Re: DPF clogging.... need help

Thank you everybody for your reply. For now dpf still works normally (i even saw regeneration working ). So i've change thermostat and also pourd STP 5in1 and i guess for now it works. If there will be any change, i will let you know. Of course in between resistor for ventilator died.....always something with Fiat :S And i've talked to a lot of people here, and most had problems with dpf (from fiat, mazada, vw, audi, etc...) and most of solutions were, to take it out. I also think technology in never cars is beyond what normal mechanic knows today... well just my experience.

Yes both the service reset and oil degradtion counter should be reset at every oil change. Unfortunatly Fiat did not make it easy to do or publlicise the requirement. My Croma had two fewer degradation resets than Fiat dealer service stamps when I bought it.

Re: DPF clogging.... need help

The reason for your book missing stamps is probably because once dpf came along an oil change was not always part of a service. The oil was only to be changed once the oil light started flashing and oil change re-sets for fiats have been available on most after market diagnostic equipment 1-2 years after it all came about. Also I was in a dealer when dpf came out and I spent 2 days on a training course for it, so dealers were made aware of it

The service record showed the oil was changed every service. Maybe they only thought it needed reset if the light flashed. Most small garages are aware of the DPF reset requirement but they are NOT aware that it is a separate procedure to the service reset on some Fiats. Unfortunately most garages still seem to push the yearly oil change whatever the mileage. I had a big discussion with a Ford main dealer about the wife's petrol Focus last year.

Ok, my oil light started to flash, so I guess they didn't reset oil counter :S

Re: DPF clogging.... need help

Just to let you know, dpf is still working after 2 months and few 1000km, so i guess thermostat solution worked for me. Will let you know if anything change.
