Re: Fiat Croma (automatic transmission, tyres)

The degradation filter has last been reset at 174.000 km and now the car had 198.000 km. We replaced the oil and the oil filter and reset all the service counters including the oil degradation counter which was on 66% before the reset.

As far as the DPF filter goes, I had it removed just yesterday and the EGR valve electronicaly disabled. The filter was completely blocked allthough we manualy started the regeneration of the DPF via PC a few days ago. Maybe the lack of proper service parameters caused the filter faule or there was some other cause that I'm not aware of. My mechanic said that approximately 2 years after he bought the car, he started having issues eith the DPF, the computer said that the filter was broken, but when he drove the car more dinamicaly there were no issues. When driving slowly (speed limits) the DPF filter problems repeated.

The next thing I'm going to do is to replace the oil in the automatic gearbox, the same mechanic that removed my DPF filter can also replace the whole oil in the gearbox for half the price I mentoined before, so for 150€ I'm not going to think twice.
