Re: Fitting a new DPF

Me four! But I removed the heat shield myself and found a small stone had got trapped in between it and the DPF. No new DPF for me :(

Re: Towing and "engine lugging"

Yes, always try to top up with BP Ultimate, but have to take whatever I can get on long journeys because of the DS ridiculously small fuel tank

Re: Towing and "engine lugging"

Ah I get you, probably just easier to tighten up oil change interval if thats concerning you. you'd drive yourself insane trying to drive in a non soot producing manner. Yes, I already change the oil every 10,000kms/6 months. I never took LRs claim of extended service intervals seriously and negoti...

Re: Towing and "engine lugging"

Initial engine lug will produce that slight over fuel with a puff of black, but then the effect of making the engine work warms the system burning off soot, so its 6 of one /1/2 dozen of the other. towing a load up a hill is not the problem area for dpf's Yes but If you look back to the start of th...

Re: Towing and "engine lugging"

Resurrecting this thread because I've just learnt something new from the DS workshop manual which I thought I'd share in case others are towing in cruise control. If you engage cruise control "Unique cruise gear maps override the current mode (D or S) which minimizes up and down shifts to provide a ...

Re: Does front recovery point cover need to be in place?

Hi all, I’m going to a TYRO off road event with a Land Rover Owners Club on Sunday, and have been advised to have the front and rear recovery points uncovered “just in case” although the events are designed to be strictly non-damaging. Ideally I’d plan to remove the front recovery point cover at ho...

Re: Buyer Beware

Question from an Aussie D15CO owner. I got a tow bar installed from my JLR Dealer, but wondering whether your tow bars in the UK come with a pin or bolt that screws into the tongue to secure it in place, rather than leaving the tongue to rattle and thud around when towing? TIA for your replies. Hi ...

Hopef...

Same thing , I think. I have the workshop paperwork at home with the technical bumf and codes in it so will post that later. But yes it was a full recondition cycle , I had my battery replaced in July , recondition cycle September ( earliest booking). Ok, thanks. Sounds like we had the same thing d...

Re: Stop start not working

Sorry, another question Barnsh… When pushed, the description my dealer gave of what they did to my vehicle this time was that they forced it into a re-calibration mode as if they'd replaced the battery, but without actually replacing it. Does that sound familiar - is that what they did to your F-Pac...
