    Default DPF ??? v6

    Hi

    I am considering buying a 55 plate Vectra 3.0 v6 diesel (sat). Its a facelift with 50k on the clock, all the toys plus leather etc.It on for £4k.
    Is that a good pricre do you thing?

    Also my biggest concern is that it has the Diesal partical filter, should this be a concern, I hear stories that any car with one should be avoided any comments appreciated.

    Lastly , the old fuel pump issue. Is it usual for the pump to "break" following a remap?

    Cheers,

    Mark

    I may be wrong but I think all the facelift 3.0's have but the earlier ones don't,my 04 3.0 doesn't have one.

    What's your intended use of it? Mainly motorway runs or commutes including lots of high-speed roads (A roads, M roads etc) or just around the doors or sub 10 mile commutes?

    If it's motorway stuff, then the DPF won't give you a cause for concern (when operating correctly) however if you use it to go around the doors or only for very short journeys, you'll probably find that it soots up and causes you hassle.

    General rule of thumb for a DPF equipped car is to give it a good run out once a week or so to ensure that the regen can be completed. If you let the DPF soot up until it's completely full, then even a forced regen might not clear it and you'll end up needing a new one.

    Best thing to do is get it mapped out and deleted. That way you get none of the DPF worries at all!!

    Provided its been driven the way is should to allow dpf to regen. Services on time etc theirs no reason to have problems.

    the only reason I see cars with dpf problems is because the driver is in aware.
    Of what it is an how to drive the vehicle or its high milage

    i assume if you getting a 3.0 derv. Your not going to be doing much town driving. So in which case if its going to be a motorway monster. Or even a good 50/50 you'll be fine.

    so long as you take it an let it regen. You'll have no problems.

    as for the pump. Provided its mapped correctly. Not just a generic map/ tuning box you should be fine.

    You should have the DPF removed as quickly as possible!

    Just the fuel saving alone, not to mention how much quicker the pick up is!
