Dredded EGR and DPR Regeneration
I've been following threads covering EGR valve. So happens that having experience a complete shutdown of my car (Alfa 159 2.4 JTDM), alfa mechanic replaced the EGR valve. Not a lot of information and never saw the replaced part. So having started on this forum regarding teh engine light, I was annoyed that no more than 5 days after the enging light came on. So I found finally a cable (ELM327) and software (FiatECUScan) which lets me reset the faults. So now I am at a point where I beleive my driving habits, inner city hops, is causing engine clogging related to the components of the EGR. I would lhere from experience whether it would be good practice to force a DPF regeneration at frequent intervals or when the %clogging is up around the 60-70%. If someone has experience the the software and interface, that would be appreciated.
