when you have had it sorted ie this fault it would be wise to have a forced regen done of the dpf filter prevention it by far a lot cheaper than repairing the bi products or a blocked filter due to other faults on the engine, and very common is glow plugs, low compression, injector issues and leaking seals dumping the compression ratio so low on one cylinder will cause more soot and ecu will prevent the regen because it detects a issue,, and anyone who dont know this should not really be giving anyone advise on it,, its the very basic principle of how these systems work together.
