now. ha-ha

Looks like the throttle was stopping it from regenerating and everything else is fine.

I'd be interested to know what is the regenerating interval (ie mileage). 

Keep an eye on it, hopefully it will just work from now on and continue to keep itself clean.

Yes, I'l be keeping a an eye on it.

 

I travel 80 miles per day for work, so in theory should be plenty of time to regen.

 

I have now got the DIS and INPA software, but struggling to get the DIS to work

The fact the car does those miles including motorway should keep that DPF in top condition m8, glad it regenned at last :)

Yeah, out of the 40 miles each way to work, only 4 miles is non Motorway/dual carriageway.

 

I think keeping the revs at 2000 instead of 3000 rpm did the trick.

 

Coolant temp on hidden menu, didn't drop below 87 degrees

 

Thanks

Hi All, just curious how or when the car knows it needs to regen.

 

Only asking as i been watching soot levels.

 

On the first 40 mile trip home last night, soot level rose from 3 grams to 9 grams.

 

Then on my way in to work today (another 40 miles) soot rose from 9 grams to approx 17 grams.

 

Is this normal??

Ok sorry if it’s been covered but this is what you need to do....

 

While driving and temp up to 90

 

clear codes 

 

request regen

 

monitor parameters (temp, soot, ash)

 

may have to reset the codes a few times

 

dont waste money on expensive temp sensors, flow plug controllers, plugs etc etc

 

once you do this, you will thank CARLY ;)

 

JJ
