Worth trying, if it doesn't work a forced regen can be made but it's entirely possible is not the for but rather an sensor malfunction one side or the other of the dpf. These and the mass air are known to be made of chocolate on these cars. Good luck with it.

Yes, apparently, the car never gave a warning until there was a workshop error message. We were told that we needed a new filter, after paying £80 to have the diagnostics. We needed the EGR valve replacing after a sensor failed. This was at 64.5k. Repair was £1,400 lol!

WOW! Just wow! You have four choices, first is to get a good indie to give a second opinion (I recommend Sharps) , or replace the filter and sell the car, or get a dpf delete, or sell it on to someone who will get a dpf delete.

The frustrating thing is that it was just before we got a recall to make the engine run lumpy, had it happened after that, we’d got it done for free.

SAN FRANCISCO, March 19 (Reuters) - A woman was killed by an Uber self-driving sport utility vehicle in Arizona, police said on Monday, and the ride-hailing company said it had suspended its autonomous vehicle program across the United States and Canada.

The accident in the Phoenix suburb of Tempe marked the first fatality from a self-driving vehicle, which are being tested around the globe, and could derail efforts to fast-track the introduction of the new technology.

The vehicle was in autonomous mode with an operator behind the wheel at the time of the accident, which occurred overnight Sunday to Monday, Tempe police said.

"The vehicle was traveling northbound ... when a female walking outside of the crosswalk crossed the road from west to east when she was struck by the Uber vehicle," police said in a statement.

So not as safe as some people would have you believe huh.

The question should be: was the accident preventable; would the average human have avoided the pedestrian.

We will of course never know, but it may serve as a sobering effect to those who seem to think that self driving cars are the answer. I'll find a better video in a minute, showing semi autonomous.

Thanks Prof Lardner; didn't realise you were still about. Still, we've at least managed to discover that people don't die just because train exceeds 30mph.

My regards to Mr Ludd. tongue.gif
