    So I would get another garage to look at it and at least pull the codes .
    Hi, Thanks for your help on this, i opted to trade the car in which i have done today.

    Thanks again

    I understand the op no longer has the car but I thought this might be helpful.

    My car went into limp mode and it was a blocked DPF. Took it to my local garage and he plugged it in and it said DPF full so he done a forced regen. Car was fine. Two days lated limp mode. Ba k to the garage DPF full. He done another forced regen (at no cost) car was fine, a week later, limp mode again took it back and he called a DPF specialist and they said it can get blocked to the point where a regen won't work anymore and a new DPF is required. So anyway he ordered a new one and fitted it and it has been fine since.

    Same issue i was starting to get with my old preface Tourer and the reason i've now got a petrol tourer. Guy told me a new DPF from Vauxhall was nearly 2k so i didnt bother. Was never sure if any of these places that claim to be able to clean them were any good so i cut my losses on it as we lost trust in the car.

    I had numerous forced regens done but the problem was that i didnt do the miles that meant it got hot enough to burn off the crap in the DPF so it gradually got worse.

    I have heard that teraclean is pretty good but never had the balls to actually try it

    I tried UK carbon clean and I might as well of just set fire to the money.its a placebo effect .you cannot get rid of carbon deposit with anything apart from removing and acid dipping .
    A good thing for DPF cleaning is brick acid . remove and clean that way.
