    Same ole W03 probs - newbie help

    I would still look for a pipe with a split in it. It sounds very similar to a fault that I had a couple of years ago. It can be very difficult to spot.

    Dpf

    Thanks for the quick replies. The car is a 2004. I have added a Dpf cleaner. £9.99 worth a punt but I'm not convinced. I will leave it as it is for the moment and try and inform the mechanic that it's all okay for the moment. The car is due a B service in 2000 miles so I will ask for Star...

    w203 dpf

    I have done a bit more research on the forum and owners of the same car have reported problems with either a split pipe to or from the intercooler. I am confused as where to start as the pipes are difficult to inspect, but sound plausible and is a cheap fix. However, there is no smoke under...

    w203 dpf

    Thanks for the reply and advice. The fault has now changed in that power has been restored, but I still get a wooshing sound under acceleration. Is this the DPF trying to regenerate? I dont want to try the air mas sensor until I am sure what fault I have, then I can try and eliminate it...

    Hi everyone, This is my first post and I am looking for some advice please. My W203 220cdi estate intermittently goes into limp home mode. I have had the car diagnosed on Star by a respected garage on the forum and the advice was the exhaust needs to be removed to replace the DPF. I have...
