Problem with a NISSAN QASHQAI 1.5 L DCi 2012 48k

EML on due to a DPF fault and vehicle unable to run due to excessively blocked DPF. Fault code stored P047B exhaust gas pressure sensor range/performance. The fault was caused by a broken pipe between the intercooler and throttle valve preventing regeneration.

The fault was cured by replacing the pipe and removing the DPF to manually clean using Forté DPF Off-Car Cleaner as per instructions, carrying out an oil and filter change and adding Forté DPF Cleaner & Regenerator into the fuel tank. The DPF was then regenerated and reset using diagnostic equipment and taken on an extended road test with the vehicle power and performance restored.
