Problem with a VAUXHALL ASTRA 1.9L CDTi 2006 120k

Lack of power due to engine running in limp mode, engine management and Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) warning light on.

Diagnostic check carried out showing 72% soot loading in the DPF and fault codes stored P242F DPF restriction due to ash accumulation, P2279 inlet air system leakage, P0380 glow plug heater circuit.

The fault was cured by replacing a split vacuum pipe and removing the DPF to manually clean using Forté DPF Off-Car Cleaner as per instructions, carrying out an extended Forté New Generation Engine Flush and adding Forté Diesel Specialist Injector Cleaner and Forté DPF Cleaner and Regenerator into the fuel tank.

The vehicle was then taken on an extended road test with the vehicle power and performance restored with no further fault codes stored.
