    Default How to Tell if DPF is present or not.

    As there have been numerous posts of Deisel owners asking if their car has DPF, this thread is to clarify some points. If your CDTI is:

    - A Vectra Estate
    - A Signum
    - Automatic transmission
    - 3.0 CDTI 184PS

    It will have a DPF for sure.

    It should be noted however that although the Euro 4 1.9 CDTI manual hatchback/saloon Vectras generally don't have a DPF, few actually came out of the factory with one believe it or not. If you're in doubt as to whether your car has them or not then:

    On the drivers door plate look at the last number on the plate; it will either be:

    0.5 - You have a DPF
    1.20 - You don't have DPF

    I love the smell of diesel fumes and I once sniffed a 1.6HDI equipped with a DPF and I was so disappointed that the exhaust didn't smell of anything Drove a 3.0CDTi 184PS and again...no smell how disappointing

    Thanks for the info gents. My 2.2 siggy has 1.30 on the door plate so no DPF for me.

    I suppose I'll bump this as it's pretty useful and now I'm wanting to go out with my torch and look.
