  • DPF problems poll

    It seems that the DPF thread is the most visited area on the forum. Since I have ordered a new NS but have not got it yet, I thought it would be interesting to see exactly how widespread the problem is.
    This poll only applies to auto Did NS Pajero.

      Yes, I was sort of hoping that we only hear the complaints from people that have problems but that the majority have no problems at all.

        So far, touch wood, Ive never had a problem with the DPF.
        My journey to work is 8kays. Most of it is at 80kph with very little stop start driving so that probably helps.

          Hi - one other factor in this poll would be how many Kms done before you experience the problem or have not experienced.

          My light went on after 1000km but was only for a short time.

          Good idea re poll.

            Also probably good to say that this applies to DID Auto vehicles only, or else you will get lots of Petrol and Manual DID drivers voting if they don't know what a DPF is....

                My DPF light came on this morning on the way to work for the first time. I extended my drive to work and at about the 15 minute mark once the vehicle was up to normal operating temperature it extinguished itself - burnoff complete I guess. 8100km. I have been doing lots of short trips of less than 5km over the last few days from work to the city to see customers, and this was probably the reason for the DPF light illuminating as the Paj would have barely warmed up with each drive.

                  wilmo does not sound like you have an issue then.. i am sure mma would say that was normal. i think i agree, although i would like to speak to a bmw/citron/merc service guy to see if they have customers that are cycling the dpf "frequently" like others here.

                    I'm wondering why the DPF is only fitted to the Auto ?

                    I assume a Cat Converter is still used.

                      I had the problem with the DPF just after my 7500 service, I took it in to the dealer and they did a burnoff. The car is now due for the 15,000 service and the light is back on, plus the rough idle when you turn it off.
                      looks like it might be a problem every 7500kms ? I wonder if the type of fuel contributes to the problem ?

                        suggest you take the poll back to the more recent post on DPF
