Re: The Peugeot Diesel Pollutant Saga

As you will know Jim more power = more torque and vice versa.

Remapping is claimed to get rid of flat spots which are a particular problem in naturally aspirated petrol engines; but anything that...

Re: The Peugeot Diesel Pollutant Saga

Interesting. Volvo must be about the only manufacturer to actively endorse remapping. The claimed power gains from some diesel engines are quite staggering too, with 25 - 40% being easily achievable...

That's OK. The Brits will pay it for you; until March at least. :D

Re: The Peugeot Diesel Pollutant Saga

Driving patterns have a big effect on fuel economy; possibly even more so than driving style.

Our little Corsa is seemingly up to temperature within about three or four miles, but the MPG is poor...

Re: The Peugeot Diesel Pollutant Saga

If you look at the figures you will probably find the CO2 emissions are slightly lower; just enough to put it into a lower tax bracket.

Re: The Peugeot Diesel Pollutant Saga

Because mathematically, and under test conditions it produces less CO2 per kilometre driven than you old diesel. NOX output is also lower which I think affects the tax band for petrol Vs diesel.

Re: The Peugeot Diesel Pollutant Saga

The outside temperature sensor is different to the incoming air temperature sensor, which is usually fitted somewhere between the air filter box and the engine's inlet manifold.

Re: The Peugeot Diesel Pollutant Saga

This is a common problem I believe. Air intake sensors seem to have a limited life on all cars; usually going open circuit. They 'fail safe' at - 40 C which can affect certain functions, but does...

Re: The Peugeot Diesel Pollutant Saga

The answer to your question Jim is exhaust heat.

Catalytic converters in petrol cars are intended to remove unburnt hydrocarbons but also deal with CO and NOX.

Catalytic converters in diesel...

Re: The Peugeot Diesel Pollutant Saga

Just like any petrol powered car fitted with a catalytic converter; the exhaust pipes and silencers come after the filter and/or catalytic converter, so that is the only part that needs to be...

Re: The Peugeot Diesel Pollutant Saga

As I understand the process, regeneration is triggered by excessive back pressure across the DPF. This is most likely to happen when the engine is given some head, accelerating up a long incline, for...

Re: The Peugeot Diesel Pollutant Saga

That is only partly correct. It is failed regenerations that contaminate lube oil with fuel oil. Successful regenerations should not.

JLR solved this problem with an ECU software update, but...

Re: The Peugeot Diesel Pollutant Saga

The RZ67 is a beast I grant you, but it is a joy to use just as long as you don't have to carry it too far.

I also have a Mamiya 645 which still produces remarkable results but is much lighter to...

Well I am glad that was finally resolved. DPF systems seem to cause enough problems by themselves without intermittent electrical faults joining in!

Since our earlier discussions regarding DPF...

A bit of polish and it will be back on the forecourt in a few days.

They will sell it with an extended warranty so it won't cost the garage when it goes bang at the end of the road. :rolleyes:

No; but it could have been caused by previous failed regenerations.

A successful regeneration does not reverse the effects (on lube oil) of previous failed regenerations, so if the lube oil...
