If yours is a mk2 Kuga, Archiej20, check the "ALL Limp Home Mode / Engine Service Now info" topics for all the history to potentially your problem and then go and get the airfilter changed and the engine management software [PCM] upgrade and hopefully that'll do it.

Keep us posted.

So I assume it's a case of a poster posting in the wrong part of the forum.

If Mark/Archie can confirm whether he still has the Mk1 then I'll move the post to the Mk1 thread covering engine management/dpf issues.

You need to contact your dealer and ask them the question. Providingyouadhereto their instructions the responsibility is then theirs. As I said before it is not wise to assume anything. No one can remote diagnose the cause for the engine management light being on, as the light can come on for numerous causes. It requires technical equipment to be attached to interrogate the computer to ascertain the fault code.Edited by: Kuga 4Me

Anyway we had it changed , 24 hours later the engine malfunction light is back on , had AA come out and they tell me the soot contamination is reading at 282% now. Ford dealer told me we were contaminated at 309% prior to new dpf being fitted , Help

Me too. You drive car about town for a year or two.Then you drive for holiday at seaside. Motorway driving!
These Kugas need to exceed 2500 revs to build sufficient temperature to burn diesel particulates in the DPF (filter). In 6th gear at 130 km/hr, the revs are only at 2,200.
I have a two year old and am in the midst of battle with the dealers now.
The last stress you need when you drive on holiday is a dickey car, when you have a car full of kit and kids and you're in a strange place.....Ford need to take responsibility, or I will change brands fast

That’s useful to know, how long should you need to drive at 2,500rpm to burn the particulates... a few minutes.....half an hour ...more?

Have had a 2010 kuga for over a year now. I do not get a engine malfunction other than in the winter. It seems to come on when I go into the mountains with tunnels. Only then it comes on and when it does I loose engine power. I think turbo shuts down. I turn of the car and start it up again and it is gone. But of I continue up the mountain it can come back. But it does not happen other times. Only in Mountains. So weird. Had it to the mechs and read error the it might be moisture in filter. It happened last year in the winter and it came back now this winter.. Getting really frustrated.. One more thing to ask about not being in this case. Anyone know if possible to turn of the automatic heaters of front and back windows that comes on all the time when below 4 temperature? Annoying detail.
