    Angry Skoda Karoq DPF diesel engine forums

    Hi, I have a 1.6 Skoda Karoq and have serious problems with the DPF filter. The main cause of stress for me other that the £3000 pound bill for a three month old car with a required DPF filter replacement is the fact that Skoda customer services completely ignore the question I have about how the Skoda KAroq DPF regeneration should work. From experience the Karoq would try and do a DPF regeneration every 300-500 miles regardless of the driving style or distances. i did around 65 miles a day on dual carriage ways so why it needs to do a DPF regeneration so frequently I don't know. However the main issue for me is the if there is not enough fuel in the car, approximately 1/4 of a tank it seems the regen failes. Which wouldn't be too terrible however it seems that even when you then fill it with a full tank of fuel it will never do the regen unless you take it to a Skoda garage and get them to force it to regen. This to me seems to be a serious fault and a design flaw. Has anyone else had this issue or know why this is the case?

    The filter can be cleaned effectively for a tenth of that, on the 1.6TDI we find using a top brand fuel such as Shell V Power significantly reduces DPF problems.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Well certainly something to do going forward. The garage say it can't be cleaned and a replacement is required. Seems very extreme for a car that is only 3 months old.

    No they are talking rubbish unless it is burnt out and if it is that means a problem with the car. We use DPF Clean Team in Hinkley. On Friday we fitted a DPF they cleaned, back onto a Polo 1.6 TDI and I have just been on a run to force regenerate and set it up, it is perfect. His dealer also said it needed a new DPF plus the flexible coupling was broken, quoting him silly amounts of money and he saw me on another forum and arranged to bring it to me. We sent it for cleaning and when it came back, stainless steel welded in a new coupling. I have only ever fitted one new DPF, we have cleaned hundreds and the new one I fitted was only because a sensor thread was damaged. It was a pattern one by B&M and was an absolute disaster, after the third replacement and after multiple visits by the customer, DPF Clean Team restored the damaged thread, cleaned the filter and it has been perfect ever since.
