Postby mcbutler » Tue Feb 23, 2021 11:11 am

I have the 2.2 puma engine 125BHP

Is their any physical indication of a DPF regen occuring?
Can we force a DPF regen?

unless you catch in the mirror white smoke coming from back of van then no there is no indication on dash when its doing it! you could wire up a light to the vaporizer on the dash to tell when its on, you can force a static regen with some software like forscan

the exhaust sounds like its blowing abit , your dash reading will be 2-4 kh when on tickover instead of the normal 1kh and if you have heated front screen it will come on during regen and if you step outside you can feel the heat from the exhaust and you can smell a burnt metalic smell.when driving the only thing you can tell is the heated front screen, mine regens every 100 miles

There is a vaporiser also known as the 5th injector which goes in to the exhaust near dpf which sprays in fuel which helps raise the temperature in the dpf to regen it, they can get blocked and cause a fault
