Image of Automatically regenerated DPF
The PM accumulated on the filter is burned by exhaust gas to regenerate the filter.
Continuous regeneration (Intervention of Driver is not needed.)
The exhaust gas becomes hot during high-speed driving, and PM is continuously burned and removed.
Automatic regeneration (Intervention of Driver is not needed.)
The exhaust gas does not get hot enough for continuous regeneration during driving on urban streets, so the engine raises the temperature of exhaust gas to allow automatic regeneration.
The DPF indicator flickers when the exhaust gas is not hot enough for automatic regeneration due to a traffic jam, etc. Stop the vehicle at a safe place, and press the DPF Cleaning Switch continuously to start manual regeneration of the filter.
* Restrictions may be imposed when driving is continued while the DPF indicator flickers.
