Diesel Particulate Filter warning light on, suspect diesel particulate filter blocked. After further investigation it was found that the engine had a split turbo pipe. The DPF was also checked on diagnostic machine showing DPF pressure at 350 mbar.
The fault was cured by replacing the turbo pipe, removing the DPF and manually cleaning with 2 x Forté DPF Off-Car Cleaner as per instructions. The DPF pressure was also rechecked showing the DPF pressure at 100 mbar.
Thanks to Chris at Tom Day Ltd in Keynsham, Bristol.
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.
