The Vauxhall Insignia when released, came into the UK market at a high price of £25,000 and although we believe it was over priced, it did sell very well. In fact, more than 30,000 Vauxhall Insignia’s were sold to fleets in just 18 months of being launched. It is a very well designed and practical car with plenty of engine power from the 2.0CDTi and spacious enough to be used for taxi’s as well – they are also very fuel efficient.

We’ve done our research on this car because it’s one we were a bit particular about. We liked it a lot and couldn’t really find much else wrong with it. After doing our research, we found there aren’t any major common faults to worry about with this car – Other than the obvious Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) – but once that’s removed, it is a great car to keep.

Vauxhall Insignia Blocked DPF
Unfortunately there is the one major fault as with almost all modern diesel cars now days and that’s the issues with Blocked DPF’s (Diesel Particulate Filters). The Vauxhall Insignia DPF system is no different and is prone to getting blocked up which can of course lead to other problems in the future.

When the Vauxhall Insignia DPF gets blocked, the excess back pressure makes its’ way back to the turbocharger and can cause “backspin” which will damage the turbo charger unit. Once the seals on the turbocharger fail, the unit will begin leaking oil into the inlet which will then also coat the EGR valve system in oil. The back pressure can make it’s way back up to the engine and cause some real major issues when the crank case over pressurises. We’ve seen it all:

  • Blown / Leaking Turbocharger
  • Injector Seals
  • Seized Engine
  • Over Pressurised Crank Case
  • Carbon Backup
  • Damaged EGT Sensors (Exhaust Gas Temperature Sensors)

The longer you leave the DPF unit blocked on your Vauxhall Insignia, the worse things become and the more costly the repairs get.

Vauxhall Insignia 2.0CDTi DPF IssuesVauxhall Insignia Blocked DPF Solutions
If your Vauxhall Insignia DPF is blocked, you have a few options however obviously we only recommend a removal as it is by far the most inexpensive money saving option with a lifetime fix. You can have the DPF filter regenerated and although we can do this for you as well, we no longer offer this service because we consider it a waste of money. Once the filter is blocked up beyond the point where it can naturally regenerate, we feel it is pointless to forcefully regenerate the unit because the problem will not go away, it will eventually come back. You will either have to change your driving style to suit the DPF model Vauxhall Insignia or change the vehicle for a non-dpf model.

You can fit a replacement filter to the vehicle and this will cure the problem but we only recommend new genuine parts, not second-hand used parts and not copy / aftermarket parts. They will not be manufactured to the same standards, regardless of whether or not they say OEM specification, they will not last as long as a genuine part. Of course, there is a massive price difference but we’ve had customers spend £300 on a copy part from parts suppliers and then 6 months later come to us asking us to offer a DPF removal because their first option wasn’t successful.

The last option is one we recommend. If your Vauxhall Insignia 2.0CDTi DPF is blocked – we recommend having the entire DPF system professionally removed from the vehicle. Once you have your DPF Removed, not only will the problems be rectified for the life of the vehicle, you will not experience any more DPF related problems in the future (because it’s no longer existing) but you will also gain an increase in performance and fuel economy.

Vauxhall Insignia DPF Removals
We offer a bespoke and completely custom 4-stage DPF removal session for all Vauxhall Insignia customers. This will consist of both the calibration of the vehicle electronics system to de-activate the DPF electronically and also remove the entire DPF physically from the vehicle as well. This will ensure no more fault codes, no more warning lights, no more loss of power and no more problems.

  1. Delete fault codes & reset ECU (Turn off Engine/DPF light)
  2. Physical removal of DPF filter (Removing the blocked DPF completely & permanently)
  3. Custom Sinspeed DPF Removal software – bespoke to your vehicle
  4. Smoke-Correction service to guarantee an MOT pass – Unique to Sinspeed DPF Removals

Vauxhall Insignia 2.0CDTi DPF RemovalsWhen remapping the Vauxhall Insignia DPF out of the ECU, we do things manually – not with automated softwares. We will download the data from your Vauxhall Insignia Bosch ECU and manually scan through the 1000′s of data strings to remove & modify all DPF related data strings. Some of the data strings for the DPF system will be interlinked with other sensors such as EGT sensors (Exhaust Gas Temperature Sensors), EGR Valve (Exhaust Gas Recirculation), Lambda/o2/Oxygen Sensor and so on. Automated softwares will attempt to delete all data strings and by doing so, will delete partial sensor related data strings as well causing data corruption which may not always be apparent immediately after having the DPF removed. In fact, you may not realise there are problems for up to 250 miles until the ECU stores a permanent fault code and shuts down in to SAFE MODE (Limp Home Mode).

We only offer DPF removals with a 100% success rate, a life time software warranty and a guaranteed MOT pass thanks to our Smoke-Correction Service. To find out more about our smoke-correction service, please check out our smoke-correction article.

Removing the DPF will not cause you to fail an MOT, we can guarantee this. It will not bring up any error messages and the car will not go into LIMP mode. Also, you will never experience any Regeneration messages where the ECU normally attempts to clean the DPF – this is because the DPF is no longer existing.

Finally, you will experience an overall increase in performance, smoothing out any flat spots and safeguard the life of both your engine & turbocharger.

    Hi
    Just wondering can you recommend any company in the ROI completing this operation as I have a 10 reg Insignia 49K miles and the DPF light is flashing on every 150-250 miles at this stage. ‘ i’m concerned with back pressure as I find it uneven at 2000rpm..
    I serviced the car but had no fuel filter in stock at the time, so it needs the fuel element changed. I think its time to remove the DPF, I would be grateful if you could help me out on this.
    Regards
    Conor
