    Default Particle filter regeneration cycle urgent - 407 diesel 2.0

    Hi has anyone dealt with this warning before? It also has been coming up with the depollution system faulty warning too. Blowing black smoke on acceleration and lack of power.

    What im wondering, can the filter be cleaned or have to be replaced?

    Try a forged regeneration using the diagnostic tools. Failing that, it can be removed and professionally cleaned, or eliminated from the system and the ECU reprogrammed to forget it was there (this option may not be legal in Queensland).

    thanks for the info. Out of curiosity went and got a price on the part. Around $950 for an aftermarket part.

    How much would a truck workshop quote you to remove and send off for cleaning?

    Head down towards the industrial/trucking belt around SW Brisbane. A clean should set you back about $500 plus any cost getting it off and on. I had no trouble googling three places.

    Doing it yourself involves high pressure hosing, and the cerium that comes off (from the Eolys) is a rather dangerous substance. Have a look at this RACQ blurb - http://www.racq.com.au/~/media/pdf/r...20filters.ashx

    Sometimes, they get stuck part way through a regeneration and you then get a cloud of black smoke. You'd try a forced regeneration or possibly just keep driving it above 60k and see if it clears by itself.

    If the particle filter is blocked then the (non-DIY) water jet backwash will sometimes fix it.

    Another cause of lost power and excessive black smoke is if one of the turbo air hoses has split and it is no longer developing expected boost for the fuel being delivered. So, check all of the air hoses before spending any money.

    Thanks.
    This warning message really is there to let you know that the car is running in its cleaning mode.

    The car will run on a programmed throttle response mode and must be run in this way for a period. I have found it best to cruise at 60+ Kmh for 20-30 kms. Once you have done this, turn off the engine and when you re-start all will be fine.
