Agree Sarah , but some dealers just supply codes with no timings , the codes alone without timings or mileage between them sometimes doesn't help.SarahStreet said:

Totally agree , I can't understand why they didn't check DPF and EGR cooler and EGR valve at the same time.Past master said:I agree that the DPF should have been replaced earlier, as that is the cause of the EGR filter blocking up. I had this done under warranty on my DS. This is probably the reason LR are agreeing to foot most of the bill. If this were me, I'd be annoyed that the job wasn't done properly first time round, but think it reasonable that LR are prepared to foot most of the bill. The car is out of warranty, so they could just turn round and raise two fingers. I'd pay the £400 (not a huge amount on a car of this value and complexity) in the knowledge that the components will probably be trouble free from now on.
Like you, I never saw any DPF warnings. This is not the result of a blocked DPF - the faulty DPF is allowing particles to recirculate and block the EGR filter, so the warning refers to the emissions system, not the DPF hardware.
The other item I would make sure they check is the EGR valve ( the valve that controls the flow of those dirty gases from the DPF to the EGR Cooler) , They can get pretty coked up and stick intermittently then eventually stick permanently. The warranty sounds good.Mart666 said:Thank you for your most useful comments. I am totally in agreement with your comments, and have already booked a provisional date for the work to be carried out. The dealer did explain that as I am paying part of the total cost, the parts fitted will be covered by a 2 year warranty, which I would not have if they covered the full cost. I am not sure whether that means labour costs would be covered too, but will clarify that when I go along. It is still one of the best cars I have ever owned, and it will hopefully last me a good few years yet.
Hi SarahSarahStreet said:Nor will they. The vehicle cannot and will not regenerate passively, at best, a motorway run at a steady 70mph will just delay the inevitable.
Please, understand that this variant will never EVER passively regenerate - it cannot. Every 100-120 miles, it will actively regenerate, and there is no way to change that parameter....it is predefined in the BCM, and depending on your journey type, can be as low as 70-80 miles between active regens.
My best (and only) advice is to connect an OBD tool that reads in real time your DPF soot loading, so that you know that the vehicle is doing or about to do an active regen. And keep driving it. Long journeys in between regens make no difference whatsoever, and never will. You are waiting in vain, and wasting time and diesel in the process.
