DPF help required

Recommended Posts

Hi all, i have a 2010 kuga 2.0l diesel with 134k on the clock, ive had the dpf light coming on for a while now, its coding p002, i have changed the sensor, checked the rubber pipes under the car going onto the dpf,  but they are fine and dont look that old tbh, the dpf is not blocked,   the car loses no power when the eml light comes on, it still drives as it should,  but ive noticed on hard exceleration there seems to be a whisle sound, sort of like an air leak, but checked all the hoses etc.  could someone point me in the right direction as to why the code keeps popping up. thanks in advance

Hose leaks are very hard to find, a tip,is to use soupy water on the hoses, leaks show as bubbles.

If you can hear an air leak i reckon the dpf is blocked solid. Had a customer do that before the air leak noise was exhaust gases trying to escape and gaps it could where the dpf is blocked. Any diesel car with 134k on the clock will have a blocked dpf by now as most poodle round town. Egr fault will be your orignal fault which accelerates dpf blockage. 
hope this helps.

I would check if you have a fuel vapouriser on your dpf. Known to block up and stop regens. Sure your Kuga will have one. 

This is an example of what to look for on your car ( but only an example off a transit for visualisation. )
