    Hi, Anyone does know 2.2 engine DPF regeneration symptoms? It's like Giulietta, and RPM goes up or it like 159? Thanks.

    Hi, Got a 2.0 jtdm with stock dpf set up. Cars getting a bit long in the tooth and I’ve noticed grey smoke out the rear window during a regen a couple of times now. Not a good look these days. Does anyone know what might cause this? My driving has changed to short journeys these days so perhaps...

    the other day the car did a regen on my way home from work, so i went for an extended drive to allow it to finish. On getting home I plugged in MES and it showed that the dpf was still 22% clogged is this just a build up of ash that regenning cant get rid of?

    I know that this has cropped up in a previous thread but need to just ask again........ Everybody knows that during Regen the car transforms not only in speeeeeeeeed but has that fantastic baritone exhaust note, love it! Although I have remapped the car & fitted a bespoke exhaust, they don’t...

    Just tried to do a forced regen. Then it said completed with errors. The errors said "preheating control unit" is that a failure on the dpf regen then? Or has it still completed just with a warning? Thanks :)

    Hi all, Today driving back from work I had my first truly noticeable dpf regen. It started its usual regen like boost dropping when coasting etc. But then this time for some reason it felt like it lost any umph under 2000rpm. I could put my foot down and the boost pressure took ages to rise? Is...

    After reading some threads on here and taking my Brera today for a forced Regen, I would like to possibly dispel some myths and inform others of my experience. As soon as Chris plugged in his machine to force a Regen, keeping in mind we had discussed prior, the requirement to take it for a drive...

    I apologise if this has already been mentioned, I have only just noticed and have owned her since September. Does anyone else notice this or regening in earlier gears? Does putting in 6th trigger the 5-10 minute regen sensor??? Sent from my SM-G925F using Tapatalk

    I have 10,000 miles on my G now. At least once every tank of fuel I feel a slight stutter and can observe a drop in current mpg on the dash. If I stop the car during this process it smells and ticks. There is no re-gen symbol on the dash and performance is unaffected. I calculate my own mpg at...

    Hi all, Noticed recently that my car feels so much better to drive when it's doing a dpf regen. It picks up quicker, has more low down torque and just generally feels smoother. What is it that changes when it does a regen other than dumping fuel in on the exhaust stroke? (can't see that making...

    Evening All :) I am just curious as to how often your cars do dpf regenerations? I do 17 miles to work 17 back usually. And the odd small drive and odd long drive. I am curious as to how often you think it should be doing a regen :) Thanks

    Hello, Wondering if anyone can shed a bit of light on the latest issue with my 159, I was driving into work this morning (mixture of motorway and city driving) the dpf started a regen on the motorway, as I pulled off at my junction and got stuck in traffic I noticed smoke coming out of the left...

    Hi all, My 2011 SW has started spluttering when it performs a DPF regen - a couple of times now it has had a really rough, jumpy idle that feels at any moment it's ready to stall. I'm probably going to show my age a bit here when I say this, but it reminds me of the bad old days if you ran your...

    Got an empty DPF and ECU remapped... but for MOT I might need to use the non-empty DPF I have... I might need to do a regen run on it for the next MOT. Can one do a forced regen with MES when the ECU is remapped?

    Hi folks, I recently changed from a 2008 1.9JTDm 159 ti saloon to a 2010 2.0JTDm 159 ti Sportwagon. I do very low mileage (6-7k miles / yr). In my 2 years owning the 1.9, it never missed a beat. I don't ever recall it doing a regen. Maybe this is because I didn't know what to look out for, or...

    Hi Folks, new to this forum and still figuring out how to search for the correct information I need. So sorry if this question has been asked numerous times before. I have a 2008 159 1.9 Diesel, and this is the first diesel I have had which performs DPF regeneration, which I was completely...

    I have had the car for almost 1 year now (1.6) The regen warning light came of twice in the first few months but has never came back on. Is this a good thing??? The car was remapped about 3 months ago and I have had not issues with the new map. I did have some issues with it not ticking over...

    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...

    I've wondered for a while so thought I'd ask ... My 159 JTDM 1.9 regens quite regularly. I notice it happening almost immediately and not just because of negative aspects such as the drop in MPG. I seem to get better, smoother power delivery, a quieter turbo whine and the car feels more...
