159 JTDm - Have Engine Checked
Not been on for a while. Only today I was at a Photography studio when one of the blokes commented on my 159 Sport Wagon, saying "Gorgeous Car, had any trouble?" To which I replied no - it's been good as gold for a year now since I first bought it! Then bu&&er me, the 'Have Engine Checked' Warning came up on the way home tonight!
Looking at the threads it sounds like the DPF scenario as my 159 has just ticked past 3 years old (****). If a sensor or something has gone, does anyone reckon I could get it done on the extended used car warranty?? (think I get 3 months cover once the original 3 years dealer/manuf warranty ran out - better check!).
I'm going to try the bottomed out key fob trick tomorrow. Stopped when the light came on, and re-started thinking that might help but didn't actually take the fob out.
Do most of you guys add in Diesel additive or use a premium diesel like the Shell Optimax one? I don't but avoid supermarket fuel (luckily got a cheap Shell near me that price matches supermarkets).
Do you guys reckon I'll be OK to drive up to Nottingham and back from Salisbury before i can get it to my Indie at the weekend?
