    Vehicle : Vectra C

    Trim : Design

    Engine : 1.9CDTi

    Year : 2005

    Mileage : 113000

    confused I've found this with cars paperwork. What does it mean?

    So I have a receipt from a main dealing from a number of years ago before I got the car.

    It had 40k on the clock and had a;

    Reprogram ECU & Regenerate DPF

    and in the code section T112000

    I discovered car had a DPF recently with info from this site and it is a diesel estate.

    Wish it did not have one, want to go mad with tuning box.

    Plus I also found the Key Code, which I got given from the locksmith only two days ago that cut me a new key as I did not have the car pass. Typical.

    It means the previous owner has'nt done journeys which allow the DPF to regenerate or has been turning the car off mid regeneration causing the DPF to block. It then requires a forced regen which is what the dealer has done.

    Due to the changes in emission requirements, as a result of a number of factors the majority of estates fell just below the requirements so had to have a DPF fitted (drag resistance, exhaust emissions and fuel efficiency)
    Four years later the next set of emission requirements meant that all body types (of this vehicle type) fell into this category

    Remove the DPF (clean out the innards).

    Get a remap done with DPF off and get some extra power done with the re-map.

    Fitting tuning boxes is a sure way to mess the whole fuel/turbo/exhaust systems.

    Or just run a long masonry drill up the dpf from the rear. You don't have to remove it from the car to do it.

    Just remove the temperature sensor from the side of the DPF unit and don't go so far into the dpf that you hit the catalyst at the front. A 450mm drill is just long enough.

    Here's what mine was like after drilling http://www.flickr.com/photos/2849605...in/photostream
    MPG jumped up and performance is pretty lively now.

    Even just drilling halfway into the dpf made a pretty big difference, mine was badly blocked when I started experimenting and found that running 3 or 4 holes with a 12mm masonry drill halfway up the length of the dpf assembly was a good fix

    Not if the tail pipe points down. Don't argue m8internet, my 61plate Megane didn't have a DPF.
