been experiencing some issues with my 2012 2.2.Tdci TXS estate.had engine malfunction come on a few times in the past weeks. I have plugged it into my forscan software, and determined it was unable to complete a DPF regeneration due to a P244C fault code.
So reading other threads available, & making other checks etc, I have ordered a replacement valve assembly from Ebay (£180) as opposed to dealer at £250+vat?!, this arrives next week...
However around 1 month ago during a routine scan to review dpf soot load etc, It did throw up another code, for the egr...this was error P1412 (EGr frozen).
I had cleared the code, and hasn't come back since.
So this now also has me thinking that the dpf could be trying to regen more often due to a sticky egr valve?
Can easy checks be made for the EGR on this engine, either manually, or using forscan etc.
I'm changing the valve assembly, and am I likely looking at the route cause being the egr?
I have noticed that over the last month the regens seem to be more often..
thoughts and help appreciated.
