  1. Hi I'm looking at changing the oil every other 6 months so I would do it every 12 months with out filter change and then the garage every 12 months with filter change. Ie garage would do it in December and I would do it in June. Do oil is done every 6 months What oil capacity is it for a 1.6 2015 diesel econetic I think it's just under 4l oil. And has anyone used the suction pump from the dip stick to pull the old oil out?
  2. OK so just out of the garage finally as I have been putting it off. Dpf was over 50% blocked. So they as soaked the dpf on some sort of cleaner. Forced regen and all sorted. Only a little black smoke when red lining at garage but they said still loose but in the system. Hopefully that's it and sorted apart from the garage told me I should of stuck with my toyota as dpfs are not ford's strong point and they see alot of them
  3. OK cool I will give that a go. I have done it a few times on slip road upto motorway but only for a few seconds. Will do for a bit longer
  4. OK just googled change fuel filter. If that needs doing off to the local garage it goes lol. I can cope with the air filter lol
  5. Yep but how long for 5 mins at high revs or 20 ect. Sent from my ELE-L29 using Tapatalk
  6. Air filter has been done Fuel filter no.... Is it a big job to do on a diesel?
  7. Hi I'm trying to clear soot out of my car due to black smoke. I have added cleaner to the system but I was also looking at giving it do beens italian tune on the motorway. I know the engine needs to be hot but has anyone done this and what revs should I drive at and for how long?
  8. So I only really use the car for commuting to work 15miles there 15 back 13 of that motorway 2 ring road. And 5am so the dpf seems to be fine with that. I very rarely hear it going and if I notice it still going before I get to work I go another junction till its finished can't hear the fan going and the start stop works again. I have always had diesel cars and never had a problem like this
  9. OK so that dint work... After 2 weeks of not much smoke. Filled car up with diesel on Saturday as I was down to 90miles left. And the car is smoking again. I did add another bottle of wynns to the fuel whilst filling up as well. Would water in the diesel couse a car to smoke? I can't make heads or tails of this.. 😓
  10. For the dash cam I used the rear wiper fuse to piggy back off. Autostart stop is not affected. Or are you looking to have the dash cam on 24/7?
  11. Hi no I never put cheap stuff in. I fill up a shell or BP
  12. OK so went to my local garage. They said to try adding this to half a tank of diesel and to drive it like you just stole the car. So I did and its been 2 days and no black smoke even when flooring it. I used wynns diesel extreme cleaner I will add another bottle to a full tank when I fill up next but all is good so far. Fingers crossed. £11.99 fix oh and prob now only got 30mpg now I have stollen my own car. But has been fun
  13. Thanks for replying, I am going to book it into a garage to get sorted as the smoke was bad today as I was joining the motorway, I had someone flashing me "with there head lights lol" Just hope it's not leaking injectors or turbo and its just a 9.99 plastic pipe.
  14. Hi its a diesel I have changed the air filter. I think it's more when under load its happening
  15. Hi all, please no horror stories I have been made redundant and very short on money. So I have a ford fiesta 2015 econetic 1.6 And the problem I have Is I black smoke on acceleration I don’t see it as it happens unless I put my foot right down And pretty much red line it and then everyone sees it, I don’t normally do this by the way, But every week when I clean the car I have black soot on the bottom part of the bumper, I have had the car carbon cleaned last year and he ran his diagnostics and he said egr was good turbo was working nicely Dpf was regening nicely a
