  1. Engine Management Light On!

    Afraid I don't know, just that an 'older' sensor had been fitted at the factory, and a 'newer' one had to be fitted, I was told Ford had their 'techies' looking into it, and found the problem by sheer luck, otherwise I'd be very p**** off by now. It's now been 8 months, it's still fine, and has gone through its own 'regen' a couple of times with no problems (touching wood). The dealer/service department was Rates at Grays, Essex.
  2. How Econimcal Are Kuga's On Fuel Diesel ?

    Was it full of flat spots before fitting the 'box'? I have the 140ps and achieved 49.3 mpg, so I'm happy with that (67 mile mixed) But my average is around the 44mpg.

    Just had a look on their website, seems quite good actually, I was thinking of the cheap end of tat, not at this realistic price for the 'box', keep us posted eh. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  4. How Econimcal Are Kuga's On Fuel Diesel ?

    I'd be vary careful about these things off eBay, good in the short run, but could damage the engine etc over time, only what I've heard. Apart from that, good luck with it. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  5. Diesel Dpf Regen On Mk2 Kuga's

    Hi all, I hope this tip for regenerating the DPF on low mileage Kuga's with the 140ps engine helps towards maintaining a healthy DPF, i say 140ps, as this is the engine I have, may help on others also. When driving, you can usually tell a DPF REGEN is on the way, as the engine heats up rapidly, of course you carry on driving, job done, but what do I do if it is still on regen mode when I get to work/home? you can tell, if the fans under the bonnet are working to keep the engine cool whilst going through this process, instead of just switching off, open the bonnet, get back in and get the revs around the 1700 mark, and hold it around this number, after a certain amount of minutes, the fans shut down, ending the regen naturally, bring revs back to tick over, then switch off. I have found with some vans we use, that they have to be forced to regen by the driver, and with bonnet open, automatically Rev about the 2000 mark, so this tip may work, I'm not a technician. If someone else comes back with a better way, that's great. And my Kuga does get a good blast about once a month, other then that it's local driving. Still loving it.

  6. Shall I Buy A Ecosport

    Yep, I had one, took a hit on finance and now have a Kuga, haven't looked back since, don't even wince on the money I lost, getting the Kuga was worth the pain. I had the EcoSport for 3 months. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app

  8. Ford Kuga - Silverstone Ford Fair

    I'm going, will be on the Ford Focus Owners Club stand, Kuga's first show, but I've attended many times, a good day out, loads of motors, old & new, and plenty of stalls to keep your wallet/pockets empty Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
