Hi Hannah

If you make lots of short trips and little or no motorway driving, then my suggestion would be the FAP (or DPF) needs regenerating and the car can't do it either because of all the short journeys or its run out of eolys. The post below was written for you if its lots of short journeys you make.

Read the post and try the JLM DPF Diesel Particulate Filter Cleaner Fluid and let us know how you get on.
