How can I tell if my 1.9 16v JTDM is doing an auto regen????
The reason I'm asking, is because I've noticed on a few ocassions over the last few months;
1. Seriously poor MPG for about 15 mins or so.
2. A puff of grey smoke from the exhaust, which I've seen through the back window in the rear view mirror. This only happens if I've just hoofed it and let off the accelerator.
3. The turbo guage acts differently. ie, when I lift off the accelerator it drops suddenly to zero, unlike normal operation, where it slowly decreases and settles above zero.
All these symptoms happen at the same time and last for 10 to 15 mins....well, except the smoke, which usually happens once for maybe a second or two.
Is this normal? Do I have a failure in the making? What exactly are the symptoms of a regen?
If you know.......If you can help.....then maybe you should hire the.....eh errrm...sorry....wrong forum
