Qashqai Model: Mk.1 Qashqai Facelift - J10b (2010–2013)

I'm hoping someone can help.
I have a Qashqai 1.6 DCI and on the dashboard I'm seeing stop start fault and the engine light. Cruise control and speed limiter no longer work. There is also a dip in power around 2000 RPM. Other than that it drives ok.
These are the fault codes from my local garage.

P2002 - diesel particulate filter below efficiency threshold
P1525 - ASCD function
1130H/4400 - refer to OEM manual
P253F - engine oil deteriorated

Oil had been changed with no effect.

Regen failed and they believe a new DPF is required and will cost big money.
I need a second opinion and my own research suggest possibly a fault with the EGR or DPF pressure sensor.
Any help or insight would be great thanks

See if you have gasses passing through this mate

Won't cost anything and shouldn't take long. I'm having a similar issue but the cars juddering and ABS light flashing on top of other errors so I think kine "may" be an ABS sensor. It's seems a so much harder to diagnose a Nissan than a BMW lol. Literally a £20 K+DCAN cable and you can have dealership diagnostic software, coding and firmware upgrading haha.

If DPF is in fact blocked mate, on the BMW forums you could do try a forced regen which to forum members basically meant driving, clearing the fault codes and then requesting a regen straight away. This was of course assuming the preliminary components for a regen where working (thermostats, glow plugs)

But again, I don't think you can do any of that on a Nissan without some expensive diagnostic equipment it's mad.

Another route, assuming your DPF is blocked is to have it professionally cleaned like:
