Does anyone know if there is a focus mk2 that is a diesel, but without the pathetic,useless,waste of time shambolic DPF fitted to it? Got some friends who have a 2 door fiat punto wanting a focus diesel. Got 5 grand to spend.
Any advice appreciated. Unless you give me good advice on the DPF :angry: <_<

I do believe if you buy a 1.8 tdci it's not fitted with a dpf because it's the older engine thats why I brought one :) BUT it does have an egr valve instead and every now and again that needs cleaning but it's easy to clean, I am no mechanic and I clean mine myself every year with a tin of spray and twenty minutes of my time.

yeah i got a 1.8tdci and it doesnt have a dpf so thats good lol

ive also been told the 1.6tdci definately has one, the 2.0tdci was an optional add-on when new and the years you want are 2005-2006...as far as i am aware.

going to add that to my list...i thought they replaced the 1.8tdci at around 2007-2008 with the 1.6tdci but you learn something new everyday...everyday is a school day lol

leemaxd- you mention that you clean the egr every year... is it possibly you could do a quick noddy guide on what tools and consumables and how to please? im looking to do this...just to keep the car in tip top and i dont think the car has been properly looked after since out of the show room. thanks. (sorry original poster for hijack)

but back to topic...there is a lenghty discussion on this forum and another i am on about just getting the DPF removed and the car remapped so that the ECU/BSI will ignore that this DPF is missing. has your mate considered this? it will save him money in the long term.

then again, if he is just doing short miles, wouldnt he be better off with a petrol and if longer miles a diesel, as the DPF will regenerate once the speed/temp have been acheived and is held for a few minutes, people just suffer from DPF issues as their car is getting on and they do shorter town miles, so the DPF cannot regen.

Thanks all for your help. The 1.6 would have been great, but like i said with having the DPF and a bill for 1000 at 6 years or so its a no brainer. I will have a look at the tax for the 1.8 tdci and the mpg. They live in the countryside and its 15 miles into Sheffield daily. They are putting 50 a week petrol in the Punto at moment. With the diesel it will be far superior.
Thanks again folks. :rolleyes:

Yes easy enough to do. I did mine last week, using wynns egr cleaner, which i got off e-bay.


The instructions that i got from the supplier was as follows.

Warm up engine, and switch off
Remove pipe from the air-box to the egr valve
Re-start engine, and set rpm to 2000. ( this i did by using my mate on the throttle )
Spray product into egr port in no more than two second intervals

WARNING, if engine revs increase, or deisel knocking occurs, whilst spraying, set engine revs to idle
Continue till all product has been used
Let engine tick over for two minutes, then switch off
Replace hose etc
Re-start engine, and rev 5-10 times, or drive for 5-10 kilometers
DO NOT EXEED 3000rpm, whilst doing this.

As i say i did this to mine last week, and did it with no problem. Blew some crap out though lol

Trust me my friend, you don't want to know. Its another way for the governments and dealers etc to squeeze a hell of a lot more cash out of the drivers. When you consider that the recent volcanic eruption in Iceland emitted the equivalent of chinas emissions over a 20 year period, it makes this cleaner air policy a complete charade.
