Focus C-Max Egr Valve Aaaargh!

7 posts in this topic

My Focus CMAX 2007 1.6 tdci has had £400 pounds spent on it cleaning the egr valve and particulate filter and is now worse than ever and the mechanic has said he has spoke to ford and he reckons he can do no more?

SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP!

hi bud, ive got an 09 focus tdci (similar), anyway i got this code up p042 which indicates egr, so cleared the code with my scanner, it was running as though the turbo wasnt booting in so i put this stuff in tank which i have used for years even on old cars and i swear by it, its called forte you can get for petrol or diesel and put it in when you have 100miles left in tank as it will be stronger, thats what i done only last week and is now running as new again good luck
