How much are you paying for your DPF?
New one on ebay for £120ish.
Eolys fluid top up is about £40 a litre plus garage time to do the job.
Is your DPF nacked or just clogged?
Surely a top up and forced regen is cheaper?

I'm just stuck as to what to do I want to do it the cheapest way but also want the car to run ok I was thinking of just getting rid of it for cheap and buy a new car cos I was told the car ain't worth the cost of repair

Hi I am new here and I have a problem with my 08 ford focus mk2 1.8 TDCI zetec ok 2 problems. 

 

Problem number 1 which was the first one i noticed is when I am driving at any speed particularly at 100 kilometers an hour and i gradually take my foot off the gas for a few seconds and it will slow down but when its going from 100 down to 80  the car will chug like its about to cut out  (best word i can think of to describe the issue). This is when I am in 5th gear I have also noticed it happening in 4th gear as well. (and no I'm not just changing down gears).

 

Problem number 2, This problem only occurred today on the way in to work as I put the window down the ABS and the warning light came on some other light also came on, as i put the window up the same lights came on and the radio shut off as if the car was turned off and i had locked it. (which obviously isnt the case when i was going 80kilometers and hour at the time) 

 

and ideas would be greatly appreciated

Ideally you need to start your own thread I can't do this for you on a mobile. Go to the Ford focus section and click new topic / thread in the top right

Happened to me:

 

The heated windscreen can fail on one side either its a simple fuse issue to which there are 2 1 for each side or some cars under the scuttle panel have the electrical ribbon loose which gets rubbed by the wipers when in motion causing it to fail.

 

Power steering hose just behind the radiator and at the join to the pump are prone to leaks from corrosion recommend every 6 months applying grease to the area such as vaseline to prevent this.

The 1.6tdxi up until 2006 has a poor designed intercooler pipe that cracks easily, and the auto gearbox (zf) has a known failure issue. Beyond that they tend to share the characteristics of the focus
