      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      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. HI I have had issues with the DPF on my Ford Focus for the past few weeks. I was driving down the A46 and it started to lose power and judder I puller over turned the ignition off and on again and it was fine, The greenflag engineer suggested the temperature sensor was at fault and cutting the power when the engine gets too hot as it was a hot day. So next I took it to Ford in Harrow (Blackaby and Pearce) and they found the Temperature sensor was actually unplugged! so they re-connected it and could not find a fault. So its still been juddering and losing power in low gear and when I am going over 70m.p.h. Incidentally I think Blackaby and Pearce do not know what they are doing as they are a very small dealer. So it took it to my local garage who ran a diagnostic computer on it and came up with following errors: P242F Diesel Particular Filter Restriction P120F Fuel Pressure Regulator Excessive Variation Fuel Temperature Sensor A Circuit High Input P0380 Glowplug Control Circuit P2452 Particulate Matter Trap Differential Pressure Sensor Circuit They suggested all the above errors point to the dpf which I think is wrong as theres clearly a need for a new Fuel Temp Sensor or a fault So they put two bottles of DPF cleaner into half a tank of fuel which they said would be fine. Then I drove from Harrow in North London to Melton Mowbray just north of Leicester and started losing power in the low gears. I think this maybe due to the dpf cleaner/regnerator additive taking affect Friday night 20th I lost loads of power and the engine systems fault light came on. It cleared after turning the ignition off and starting up again. My friend suggested its an ECU fault as its if a computer style reboot fixes it. Also Saturday morning I still had the same issue. Then in the afternoon the car opened all the electric windows by itself and the alarm kept going off every 5 minutes which was very strange. Any suggestions are welcome, I am taking the car to Ford yet again and will show them this mini essay I have compiled. Regards Sas Parmar.
