    Engine cooling fan running on

    2019 T6 204bhp 4Mo. New to me, so not used to it's quirks and foibles yet. Today I've done quite a few short journeys, maybe no more than 5-6 miles each and after every one the engine cooling fan has been running when I've finished my journey and run on for 3-4 minutes afterwards. I'm surprised...

    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 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...

    Regen Light Avoidance

    Only had my T6 150 for a few weeks and only covered around 250 miles. (20k on the clock) Most of my distance is short journeys. Annual mileage is always around 3 -4k as I work away a lot. Not yet had the experience of the Regen light. I did once hear the fan working after I switched her off, I...

    Spotted And Completed My Regen Today

    So I have been making short trips the last few days and it started doing a regen yesterday as I parked up. Today I noticed it was regenning again with the idle at 1000 rpm as I pulled up, so instead of switching off, I planted my foot up to the rev limiter 2500 rpm to see if I could finish it...

    Dpf Regen & Dsg Coasting

    I’ve started to use the coasting function to try and get a few more mpg. However with the engine dropping to idle every time I’m off the throttle will this interfere with the regen? Surely a good blat at a constant of over 2000rpm will favour a complete regen cycle over interruptions from...

    Dpf & Regen

    Hi all, first post from me and I am sure this issue has been discussed but I would like some neutral confirmation of what my local dealer told me yesterday. Monday of this week my emission control lamp came on, it went to my dealer yesterday to be checked out. The fault related to the DPF and...

    Holy Regeneration Batman

    Long euro 6 rant warning. Well i always know when the van is regenerating. The throttle goes lumpy at low revs/speed due to the retarded timing and turbo boost threshold takes that bit longer to come it. Then the gale force winds when the engine turns off mid way through a regen and the high...

    Regen without the tornado?

    Sometimes when I switch off the van, it's blatently obvious when it's doing a regen. Radiator fan sounds like a plague of a thousand locust trying to escape your underpants. However, from time to time, there's just a quiet whining noise and a faint roar of what sounds like fuel being burned in...

    Possible engine regen?

    Did the normal swimming lesson trip last night. On finishing, i drove the van the short journey home. The engine sounded, well, a bit weird. Gentle acceleration in second gear produced a kind of erm, quiet grinding noise?? I drove round the block to confirm it. When i pulled up outside the house...

    Euro5 regen

    Hi My t6 140 is a year old now and we have covered just over 8000 miles, I have never heard it making jet engine noises or had the fan running when walking away from it. Does the euro5 not suffer with the regen like the euro6, or have I just been lucky Cheers john
