Hi. I just bought a 2011 KUGA diesel Powershift 163 AWD a few weeks ago. I really like it but there's a problem. 

When the DPF is regenerating, we get the smoke and fumes coming out from the engine compartment rather than the pipes at the rear. The pipes aren't blocked and you can feel quite a strong pressure when you put your hands over the pipe ends. However, the pipe ends are very sooty and blacken up again after a hundred miles or so of normal driving. There's no evidence of black smoke at any time and the fuel consumption is around 46mpg on average. 

My daily journey is 70 miles of mainly dual carriageway at 65mph and a bit of B Roads at 30-40mph. I've found it's quite easy to force a regen by driving in 4th for a few minutes

I'm thinking it could be a very dirty EGR Valve and / or poorly sealed joints on the exhaust, but there's no additional noise and I can't find the EGR. 

Any ideas?

It is likely that you have a gap in the exhaust near the engine. I remember there was a post here about same symptoms and later it turned out to be a leaky joint in the exhaust.
The part that lets the engine to move without putting stress on the exhaust.

Hi again,

Turns out I have at least one blowing injector. If you put your hand on the rubber cover (the one behind the removable cover), you can feel it pulsing when the engine is running.

Hi again. The injector has been resealed and the garage have instigated a regen on the DPF. They said there were clouds of black smoke and it's OK. The next decent drive provided an alarm with an orange engine malfunction warning, the EML and on scanning, a P2002 fault code with the text that the "DPF efficiency is below threshold. Bank 1". I also looked up the secret menu on the car and got "DTC #01 - D900"which is an apparently generic code relating to the CANBUS and nothing particular to worry about.

Any more ideas?

I say take it back to the garage because it still has a problem with the DPF.

If you've had a faulty injector it could have wrecked the DPF and the only fix is to either gut it and get it coded out .... illegal, unethical and never have the problem again or fit a new one.
