Re: dpf

Hi.
The lad next door to me has an 08 Astra he uses for taxi-ing it has 70,000 miles on the clock. He is very light footed and in the last 3 months it's cost him a fortune, New inlet manifold, full exhaust as it was choked up, EGR valve, water pump, alternator and service, over 2400. its a 1.9 CDTI estate.
So who is saying that Diesels are cheap to run???

Re: dpf

my car is regulary serviced,i got it back today,the garage stripped and cleaned the dpf/exhaust and it is going ok apart from the engine management light failing to go off,was also told if it clogs up again it might be time for a new dpf,i asked the mechanic if he knew about that website offering a dpf for 348 but he hadn,t heard of it either

Re: dpf

Out of curiosity. That website says regen occurs when you go on a motorway run so the exhaust gets hot - but surely driving at speed would actively cool the exhaust down - in much the same way as the fans on the radiator rarely come into play at speed as the airflow is more than adequate?
Alternatively, sitting in a long queue of traffic and the fans are almost constantly running to try to keep the engine cool. (so would the same not apply to the exhaust?)

Re: dpf

We are just having to install dpfs on our machines, different application to cars but a regen is expected to take 15-25mins and is needed every 8-15hrs.

The regen is planned by the calculated soot load in the ecu or the pressure drop across the dpf. you may find after the next regen the light will go off as at the moment it still thinks there is soot in the dpf.

The service life of our dpf is listed as 3000hrs.

Re: dpf

Sludge, the exhaust gases will be too cool if the engine isnt working. The timing of the fuel is altered and extra injections added to put fuel into the exhaust which then burns in the dpf.

alot of models also put extra load on the engine by putting air con on or heated screen etc thus increasing work rate, the ulysse done this.
