VW TRANSPORTER 2.5 TDi 2005 100k
Lack of power; fault due to a blocked Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF).
The fault was cured by removing the DPF and pouring 2 x Advanced Formula Diesel Treatment into the DPF, soaking overnight then rinsing with hot water and drying with compressed air. The vehicle was then treated with Diesel I.M.V. Cleaner as per instructions, Clean & Protect carried out and DPF Cleaner & Regenerator and Advanced Formula Diesel Treatment added into the fuel tank. The vehicle was then taken on an extended road test to allow regeneration of the particulate filter.

Forté's Technical Helpline receives over 300 calls per month. This blog shares solutions for garage workshops on common driveability concerns that can be quickly and effectively treated. The vast majority of those identified are caused by fuel and oil borne contamination formed by natural degradation or via the combustion process. This is a fact of life for internal combustion engines where fossil fuels and oils are used.
