    Audi/VW engines with DPF

    And remember the dreaded DPF pressure sensor problem!

    I've already been hit with that a few months ago

    Does this apply across the whole VW/Audi group including Seat n Skoda, 7GN option code means no DPF.

    I'd be 99% sure it applies across the range.

    Crasher can confirm though.

    Yep, changed mine a few days ago as the engine light came on, easy DIY if you have Vagcom to reset the sensor.

    The guy in Audi said they change loads of them so they always have plenty in stock.

    Re: Audi/VW engines with DPF

    I can't tell you what has what remotely according to PR code but all modern stuff has a DPF.
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Re: Audi/VW engines with DPF

    7GN is for the A6 only I think, “emissions class eu4 and diesel particulate filter preparation” so prepared for but not fitted. 7GG is with DPF so EU 4 “exhaust gas concept with particle filter” and so is 0GG, 7MG, 7MB, I got bored after that.

    Is that right, Chris? I've got a 2007 30.TDi TDV with 233PS, and the data sheet for it includes the following code and description:

    "7GN Emission Standard, EU4, DPF Preparation".

    Should I conclude from this that my car is not fitted with a DPF?
