335d cutting out - DPF fault

car cut out 10 times in the way home tonight. Called the aa and there was a number of faults logged when they plugged in, but nothing showing on idrive. One was a dpf and he cleared them all but that one came back after a drive.

It's going to a different specialist tomorrow but I've pretty much had enough of it now.

sounds like your having a nightmare with this car.

if you do sell it...get a 330d.

if you dont and the DPF is the problem remove and map it

what were the codes?

The ECU's giving you a list of things that it thinks is wrong with it, and your ignoring them?

"Fault 452A appears when the particle filter has exceeded most of the maximum running distance and serves as information/request for competent filter replacement in the BMW workshop."

The rest of the fault codes that you erased might have given some idea as to why the car was cutting out?

I didn't erase them the AA man did. They could have been there for ages for all I know. Is the dpf repairable or cleanable when that error occurs?

Your best bet is to remove it but I've never heard of the dpf causing the car to cut out.

Also...if you want people to reply to your questions you really need to click the quote button on the reply so they can see you've replied to them

Been reading up on this - seems like it could be a simple crank sensor which is causing the car to cut out. I'll get the dpf checked whilst its there and try and get him to force a regen or try and clean it somehow.

Either way it'll be up for sale when its sorted!

I have had 452A ever since I bought the car. According to my DIS/GT1 I have approximately 40,000kms left on the DPF. When I used a quality DPF cleaner in the tank this increased to 63000 kms......

If you have DPF concerns mate, I can recommend using a quality DPF cleaner in the tank and then going for a good run. Be sure to use the correct ratio per tank full. Some recommend a higher ratio if DPF clogging is suspected.

Worked a treat for me - cleaned a load of gunk out and that was before I sorted out why the DPF wasn't regenerating (stats).

Even a couple of bottles of STP stuff if you have a Halfords close by may make a difference - just a thought?

You can get the DPF removed cleaned by a specialist and refitted. I did this last year and i've have 5,000 Miles trouble free running since then

I'm not too worried about the DPF now, don't think thats the cause of the cutting out.

crankshaft sensor does make the car cut out so you can try that...although labour might be a pain though. had it on my Audi A3 dsg tdi and the gearbox had to come out in the end due to awkward positioning

Got the car back, the garage couldn't replicate the fault and said its running sweet, DPF ok and all back pressure reading is fine.

Very strange.
