Yep, DPF needs a regen.2018 diesel MT sedan
Leaving the post office parking lot I got the message displayed saying "Engine Power Reduced" and the CEL is on. Engine wouldn't really run above about 2,200 RPM so it was slow getting to work. Restarting the car has a new message saying the particulate filter is full and continuous driving is necessary.
Any suggestions? After work I'm going to take it out and do some highway driving to see if the particulate filter will regen and clear up the issue. The next appointment at the dealership is on Monday so if it isn't self-correcting I'll have it there then.
Hopefully a 20-30 minute drive on the highway will resolve it (Active Regen).
If not, a trip to the dealer is in order (Forced Regen).
