Problem with a SAAB 9-3 1.9 L CDTi 2004 150k

Lack of power and engine management light (EML) on due to blocked diesel particulate filter (DPF), fault caused by a faulty EGR valve preventing regeneration of DPF.

The fault was cured by fitting a new EGR valve and removing the DPF to manually clean using 2 x Forté DPF Off-Car Cleaner as per instructions. The vehicle was then taken on an extended road test with the vehicle power and performance restored.

Thanks to Michael at Kelly’s Garage in Byker, Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
