      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. 2.0 Tdci Hesitation Problems

    thanks fo rthe reply. i think we are getting confused here. are you talking about the egr valve which is on the back of the engine?? if so i believe that is working fine as i can here it clicking and whining when i switch the engine off which its meant to do according to ford. the fault code im talking about relates to a dpf filter which is located in the exhaust im led to believe , the emssions fluid is pumped into this and the gases are burnt off. the code is saying the dpf filter is blocked.

  3. 2.0 Tdci Hesitation Problems

  4. hi all first post as ive just registered and i need some help. i have a 2004 54 plate cmax 2.0tdci zetec. the car has 112000 miles on the clock and for the 2 years ive had it has been fine.... until it started hesitating which has then got worse up until now when it cut power whilst i was accelerating from some traffic lights!!! when it cut the power i was pressing the pedal and nothing was happening , so i managed to pull over and turn the car off and left it a minute or so, restarted and it ran ok apart from the hesitation. i continued my journey for the next 60 miles ok , when i pulled off the motorway the engine management light came on but the car didn't cut out or anything?? the light stayed on for a day or so and then went off, the hesitation is still there though. i have a friend with a code reader and he scanned the car and it gace one fault code p242f ???? any ideas what this is?? i had the dpf fluid refilled last year so it cant be that?? mpg has dropped to from 54mpg to around 44 mpg. i can hear the egr valve cycling when i turn the car off too?? help!!!!!! cheers steve
