Has anyone tried a forced regen? They did it twice and the results troubled them enough that they sent it to a diesel shop for 2 passes at the big-boy ultrasonic wash. The more I read the more I see this becoming more and more needed. It finally came on hard and steady in April of this year, and the error code indicated that the diesel particulate filter was failing to regenerate. I can not afford to pay for that , they can charge up to 10. ColorFilter selectedColorList, 'exteriorColorFilter', 'exteriorColorName', 'Color', 'colors', null ; colorFilter. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk I will take a look at that one. If my vehicle had of gone into the sprinter dealer for its last service then as sure as god made little green apples the merc dealer would have rung me and said the dpf needs replacing and no sir a forced regen would'nt help as its totally blocked and past its sell by date as they say over here, plus, as i said i would be the £1000+ lighter in my bank account but dealer bank account up £1000+, so, from my point of view i had nothing to lose by my mechanic doing his stuff, some thing else that comes into the equation here with dealers is that they dont make much money out of warranty work but they sure as hell do with the out of warranty work, and guess what dpf are not warranty at the mileage we are on about, maybe on smaller mileage but i still would'nt hold my breath on that one.
Assuming you are using 229. Would you be able to see the difference? Is there anything you can suggest that I should do short of turning around to not damage the engine and make it home next month. I'll keep it in mind when the time comes. When they rise significantly, it's a safe bet that the engine control module is doing the regeneration thing. There are many sensors involved in the air mass calculations and monitoring. I can not afford to pay for that , they can charge up to 10.
Johnson's post helps confirms this. When I arrived to pick it up, it was beautiful! Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day. Asking because once in awhile I get rotten egg smell from my Toyota. Any advice is very appreciated! But you have to drive it. FuelTypeFilter selectedFuelTypeList, null ; fuelTypeFilter. This job needs thorough interrogation,. The onboard computer knows what the problem is so why not display it.
Any information I've relayed has been from reading service information or from using an internet search engine. Ok then I will go with your connection. Someone should try it to see what actually happens. I live in an area where light-duty diesel trucks must pass an emissions inspection. Lot Jocky drove her up and parked it and when I went to leave it wouldn't crank. Note: Certain operating conditions e.
With the low sales of Sprinters, I doubt anyone would invest the effort to make a kit for the Sprinter. While most Dodge Sprinters are sold as commercial vehicles it is also sold in the U. The above may be it. The code exists because the differential pressure sensor monitoring exhaust pressure before and after particulate filter indicates substantial difference. I still have the P242F code.
I was even extorted by them. Paying for a new one is nuts, unless it is physically damaged there is no need. If these codes are present, diagnose them before attempting to diagnose the P242F. NewUsedFilter selectedNewUsedList, null ; newUsedFilter. I tried and started with a 37g soot content.
. Stability control is included on 2500 and 3500 models. I would replace the crankshaft position sensor. The motor runs clean, no egr problems, the dpf properly disposes of the soot and you are legal. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Before you go throwing parts at this, you need to figure out exactly what is wrong.
From what I have read, the system cleans itself when a high differential pressure is sensed by emitting high temperature exhaust to burn out the soot. So you should chech it on our car models. If you shut off the engine and re start, you will get 2 revs at full power then right back to limp mode and a max rpm of 3k with little power. My Sprinter regenerates every 700 miles or so. I have over 2000 miles on the van without a recurrance of the original problem. Do you think the auto parts store one is not the same thing? If so, the prices should come down. Particularly if the van is more than 6 or 7 years old.
