159 check engine light
1.9 06 jtdm 50k miles. egr replaced last year. mostly a steady motorway driver, x2 15 mile motorway trips every day. generally i'm a slow driver.
for once, i was slinging it around a bit today and i got a beep and the engine warning light as i was driving through town. it has since become an unhappy car and though it will drive ok there's nothing much there if i put my foot down.
rang the dealer and suggested dpf to him after looking on here and he told me to go and run it down the motorway in 4th gear. but he covered himself by saying it might be something else. anyway, fair play to him.
so does this sound like the most likely 1st thing to try before taking it in? in which case how fast, in what gear, and for how long? any ideas what else it might be?
oh, one other thing, had the timing belt changed last week.
