    Hi all,

    Seem to have a very intermittent hesitation or possible misfire when under light load.

    Seems to be when I’m cruising at 30/40 ish, it’ll sometimes jerk as if I’m lifting my foot off the accelerator.

    If I accelerate hard, it seems to disappear.

    The DPF light came on the other day, so I done a forced regen by driving at high revs for a while and that’s gone now - could that not have completely cleared possibly and cause these issues?

    Got no other lights or errors showing.

    Have you had the EGR inspected or cleaned? They can often give those sort of symptoms when they become sooted up.

    I have no idea what tools you own, or your level of DIY skill, but people are able to do this themselves so maybe look around for a guide and get an idea of what you will need (Tools/cleaning equipment/etc) and see if you think you can take it on.
    Good luck if you do give it a go.

    I consider myself fairly savvy! Do most of my own stuff anyway, just watched a video and looks pretty simple.

    Cheers! :)
