Unhappy Is there a DPF - DIESEL PARTICULATE FILTER warning light on my 2005 Touareg 3l V6 TDI

Hey guys,

Just a quick question. Having some crappy problems with my 2005 Touareg V6 TDI that I've not long owned. Apart from having to completely rebuild the gearbox which costs thousands, I'm now getting the Emissions Control Light when starting the vehicle and every now and then goes into limp mode (with engine management light). I believe these 2 to be related.

I have a feeling that it might be related to the DPF, but have read that there is a separate light for this on many modern VW's. Can anyone confirm whether or not this is the case on my car?

On a side note, is there anywhere I can get a complete manual for this car!?? It would be super helpful, and no Haynes Manual or anything for it.

Many Thanks for your help! I owe you a virtual beer!

Kind Regards,
Joe Fogerty

Similar thing here bud, emissions light came on which looks like its related to the car being overfilled with oil causing sensors like the MAF to be coated in oil though the crank case ventilation and a duff o2 sensor. Basically you are pi$$ing in the wind without a scan with VCDS (VagCom). If you are anywhere near Norfolk I would be happy to plug it in for you and see what codes are showing, it's not necissarilly the DPF.
