    Oil sludge filler pipe, burning smell & oil spots in wheel arches T6.1 150ps 10k miles

    Hey Guys & Girls, wondered if you might be able to help, I’ve got a T6.1 150ps which has covered about 10k miles now and just coming up to a year old, noticed a really bad smell while accelerating up the motorway yesterday and just thought it was either a car up the road or someone having a...

    Surely that ain’t right? [Regen]

    Firstly excuse my ignorance. My T6.1 spends most of its time parked up on the drive. I do try and get out for a run at least once a week, although this will soon be changing to regular jaunts now the better weather is approaching. However. It seems every time I go on a journey I get a rather...

    Erratic idle

    Today while the van was idling it started making a funny noise like it was missing ticking (if you get me), could smell some sort of fumes when I open the door to hear it warning lights or change in revs. Van had only been started up a couple of mins before as we were moving our...

    Stop/Start and Regen algorithms?

    Hi folks, I'd like to know the algorithm for the Stop/Start feature and the Regen. My Stop/Start is so random I can't work out why it seldom cuts in. It also regens 3 or 4 times per tank. It would be nice to know why. Can anyone shed some light please? T6 2016 140 DSG camper conversion with...

    Do Eu5’s ReGen?

    I have read many posts about regens but have a question. Do euro 5 engines do regens. The reason I ask is I have a 2016 euro 5 140bhp and have owned it from new. Have now done over 76000km and as far as I can tell it has never done a regen. 99% of my journeys are fairly long so engine always...

    Orange Engine Light (exhaust)

    Hi guys, Long time T5 owner and previously suffered from the EGR issues that affected the early 5.1 vans (same also happened on a VW Golf). Very frustrating and expensive experience!! Upgraded to a T6 in November - T6 Shuttle SWB DGS Bluemotion 150 (2016) with 70k on the clock. Pulled in on...

    Carista app DPF regen

    Had an email from Carista support today regarding beta testing a new feature - DPF regen on my T6.1. I've not had chance to try it yet but could be very useful for the those who mainly do short journeys. Will give it a try tomorrow and report back.

    MPG has just fallen of a cliff after service

    Last week I had my T6 serviced, new brakes all round but nothing else special was done to it. On Saturday and Sunday I drove to Leicester for work, down the M1, foggy so took it easy, no head wind, no rush, and the week before same journey, 41mpg, and I would have expected the same or better...

    Regen and fuel consumption joys.

    Just wondering if my car is actually doing a regen all the time. When I stop, a lot of the time the fans are still going etc. Even after a long drive. I've heard some engines are prone to regen issues? Anything I, or vw can do? Also, I can't get over 32/34 mpg. Even on a long motorway...

    Is there a way to turn off regen without a map after DPF delete?

    I'm getting sick of 27mpg. After 65k miles I can get 35mpg easily but as soon as it starts regens the fuel level drops and mpg drops off a cliff and it lasts for a good 35miles 3 times per tank. VW cannot find anything wrong. Don't get me started on the lumpy throttle driving during a regen...

    DPF Regen - LED to show you it’s starting?

    DPF Regeneration T28 Highline 150ps 2018 I think it’s poor that you don’t get some sort of warning light as to when the regen process starts. Yes the tickover revs rise to 1000, sometimes you get a smell, fan comes on and sometimes a performance change in the engine. My experience is only the...
