Hi kuga family I'm new here and in need of some help with my MK1 2.0 titanium as garages carnt seem to find the problem it's been into 4 different garages lol.

I had a dpf problem around 3 months after buying my kuga where I was told its excessively blocked and needs replacing so I've had that replaced with alot of other things but when I'm driving at a constant speed say 50-60mph I either get engine malfunction with traction control light or get code p2566

Currently I've had replaced
Dpf filter
Dpf pressure sensor
Dpf temperature sensor
New turbo
New boost pipe
New map sensor
New maf sensor
New battery
Turbo boost solenoid
But it's still exactly the same now the car drove fine before the dreaded dpf fault. But no garages can pin point the issue it's also been smoke tested for nearly 2 hours and a good look over and no pipes are leaking. Any help would be really helpful

Thank you for reading jess.

Was it a genuine Ford DPF?, someone on here had problems with an aftermarket one.

Theres a post on Facebook where they've found the main power supply cable to the fusebox was in very poor condition, worth a look (big cable at front of battery box).

Yes that's my post on facebook lol. I've just stuck loads of electric tape round it then put a piece of hosepipe round it for abit to try stop the connection to other metals.

The cars fine travel normal it's when it gets onto a duel carrageway or motorway travelling at a constant speed it throws codes up

It may help having a look on the other ford forums as I found this on the C-max site.

There is also a separate site for Mondeo and focus to which may help.

The code appears to point to a turbo issue and not the dpf. I would suggest you find a diesel specialist who can test the pressure of the turbo and vacuum pipes. It is all too easy now for cars to throw up a code which would point to a turbo and the garage will replace that when there maybe no need. It could just be a pipe or a sensor but you need to find someone who has the proper test equipment. Don't go to someone like Kwik fit or Halfords or someone else who specialises in tyres and exhaust. You need a proper garage who have experience mechanics and technicians.

If you live close to Hull I can recommend a couple of people.
