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.
Thanks to Mark at MTM Autos Servicing & Repairs in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear.
Forté's Technical Helpline receives over 300 calls per month. This blog shares solutions for garage workshops on common driveability concerns that can be quickly and effectively treated. The vast majority of those identified are caused by fuel and oil borne contamination formed by natural degradation or via the combustion process. This is a fact of life for internal combustion engines where fossil fuels and oils are used.
