      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. Ford Focus 06 1.6 Tdci - Possible Dpf Problem

    Right that makes sense, so what is the better option or do you find it don't make much difference? Just aesthetically
  2. Ford Focus 06 1.6 Tdci - Possible Dpf Problem

    I will have to bear that in mind when calling around to get it booked in. I spoke to a garage today and I'm sure he said they dont actually remove the unit, he said they don't replace it with a pipe, he said it will look as though nothing as been done to it if you look under the car...I was under the impression they remove it and put a pipe in
  3. Ford Focus 06 1.6 Tdci - Possible Dpf Problem

    Right so I've come to the decision of gettig the darn thing removed...I originally booked it into fords and after hearing it will cost 80 quid for a diagnosis and then up to 100 for the fluid etc with no guarantee it will fix te prpblem, it just made sense to get it removed Now, can anyone recommend somewhere to get it done, either in essex or London?

    cheers guys. since he reset the code i think it is out of limp mode so will give that a go later on. its 104,000 miles, has really been looked after though...not sure if it requires a replacement. might have to take it to ford as my local garages say its a ford job.
  6. Hi all, So I've only owned this car for two weeks and up until a few days ago it was driving perfect. The problem I have is the engine light coming on and the error on the computer saying engine system fault (I think it's that) and the engine goes into limp mode. This happens as soon as the ignition is on and the engine light stays on once the engine has started. I purchased an obd reader from ebay which read the fault as being a throttle position sensor problem so took it to the garage, he hooked it up to his expensive reader which requires no laptop and it came up with two faults. One being P242f and the other P2458, both relating to the DPF. He tried to remove the codes and one stayed. Now the car runs fine, no problems what so ever in terms of performance apart from being in limp mode, so now I am just wondering what exactly may need to be done to it. Replacing the DPF is a pricey job I believe and fingers crossed that that's the solution Any thoughts? Thanks Danny
