Hi friends worldwide,

Yesterday a 2008 TDV8 came back in. It was originally sold to Italy and has been here for 7 years now.
In spite of doing various cleaning cycles, which are pretty pointless with our bad diesel, his DPF error now comes back to bite him.

He gets a message which translates as engine failure ( fallo motor) and that is it, it stops at about 1100 rpm.
This is a nuisance if you are on the Interamericana with 3 kids in the car.

I have looked again and again, the engine is perfectly fine, no other errors, it accelerates well unless it throws a wobbler.

So I contacted Pete Bell, he reckons better don't do it all at once.

I have been thinking, is it wise to take the cats out in the same move, produce a lookalike and remove the DPF replacing them by a nice fat tube?

They are not a legal requirement outside the EU and they are the first I have seen here.

How are your experiences?

I think they are as useful as EGRs or transfer box warts.
