Loss of power and engine going into limp mode, engine management light coming on and glow plug light flashing. Fault code stored P123A turbo actuator fault.
After further investigation the turbo actuator was disconnected revealing that the turbo vanes were sticking due to carbon build-up.
The fault was cured by applying Forté Diesel I.M.V. Cleaner into the intake system as per instructions, adding Forté Diesel Specialist Injector Cleaner and Forté Diesel Turbo Cleaner into the fuel tank and carrying out an extended road test.

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.
