Volkswagen (VW) Transporter T5 1.9TDi / 2.0TDi + 2.5TDi DPF Removal Session

Volkswagen VW Transporter T5 DPF FaultsVolkswagen (VW) Transporter T5 DPF Removal
The Volkswagen (VW) Transporter T5 comes in the 1.9TDi, 2.0TDi and the 2.5TDi engines with a range of specifications and horsepower variations from 84Bhp right up to 180Bhp. The Transporter T5 is a great van and one of our favourites – just like the older T4’s and the Crafters.

Unfortunately the T5 Transporter also suffers from DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) problems but in more than one way. We get a lot of cars coming into our workshop which just have the warning lights flashing up on the dash like a christmas tree and engine power restricted (in limp mode) – which is the common DPF problem on almost all modern vehicles, but with the VW Transporter T5 we see numerous problems all relating back to the root cause being the Diesel Particulate Filter.

Common VW Transporter T5 DPF Problems

  • Lumpy Idle / Hesitant To Accelerate
  • Smell Of Burning
  • Poor Fuel Economy
  • DPF Regenerations Too Frequent
  • “Particulate Filter – See Owner’s Manual” Warning Error
  • Limp Mode (Restricted Performance)
  • DPF Light On / Coil Light On (Flashing) / Engine Light On

We see a lot of Transporter T5’s come into our workshop that regenerate the DPF too frequently, sometimes as frequent as every 90 miles!

I Have Transport T5 Problems – What Can I Do?
Your local dealership will tell you of two options to either remove & replace the filter with a new part or carry out a forced regeneration. Both options aren’t really good enough and for the reasons detailed below:

  1. Replacement DPF – Replacing the DPF will most likely get you back on the road but at a hefty price. A Replacement DPF (Genuine part) will cost you £1000+ (+Labour, +Programming & +VAT). Even then, it won’t last forever and the day will come again when the DPF will block up and require replacing again. To maintain the new filter you should do 50 mile motorway journeys at a constant engine speed above 2000rpm.You can replace the DPF with a copy (pattern) part but there are no guarantees it will last, we no longer offer replacement copy DPF’s because all too often they fail within just a few weeks. A genuine DPF is manufactured with precious metal elements to aid in the self-cleaning regeneration processes – a copied part will not have the same precious metals and so won’t be as efficient. A copied part can be fitted in as little as £400+ (+Labour, +Programming & +VAT) but the problem could come back in as little as a few weeks.
  2. Forced Regeneration / Chemically Cleaning The DPF – Each time you chemically clean the DPF or carry out a forced regeneration, it will damage elements of the particle filter (DPF), the elements required to aid the self-cleaning process. This means that even if a Forced Regeneration or Chemical Clean is successful in reducing the ash volume which had built up inside the DPF, future regenerations won’t be as successful on the road and you’ll find yourself back in the workshop sooner rather than later. A Forced Regeneration can cost as little as £150+ but there are no guarantee’s it will last at all.

Volkswagen VW Transporter T5 DPF DeleteHow Can Sinspeed Help Me With My Blocked Transporter T5 DPF?
We offer a more permanent solution to all your DPF problems. We believe the most economic way to cure any DPF related issues is to remove it permanently. Not only will it solve your problems but at the same time it will help prolong the life expectancy of both your turbocharger and engine.

We can completely remove the entire DPF system from the Transporter T5 and de-activate the DPF from the Engine ECU. We do this by downloading all the data from the ECU via the OBDII on-board diagnostic port and then manually scan through all the data strings to locate & delete the data strings relating to the DPF system.

Note: Some data strings will interlink with other sensors to help operate and maintain a good running vehicle, people that offer “cheap dpf removals” will be using automated software that will automatically scan and delete the files and run a very high risk of deleting sensor files at the same time. The problem is, this automated software will also delete the MIL system and will stop the engine light coming on if you have any other problems on the car – this means you will no warning lights on your dashboard and may drive away happy at first, but you may also run into very serious problems not too long down the line. In extreme cases we’ve had cars come to us where people have messed around with the ECU and shot a whole through the piston inside the engine due to altering the fueling system too much.

We manually delete the DPF system from the ECU and modify any interlinked sensors to ensure that the sensors will continue to function correctly whilst not requiring any DPF readings.

Once the DPF has been removed from the vehicle, the programming has been completed and a full diagnostics has been carried out to ensure no further faults are on the vehicle – we then carry out a complete Smoke-Correction service to ensure the vehicle is optimised to run efficiently without the DPF and continue to pass it’s MOT.

What Guarantees Will I Get After My T5 DPF Is Removed?
After we have completed the DPF Removal on your Volkswagen (VW) Transporter T5, you will notice an immediate increase in power & performance as well as an increase in fuel economy. You will no longer experience any kind of DPF-related problems on the vehicle, no warning lights, no smoking issues, no lumpy idling or hesitation on acceleration and no annoying Regenerations. Your vehicle will be out of Limp Mode and regain full power with increases in both Power & Torque.

We guarantee you will be happy with your Transporter T5 once the DPF is removed and we cover all our work with a Lifetime warranty and a guaranteed MOT pass.

  • Hi, I have a 2010 t5 thats just had The DMF/clutch changed and has Since developed a very erratic idle. No fault codes have come up on the garages diagnostics and The issue may have been there before the DMF was changed, but it wasnt anywhere near a bad. The van also had Issues with a flashing glow plug light and going into limp mode a while back, could all this be a DPF problem, that a dPF delete would fix? If So, what Would the cost be and what is the legal position on a DPF delete ,as I thought they were a legsl requirement and needed to pass an MOT?
