Problem with a SAAB 9-3 1.9L TiD 2006

Problem with a SAAB 9-3 1.9L TiD 2006 20K

Lack of power and engine management light on. Fault code stored for Diesel Particular Filter, suspect particulate filter blocked due to very low mileage and stop/start driving. Extended road test carried out to allow regeneration of the DPF, fault not cured.

The fault was cured by using Clean and Protect, 45 minute Advanced Formula Motor Flush adding Oil System Protector to the new oil and 2 x Advanced Formula Diesel Treatment to the fuel tank to restore combustion efficiency and exhaust gas temperature. An extended road test was then carried out to initiate regeneration of the particulate filter.
