Just to add to this...
I have done the dashboard trick and there is a section you click to which shows your DPF "active" and "passive" cycle.
My "active" cycle is showing a reading which means it is regenerating. How can this be??
Is the info on the dashboard trick reliable or is it just what the ecu "thinks" it should be doing?
Anyone on here who had the DPF delete done care to check what their "active" cycle shows please.
As farcas I am concerned it should read zero fuel being added!
name and shame the guy on here so that others are warned.
when i was on seatcupra.net you could not say anything bad/negative towards any of the sponsors on there as your post would get deleted or your account would get deleted. its just how the admin team worked so you never got proper feedback on any of the sponsors on there.
hope you get it all sorted mate.
Im considering doing that but the thing is, the guy has been very attentive and seems to be very thorough.
Its been a nightmare from the start though and ive gotta go back to his house AGAIN tonight for him to delete a DPF sensor (which, again doesnt make sense).
I personally think that he has zero experience with Ford and I get the impression that I was a guinea pig to see if he could do it.
He specialises in Audi and VW you see.
Im just very pee'd off with it now and am doubting everything he's done.
A ceramic dpf is just the same as a cat,
It doesn't have any sensors at all in the exhaust equipet with a ceramic dpf,
They don't have eloys fluid or injectors,
They are not capable of self regeneration,
The only thing they have is passive regeneration meaning the waste gases passing through heat the ceramic,
It has no thermostat to know how hot it is neither,
You can remove a ceramic dpf and the engine won know its gone mate,
There's nothing connected to the computer.
I've had my ceramic dpf done,
If you tell m the trick I'll check mine for you too.
One question on your behalf though;
Who's paying for the diesel on all the trips to his place,
I feel for you mate and realise now how lucky I have been as I traveled 127 miles from home to get mine done and no problem, I hope you get yours sorted this time.
