DPFs should regenerate every 300-500kms. Suggest you haven’t noticed or don’t have a DPF.

Hi
Being a Euro5 compliant build it should have one. I would think.
I had a look under neath and couldn't see one anywhere with all the under body guards.
Then I noticed that there was a Foton DPF for sale on Ebay.
Apparently it is right up near the turbo and it isn't very big. I couldn't see any injector ports on it so I assumed it was part of the exhaust manifold.
If its that close to the turbo maybe it re-gens when under heavy load when the turbo is working hard and the EGT's are up in the high range....

But no I haven't noticed any performance drop or the DPF Re'Gen light come on at all hence why I asked.

Has anyone else noticed a re-gen happening?

cheers

Russ

Hi Russ. Yes mine does the same thing. The DPF you are referring to is that the Diesel Particulate Filter and if so where is it as I have changed my muffler to a high flow one.Regards Phil

Hi Phil
I cant actually see it on mine but looking at a picture of an engine on Ebay out of a Tunland, the exhaust does a 90 degree straight after the turbo with a cast iron elbow and the DPF hangs off the end of that with a HD band clamp.
So it would be in the hottest part of the exhaust gas. I cant see any injector on it though.

If you can't see pipes and sensors attached that's possibly a close coupled catalytic converter, not a DPF. You don't necessarily need a DPF to comply with Euro 4/5 if the engine is well engineered. My Santa Fe 2.2 R series diesel doesn't have one., yet the mirror image Kia Sorento twin does?
Haven't owned a 2WD since 1982.

Hi cmar

Yes that did cross my mind about it being a Cat but it was listed on Ebay as a DPF .
I couldn't see any sensors or injector lines either thats why I asked the question.
I did think you needed a DPF for Euro 4/5 complience though and the dash does have a DPF Re-gen light hence my confusion.

Sorry for taking so long getting back but had an un-planned stay in hospital for a week & a bit after Easter

cheers
