Understanding the Citroen Nemo (2008 to 2017) DPF Fault

Having spent over 15 years in the automotive industry, I've encountered my share of Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) issues. The Citroen Nemo, particularly the models from 2008 to 2017, is no exception. Today, let’s explore the common issues, potential causes, and usual symptoms associated with a DPF fault in this vehicle, alongside streamlined solutions including how a service like Vandervan might just be your best route forward.

What is a DPF Fault and Why Does it Occur?

The DPF is crucial for reducing the emission of harmful soot and smoke that diesels are often notorious for. A DPF fault in your Citroen Nemo might manifest due to several reasons:

  • Short Journeys: Not driving long enough at high speeds prevents the DPF from reaching the temperature needed to burn off the accumulated particulate matter.
  • Clogged Filter: Over time, the filter can become clogged with soot, especially if the vehicle often undergoes short trips at low speeds.
  • Sensor Issues: Faulty sensors can fail to correctly report DPF status, leading to inefficient regeneration cycles.
  • Poor Maintenance: Infrequent servicing can lead to higher than usual accumulation of particulates, straining the DPF system excessively.

Symptoms of a DPF Issue

If your Citroen Nemo is experiencing a DPF fault, you might notice several indicators:

  • Reduced Engine Performance: The vehicle might enter a 'limp' mode to protect the engine, noticeably limiting power.
  • Warning Lights: The DPF warning light on your dashboard might illuminate as a direct indicator of the issue.
  • Poor Fuel Economy: When the DPF is not working optimally, fuel consumption can increase as the engine struggles to maintain efficiency.

The Repair Process

Addressing a DPF fault typically involves a few key steps:

  • Diagnostic Assessment: Using specialized tools to determine the exact nature of the fault.
  • Manual Regeneration: If the filter is not extensively damaged, manual regeneration might be conducted to burn off excess particulates.
  • Filter Replacement: In severe cases, the DPF might need to be replaced entirely, which can be quite costly.
  • Sensor Checks and Replacement: Ensuring all related sensors are functioning correctly is crucial for maintaining DPF efficiency post-repair.

Is Selling Your Citroen Nemo a Better Option?

Given the complexity and potential costs associated with repairing a DPF fault, you might wonder if it’s better to simply sell your van. Particularly for a commercial vehicle like the Citroen Nemo, downtime means lost revenue. Vandervan offers a seamless and quick solution – you can receive a free valuation of your van in just 30 seconds, with the option for next day collection from anywhere in the UK. Opting for this could save you from the hassle and expense of repairs, allowing you to invest in a new vehicle with a clean, efficient DPF system right from the start.

If you’re leaning towards selling your Citroen Nemo, especially if facing a troublesome DPF fault, reach out to Vandervan. Let us help you transition smoothly into a van that meets your current needs without the burden of pending mechanical issues.

In summary, while the Citroen Nemo (2008 to 2017) DPF fault can be managed with professional help, evaluating the cost against the benefits of acquiring a newer, more reliable vehicle is worthwhile. Trust your instincts and consider the best option for your situation.

Can I sell my van with no V5 Logbook?

Fortunately, we buy any van even if they do not have a logbook, although it is advantageous if you have a full V5 Logbook, or at least the green New Keeper Slip.

It makes it tougher to sell to our network of 4000+ verified dealers, as we have to wait for the DVLA to process a V62 application (usually 6 weeks), so our valuations reflect the delay in sale and storage costs while rectifying missing V5 logbooks.
