DPF Forced Regeneration Process with VAG-COM for 1.4l/1.9l/2.0l R4 & 2.5l R5 PD/PPD-TDI

Prerequisites (General):

  • Ignition ON Engine ON (Idle)
  • Coolant Temperature above 50 °C (see MVB 002.4)
  • Particle Filter Load below Specification (see MVB 075.3, VAG-COM should give the specified value)

*****If the Particle Filter Load is above Specification the Particle Filter needs to be replaced since the car may burn down when regenerating.*****

Power Consumers ON (Light, Seat Heating, Front/Rear Window Heater, Climate Control)

Conditions (Driving Cycle):

  • Vehicle Speed between 30-60 km/h (18-37 MPH)
  • Engine Speed between 1500-2500 RPM (4th or 5th Gear, Automatic Transmission in Tiptronic)
  • Duration approx. 15-20 Minutes
  • Exhaust Gas Temperature before Turbo Charger above 700 °C

Drive the car based on the above conditions until the Particle Filter Load is as low as possible (close to 0 %). In case the regeneration fails there can either be problems with the Driving Cycle Conditions or with the Engine Hardware.

[Meas. Blocks - 08] Select both Groups at once 070 and 075. [Go!] MVB 070.1: Regeneration Status (xxxxxxx1 = Normal Regeneration active, xxxxxx1x = Forced Regeneration active) MVB 070.3: Regeneration Counter/Timer MVB 075.1: Exhaust Gas Temperature before Turbo Charger MVB 075.2: Exhaust Gas Temperature before Particle Filter MVB 075.3: Particle Filter Load MVB 075.4: Exhaust Gas Temperature after Particle Filter

Now Start the Driving Cycle and keep watching the Measuring Blocks (2nd Person required). [Done, Go Back] [Close Controller, Go Back - 06].

 

DPF Forced Regeneration 3.0 TDI (BKS/BMK/BUN) With VAG-COM.

Prerequisites:

  • Ignition ON
  • Engine ON (Idle)
  • Oil Temperature above 70 °C (see MVB 007.2)
  • Particle Filter Load below 68g (see MVB 104.3)
    • If the Particle Filter Load is above 68g the Particle Filter needs to be replaced since the car may burn down when regenerating.
  • Engine Hood CLOSED
  • Parking Brake ENGAGED
  • Transmission in (P)ARK
  • Temperatures at the Exhaust System may rise up to 300 °C!!!
  • No Fault Codes Stored
  • Power Consumers ON (Light, Seat Heating, Front/Rear Window Heater, Climate Control)

The Regeneration may take up to 40 minutes, the engine speed automatically increases to about 1500 RPM.

Vauxhall/Saab 1.9 CDTI TID Forced Regeneration

The exhaust gas temperature will increase to over 600 °C, so you must perform this outside on a non-flammable ground.

The regeneration procedure is completely controlled by the engine control unit.

Prerequisites:

  • Engine is running at idle.
  • Engine is fully warmed up.
  • to avoid damage the regeneration may only be carried out once.

[select engine bosch edc16 system] > [programming] > [particulate filter regeneraion] > [start regeneration] > [please wait until the regeneration to be completed]

Note, after “DPF Regeneration” is finished live data “Diesel Particulate Filter Saturation” will show 70%. When engine controller has performed a dynamic regeneration value will be changed.
