Dpf Dcat Confusion

Recommended Posts

Please tell me if I have this right:

1. D-CAT is Toyota's name for DPF.

2. I have a 2007 Avensis 2.2 D-4D T150. It doesn't mention D-CAT anywhere on it. Therefore, it neither has a DPF nor D-CAT.

3. So no problems with regen, nor any need to do an 'Italian Tune-up', nor drive at motorway speeds for at least 20 mins every so often.

Do I have this correct?

I did an 'Italian Tune-up' two days ago on the bypass (lovely torque on this engine in second and third), and there was no smoke coming from the exhaust.

Thanks.

DCAT just means Diesel Clean Advanced Technology, you don't have DPF on you car thank god BUT the odd Italian Tuneup will still do your engine the world of good helping to keep the EGR and manifold clear as recommended by plenty of members on here and my local Toyota dealers tech.
