⚠️ Engine lights or DPF lights on? Vehicle not running like it should?
🚗 Here we have a Ford Kuga 2.0 TDCI (2009 – 124,851 miles) booked in for diagnostic consultation and potential Engine Carbon Clean or DPF Clean depending on the findings.
ℹ️ The vehicle had recently had the Engine Malfunction warning and the DPF and Engine Light come on.
🔎 Initial inspection found no obvious issues in the engine bay.
💻 Initial diagnostics showed a code present for the DPF Differential Pressure Sensor which immediately reappeared when cleared – this is the culprit and needs to be replaced.
📊 Live data monitoring showed the pressure sensor flatlined at a high value as expected. In addition the coolant temperature was lower than expected and the owner reported it rarely gets up to temperature. A quick test confirmed that it probably needs a new thermostat.
✅On a good note the DPF had regenerated fairly recently indicating the DPF itself is fine.
ℹ️ Thermostats have a key role in allowing the car to get the best fuel economy (MPG). A cold running vehicle will over fuel to compensate and that wasted fuel is wasted money, plus increased emissions.
👨🔧 NO CLEAN TODAY – the owner can get the issues resolved and call us back for an Engine Carbon Clean once resolved.
