Engine not running due to excessively blocked Diesel Particulate Filter. EML on and fault codes stored for glow plugs and EGR valve faults.
The fault was cured by fitting new glow plugs and a EGR valve, removing the DPF and manually cleaning with Forté DPF Off-Car Cleaner as per instructions, carrying out an extended Forté Advanced Formula Motor Flush and adding Forté DPF Cleaner & Regenerator into the fuel tank. The vehicle was then taken on an extended road test with the vehicle performance restored.
Thanks to Stuart at New Road Garage in Thornley, Durham.
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.
