Re: Is DPF issue for 2014 CRD fixed now?

This is a strange one, I'm using the same dongle (though have only driven the car once with the new iCar3 dongle, as opposed to my old ELM WiFi .):confused:

Re: Is DPF issue for 2014 CRD fixed now?

I've bought one as well, to replace my older ELM device, but can't try it at the moment as I'm away from home, not in the Jeep, (flying) for the time being.

So it goes to sleep after 30 minutes....

Re: First oil change some info and comments

I'm thinking it would likely be not just about getting the level correct. It won't be anyway, till the engine has run and oil filter etc filled.

The wait would almost certainly be for allowing the...

I'm sure he was talking about turning off the Aircon to avoid overheating, not for more power of less fuel.

Re: Is DPF issue for 2014 CRD fixed now?

Thanks.
Yes, sounds like a good test, (though my van is heavier.)

Anyway, I have yet to hear of one actually overheating, it's just a bit scary watching the gauge.:eek:

Re: Is DPF issue for 2014 CRD fixed now?

That's certainly my experience thus far.
I have not yet seen anything but DPF% increasing, even when towing at highway speeds AND up hills.
I've yet to see any evidence of "passive regeneration."

I wouldn't worry about taking the battery out, too much hard work.
