Problem with a BMW X3 2.0 L TD 2005 121k

No power over 30 mph and EML on, fault codes stored for faulty glow plugs, throttle body and DPF blockage, new DPF only fitted the month previously.

The fault was cured by replacing the glow plugs and throttle body, removing the inlet manifold/swirl flaps and manually cleaning with Forté Diesel Intake Cleaner. The DPF was then removed and manually cleaned with 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 taken on an extended road test with the vehicle power and performance restored.
