    Default Forced Regeneration

    I took my 1.9cdti 150 in to the garage the other day as when it is ticking over it feels like the car is bouncing and isnt smooth when crawling until you get above 1700 revs.

    It has had a new EGR valuve, (previous owner). The garage said that it might need a regeneration as I only do town runs and a lot of stop start.

    Not sure what this means.

    Cheers

    If I understand this correctly, the DPF catches a lot of the sooty grot that exits the engine and at various points the DPF then does a 'regeneration' where it uses fuel to burn off the accumulated aforementioned grot. If you're doing short journeys then the DPF will clog up, your engine will suffer and you can get on some low-rent BBC consumer programme complaining about how your car doesn't work properly.

    Is there a noticable change when you do this?

    Is your car an estate or an auto if it isnt that I dont think it will have a DPF fitted.
