Just wondering if any one else has had this problem,and is the car still ok to drive?

thanks in advance.
Probably the DPF. It only has 12000 miles on the clock and isn't being driven anywhere near enough for a modern diesel engine.

Well, back in the dealer’s for the 6th time with the Engine Check light issue. A little different on this occasion as the light extinguished after 2 days indicating that the fault condition had cleared and not been detected again for 3 consecutive ignition cycles.

Different messages from Volvo and the dealer’s service department. Volvo confirmed that they will continue to support EGR faults outside the warranty period until a solution is found. However there is no solution at present and no timescale for resolution. Investigation is continuing.

The dealer announced that a new software patch had been issued within the last 14 days which it was hoped might solve the problem. The patch alters the DPF regeneration process and should reduce the tendency for the O2 sensor to become fouled. They were surprised that Volvo hadn’t mentioned this.

Anyway, the software is updated and we shall see what transpires.

Now here’s a turn up, the dealership phoned today to tell me that the day after I had the patch loaded a new update specifically intended to fix the EGR issues was released.

So, on Thursday I’m taking the car in again for the latest “fix”.
