  1. ok cool, i think thats what im going to do! just thought id do some research into it first!
  2. i forgot to mention my brother has done a diagnostic check with his equipment hence how i know what the faults are, ford would of charged £90
  3. they dont have the correct diagnostic software so they have no idea what the actual fault is, his reply was this happens when there new and if it didnt resolve itself he was going to order a new egr. my only concern is that he replaces it and i get a repeat fault code so im just wondering if it matters whether the egr is ford genuine or not? do you think the fault codes show that it hasnt been fitted properly and the ecu has not learnt the values or the computer cant actually comunicate with itb due to it not being ford genuine?
  4. ok so ive just had my dpf and egr replaced on my car by a local garage and a short time after my engine light comes back on! the fault codes state that the egr valve is remaining closed and the second shows a high control circuit which im assuming means a short or open circuit! does anyone know if this has anything to do with the egr not being a ford genuine part or is it as simple as checking the wires are all connected? or has anyone had this problem before and knows what to do? the engine light went off for a few hours last night but has come back on again today so its intermittent at the moment. any advice would be greatly appreciated as ive already paid 1100 for these jobs. mike
  5. Focus 1.6 Tdci 2008 Dpf Malfunction

    Brilliant thanks for the advice gurcayy and sal! my local garage has said they can get the parts for half the price the ford garage qouted and the labour will be a lot cheaper so thinking of getting it replaced! just one more question, does anyone know how long exactly the dpf is meant to last on my model car?
  6. Hello everyone, Im new to this and have a few issues with my focus style 2008 1.6 tdci. Basically my dpf needs replacing along with my epg, but ive only done 75k, is this normal? Also is it illegal to have my dpf bypassed as replacing it along with my epg is going to cost a huge amount of money like £1200-1300, thats not including vat! Does anyone have any advice on what to do? Thankyou
