The Ford DPF systems tend to be quite troublesome especially on the 1.6 TDCi and the 2.0 TDCi, mainly due to it being a “wet” system and this causing confusion with owners. When DPF systems regenerate, unburnt diesel/Eolys mixture is injected into the DPF via the exhaust stroke and this combusts when it hits the hot DPF. This process causes the DPF to rapidly heat up and burns off the build up of soot inside the DPF turning it from soot into a much lesser volume of ash. The DPF regeneration process cannot take place in the Ford vehicles if the “Eolys” tank in the boot space is not topped up. The high cost, practicality and availability of the “Eolys” fluid means that keeping it topped up is difficult for owners.

The Ford 1.6 TDCi engine is also known for turbo failure which means that every time the turbo fails the DPF must be replaced (due to the DPF filling with oil). However, the added back pressure caused from a blocking DPF will also contribute to turbo failure, so from our experience it seems like the turbo and DPF put additional strain on each other. For these reasons, choosing to remove the DPF on the 1.6 TDCi is likely to increase the life of your turbo.
