Question about 2009 Jaguar XF
Changes to new car emissions legislation scheduled for 2009, the so-called 'Euro 5' standards, will make particulate filters as
commonplace in diesel car exhausts as catalytic converters are on petrol cars. The goal is an 80% reduction in diesel particulate (soot) emissions.
When the particulate filter warning light illuminatetes it is indicating a partial blockage. Diesel Particulate filters (DPF) or 'traps' catch bits of soot in the exhaust.
As with any filter (think of the bag in your vacuum cleaner) they have to be emptied regularly to maintain performance. For a DPF this process is called 'regeneration'

The DPF is designed to 'Burn off' the soot deposits that accumulate, but in order for this to happen the exhaust has to become really hot. The DPF will fill up if the vehicle does a lot of short trips and the exhaust fails to get hot. The cure is a long hard drive

Whenever this warning or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module has detected a fault, it then disables the system as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)
