That would be dpf soot accumulation. It's failed to regenerate. Isn't he EML light on and put it into limp mode.

Yeah EML is on. Last time this happened on my van I put some dpf cleaning in the tank and drove it at high revs for a few miles and that done the trick. So might try that first?????

It may be an idea to buy a modded elm 327 and download FORScan. It will give you the same information as a dealer diagnostic for fault codes. A decent ELM is about £20 and the FORScan software is free.

On a MK1 depending on mileage chances are it's the dpf pressure sensor located on the battery box but just a guess as there are so many reasons why the dpf hasn't regenerated.

Best ELM 327 to buy is either OHP or Proscan.

Like you was mentioned Forscan and check sensors, take screenshots on idle and higher revs.
Keep in mind in MK1 regeneration will not start up if you have under 20 litres of fuel in tank.

PS: It will generate different code but you have separate tank for eolys fluid. It's added to tank about 4 millilitres every time when you fueling. It last about 100k miles. It helps to regen DPF.

Where is this eloys fluid tank?
Not sure in Kuga. I had Citroen C5 2007 136ps and it was on left side fuel tank. When it run out I had a fault code about too low exhaust temperature...

Honest John says it's a PSA FAP engine which has the eloys bag. I am not so sure as I thought any car with a vapouriser didn't need the eloys system.

Was a bit unsure, as I know about dpf etc but last weekend was the first car I bought with a dpf, as my focus was euro 4 and the 1.8tdci lynx engine which back dates to old escorts, sierras, onions etc...

FORScan may give some info regarding the eloys as although I couldn't find much on the Kuga, the focus engine which has eloys has the ability in Forscan to let the car know it has been filled up.

I read a post the other day which said euro 5 engine will not be using eloys system. I haven't found anything else to back that up apart from a couple of guys swinging handbags at each other on honest John lol.

Still none the wiser but it's possible that a euro 5 engine may not have eloys and has a coated dpf instead. Now euro 5 didn't come in until September 2009 which doesn't help the early mk1 owners.

If you are registered with etis you can log in, generate a service sheet for your car and if it has eloys system it will be shown on the service sheet as a top up at 37,500 miles. The eloys system works on the process that every time you open the filler flap it does a squirt into the tank. Works from a magnet so if there's a magnet in there chances are it has eloys.

Hope the above helps but gut feeling says the 2 litre MK1 won't have it.

Magnet on the filler? My engine is the later 2.0tdci with only 1 throttle body at the front. I think they changed around 2010? I could be wrong tho.

Yes on the filler cap. Have a read here and see these two guys arguing with each other who is right and wrong. It is relative to the focus but I was under the opinion the 2 litre diesel used in focus and Kuga of same era was the same.

My engine has a different lay out than a 2009 and earlier 2010, unsure why. The whole inlet,egr and other things are different. My engine code is ufda.

Perhaps the early Kuga had the euro 4 engine. Wasn't the bhp of the earlier engine 136 or 138. I see you have the 140 engine which carried through to the early MK2 until it went to euro 6 with the 150 engine which is what mine is. I don't know much about the MK1.

The 136 what was in the 2009 peugeot 407, the only reason I know this is this is what my mate has, and when were cleaning the inlet out on mine, he said they layout on mine was different to his. So I looked and it was. The engine in the pug had a dpf which i believe came in on the euro 5?
