Just bought a vehicle? Get it checked out (and cleaned up) before any warranty expires.

Just bought a vehicle? This one came with

🔸 3 month warranty
🔸 Vehicle Inspection from a leading UK inspection service.

All sounds good doesn’t it. Sometimes all is not as it seems 👀

⛔ We did NOT proceed with the clean due to issues discovered with our diagnostic consultation.

A BMW 318D (2011 – 103,654 miles) booked in for diagnostics and Engine Carbon Clean

Issues found:

1️⃣ Diagnostic codes showed an exhaust back pressure issue and an injector issue
2️⃣ Live data for the DPF (part of our health check) identified it had not regenerated for 1,273 miles and elevated (yet erratic) backpressure readings. Likely a misbehaving differential pressure sensor.
3️⃣ Coolant temperature checks identified lazy thermostats causing low coolant temperatures (which would disable DPF regeneration). Needs new thermostats (EGR+main).

In addition we spotted some missing clips from the intake system.

We documented the above for the owner and advised he get it back to the garage under warranty.
