Problem with a VW TRANSPORTER TDi 2010

Lack of power due to engine running in limp mode and Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) warning light on. Fault code stored for DPF blockage. Vehicle taken to dealers previously for DPF regeneration and fault returned.

The fault was cured by removing the DPF to manually clean using 2 x Forté DPF Off-Car Cleaner as per instructions, carrying out an extended Forté New Generation Engine Flush and adding Forté Diesel Specialist Injector Cleaner and Forté DPF Cleaner and Regenerator into the fuel tank.

The vehicle was then returned to the dealer for the DPF to be reset. The dealer also stated that the DPF was in ‘as new’ condition and very clean according to the DPF readings taken.
