Troubleshooting / Re: 2.2 diesel misfire or stutter.
« Last Post by Jamesbil on Today at 05:10:59 pm »
As an update on the regen...

Local mechanic said first attempt failed, second was successful and he also did a third one. Soot level was at 34 before and close to zero after.
Cleared all codes, said there was a few various module ones, radio, door module etc.

Drove it away fine, as normal. 6 miles later TPMS, TCS and SCBS lights on and check engine again...
He is going to look at it again tomorrow.

(BG244 ordered Anchorman)

Sounds a frustrating problem Jamesbil. Worth taking to a Mazda dealer for diagnostic?

Also must be some warranty from the Wolverhampton dealer? When you bought it presumably they knew you'd be exporting it to Ireland, did you agree anything re warranty procedure with them?

I will take it there if it cant be sorted by the local guy.
Warranty wise the dealer said he couldn't offer their 30 day warranty (which would have expired by now anyway) as its being exported, however this doesn't affect my rights under consumer law.
They did try to sell me an extended warranty, but on reading the terms it only covered UK.

I’m immediately suspicious!  They could have sold it because it was playing up.  Alternatively, if you drive harder than someone who drove it like Miss Daisy, you might be dislodging more soot. The forced regen might work if they do the proper Mazda method.
They sell a huge amount of cars and have every one checked by AA (for what it's worth) so I would think they are fairly reputable.

and now I'm getting "soot accumulation in dps too high"  :-\

I’m sorry but your problems are an accumulation of diesel, engine oil and emission system compounded all together.  I don’t know if you owned from new but it is vital that these engines get top quality oil and fuel.  What happens after that is to some extent down to duty level but any lapses in maintenance standards will eventually bite somebody’s arse and in this case it’s you.  If you are loooking for somebody to give you an answer I doubt you’ll get it.  You’ll have to do the things you can do.  My advice on BG244 has fallen on deaf ears but in any case I’m not sure your answer is £24 worth of additive.  If it were me, knowing the extent of expense you could be facing I’d give it a good try.  Add a can to a tank of premium diesel, let it run through for 10-20 miles, get it right up to temperature then go and drive it hard up the steepest hills you can.  If you are lucky, the heat and pressure will purge some of it out but if you are not, prepare to get serious with it.  It could start getting expensive.

Thanks Anchorman  :-\

I bought the car 2 months ago from V12 motors in Wolverhampton and exported it to Ireland. It came with a full Mazda service history all done on schedule. It has just gone to a local garage for a forced regen. After which he will diagnose and see if it needs a dpf clean.
I will also try the BG244, tho I have been using Dipetane.
The only diesel we get over here is diesel.. no premium, there are some Tesco stations but not many. I only buy from big brand stations.
I'll report back after the regen.
