    Default DPF regeneration

    By removing the plug for the EGR valve and causing theengine light to come on, does this impede the DPF to regenerate?

    That's a very good question, during DPF regen, the egr valve closes, to put max heat through the exhaust system. Not sure if disconnecting the egr would cause the car not to regen, as the ecu might see it as a malfunctioning egr.

    ...or because the egr is disconnected the ecu flags up the egr fault code, & general alarm, would these two fault codes/alarms be enough to stop the whole dpf from regen?

    I know some one will no doubt say knock the insides out of the dpf, and blank off the egr, &. code it out, but that costs money that i haven't got at the moment, as i'v got two broken springs, and am in the process of changing all dampers/springs/bushs.
