Bought a pre-registered Focus 1.6 tdci 110 on a 57 plate from 'new'. Lots of talk with the dealer about DPFs but at my predicted mileage at the time decided to go with it anyway. Just had a 37.5K/3yr service where the DPF fluid is supposed to be topped up. Car siad it needed the service at 35.5K so I had it don then. Anyway, turns out it doesn't have a DPF :-) Apparently at that time a few engine variants didn't get one. Maybe then I have the last of a few like that? :-)

Maybe make the car worth a little more when I come to sell it...

Its a nightmare even trying to find out if you've got one mate......i asked the ford mechanics to check for me when i had my CAM belt & water pump changed and they confirmed that i definatly didnt have one..was so releived. I was having issues with the car and the symptoms were similer to a failing DPF. In the end it tunred out to be the EGR valve..so i got a new one put in and everything is fine now.

What problems are you having? have you investigated the EGR?

Yup. Only way I found out was being told they tried to top up the DPF oil and there was nowhere to do it. Doh!

i normally just looked under the rear of the car around the fuel tank to see if there was a smaller tank. that works aslong the DPF are the ones that require the EOYLS Fluid.

anyways heres a link regarding the DPF and MOT that might make for interesting reading:
