Hi all,

I'm looking for a bit of advice, I have a 2009 V50 2.0. Whilst driving it the other day it went into limp mode (DPF full showing on dash) and shortly after died altogether. I had the car recovered to the garage who have replaced the DPF and the Cat Converter (hole found in the flexible metal section). Sadly the car still fails to run.

The garage has reported the car starts runs for a few seconds then sputters and dies. Garage has also looked at the manifold, etc and said the fuel filter was filthy and the injectors have a lot of oil in them.

Before I have them pull and test all the injectors I was hoping you guys might have some thoughts?

Oil in injectors?
I'm struggling to imagine how that is even possible so have the garage given an explanation?

Have they bled the system correctly?
How could I go through life without firing an AK47?
