By the way.....running in for 1000 miles at 2500 revs or less is going to provoke regenerations of the particle filter, because its higher speeds and higher temperatures that give off less particles.

And if the warning light comes on the advice is to run in at 4000 revs or higher for ten minutes. How do you run it in properly in this case?

Lastly why are not told about this behaviour in the manual or at the handover at the showroom as I can imagine quite a few people getting concerned about it when it happens to them.
When driving, depending on the fuel

grade used, it is possible that white

smoke may be emitted.

This is due to the exhaust particle filter

being cleaned automatically, and does

not affect the way the vehicle runs.

We have this mentioned in the Turkish manual also (Romanian built LHD).

Here in Jersey the engine never gets hot, just lots of short runs. My Transit was running badly so I took to the garage and the chap was really good, his suggestion was to 'revv the shit out of it' drive up hill in 2nd even leave a brick on the pedal for a couple of hours. Just get the engine hot!

the idea is to rev it up but not to hot up the engine necessarily, the exhaust needs to get hot to the temp that dpf it able to burn out the soot, diesel engines are engines that liked to be reved up, also its better for the turbo which engages around 2500 rev or so, even if u do short runs in diesel change gears around 3000 3500 rev or so it will run better and smoother and it will prevent the turbo to clogged up also

THANKS FOR THE TIP.

to be honest i love the whistle the kick and the boost of power of the diesel when the turbo kicks-in every time i change gears, i also do it in my petrol powered dacia, got the speed, but not the same feeling :D :D :D :D

Yes checked that, both the filler cap and the dip stick all clear and as you would expect, well when I say clear the dipstick has oil on it of course!

Strange if it is this DPF thing, I have had two Diesel Meganes before this car and never experienced this behaviour, do the Meganes 1.5 dCi's not have DPF?

The other thing that concerns me is that I do 100+ miles a day to and from work and this weekend I had done a 100mile round trip down the motorway the preceding day so I thought that would have cleared everything out.

Lastly when you say take it for a blast, do you mean put your foot down and rev the engine or is it purely down to length of journey and prolonged engine temp. I say that because I am still not pushing the engine probably peaking the revs at 3,000 revs on gear changes (probably lower in most cases), is this not enough for DPF?

Lastly why are not told about this behaviour in the manual or at the handover at the showroom as I can imagine quite a few people getting concerned about it when it happens to them.
I asked the Renault dealer about the DPF issue, he said that 1·5 dci engine needs a good blast for ten minutes at 50mph approximately every two weeks to clear it.
