Just some advice if possible......
The Engine management light and the words ENGINE SYSTEMS FAULT has displayed on the dash which has activated the 'limp mode'.
When plugged into a computer it shows as fault code P242F Diesel Particulate Filter Restriction Ash Accumulation.
I have tried Wynn's DPF fluid from halfords to try and clean it and thrashed at 3000 refs up motorway. I was wondering if there are any other tricks/ ideas or a way to clean the filter yourself.
I am not sure if the filter has been changed as I have only had the car for 5 months.
I would love to hear from anyone who has had the same DPF problem and had fixed it themselves. Ford has quoted £1000 + and claim its only Ford that can reset the computer.
An idea I have is to buy a new DPF online and have a mate fit it and get Ford to reset the computer for £114
