    Default DPF

    Right, another thicko question.

    DPF is the Diesel Particulate Filter....RIGHT?

    Where is it?
    What is its fucntion?
    Can this get blocked and how?
    How is it best to clean this or un-clog it?

    I have just read about this on another post and am thinking could this cause some perfromance lag?

    Thanks guys.

    Sorry, car is 1.9 CDTI SRI 6-Speed Manual.

    Im not sure, think a DPF is only found on auto's - Whats yours ?

    I understand it has a certain cycle, in which it self-cleans. During this period, the car is less
    responsive....

    Correct me if im wrong !!!

    Its not only on autos but not sure which manuals have it. It s located somewhere in the middle section of the exhaust, looks like a silencer but with a few pipes going to it. It can be forced into a regen via tech 2 or go on a long drive on the motorway, although it could take sometime before it regens.

    i am sure someone on here managed to take it off, knock the middle out of it, do something with the pipes and away he went.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
