Hi all quick question....do any of you know how much ford would charge to rest the Eloys counter plz..

A family friend booked his 06 focus Tdci in local garage to have Eloys fluid refilled after the light came on....cut a long story short,they filled the system no problem,when they tried to set the counter,they couldn't because the Eloys tank was empty and have told him to take it to Ford,as it will need to be reset by them....?

Be aware that until the tank is filled correctly and the level counter is reset his eolys system is not functioning.

Thanks for the reply Stoney871 ...... the Eloys tank is defo filled to max ...... and i have told him not to drive the car till the counter has been reset... he was just looking as to how much it will cost to rest,as he Disabled and money is tight...the garage charged him £150 to supply and fill the tank,and as proof of filling they give him the receipt and bottles plus the spare fluid.... they thought their software was able to rest it,but it doesn't.....

tell me to foc off if ya want to but:
Since youve had yours gutted and remapped,
Would you not let your relative take yours for a test drive and perhaps save himself future top ups?
As said though none of my business :)

if he aint broke now he will be when it cakes up with carbon creating excessive back pressure leading to cavitation of the turbo and carbon build up in the oil via the EGR that bill will be a chuckle, wouldnt want to have a mouth full of tea at the time anyways.
DPF, new Turbo, oil feed kit and oil sump refurb.
Anyways each to there own devices top respect from local mechanics

You want to tie a rope to his dpf system and let it get ripped off as he drives away.
Trust me, you'll be doing him a big favour ;)

(Joking of course)
