Elm And Dpf Advice

Recommended Posts

Hi all, well I brimmed my tank last night and this morning I have had the eml light & dpf light come on. I've checked the error code and it's saying that the dpf fluid is low! I have a couple of questions really?

1: would it be ok to continue driving the car like this, if so how long for?

2: should I just get the dpf gutted and get a remap? The car has done currently around 86k and I haven't had any dpf problems until now.

Thanks for the quick reply Lenny, as for the egr blanking I have already done that the other week following your guide, so thumbs up for that. I could probably get the fluid topped up cheap as I have a mate that works at fords but what I'm wondering is what's the life span of the dpf ? Is it likely to be needed to be replaced soon? I take it you have had yours gutted and remapped? What kind of price would I be looking at roughly?

Thanks

had the same issue on mine after the wife filled up-lights came on. decided to get dpf removed, egr mapped out and remap. more than likely the dpf will fail not to far after resulting in even higher costs than remap/removal.

plus you get no more issues in regards to the oil being diluted with diesel when a regen happens...much better for your car internals
