  1. When my EGR failed at 100k I got the limp home mode, the engine light on an no problem with driveability was the dpf... It might be the egr and this is only and hours labour ... Fingers cross... As for my AURIS , sold it at 182000 last month and still going strong and flying... But company car forced the sale.. I was up for running it till 250000 !!!
  2. RIGHT ! Happy Days... 2.5 weeks following the repair, and putting around 1500 miles, and no fault has come back. So I can categorically say the repair was successful. The repair consisted of; 1. Removing DPF - Admit this was a B@st@rd of a job, and required me and a mate with a ramp... and a good 7 hours work... (blame it on us being un-experienced...) 2. Sealed inlet and poured a bottle of this stuff. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Protec-Diesel-Particle-Filter-Flushing-Liquid-DPF-Cleaner-1L-TUV-Apvd-Saab-/130657336978?pt=UK_Vehicle_Oils_Lubricants_Fluids&hash=item1e6bc8be92 3. Sealed bo
  3. Ahh! ok understood! I will bear that in mind... if this does not solve it.
  4. This might give you an idea, i am guessing it wont be much different from one unit to another... http://www.toyota-tech.eu/aimuploads/%7BEBA1B948-D82E-06B8-4914-8132DE94D82E%7D/TNS700_08545_0950_AIM_001_063_0.pdf
  5. OK this sounds like : They only replaced the DPF and kept the old pipes. But this means they used a old version of the DPF or an aftermarket part? There is a NEW DPF introduced into production since June 2007 (including new Pipes) for older DPFS the service repair is to replace the the pipes with new ones and an adaptor ( diameter of new pipes are larger to stop clogging) , I have had the Toyota Dealer do the full diagnostic check on my car according to tech bulletin EG-0170T-0311-EN DESCRIPTION OF PHENOMENON Some customers may complain that the check engine light (MIL) comes on. The asso
  6. Excellent result Auristi, I guess the fact the DPF cleaning failed to sort it points to the blocked differential pressure pipes... I am still driving my car , no issue, other than engine check light on... but i have ordered, the replacement pipes, gaskets and other bits to do the job , I am going to try and do the job myself with a mate . (Save me between 300 - 600 quid depending if i took it to a garage or dealer...) I will Remove inlet manifold and clean ( Toyota Diagnosis indicated MAF level is low and inspection shows a greater than 3mm covering of particulate matter) EGR has already b
  7. Hi all... I am going to detail all the results and the diagnosis carried out... but in summary Differential Pressure pipes blocked. = cost of new parts 30 quid (roughly) fitment by toyota delaer 600 quid... plus they found the EGR slightly open, (cleaned ok) , and the manifold was dirty, (200 quid to clean up) potentially affecting the MAF ( as could be expected from a 160k car...) Running a forced re-gen bypassing the pressure sensor causes a full regen and the core getting to temperature. and diagnostics indicates "normal", but as soon as it need uses the pressure sensor signal it forces
  8. Update it has been over 13 days and over 1800 miles running with the P2002 error code. The car is at the dealers tonight and they are going to go through the full diagnosis procedure, to determine what is wrong... A couple of developments 1. Since adding the Arcoil , I have had a couple of white puffs out the exhaust ( a bit like regen)... so not sure if the stuff has cleared the system enough. and whilst the fault code stays on it might be regenerating or clearing any blockage . 2. Car has been running really well, in fact i would even say it was quieter than it has been ... so I am wonderi
  9. That is pretty inpressive Auristi, I have a strong feeling my DPF is not clogged, so i will wait to see what the diagnosis says... if they say it is the differential pressure pipes, liquimoly probably would not work, so i will get those replaced. If they tell me it is the last possible cause in the full diagnosis, a blocked DPF, then I am not going to replace it for £2000 cost , so definitely will use your recommendation, looks like it is doing well with you... ^_^
  10. Adam, I think out of principle I am going to get Toyota to do this by the book. I think it will be a good learning experience I will summarise my experiences and at the end you will all be able to see : 1. My error code, how i got it, what i did between having the fault and getting it repaired. 2. Impact it had on my driving commute. 3. time it took to do it by the "book" 4. Costs implied 5. Actual fault diagnosis process and results 6. What was the final root cause. this should help others make their mind up how to go about it if they suffer a similar fate. Also they can then decide on repair
  11. I have tried it , as it mentions it in the bulletin, that is one of the sensor checks that could trigger the error, but twice i tried after resetting the error code , it came back..., after around 50 miles...( I am wondering it this is when a regen cycle kicks in and this creates a big pressure differential and hence triggers the fault... don't know...) I was even counting to 8 and backing of the throttle for 50 miles... but it did not seem to work. (Painfull exercise also when you are driving for an hour.... ) An interesting discovery today... I went to an alternative dealer to discuss the
  12. 7th day of commute. I have reset the code by disconnecting the battery , but the code re-appears around 50 miles later... still performance is fine, nothing noticeably wrong... Poured another bottle of Wynns DFP cleaner into a full tank,... still waiting for the Arcoil cleaner stuff. stuff... Keen to hear what Auristi has to say about the cleaning operation... I have booked my diagnosis day with Toyota Dealer, Quoted for just over 3 hours a grand sum of 400 quid, which they are willing to drop down to 250! but against the 2k total cost...i am still going to go through with it... there are a
  13. End of Day 5 ... no problems or issues with the car , I am now not even noticing the error lights (kind of... not as if you cannot see them but I am not worried about it) So to date -I have driven 124 miles x 5 days = 620 miles , average mpg = 38mpg (same as always ... no change...) -No significant smoke out of back. no abnormal noises etc... basically car is running fine... However , I have got a quote from dealer for the FULL diagnostic of the DPF fault, 3.25 hours and loads of money... but i am going ahead with it, as I am going to play this by the book and summarize my issues with this
  14. Day 4 of driving and still drives fine (124 miles x 4 days) yesterday I contacted the dealer to request a quote on completing a FULL diagnostic check on the fault code P2002 (Technical Service Bulletin EG-0170T-0311-EN) The dealer is going to check and get back to me (still waiting...) Auristi I would be very interested to hear what is the outcome of your DPF cleaning process. SR Smithy, thanks for that it seems this might be the most cost effective manner to get a fix, IF it is down to the DPF being clogged. ( I know with 160k it most likely to be, but there are other possible causes ident
  15. I think if the DPF is diagnosed as clogged , that is exactly what I will do , remove and clean it... if it is the sensor pipes blocked, i will check cost or replacement and decide if I clean them or replace them with the new service kit parts, which will be a better fix... My EGR was replaced at 110k under warranty, there was a change to the EGR valve from what i gather of the bulletins to reduce deposits building up in them... so i am going to check if my replacement part was new or old design...
