Problem with a VAUXHALL ASTRA 1.9 CDTi 2007 126k

Lack of power and engine running in limp mode due to blocked Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). The fault was found to be caused by a split vacuum pipe preventing regeneration.

The fault was cured by replacing the split vacuum pipe and removing the DPF to manually clean using Forté DPF Off-Car Cleaner as per instructions, 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 taken on an extended road test with the vehicle power and performance restored.
