How do you start the regeneration process to clean a clogging diesel particulate filter and can it be done while driving vehicle ? I heard you need a special scan tool to initiate it. The vehicle is a Mercedes Sprinter van with a 4 cylinder turbo.

  • Usually vehicles with a dpf will start the regen process automatically - which people moan about as they have to continue driving for 30 minutes or so, especially annoying if you are just about to pull into your drive and it starts the process... – Solar Mike Jan 12 at 23:26
