Re: and today i have mostly been...

Like the Kitteh which jumped and stuck to that tree trunk...then did it again :lol: Remember we babysat those kittens being born last summer? last week Mum Cat got squashed by a car, dead. Yesterday one of the Kittens* went the exact same way :( Cats and busy roads don't mix well. I live down a priv...

Re: 1.6HDi DV6 Engine - DPF questions

So it's not really much to worry about, will file this under: forget about it for now :cheesy:

Interesting about how the system changes the injection timing, I've noticed it do this as the engine starts getting a bit jerky and and sounds DEAD ROUGH...also when you stop the Rad Fan will be running.

Re: 1.6HDi DV6 Engine - DPF questions

I see, what would you surmise would be the mileage when the 'de-crap' clean out is required?

Why can't dizzlers just have a filter cartridge that the owner can remove and put in the bin? kinda like a hoover bag?

Re: 1.6HDi DV6 Engine - DPF questions

Thanks for the info rwb, so at what stage would the DPF be 'full' of additive? at much higher mileage? and at that point is it removed/cleaned or replaced? If I'm thinking correctly then 'stage 1' is to refill the additive pouch and carry on driving, then 'stage 2' is to replace/clean the DPF itself...

Re: Car for my Daughter to learn in?

Changed the Oil on the Twingo last Sunday.... Placed a huge clear plastic sheet down in the Garage so I could drive onto it....typically the wind kept blowing it away from the car as I approached it :lol: Oil change all went good with brand new Renner dealer sump washer (see previous lesson learnt) ...

1.6HDi DV6 Engine - DPF questions

Our Citroen is currently on 68K miles, something in the owners manual says about 'topping up' the eoloys fluid at 72 or 75K miles, that's fine I can understand that and the ECU being reset or whatever to suit. BUT - what about the DPF itself? does any maintenance need doing to these units? (sorry I ...

Re: Diagnosing AC issue

If the compressor 'clutch' definitely 'clicks' then and the inner part of the compressor pulley rotates then the compressor is working.....hold the larger of the 2 aluminium a/c pipes (the low pressure one) and you should feel cooling going on. The fact that cool air is not being delivered in the ca...

Re: Anyone had a Smart Meter fitted at home?

Blimey, thanks, I'll get the kettle on :lol: Sadly there's no bulkhead on the garages, I'd wanted to do the same before but 'wall washers' are the only option. Actually I still have a screwfix HI/LO bulkhead fitting with motion sensor and dawn/dusk sensor with a GLS filament bulb that's never been c...

Re: Anyone had a Smart Meter fitted at home?

The road is private so there's no council street lampage, the developer put these Bollards in for everyone although I seem to be the only one who's been able to replace the control gear on mine and keep the thing going. I converted next-door's to 240v E27 flourescent cluster (energy saving) thing wh...

Re: Welly in the Guinness Book of Records

Yes I found out yesterday :( To be honest there was far too many cars there I think it surprised the organisers and it kinda fell into a free for all, no-one knew what was going on half the time. It was a good atmosphere though so glad I went, it was good to see inside Bruntingthorpe it's literally ...

Re: Anyone had a Smart Meter fitted at home?

Bailes - I have a Bollard fitting on the front of the house with a SON-E 70w lamp and control gear, wondering if this is a drain on the leccy bills (it's on a dawn/dusk sensor) I always thought it was an efficient way of lighting but would an LED "corn" type lamp be much better for me?

Re: Anyone had a Smart Meter fitted at home?

I think new homes design is way off where it should/could be, even the layout of houses hasn't changed much. A minor thing but I think new houses should have a proper laundry room large enough to wash, dry and iron clothes - out of the way of the main living spaces. Ground/Air source heat pumps for ...

Your Water has changed a lot :shock: What's the thing with dishwashers? even on 'Eco' ours runs for at least 2 hours, probably 2.5hrs, why is it so long? and especially as Mrs_Welly insists on 'mega rinsing' everything before it goes in the machine... I might suggest tonight that we wash up the old ...

Re: Anyone had a Smart Meter fitted at home?

I chose Green Network Energy. No smart meters involved for either. I'm with GNE, they tried to increase my monthly amount from 138.00 to 168.00 based on 'usage' .....I conducted a metered 14 day test with them and they said "oh ok you can stay on the 138.00 plan). To be fair I've had this with all ...
