Sportage 2006 CRD DPF cleaning
I keep getting the DPF warning light up, and have been told that either the Deisel Particulate Filter has died or it's not going into a cleaning cycle anymore.
I'm praying the filters OK as a new one is over a grand (£1000), but kia did some work a while ago and forced the system into a cleaning cycle, why, none knows, but it seemed to help????
Does anyone know how to get the car to start a cleaning cycle manually, or will some of the shop bought cleaning additives work, or will they screw up the engine/cat/exhaust?????
By the way the light flashes, then later on stays on, but after a day goes out??????
Any help will be appreciated!!!!
