  1. 2.0tdci eml and dpf issues

  2. 2.0tdci eml and dpf issues

  3. Hi. I'm after a little help. 3 weeks ago we bought the mondeo. It had just been serviced and had new egr valve. About a week later we had the service oil indicator come on every time the car was started, and as it had only just been done I did the manual reset and that was that. 2 days later the same message came up then engine malfunction came on and the car went into limp mode. I have a bluepoint obd reader and it said P010f mass or volume air sensor. Cleared that turned car off then on and done. The service oil light keeps coming on no matter what I do with the reset and now the eml light has come on with a manufacturer specific p2463 with I googled and it said something to do with soot. Car is now perm in limp mode. I have given it a good run before the second code to regen but how do I know it was successful. Any help with be appreciated

  6. Mot Emission

    update for you. cleared the oil out of the spark plug chamber and 'italian tuned' the car - retested and passed the emmission flying colours
  7. Mot Emission

    just read the paperwork again, and it was CO which was high not the CO2 So High CO and HC. Car is running better now I have cleared the oil from the spark plug chambers and no new oil has appeared so I am hoping it was just that. Will blast it before MOT to see if that helps. Could I check anything else?
  8. Mot Emission

    Just checked and they did not leave the figures with the paperwork I did take ht leads of and in the chambers it was full of oil. Coupke of months ago i left the oil cap off so presume it filled then cleaned it and its running better now. Do u think that would have skewed emmissions?

  14. Hi all, After a little help. i was driving to north wales from surrey when the temperature needle suddenly jumped up and the engine light came on. i stopped and noticed the coolant was empty (i had checked before the journey and it was halfway between min and max).I waited for it to cool then topped it up and finished the journey. next day the engine light was now off, but the bottle was empty again. i put water in and noticed drips down the front of the engine running down under the gearbox. the strange thing is that the whole time i was away, sometimes it leaked but sometimes it didnt. the car got me back with no top ups. there is no lack of power, no white smoke and no sludge around the oil filler cap so wondered if anyone knew what it could be. thanks
