red engine light. It seems my qashqai doesn't have so much power anymore

Hello

I have a Nissan Qashqai 1,5 DCI from 2011.

I recently experienced that even I accelerate it seems the car doesn't get up in speed so fast as before.
I only drove around 30 km, then the red engine light started to light. Constant light.

Has anyone experienced this before?
I know I need it to the shop, it could just be nice to know anybody knows what it is.

Thanks and best regards
Christian

There is a problem with your engine, so it limits power so you can't damage it more. I would advise that you don't drive it.

DPF...diesel particulate filter needs clearing. This should be done at a garage or dealership. Takes a couple of hours and requires an oil change. Lots of info on this on here if you use the search button at the top of the forum.
