Problem first appeared at 53k miles and Nissan refused to consider it was a warranty issue them & I've been fighting them for over a year and 5 trips into the the garage. They nowe say car's out of warranty so nothing they'll do.

Won't be buying another one - shame at it's a good vehicle to drive!
can you do away with the filter, bit like doing away with the cat

DPFs seem to cause as much trouble as EGRs do

Is this the fault that makes the engine rev out of control at max revs until it blows and there is nothing you can do to stop it.

I thought that was something to do with the injectors
It happened to a customer of mine when he was towing a tri axle cattle truck with a load of beef cows

Ummmm, I don't know what causes it but I've seen it twice on the motorway. Not a nice thing to happen.

Its normally the turbo's oil seals that fail which causes the running away problem. The engine starts feeding itself on its own sump oil ingested through leaking oil seals on the compressor side.
Seen this happen on a V8 Scania truck engine once (along with a few 1.9 Dci Renault engines).
All you can do is put the vehicle in the highest gear possible and try to stall the engine by driving away....(or stuff a pillow in the air inlet pipe to the blower)
