  1. Grantham - Garage Required

    Thank you Mark I appreciate your input on this. And thanks Rory, I had the same thought but albeit close in distance they are 1 1/2 hours drive away. I will update you all.
  2. Grantham - Garage Required

    Thanks Guys To be honest, the soot filter full was on when I collected the car. I ran it for three days (40 mile round trips) and saw loads of black smoke come out and the warning went off. I tried to do a forced regen on my Autel but Volvo isn't supported. It has come on again only today, guy does decent journey's and has covered 400 miles in less than a week. The guy says it literally will not rev up (typical limp mode) and he doesn't want to drive it, so although your suggestion is appreciated SC, I really need to find somewhere close to him. I have said he can bring it back here but he doesn't feel happy to drive it. Just for the record, this isn't a screamer - he is a totally decent lad and I just want to sort it asap for him. Anyone know Linctraders no.?
  3. Grantham - Garage Required

    I am not with the car, so cannot read codes. Soot filter full, which I thinks is Volvo's equivalent term of a DPF filter - car gone into limp mode.
  4. Hi Guys Anyone recommend a good indi garage in Grantham Lincs area please? Got a D5 Volvo with a soot filter (DPF) issue. Thanks

    I’ve got a back up Kia Soul - I think it is alright actually.

    I don’t have a chip on my shoulder but other than that, I would be perfect

    I have had this broom for twenty years, that's a long time Rodney. Well it's two decades I wouldn't go that far but it's a long time. Priceless

    It seems that way mate - struggling to keep at least 12 ready for December - not a bad problem to have.
