  • Poor acceleration
  • Cherry red hot catalytic converter
  • Possible spark knock (detonation / pre-ignition)
  • The engine oil will exhibit dilution from the ECUs attempts to increase engine temperature.

When the ECU determines the necessity to regenerate the DPF, the service life of the oil be shortened significantly
