Hello Lads,

 

There may be another thread on the forums about this but cannot seem to find it. The "Engine System Fault" reading and red light are on the dash. I got it plugged in a few weeks ago and the mechanic told me that the additive in the DPF resivuoir needs to be filled. I have been told that alot of the Irish cars do not have this, but mine was improted from the UK and does have it. I have been onto a local dealer here and they have quoted me €405 to get the whole lot done. I think this is a bit steep for what is need. Has anyone on here tried doing it of have known anyone that would have done it that might have info on it. I priced the stuff from local Volvo and Peugeot garages and is cheaper than the Ford dealers which is crazy.

Hello Lads,

 

There may be another thread on the forums about this but cannot seem to find it. The "Engine System Fault" reading and red light are on the dash. I got it plugged in a few weeks ago and the mechanic told me that the additive in the DPF resovoir needs to be filled. I have been told that alot of the Irish cars do not have this, but mine was imported from the UK and does have it. I have been onto a local dealer here and they have quoted me €405 to get the whole lot done. I think this is a bit steep for what is needed. Has anyone on here tried doing it or know anyone that would have done it that might have info on it. I priced the stuff from local Volvo and Peugeot garages and is cheaper than the Ford dealers which is crazy. 

Remember the 1.6 is the PSA engine so is a Pug-eot/ Citroen engine

 

If it is going to cost that much, i would personally have the DPF phisically removed, electronically deleted and the engine remapped all at the same time/ in the same place

 

This would make the car faster, more economical, more desirable/ valuable to you/ the next buyer, save you money and of course, make it a lot more reliable (with no DPF to ff-oul up)

Agreed, definately consider removal as its a fraction of the price of renewal. Over here, a removal and remap can be done from about £150 - £350 depending on the remap being more power, or just DPF removal... I suspect you should be able to get the same over there.

not bad, keep an eye on them when the DPF needs replacing, they might give you a good deal!

hah - that's handy! Yeah, they quoted me £100 last year too, so seems to be pretty stable. OMC seem really trustworthy from my experiences, been there a couple of times now and know a couple of guys go there too.

Just paid EUR 122.39 (22 labour, 100.39 for 0.35 liter fluid) plus tax as part of my regular service. Apparently the fluid is needed every 60,000 km but the dealer has no way to measure the remaining amount. That makes this stuff EUR 286.82 per liter!!!!!!! Yes, at a Ford dealer.
