I've picked up a 58 plate mondeo 2.0 tdci cheap, but with some issues..... I've managed to sort all but the parking sensors and DPF so far, but getting stuck with the dpf at the moment. So looking for some help!
The car: 2.0TDCi titanium X mk4, 141k. No history with it, was being offloaded by a local trader as they'd taken it in p/x. I've got Forscan with bluetooth ELM327 and laptop, no hs/ms switch. Awaiting usb modified ELM327.
Initially had P2002 fault code with EML. 0kPa on DPF pressure sensor at idle and under load. Checked the sensor by applying vacuum, hey presto Forscan showing a pressure. Checked under the car, one of the pressure hoses completely split, as per other posts. Replaced hoses today, now reading a pressure difference at idle, increasing under load. Didn't record the pressures, can check them again later if it helps.
I expected that the dpf would not have performed a regen for a while, as by the look of the pressure hose it had been munched for some time. So I cleared the DTCs, reset DPF learned values and took the car out for a drive up the motorway hoping it would start a regen. Got a couple of miles from home and got a "diesel filter overloaded" warning on convers+, followed shortly by EML & limp mode. Never had limp mode with EML for P2002. New codes are:
Reset DTC's, they came straight back straight away.
Got home reset DTCs, tried to do a static regen. No change in RPM, sat at idle for 10 minutes so presumed it had failed. Tried again, same thing. Tried the P242B clearing trick (disconnect MAF), then started static regen - wahey...revs up to 3k+! Lasted 5 minutes before getting the "diesel filter overloaded". So no luck with the static regen...
So where next? Any help greatly appreciated!
