Hello everyone,
Today I had problem with my Kuga.
Car wouldn't accelerate and water temperature comes up to 110°C :eek:
After cooling down a bit accelerate as normal.

Another strange thing car has a problem to warm up cabin even in setting temperature to HIGH.

Oil level high over scale, so it trying to regen DPF and oil is mixing with diesel?

  • Engine cooling water in correct level.
  • No any faults on Forscan.

(DPF_LOAD,%) after 5 minutes trip with 2200rpm comes up to 105%, then come down to 95% when slow down. It should start up regen faster, about at 70%

I guess it might be the problem with one of DPF sensor, because (DP_DPF_2, kPa) is always 0.0. :sick:

I did 2 screenshot in Forscan:
- 1st at Low rpm:

-2nd at 2500rpm:

Any advice on the temat or not is more than appreciated :ROFLMAO:

This results mean DPF is blocked, or faulty sensor tubing?

Finally my car is fully fixed now. DPF regeneration was finished :D
Main problem cause snapped water pump impeller

I had under 60k miles on clock. Tensioner was under scale, at beginning I couldn't fit camshaft locking pin.

With diagnostic this issue helped me video where Alan Howatt showed overheating issue in Mondeo MK5. I'm very grateful.

Cambelt and water pump successfully changed. It took 5h of hard work:

What water pump did you use?, never been a fan of the plastic/ composite impellers.

I've got our timing belt to do and will be using an all metal pump assy.

I bought a Gates set KP25672XS.
I tried to find pump with metal impeller, but all of them are made from plastic 😕
Gates recommended to change whole set again after 60k kilometers or 3 years. Comes with 2 years warranty.

Well done! It's a bit of squeeze in there isn't it? I've done my Galaxy 2.0tdci but not the Kuga yet. Due soon!

@tractorboy Definitely this job it's for someone with little hands. Wiring loom it's attached to back of cambelt cover, to pull it out you need lucky skills. Water pump bolts are next to car body. Rest just have to be unscrewed like puzzle.
To see flywheel locking pin it's necessary to remove starter motor and pipes around.

Alan Howatt showed how to easy diagnose water pump, in my car this pipe could be slided without hassle:

Well done @MaoVi - you did well here. With hindsight your initial problem could have pointed to a blocked radiator or water pump but you wouldn't expect those to fail at such low a mileage. That problem has then presented itself with not regenerating the dpf giving you the next problem.

Your post is a good example of why it is imperative to change water pump when changing cambelt. This would have cost you a fortune at a garage.

@MaoVi , how hard was the crank bolt to undo?, I did my friend's Focus a while back and it was an absolute pig to get off.

Had a good look and you're correct, nobody does a metal impeller pump, Gates looks like a good kit.

I've got a different flywheel so will have to have a think about how to lock it off and make sure engine is timed correctly.

@smartguy69 During the week I'm not travelling too far. Was difficult to notice my impeller is faulty, but when regeneration started and engine overheat I know something is definitely **
...also in colder days cabin heating was poor...

@keithmac I used heat gun, temperature set to 350°C and 6 minutes straight heat to bolt. I unscrewed it by powerful impact wrench MOSS 450NM without problem.

There is 3/4 bolt covered with thread lock so I don't think it could be unscrewed by normal wrench. You could try if you make some additional lock to flywheel tooth. I heard without impact wrench and heating is high chance to bend flywheel locking pin, even if both pins are in.

This engine has very high compression. Surprised me how difficult is to turn it. Was easier if waited few seconds and continue turning.
