As above I'd replace the fuel filter. This happened to me in Perth last year on a hill of all places, the car went in to limp mode so badly that having my nan push the car would've been quicker.

If I was to rev the engine to 3000rpm then it would trigger the limp home mode, and the garage explained that the engine management detected a lack of fuel pressure as a result of a clogged fuel filter which put it in to limp mode.

I noticed when changing a light bulb once that the holder where the bulb plugged in to had two small black wires coming off it that went to no where. Any ideas as to what they were for? If they're the feed for the side lights then that's a good thing. :)

Watch Dog it, I feel that's your only way of getting an engineer sent out to your dealer. At the moment it seems that Ford don't give a flying !Removed!, however if you Watch Dog it then maybe that'll hurt them enough to warrant action.

I cannot believe how this is being handled considering it's a brand new car.

Good news then. My exhaust is squeaky clean, i.e. when I start it I don't get plumes of smoke flowing out of the exhaust, and sometimes it spends quite a lot of time on the motorway so the DPF should be relatively clean too (64,000 miles).

I wonder if it's the heatshield circled in red... It looks like that is at the back nearest the firewall so might be a pig to get to.
