Local library might be a good start if you only need a quick look, or like Mike says, ebay, for the Mk1 they're dirt cheap

In Topic: Focus 1.6 Tdci (Dpf) Oil

20 December 2012 - 09:58 AM

I use 5W30 Fully Synthetic oil and always a good brand like Mobil 1 etc or Fords variant. Been told that some of the particles in Part-Synthetic (can't remember the exact name) don't burn off through the burn cycle in the DPF and cause it to clog and block up buggering the whole system (NEW DPF time). In my opinion with these things, it's not worth going for a cheap oil or a Part-Synthetic, spend the bit extra and save the money in the long run when you don't have to have the DPF replaced. :rolleyes:

Cheers
Andy

Turns out it was the additive tank running on virtually empty that was causing the issue, £75 and a refill and reset later and the car is running sweetly again.... Damn you DPF!!!!!!!

Way ahead of you matey, already emailed Car Transplants out Winsford way, and going to try McGuinesses who are near me, there is one on ebay, but he's stating January for delivery, emailed him to confirm £30 plus postage is a lot less than £90 :-)

You'd think so, but no, it's sounded the same the whole time, now have to pay the shocking prices ford charge for a replacement
