    Does my car have a DPF?

    Hi guys,

    How do I find out if my car has a Diesel Particulate Filter? It's a 2006 model 2.0TDI 140 in an A4.

    Cheers,
    Bing

    Well you would have a light on your dash, lots of dribble in your users manual from Audi about how to drive your car so you don`t damage the DPF and what to do when it is regenerating ie drive slowly as you will have less power.
    06 Audi 2.0 PD140 Sport TDI Quattro S-LINE.

    Now stripped and playing with an uprated Cryo treated engine fitted with bigger turbo,water/methanol,uprated injectors etc etc.Wanting 400 bhp and 500 lb torque.

    I think at that age, a UK 140 won't have a DPF.

    However if you're not in the UK you might.

    Not very helpful I know!

    Cheers guys. It's a UK car alright, I've been driving it now for about 3000 km and have seen no lights in the dash to say that there is one. Just wondered when I had to get oil to top up.
    One less thing to worry about going wrong I guess

    Hi Guys
    To all Diesel users - DPF doesn't exist on 2.0 140 Tdi .
    It's got a "can" which look like , but is not - is nothing inside !
    Dpf been introduced to Vag cars from 2007 - only 170Bhp , and from 2008 to the rest of models

    I hope this will help
    Regards
