DPF’s & Hilux

Recommended Posts

Hi guys be nice I’m new here.  Currently the proud owner of a 2009 Prado as the family bus, but thinking of getting a Hilux for myself, currently looking at this:  https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2014-Toyota-Hilux-SR5-Manual-4x4-MY14-Double-Cab/OAG-AD-16092487

just curious to know if it has a DPF, if so what year did they start fitting DPF’s to the D4D?

 

cheers.

Hi there welcome,

Normally cars that were built around 2009 onwards

are fitted with DPF. But you can check underneath if it has one.

Normally it is after the catalytic converter, there you see it.

Good luck

Noel

Hey Dom,

In Aus Hilux's only have DPF's on the 1GD-FTV (2.8) or 2GD-FTV (2.4) engines released here from 2015.

Lots of troubles with DPF's but equally lots of work has been done with them so its both a good & bad thing…….

DPFs are the norm now for diesels to meets euro 5 emissions, both light and heavy vehicles, some use DPF, some use Adblue.

If you potter around the suburbs all day long, do a lot of short trips with the engine barely getting up to operating temp, expect trouble.

They NEED to be able to do a REGEN, BURN OFF,

What ever make the vehicle is do your research as to what is required for that particular vehicle to perform the above
