In Topic: Help Finding Eolys Fluid?

06 February 2015 - 08:50 PM

why i asked as from 2008/9 a different dpf was fitted not requiring the fluid, so you car must one of the last ones requiring it, so the fluid up to 2008 is what you need.

holds 1.8 litres when empty

well its a 2009 1.6 econetic.  it definitely has eolys. its on the service schedule and i also this week replaced my DPF, and its the one that needs eolys. i only know this as i phoned ford before ordering it off ebay.  i believe the dpf you mentioned is a ceramic one? that doesn't need the eolys?


when i had the DPF replaced this week, the mechanic also said the eolys is empty, as it came up on his machine.


I'm pretty sure its the 176 I'm after.


thanks for the info though. i haven't been able to find out how much i needed.

was supposed to have the car back today, and i gave the garage a call, and they said they are waiting for a sensor to come from parts, i assume its the pressure sensor.


He said it broke coming off. 


i hope he doesn't think I'm paying for that.

Yeah, i thought that when he quoted me. i was expecting something around £100-£150.


i usually do short trips,


so i decided that every wednesday on my day off, ill be doing a 40 minute journey on the motorway. 20 minutes out, and then 20 back. hoping that should be sufficient to regen it once a week.

Just thought id update everyone on my situation, as i posted the original question about the DPF. 


After being told it could cost £1000+ to replace the DPF, i scouted around, and decided to replace the DPF.


It hasn't cost me £1000. its cost me £260.



I had a new part off of ebay for £189 + £10 delivery, and i dropped it off this morning to be fitted by a local garage, and he's charging me £60 to fit and reset the learned values of the DPF.



I did think about getting it removed, but with the new MOT rules, i didn't really want to do that, and telling the insurance company about a remap would probably push my premium up. 


the downside is i have to run it up the motorway for 20 mins a week or so.
