2011 focus 1.6 tdci -Dpf question

Recommended Posts

Hi, I've got a 2011 focus tdci 1.6 dpf. it's the 2008 to 2010 model but on a 11plate  late reg.

I'm on 82k miles and just wondered do I need to do anything about the dpf I.e service it etc or should it last a while? I've just read a lot about them only lasting til 70k or so?

thanks

You'll have the later coated DPF at that age.  The cDPF is much more efficient and reliable than the older additive type DPF which was fitted up until around 2009.  They had a replacement interval of 75k but the cDPF has no suggested interval at all, it should last the life of the vehicle.  

If you've owned the car a while and had no problems then you can largely forget about it.  If you've just bought it, just be aware that compound short journeys can cause a problem.
