Problem with a NISSAN QASHQAI 1.5 L DCi 2011 68k
Vehicle non-start due to excessively blocked DPF, engine management light on, fault code stored for glow plug fault. After further investigation there was also a split air intake pipe found.
The fault was cured by replacing the glow plugs and air intake pipe, removing the DPF and manually cleaning with 2 x Forté DPFOff-Car Cleaner as per instructions, carrying out an extended Forté Advanced Formula Motor Flush adding Forté Diesel Specialist Injector Cleaner and Forté DPF Cleaner &Regenerator into the fuel tank. The vehicle was then taken on an extended road test with the vehicle running well and full power restored.
