    Engine oil increase!

    Halo there, I'm reposting my problem! I drive 1T3 Touran 2010, 2.0 TDI 103 KW, engine code CFHC (130K km). I do a lot city driving so DPF regen happends very often, every 150km. But my concerne is the oil level, it's on the top of a plastic bulk dipstick! Is that normal or do I have to do somethink. Thanks.

    Thanks for replay, I have to empty the engine from oil and measure the quantity! Is there any tolerance by having more than 4.3 litres of oil in the engine? I drove 3500km in 4 months from last oil change and it was the first time I did it since I bought it last year. I'll change the oil anyway but what next!? I drive mostly on city like 20km a day!

    Sometimes even the software is to blame and a software update can fix .

    So very often DPF regen shouldn't happen like every 150-200km city drive, that's abnormal?! Two weeks ago I traveled 600km and I didn't even seen iddle high nowhere, but as soon as I drive around town regen happends every week than I drive about 20km highway and iddle drops back, didnt have DPF light from february! Thanks.

    First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

    Your car spec says 0, only what I've added from this post.

    You can check the soot content of the DPF with VAG-COM\VCDS and how many times its done a regen.

    I'm very sorry being so roude and didn't introduce myself! I'm Arian from Kosovo and I'm 41. I work in public television as a TV director. I'm maried and have two kids. Since last november I become a owner of a VW Touran and I like it a lot, but since this think with DPF regen start bothering me and I didn't had experience at all with diesel engines especialy when a realised that oil level increased. I dont want to remove DPF! I just want's to find a way so that can manage a situation. This forum seams to me very serios and I would like to be a part of it as long as I drive Touran and I plan to do it a lot! Thanks again for yours guidnes.

    This is becoming a major issue with Common Rail injectors where the fuel is not of a suitable quality, it causes wear to the injectors which do not atomise the fuel sufficiently so unburt fuel gets into the oil and causes the DPF to become clogged with soot. It is extremely expensive to fix and I would not recommend the use of Common Rail injector engines where the fuel quality can be poor.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    This makes sense, because in our country (Kosovo) the fuel quality is so poor, there are Shell gas stacions around here, maybe start using "high quality" diesel fuel! Anyway I visit a mechanic today and I emptied engine from oil and there where 5.2L of hot oil! He said is OK!!! I gues I have to live with that! Thank you so much for replay Crasher.
