Ad Blue question

Hello I have a 09 TDI. Iím coming back from a trip and says no restart and 400 miles. So I assume I canít shut the vehicle off until I put that blue in it correct? Also is this something I can fill up on the road? Dealer normally does it so not sure where the fill is located. Thank you

Buy DEF at Walmart. If the bottle doesn't have a built in open/close valve at the cap, buy a funnel too. Filler is under the spare tire. Get some rags to mop up any spillage. You don't have to fill it. Just pour a quart or so in to get you home.

Something is wrong

It should have given you MUCH more warning than a no shutoff error at 400 miles remaining. Usually the warnings start at 1600 miles remaining.

Get it checked out (unless you've been ignoring it).

Yeah I got the 1600 one but I drive that much per week normally so comes up fast. Was trying to make it back but realized was going to be too close so decided to do a fill myself. I think they forgot to fill it at last oil change as normally I get 8-1010k between fills.
