DPF regen questions
OK guys, this may sound stupid, but please bare with me.
We have our 2.4 JTDm since April, we have added a few thousands kilometers to it, but so far, I am not sure it has ever regenerated its DPF. It's mostly used in short drives around the house, so I am not sure I've ever reached the proper conditions for a regeneration, nor am I sure its DPF filter is intact or drilled through, this is a second hand car, but it came with full service record and the previous owner seemed to be very careful with it, everything inside and out is in pristine condition, even though the car had about 185.000 km when bought. This guy must have driven the car with white linen gloves, even the steering wheel is in top shape.
Anyway here are my questions:
1. Is there a way to tell if the DPF filter is there and it needs to be cleaned up? I have MultiECUScan, but I have no idea which parameter to check for.
2. Since I am getting an EGR dongle and blocking plate, is there any way to tell if the car has been remapped to eliminate the DPF regen and the EGR? Can MultiECUScan read a parameter which will tell me if my EGR is working or not? The dongle I am getting doesn't have the DPF feature, only the EGR codes blocking.
Thanks for your help guys.
