Following on from my earlier thread about my 4501 EGR code, I realised after some research that my car won't regen with an EGR fault, so its been 6 months of driving mostly short journeys with no PDF regen...which I would've thought would cause some issues, except, I don't have any DPF fault codes, the car pulls like a train, knocks out a bit of smoke on full gas and has had consistently sooty tailpipes since I bought it, so now I'm think someone has gutted the DPF.

The DPF canister is still on the car, the right hand side looks OEM, but I can't see the engine side, the gas pressure reads 0 milibars at idle and rarely goes over 10, it counts down to a DPF regen, then nothing happens, exhaust gas temperature never goes past about 280.

Is there any difinitive way of telling if its still present of not?
