Problem with a VW CRAFTER 2.5 TDi 2010 175k
Engine management light and Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) light on, fault code stored for DPF blockage. Unable to regenerate DPF when driven, suspect DPF heavily blocked.
The fault was cured by adding Forté Diesel Specialist Injector Cleaner and Forté DPF Cleaner and Regenerator into the fuel tank, removing the DPF and manually cleaning with Forté DPF Off-Car Cleaner as per instructions. The DPF was then regenerated and reset using diagnostic equipment.
