Engine Malfunction & Esp Light

Hope someone can shed some light on this problem... My 57 plate Smax has cut out 4 times today with the engine malfunction and esp light coming on. I had read alot about the DPF needing to regenerate itself and bought some Wynns DPF cleaner a few weeks back and had no real problems with it, until today where it cut out four times but luckily I was on a pretty slow road every time.

It's pretty obvious that others have had the same problem as i've read alot about it, just need an answer now as to what is the best plan of action do i keep putting cleaner in and flushing the filter or would it need replacing seeing as it's done 78k miles.

Any help and advice greatly appreciated, Thanks Richard.

A generic code reader may not report all the fault codes - you need to get it to Ford (or a Ford specialist) and connected to the IDS system for a fault diagnosis.

I have done the onboard diagnostics test and had the following dtc # C14000 which is the traction control valve rf circuit failure, would this cause the car to stop and go into limp mode?

Thanks for the reply gregers, do you find it happens in similar circumstances? With mine it seems to be when i accelerate on a bend. Any idea what the best solution is to fix this? Thanks
