Problem with a VOLVO C30 1.6L D 2010 69k

Lack of power and EML on due to blocked Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF).
Diagnostic check carried out showing 80% soot loading in the DPF.

The fault was cured by removing the DPF to manually clean using 2 x Forté DPF Off-Car Cleaner as per instructions, and adding Forté Diesel Specialist Injector Cleaner and 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.
