Re: 8,000 miles and in the shop

I'm approaching 7000 miles and I have not noticed a single regen yet. I'm nervous.

What do you expect to see?

There is no indicator when the DPF regens. It happens as often as every 70 miles out to a forced regen at 280 miles. If you see an EVIC warning message...drive at a steady 50+ mph for 20 minutes. Avoid excessive idling and city only driving.

Thanks
Are you changing the oil yourself, or just verifying that the dealer/shop used the proper oil? I ask not because of the oil spec, but because of the Oil Life counter - it MUST be reset after a change, or the unit will not regen.

There does appear to be some weird DPF things going on, and I do believe they are doing a flash to correct some of the likely false-positive warnings...

I thought I read where there is a noticeable difference in power and other "physical" indications. I just haven't experienced any indications, EVIC warning or otherwise....

Re: 8,000 miles and in the shop

You guys don't understand. DPF Regen is happening frequently without your knowledge unless you monitor EGT (Exhaust Gas Temperature) using an ODB2 reader. When you see the EVIC message, the DPF is WARNING you that normal regens have not cleared the filter and it is getting full. Normal mixed city/hwy driving that allows proper regen should never produce an EVIC message for DPF regen unless something else is wrong.

Re: 8,000 miles and in the shop

The discussion of this in multiple threads points out that it would be good if there was an indication of when the regen is in process (like on the non-North American models). I suppose Jeep figured that too many drivers would think it was a failure instead of information on something normal.

Re: 8,000 miles and in the shop

One of the most obvious indications of a "normal" regen is an increase in fuel consumption, and yes, a light would be good but of course people would complain to their dealer.

Eg: I saw one whilst driving at a steady 80 kph (50mph), when the fuel consumption went up for no obvious reason from 5-6 litres/100 klms to about 9 litres/100 klms for 10 mins or so. No EVIC message happens for that!

It just uses extra diesel injected during the exhaust stroke to dramatically raise the EGT. I have no doubt I would have also seen a very significant EGT rise had I had the Dash Command App running at the time.

The point is that as far as I am aware, you won't get an EVIC message for a normal regen.

Cheers
