    New injectors and DPF Issues Linked

    there seems to be a lot of talk about dpf issues at the moment. I was speaking with my cousin about new injectors in the a4 tdi 170's and he said that there have been some issues with the injectors messing with the dpf's. be good to hear from people that have had the recall done that are now having issues before I get mine done. Time to sell I think?!

    DPF's can catch many faults that would normally go unnoticed on cars without them. Leaking injector, or one with poor spray pattern can result in poor combustion which quickly blocks the DPF.
