Problem SAAB 9-3 1.9 L TiD 2007 160k

Lack of power due to engine running in limp mode, engine management and DPF warning light on. Oil level checked and over maximum due to fuel dilution, suspect DPF heavily blocked.

The fault was cured by removing the DPF to manually clean using Forté DPF Off-Car Cleaner as per instructions, cleaning the intake system with Forté Diesel Intake Cleaner as per instructions and carrying out an extended Forté Advanced Formula Motor Flush and adding Forté Diesel Specialist Injector Cleaner and Forté DPF Cleaner & Regenerator into the fuel tank.

The vehicle was then taken on an extended road test with the vehicle power and performance restored.
