    Last week the spanner sign went orange and now I've got check emissions warning message on my dashboard, my van is traffic diesel sport model 2013 with 70000 miles and regular serviced , any information much appreciated.. plus it seems to drive normally, it's not in limp mode.
    Cheers

    This sort of thing often happens if you've been doing short runs of late and the DPF is getting a little unhappy. You may find a good run will clear the fault on its own.

    I'd certainly give it a try but I've no personal experience of any DPF tank additive....I do however rate Forte products if they do one.
