Good recommendation. 80 km on the motorway in 4th gear to take care of the excessive revs and blow the crap out of the DPF. And simply generallt clear the system out. That’s the drawback with most diesels in non-public palms, they dont get scorching sufficient for lengthy. At all times pussyfooting round and in 4th gear nearly earlier than leaving the driveway with the thought it saves gas when it doesnt because the engines by no means attain their optimum temp. May occur to petrol vehicles as effectively.
My drawback is that I’m nowhere close to a motorway and take into account the excessive mileage on this automotive a deterrent to going very distant from house in any respect. So I suppose I must rev the heart out of it around the lanes simply earlier than the contre and hope for the very best.
I’ve had a it a very long time and am very keen on it, however don’t know what to do if it fails once more. third get together insurance coverage is minimal to maintain it within the backyard however I suppose it nonetheless wouldn’t be authorized for it to not have a CT.
That’s not required in any respect. Should you drive the automotive with the engine at about 2500rpm for 20 minutes (or in 2 10 minute bursts shut collectively) or so that can generate ample warmth for the diesel particulate filter to burn off the surplus soot deposits. That’s undoubtedly not ‘revving the heart or if it – 2500rpm must be about 80kph.
Strive to do that a minimum of as soon as per thirty days – twice a month could be higher.
Thanks Brian, nonetheless tough discovering area spherical right here although. Can the identical be achieved in a lonely spot whereas stationary as a substitute?
Hello David. It’s higher if the automotive is transferring. The small variations in engine velocity will all assist the method. Additionally, revving whereas stationary causes higher engine stress because the automotive is missing the circulate of air by way of the radiator.
10 minutes at 2500rpm is simply about 14 km. Might you do a there-and-back journey alongside a D or N highway to a close-by city?
You would possibly wish to get a tin of catalyser/sonde/egr cleaner to place in your gas tank first
Its not a lot the highway velocity because the engine velocity driving in 2nd at excessive rpm you wont break any guidelines or land velocity data however the scorching gasses will clear out the DPF.
David, what do you take into account”excessive mileage”.
It may not have a DPF. @David_Spardo what had been the excessive “pollution “?
True, is determined by its age I count on.
Whether it is pre-DPF then possibly this might assist.
can alos be discovered within the Intermarche on the automotive shelf.
Effectively plenty of recommendation there, due to all.
Excessive mileage @Rocam is sort of half one million kms. Simply checked , really 441,728 kms
The automotive solely got here again from the mecano ysterday and I believe he forgot to go away the contre kind in it @Mark so don’t know in the meanwhile.
Don’t know what a DPF is however I’ll tackle board no level in revving whereas stationary @_Brian and sure I count on I may take some little used roads regionally for some excessive revving low velocity driving.
Replace: @Mark The shape was within the automotive and that is the related bit on the topic. All double Dutch to me in fact however make of it what you’ll
8.2.22.b.2. OPACITE : L’opacite depasse les limites reglemantaires, en l’absence de valeur de reception ou les mesures sont instables.
All he mentioned to me earlier than presenting that was ‘le air pollution est un peu trop’ after initially saying ‘tout est bon’.
Consider it as a catalytic converter however one which works on soot particles
