I'm new here and this is my 2nd post, my first was to say hi in the introduction area.
Well I have some problems and having had a good look round the site I have no idea what I'm going to do so I thought I would ask the forum for some advice sorry but it’s a long one.
I have a 2006 1.6tdci zetec climate with 96k and a sketchy service history, I bought the car in May With 88k and had a full service including oil and fuel filters, timing belt, water pump, fan belt. All was great until about 1month ago when I got a red light (no Symbol) and a message saying engine systems fault on the dash, I took it to my friends garage and he said I need to do a regeneration on the dpf so 2 bottles of dpf cleaner into the tank and a nice 70min drive along the local express way and home again in 4th at 3500rpm.
That seemed to do the trick but it has done it a couple of times so process was repeated, and again seemed ok.
Engine codes that came up were always the same
Then a whooshing noise from the front engine area appeared last week so fords had it (friends garage closed as on holiday), they relived me of £300 and said it was an intercooler pipe split and my dpf was blocked.
£1300 for a new dpf from fords so I said no thanks. Unofficially a mechanic said that a local garage would do a dpf removal and ecu delete. I went to the said garage where he said he could do it but it is probably a worn turbo and its on its way out he then removed the rhs (as you look at the engine) pipe from the turbo and wiped oil out he said that the turbo is passing oil and is worn and could go at any time so it would be better to replace turbo and do dpf removal and ecu delete all in one for £1200.
I have since been told turbos pass oil anyway ???
Is the turbo going or on its way out??
I have read a lot about carbon build up injectors leaking turbo replacements so I'm stuck I have got someone round next week ( http://www.westcoast...pf-removal/c90w ) to do the dpf while he is doing that what can I do at the same time to help my car, and wallet in the future. he is costing me £300 for the removal and ecu delete so I dont have much cash left if I can do something to prevent anything else it has to help me.
I do a high milage so will be replacing the oil every 5k miles already done it once.
Sorry its so long but any help and advice is truly appreciated I like the focus and dont really want to sell it and buy something else more so because I can’t afford to.
