Engine System Failure!!
Posted 02 November 2012 - 03:19 PM
Iv got a 57 plate focus mk2 1.6 tdci (110) climate.
I bought the car 3 weeks ago. It's in mint condition and has been serviced every 10000 miles. It's done 100000 miles.
I was driving home from work yesterday and about 5 minutes after leaving the car beeped and the little red led and engine light came on with the message engine system failure:( the car went into limp mode and hasn't got any power.
The car seems fine! No smoke, juddering or anything else apart from that warning and limp mode.
Any ideas what this could be?

P2458 DPF regen duration above max threshold.
P242F DPF restriction, ash accumulation above max threshold.
V = stage IV + DPF
REQ, DPF cleaner
REQ, DPF Regeneration static
Pos, E.G Temp reset
Pos, DPF value reset
Pos, DPF differential pressure sensor value reset.

Can this be done by an independ garage?
A DPF replacement from Ford will cost you a lot of money there are lots of threads on here about the DPF

Does your oil level raise? If there is a problem within the particulates filter - it definelty will. The first thing to do is to go to someone who has IDS (the original diagnostics software) and ask him to check the differential pressure sensors. If they're ok, ask him to run the manual DPF cleaning procedure. This may help a bit. There is one more solution to try before DPF replacement - remove it from the car and wash its internals VERY well with pressure washer (a real one with very high pressure and steam, not just hot water) and degreaser.
And the last solution is to remove it completely and remap the ECU not to seek for differential pressure

you will still get problems is you remap the DPF out and still leave the DPF fitted. you will have to remove the DPF and map it at the same time, carnt do one before the other

Ford have said to have the DPF replaced will cost in the region of £1000!! A regeneration will not work.
I have found a place close to me that removed them and re mapps the engine for around £300.
It seems like a no brainier but will I be prosecuted if I have it removed? Is it likely to cause it to fail the mot

Maybe it is, but I live in Bulgaria where nobody cares
