    Hello, I am replacing a CFCA in a 2015 t5. What is the easiest way? Lower the subframe or remove the front and lift it out? Bought an overhauled long block, so I need to swap all parts over. Any special tools I need for this job? Going to blend the EGR and I guess I need to gut the DPF. Would...

    Hi all. I got my 2.5TDI a few months back. Some time ago (more than a month already) the engine light went on. I got a code reader and got P0471, which is related to the DPF and the differential pressure sensor. I am reading about DPF regeneration and can´t fully get the picture. It is said...

    Looks like the authorities will be getting serious about knocking the insides out of DPF's: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/10/29/diesel-drivers-face-costly-repair-bill-thousands-driving-illegal/

    Can anyone out there help me? My 2010 2.0 TDi T5 went into limp mode shortly after the Engine Management light and the DPF light came on. Having looked through all of the forums and suggestions, I replaced the EGR valve but still the same problem. I have since replaced the Mass Air Flow sensor...

    Hi Guys Had to replace the manifold on my 2007 2.5 TDI BNZ recently. Used a replacement manifold from DarkSide, that went well. Unfortunately .... In reassembly the DPF was apparently hard to refit. My indie mechanic was not able to correctly fit the rear-most of the three sensors on the...

    Pulled into the car park yesterday (2009 Caravelle 2.5 130) to be greeted by billowing smoke and burning smell as i opened the door coming from underneath the centre of the van. I quickly got down to look underneath just as the smoking stopped so i couldn't see the exact point of origin, but it...

    Hi, As can be common with our vans, I was unfortunate to have a clogged DPF recently. The van ended up in limp mode making my 174bhp T5 feel like a complete dog. After much research (of which this forum played a huge part), I decided to get a DPF delete performed by TH Performance / Pendle. I...

    ***Exhaust pressure sensor fault fixed*** This may save you £80+ for a new Exhaust pressure sensor should your engine light come on with this fault code. Mine kept coming on and in due course I switched it off via my code reader only to have it come back on a few days later. So, with nothing to...

    Hi all, I am a newbie to the forum, but a long time commercial dubber. I am on my third transporter, its a 2006 LWB 2.5 tdi auto, with BNZ engine. I've had the van for nearly a year and its been superb, but over the last couple of weeks I have noticed (on three occasions now) a large amount of...

    Hi, I'm hoping someone in the know can help me out. My van is a 2009 model 2.5tdi BNZ manual with 203k miles on the clock. I only bought the van recently and I've fallen foul of the DPF trap. The van was running poorly and the exhaust was blowing from the manifold and the joint between turbo...

    I got a dpf fitted on my t4 to meet the london LEZ law, and when i did the guy said to be careful of people trying to steal it as the metals in it are worth several hundred. After a year of it messing up, i decided to remove it again (waste of money i know), im now trying to scrap it for money...

    I currently do about 70litres of diesel a week over 400ish miles with about half that around town. It regens about twice a week and annoys the hell outta me. Have been considering a DPF removal but would like to know, realistically, how much better is the MPG after the delete? Mine's the 2.5...

    Hello all, Been reading the forum a lot these past few days, its great T:. I have read some good threads relating to the questions I am about to ask, but couldn't find the exact answers. I have a 2003 ACV TDi T4 syncro. It has done 120,000 kms which I believe is about 75,000 miles. I was...

    On average, how often should the DPF regen? I guess it depends on the type of driving. I do mostly in town (and in rush hour too!) but with a regular weekly 50 mile each way blast on the M4 but I catch mine doing a regen, I'd say, couple of times a week over about 400 miles! A lot of it is short...

    Hi all, Ok so driving about town, A & B roads all is well, but when driving on motorway 70mph, the van gets a flashing glow plug light too frequently?? Has anyone had & resolved the same problem? Have had the van checked with a fault reader recently but nothing came up.. Have read the forums...

    Hey everyone, I've been having power loss issues and what-not and a local mechanic popped some injector cleaner through the fuel system (via the filter and some in the tank) to see if it would sort it out. Kinda made it a bit better but now my DPF (departiculate filter) that I had fitted to...

    Hi All, I have significant problem with my DPF filter :( power loss, some white smoke coming up from exhaust etc, dpf light on... After some small research I found the problem a very expensive to solve. My knowledge is not great in that area and I would like to ask for some advice : It is...

    I have a 58 plate t5 1.9 102ps and tried to find the dpf and couldn't seem to find It, I found what looked like a muffler just after the flexible joint but this had no sensors on it so assumed it was just a muffler? Any advice? Samsungtracy
