Diesel Juke have DPF issues ?

Post by Marki » Fri Oct 16, 2015 1:59 am

Hi I am considering replacing my 1.6 petrol juke with a new model (2015) 1.5 dci The only thing that worries me is DPF issues - I had a citroen picasso before my juke and it was in the garage often with the dpf clogging up. I had read that the engine in the 2015 model ( which is the same as the diesel engine in a Renault captur) doesn't have any dpf issues as it just "burns it off" with a small loss in mpg when it does it Are there any know problems with regular 4 mile journeys in a diesel juke ?

Hiya...

I'm on to my third dci Juke and now have a 1.5 dci..2015

I do loads (daily) stop/start urban journeys along with a 240 mile journey via motorway/a road and B road once a month.

I havent experienced any dpf ossues. As i understand it, there's a 5th injector in the dci engine which assists with the regeneration, not being techy, havent a clue what this means.

I reckon as long as you give it a blast on the motorway for at least 20 minutes at hugh revs, this should be good enough to clear any soot accumulations.. Havent seen any dpf issues mentioned on forum.. Not for a long long while....

Hope this helps.

I had the 2012 dCi and I had a DPF blocked and I have a 15 mile each way journey - I was lucky that it "only" cost me about £600 - they dealer managed to get some of the parts under warranty and also did a lot of the work/parts at cost - if they hadn't done this, I would have been looking at a minimum of double what I paid.To be honest, whatever claims are made regarding burning off, I really wouldn't trust them - for it to burn it off, you need to do a mimumum 20 minutes at a minimum 2500rpm. My car, apparently had tried to regenerate, but hadn't done this successfully. If you ask an honest dealer, anything less than around 12000 miles a year means a diesel simply isn't a sensible proposition. If those journey's are what you do most, then a diesel engine really isn't suitable - aside from the DPF issue (which could be very expensive), in winter your engine will never warm up (diesels are much slower to warm than petrol) and you'll never save the additional cost of buying a diesel with the better mpg.

.. adding to my previous post, don't get me wrong, if you are doing the right sort of journeys (Fee's monthly motorway run helps), the dCi is a cracking car - I loved driving mine, but in hindsight, it just wasn't suitable for me, much to my regret.

Actd, you have a point though.. In the winter, MPG really suffers, it takes an age to heat the car up and i always worry that I cant run the car on my monthly trip to clear any soot...the winter of 2010, a case in point...

If you have any doubts, stick with petrol but personally I would never go for a 1.2

I would almost call it mis-selling that dealers don't make clear when diesel's are not appropriate - realistically if your Citroen was often in for manual regeneration, then the diesel isn't suitable.
