Re: time since last regen min

well, another regen kicked in today , just 150 miles since last one.
Completed in approx 15 min without interruption while driving.

How bad can it get to have regen every 150 miles?
What is normal regen frequency anyway?

Re: time since last regen min

he wants to know if the car is affected by 2016 service action (recall to update software), but this engine is not affected, VW check says:
"We are pleased to confirm that your vehicle is not affected by the EA 189 NOx emissions issue."

Re: time since last regen min

Regen now complete, see picture below.

why would the status show 22% after only 3 min since completion of regeneration cycle?

and another one 8 miles or 30 min later:

Re: time since last regen min

Another short 20 min drive to work and back. Regen status says pending, according to the picture below. And there is a value of 110 mg/mile in upper right corner. Not sure if this is calc soot or something else? As for frequent and incomplete regens ,this is mostly due to short journeys, daily commu...

Re: time since last regen min

thanks, this explains a lot to me. Now, what about forced regen, or filter clean? Should I go and apply forced regen using another app with the Carista dongle (still searching for best one), and then do dpf clean, using chemicals ? This would then resolve the issue of frequent regens, interrupted re...

Re: time since last regen min

I don't have experience in aged filters. You may ask to some real expert. The regeneration described in your post was probably interrupted before its natural end because the finished value is too high, it should be between 2 and 8 grams depending on the driving style in that moment. You can easily ...

Re: time since last regen min

post injection values shown in updated picture are both at 0.00, and yet, red hourglass is still showing regen is pending, if I am not mistaken. How could this be? Contradiction ? I would like to know if forced regen will bring soot value to minimum and would the dpf benefit from cleaning ? I am tem...

Re: time since last regen min

thanks for explanation, just to confirm "the finished value is too high, it should be "soot mass calculated" or something else? yes, the regen has not yet completed (red hourglass visible) because next day regen duration said 17 min and soot mass was higher at 16.99, also progress bar was at 72%.

Re: time since last regen min

yes the VCDS scan has shown oil ash value of 0.05 l which I was told was good indicator, but I am trying to compare that against oil ash residue= 22.1 g as seen in VAg DPF app. I am struggling to understand are these similar indicators and how can a value of 0.05 l can be translated to different uni...

time since last regen min

Hi, can you please clarify what this means? - time spent driving the car or - time in general ? it says 456 min, which is 7.75 hours so I am guessing it can only be time spent driving . Previously scan done by vcds has shown last regen time in minutes and seconds which calculated to 60 days and oil ...

Re: Dongle issue

Dongle from ebay description says it supports following: ISO 15765-4 CAN (11 bit ID, 500 kbaud) ISO 15765-4 CAN (29 bit ID, 500 kbaud) ISO 15765-4 CAN (11 bit ID, 250 kbaud) ISO 15765-4 CAN (29 bit ID, 250 kbaud) So I guess this is a good case for return because it does not match description. :?:
