    Dpf DIY

    I brought the car back to him today and he scanned it, there are no faults so he wants to keep it for a day or two and drive it himself,I need the car so I'm going to drive it away until I can take off the exhaust and see if that wire mesh had come off,I'm hoping it traveled back to the back...

    If was the case that some of the insulation was left in there and blocked up somewhere along the exhaust would that cause the problem that I'm having,also that mesh ring inside the housing I left that in do you think if that came off would it go back to the back box and block up there?
