Recommended Posts


I have had the engine management light check vsc and traction control light

leading up to this car was a little sluggish in lower gears.

had diagnostics ascertain the fault to be p2002

can anyone tell me what to do as i have had many differing instructions

i have tried forced regeneration but am told build up too much to force

have cleaned egr valve

ha anyone had this exact issue correctly rectified

have heard of dpf removal but not really sure i want to do that as may sell at some point to IS 250 to rid of diesel issue with dpf

i am in Wolverhampton anyone local who has had the same problem and can point me in right direction would be bonus.

dpf removal

cleaning by jet wash

cleaning by oven heat

and terraclean

so many options not sure which to go for which will definatel solve my problem.

Be very careful with DPF removal. Do plenty of research first.

If what I have read is correct you may find yourself with a MOT failure and a very expensive reinstatement cost.

yes so i read. definitely not doing removal but look for a reputable cleaning company but gain cost vary drastically from a local company who can clean dpf with heat for £110 assuming i remove the dpf for them which will cost £70 from local garage to remove and refit

other companies clean using chemicals and charge £400

but not sure which will give better results in long term
