Head gasked is ok. Injectors were checked and they all ok.
Do you know if it can be anything else?

Yes. Every time it was going for regeneration it says it's stopped by user. It never complete regeneration.

Probably best and cheapest bet would be taking it to a diesel specialist and let him scan for faults and check the DPF .Also carry out a leak off test at the same time . Some prefer to have the DPF removed .
