    Potential problem??

    Just noticed over the last few days im getting an occasional wastegate flutter sound and when i park the last couple of times my dpf has been doing a regeneration or whatever its called, is this anything to worry about?

    My 2012 VW Crafter on occasions when coming to a standstill from driving the idle revs instead of 750-800 are nearer 1000 ...


    My cluster has one of these lights :-

    But it is never on when this symptom occurs ...

    My 2008 Crafter used to do the same, it never had any DPF issues in the year I owned it nor did the DPF light come on in dash ...
    Perhaps a normal VAG trait ...

    Fine and totally normal for a DPF regen.
