Every now and then I seem to get a stuttering and slight dips in power. Just wondering if this is when the DPF regen is happening or do I have a bigger problem looming?

Best way to know if it is the DPF Regen is to dip the clutch and see where the idle revs are. If its 1000rpm ish then it is doing a Regen.

I notice mine, it starts to drive really lumpy, and you struggle to hold a constant speed. Stupid piece of ****, oh well, its coming off next week :cartman:

I also get loss of power at any speed but around 2000rpm, do not know if it the CAT regenerating ( DPF ) as this has happened after long journeys on motorways doing 70mph so not sure, as NO warning light comes on.
Not sure if it’s a calibration issue?
Or possible Turbo wastegate sticking or EGR sticking.

Car going in for service tomorrow so will ask them too.

Anyone else had a problem??
