Mk 5 TDi DPF Issues


G'day Dubbers,

My Mk5 has the DPF light continuously on with Check Engine light as well and OBD code for the DPF fail. No matter what I do it wont do a burn and the mechanic tried to do a software induced burn with no luck. So I'm wondering if anyone out there has had some experience with this; good or bad, and maybe offer some advice or a ballpark figure of what the cost might be to rectify.

Thanks in advance,
Sean.

What brand of fuel are you using? Try some BP Ultimate diesel and go for a good long drive at highway speed for a couple of hours at least.



I read it on samba, so it must be correct.

had this just after they did the recall work on it. the mechanic down the road managed to do a burn cycle on it to fix it but it just kept happening. we were using bp in it as well. it was worse if it didn't go for a long drive every couple of weeks.

Yeah, I've only ever run BP Ultimate in it since I've owned it. I had a different mechanic (VW Diesel Specialist) perform forced burn (regeneration) and he replaced DPF differential pressure sensor, lasted 24 hours until blocked DPF again. Just had some intake manifold flap vacuum operated solenoid replaced and another burn...24 hours later, so far so good. We'll wait and see.
