If the DPF is full, just take it to the Chevy dealer and they can do a manual regen and it is about $250 and you will be back on the road again.
Did she by chance misfuel the car? Sounds very suspicious that it started right after refueling. Remember not all stations use GREEN handles for Diesel, some use GREEN handles for Gasoline. If she was at an unfamiliar station and tired from a long road trip drive it would have been easy to misfuel and that sounds fairly likely in this scenario.158,799 mi on 2014 Cruze Diesel. CEL was on, but car was still running fine. Wife took car on out of state trip 800 mi. RT, ran great. Stopped about 40 miles from home to fill up diesel. Got about 5 miles down road and started to run rough and reduced power mode. Got on side of road and went into Limp Mode. Had to send roll back to bring it home. Now it says DPF full, Reduced Power. It looks like going to have to remove the DPF Have mechanical skills with tools, no scangauge 2 though; but not a mechanic. Is it very difficult to remove DPF? Was thinking along lines of sending it to DPF Cleaning to have filter and SCR cleaned thoroughly and put it back in. $600 vs ?1500 dealer dpf.
Does anyone have info on diy removal of dpf and good photo or description of where it is and ease of removal? Think it is connected direct to turbo if I am looking at right thing. Only see three flange bolts from my view from bottom, but can't see what else I have to get to in order to get it out
I wonder how much the machine costs to induce the manual regen?this 200.00 regen is serious BS. Takes a tech 5 mins to do it they just let the car regen while they are doing other jobs.
Cruze15 not that im picking on you but if you dont know what your talking about cut the **** that 5 minutes it "takes" costs money i have the ability to do it because the scanner cost me 2500.00 plus my 10k plus in snapon tools so im sorry if i paid my way to be a professional and you think your "entitled" to think it should cost 20.00 to do it because its just a push of a button. RANT OVER
I agree with you, seems like a design flaw that this can happen, it shouldn't.Depending on how you look at it, the real issue is the system allowing itself to get into this state or GM's failure to provide a manual regen.
Rich Folk think this way, that 200 - 250 is cheap. The regen should be be an in menu car item and not have to go to the dealership.Cruz15, I run a very small professional business, there are lots of cost the average person doesn't see, at $200 to $250 to do a manual regen is a lot of money but worth it and semi reasonable. When as a business owner I see the dealership cost it is nothing short of amazing. Plus things can change, here in Indy we had a major dealership expand right before the Great Recession, he went into debt big time to modernize the ford dealership, car sales went in the toilet and he was going to loose it and he committed suicide so his family would be ok with life insurance. So $200-250 to get your car back on the road sounds reasonable to me.
Hey I just look from a realistic perspective, I did research here before I bought a CTD, I am fully aware of how the car works and potential problems, I don't like the possibility of a manual regen anymore than you do, and I would prefer this not be an issue either, but the world we both live in there is a possibility of needing a manual regen. Just because I referenced the cost as semi reasonable doesn't mean I want to spend 250 on a manual regen, but if it happens you can not drive the car unless you do a delete which cost a **** of a lot more than 250Rich Folk think this way, that 200 - 250 is cheap. The regen should be be an in menu car item and not have to go to the dealership.
You guys think we all have endless funds to do crap like this seriously?
