Lack of power, engine management light, DPF and glow plug lights on, fault code stored for diesel particulate filter soot content too high. DPF checked filter soot loading at 98%, and unable to carry out a forced regeneration.
The fault was cured by using Forté Clean & Protect, 45-minute Forté New Generation Engine Flush adding Forté Oil System Protector to the new oil and Forté DPF Cleaner and Regenerator and Forté Diesel Specialist Injector Cleaner
added to the fuel tank. The car was then taken for
a 1-hour road test at 60 mph 3,000 rpm to allow
regeneration of the particulate filter. After the road
test the DPF soot loading was reduced to 27%. The
owner reported the car had never driven so well.
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.
