2010 opel insignia sports tourer Sign In

Hello, sorry if i have any typos or something, english is not my main language. I have a 2010 opel insignia sports tourer 2.0 118kw diesel engine. I have issue, when trying to start moving from parking spot or somewhere without pressing gas, the car wants to stall (it hasnt never been a issue, started doing it about a month or 2 ago) when reversing without pressing gas, then it stalls. But for example, driving on the highway, i dont see any problems. Acceleration is great, doesnt have any issues. I usually drive every morning around 35km to work (around 20min drive) with rpm around 2200-2300 and that should be enough to clean the dpf while driving. I asked my brother what could be the issue, since dpf should get cleaned by driving on the highway. He told me that it could be something about fuel injectors or fuel pump and told me to contact a mechanic who can do diagnostics. I decided to ask it here first.

Oh forgot to add, when starting up the engine. Cold or warm, there are no issues. Works like a charm

Your English is fine.
It's my/our issue this site is US based so this car isn't sold here limits info for us. However just learned some on this "DPF" thing is a particulate filter that does like to be run long and harder to help them stay clean from excessive particulate matter.
Diesels are not my specialty are in widespread use more popular for very heavy duty use equipment, trucks where I happen to be gets expectedly cold in Winter was historically a serious problem with them just starting isn't the case.

My own search does suggest give it a hard run, longer run.
Your call but a mechanic in person both familiar with this particular vehicle and diesels would be of help if a long run alone doesn't work for you for this issue.
Most all vehicles will have computer controls and monitor a lot of items so perhaps a "code reading" would help, it sure wouldn't hurt.
Ask the mechanic if you do that if additives for seasonal diesel use is already in fuel you get or YOU are supposed to do something about it would be a local issue for you not some universal thing for that fuel that I know of,

As Tom said, don't have the vehicle here and we don't see a lot of diesels.

That being said, if this car has a Mass Air Flow sensor, it would be highly suspect.
