Q: I have a 2009 vw rid 2.0 AND THE Dpf LIGHT CAME ON AND I LOST POWER DO HAVE TO REPLACE THE DPF?

asked by on

My car DPF light came on and I LOST POWER while driving volkswagen said my soot level is full why would I lose power

My car has 181532 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The computer system will go into failure mode and limit the engine power due to needing to do a regeneration of the catalyst. Once you fill the DPF fluid and drive the vehicle the engine can then go into regeneration and should run normal again. If not have the vehicle scanned and checked.
