Problem with Diesel Particulate Filters

Lack of power and engine management light on, fault code stored for diesel particulate filter, suspect particulate filter blocked. 

The fault was cured by using Clean & Protect, 45 minute Advanced Formula Motor Flush adding Oil System Protector to the new oil. DPF Cleaner and Regenerator and Advanced Formula Diesel Treatment added to the fuel tank and a long road test was carried out to allow regeneration of the particulate filter.

Problem with a KIA SORENTO 2.5 CRDi Misfire fault code P1181

KIA SORENTO 2.5 CRDi 2005 50K
Misfire, lack of power and cutting out intermittently. Management light on fault code stored P1181 fuel pressure deviation. 

The fault was caused by the lining/coating on the fuel tank coming away and blocking the fuel pickup filter in the tank.
