I got a agent from mobile ecu remapping or zaviz to remap my car so i could take the DPF and they have totally wrecked it. car now needs a new ECU.
They did it 14 months ago and been back and forth trying to sort it. the car has never been right since, mpg has dropped to 30mpg, its a 307 1.6hdi, car keeps going into limp mode but shows no error codes. They wont give me a refund either saying I did not service it so its my fault! The car has a full service history!

Stay away!

Your situation is why I do not allow recommend any remapping from mobiles. It has to be done on a rolling road.

If anybody wants a decent tuner in Essex try Redline tuning in Basildon

found after some research that the DTC table had been deleted also when the dpf delete is done on these cars the turbo actuator table needs attention as the dpf removal causes spikes which would explain the erratic turbo performance my car suffers from.

The 1.6 HDI's seem to be a real pain to DPF off.

Did they or will they give you a copy of your original file? That would be a start.

Why even remove the Dpf. THEY DON'T give trouble. Its always sonething else that causes the problems.
If people looked after they're cars to the manufacturers spec there would be no need to use the services of the "tuning" firms.

they dont? I got quoted 500+ for a new DPF, 45 for eloys and labour on top of that when I first got problems.
Thats why I opted for the removal but now wished I had not!
The car is still hosing through fuel and is still unreliable as ever!

I think the point David is trying to make is that DPF, eloys etc is all part of the same system but when owners allow component to deteriorate such as glow plugs or empty eloys tanks, its the filter that then gets blamed.

Having said that my eloys tank wasn't empty and my glow plugs are fine but still the filter got blocked. But it could be argued that DPF's need replacing occasionally as do CAT's?

If I had a 1.6 HDI 110 I wouldn't bother trying to DPF off it. Others may disagree but I'd be reverting back to standard file if I was you but if, as you say, the original file cant be trusted you may need a very good mapper to finish off what the cowboys have started.

There are a few people on here that have DPF off'd their 1.6 HDI's.

I have heard others recommend Steve from the website below. He did a dpf removal remap on my 2.0 hdi and was very helpful in answering the many questions I had.
He also specialises in Peugeots.

It's probably worth sending him an email explaining your problems, maybe he can suggest the best course of action.

What's the mileage and driving history? Like the exhaust and cat, tyres, injectors, EGR valve and countless other things its a limited life part and you just have to accept it as part and parcel of owning a diesel.

I remember people bitching in the past about the cost of a cat. Now the DPF seems to be the flavour of the month.

Yes, Steve specialises in the HDI. That's who I'd go to and if the cowboys have buggered your original he may well be able to help.

Then its down to the driving you do. Best thing to do is as you are getting the car serviced get the garage to do a forced regeneration as part of the service also.
