Problem with a VOLKSWAGEN POLO 1.4L TDi 2008 166k


Lack of power due to engine running in limp mode, engine management and Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) warning light on.

Fault code stored for DPF blockage, unable to carry out regeneration of DPF due to excessive soot loading.

The fault was cured by removing the DPF to manually clean using Forté DPF Off-Car Cleaner as per instructions, carrying out an oil & filter change and adding Forté Diesel Specialist Injector Cleaner, Forté Advanced Formula Diesel Treatment, Forté DPF Cleaner & Regenerator and Forté Diesel Turbo Cleaner into the fuel tank.

The vehicle was then taken on an extended road test with the engine power and performance was restored.
