Help Finding Eolys Fluid?

06 February 2015 - 07:32 PM

Where can i buy Eolys fluid for a 2009 Focus 1.6?


I rang my local ford dealer, and he quoted me £430 to supply fluid and fit.


But he said thats silly money, and told me to get the fluid myself if i wanted, and they would fit and reset the edu for £97.


I need the Eolys 176. i had a look on ebay but they all seem to only go up to the 2008 focus, and then skip a few years, before being able to use in the new MK3 focus. 


Anyone know where i can find it that fits my car?

Do I Have To Pay For Parts A Mechanic Broke?

05 February 2015 - 12:55 PM

My car is in the garage having a new DPF fitted, and i rang them up as i was supposed to have it back today.


He said he's waiting for a part to come. when they took it off they broke the sensor. (i assume he means pressure sensor).


These aren't cheap, but do i have to pay for it?


It wasn't broken to begin with, and he said "it broke coming off".


i was told it would be £60 to fit the new DPF, can he add extra labour on even though he broke the part?

Ford Focus Eolys Help.

30 December 2014 - 11:41 AM

Got a DPF problem with my 2009 1.6 econetic focus.


Been on the phone to ford, to ask if i have eolys on this car, and they said yes.


Had a look under the car, but can't see the eolys tank, although i haven't jacked it up to see properly yet, just had a quick look. 


I understand that the eolys liquid is dosed into the fuel system every time the fuel flap is closed with a magnet inside the fuel flap. but mine does not have a magnet. 


I have enclosed 2 pics of my fuel flap, in hope that someone can tell me whats going on.


any help is appreciated, as i need to see if i need eolys before i replace the DPF. 


so how is my eolys being dosed?




oops, sorry put the photos on upside down

Engine Malfunction Help.

11 December 2014 - 10:34 PM

I have the "Engine malfunction" message displayed on my 2009 Focus 1.6 diesel econetic. 


Ive run through the "self diagnostic" by holding down the set/reset knob, and at the DTC codes, it says,   


"DTC #Codes



I also have a little diagnostic scanner of my own, and it shows nothing. 


I did however, unplug my scanner when i wasn't supposed to, (the ignition was still on), and I've been told that this could've caused the "engine malfunction" message.


But the "engine malfunction" message came up a week or 2 after i used the scanner, is that possible?


Ive also been told that, by unplugging the battery, it may reset the "engine malfunction" message. Is that advisable? as i will try everything to avoid another trip to the mechanics, and £25 a time on the scanner, its money i don't really have at the moment. 


Confused as to why it won't show up on my scanner though, any help is much appreciated.
