It is brand new!Comes straight from a shop.
sorry again but how do yo fill the eloys tank?does it have a filler nozzle or do i need to remove the tank
When you buy the 1 or 3 litre additive from peugeot/citroen a filling kit comes with it... maybe have a look at your own tank and see how full/empty it is.
They usally need topping up around 80-100,00miles.
As i said topping up the tank is only one part of it ..the system counters need
to be reset so it knows its full again and the dpf needs looking at with
diagnostic equipment as if it blocks it can cause back pressure in your engine which can do harm to your turbo....and engine....
If your anywhere near galway i can reset the system with Planet...
I forgot to mention eloys fluid is pretty nasty stuff and can cause burns
to the skin....so be careful if you do top up your additive tank.
If you need anymore info on topping up the additive pm me an i can
send you some info...Ron
For a Ford Focus 1.6 with the DPF, the Haynes manual has a routine without any diagnostic equipment (turn ignition on a few times, open/close fuel flap a few times, dance around the car 3 times etc etc...
Yet to try!
...is it called the dpf dance....
With Peugeot/Citroens the counters need to be zeroed....with the first
607's there was a procedure along with the diag equip where you would have to open the fuel cap for a few minutes,close it again wait a few more minutes
etc.....But no mention of a dance...
With the 407's resetting is straight forward enough....
I think my c4 will need this too. I used to get the warning light from time to time few months ago. Now I get this warning everytime I start the car lately. Car is over 100k miles. Due for service in few weeks. Looks like it will be a shocking one too.
I'll will dance around the car tomorrow. Maybe save myself a small fortune
Don't let it go to long as if it blocks it can cause other engine/turbo problems.
Then there maybe a war dance...
is this job enevitable. eg does it happen every 1.6hdi around 100k or do some cars escape without ever hving to be touched. just curious to know what price your looking if the dpf or watever comes up on the screen to get fixed presuming you get it done straight away
Both the 1.6 and 20 hdi's have dpf's where Peugeot recommend replacment
I'm afraid None of them escape.....
On a dpf service Peugeot would normally do.....
1)replaced they dpf with a reconditioned unit. €380 give or take (Parts only)
2)top up additive tank €110 give or take for 3 litres (parts only)
3)Reset the counters and tell the engine ecu that its had a new dpf..
labour and system reset will vary but say €300 - €350.
so this brings it up to around €800-850 from a main dealer....
Prices may have came back down since....
Maybe ring your local dealer and ask them for a price for a dpf replacment and topping up the additive tank.
The 1.6 hdi's tend to display ... Particle filter regeneration cycle urgent and
the 20 hdi's tend to ... display..... depolution system faulty
Removing and powerwashing the dpf's can also be a cheaper alternative
but then these faults will still need resetting and the additive will also need
to be topped up.
If need be i can check reset all dpf systems on all Peugeot/Citroens.
and it won't break the bank.....
whats up row.do you have any info on removing the dpf from a 1.6 pug 407.do i need to cut the thing off?how accessible is it to remove?im no mechanic so is it a job for some one who knows their ****? thanks row
eemmm, if you knew your **** why are you asking for help??
What mileage have you on your 407...??
The dpf is below the turbo.
You can't cut it out so easy as your car will be in limp mode all/most the time...
I'm guessing you have "Partical filter regeneration urgent" comming up
on your display....?
Were are you based..?
I don't think he is saying he knows his sh** but rather is it a job for another person who knows his sh**.
