P244C and P2463

Post by Filo1981 »

Hello, I hope someone could help me here in the forum. I am new in using FORSCAN and I hope someone could walk me through. Thanks

CAR- FORD MONDEO MK4 119K MILES

Scenario: Went for a long drive for 2 hours and when coming to junction and about to slow down CHECK ENGINE suddenly appear in the dash, check with my portable OBD2 scanner and found a DTC P2463 and try to delete it, it was successful however "ENGINE MALFUNCTION" still appearing. A couple of days ago, I tried using FORSCAN as suggested by a friend and manage to check the DPF LOAD which is %170 and rise to %175 now as I am using it everyday. POWER is still okay and no limp mode, bad smell coming out in the exhaust assuming now that the DPF is blocked. Mechanic checked the temperature sensor and vaporiser and says that the glow plug and sensors are all working, cleaned the DPF and did a force regeneration but when it came back the soot load didn't change still %170.

QUESTION NO. 1 - Do I need to change the temperature sensors?

QUESTION NO. 2- Do I need to change the vaporiser?

QUESTION NO. 3- Do I need to get a second opinion to DPF specialist? note: already paid 200GBP for the cleaning and still nothing happened :roll:

I hope someone could help me with this. THANKS.

Did he checked them during regen ? The temperature should rise above 600 degrees Celsius for bank 2 for a proper regen.

Not sure as I haven't seen and asked him. You mean the catalyst temp? Thanks

If that's the same engine as in the Kuga 2008-2012 they are know for the DPF pressure sensor. It's attached to the battery tray on the Kuga. Could be on the bulkhead on the Mondeo.

Looks like what is in the link below. Don't buy one made by mickey mouse from ebay for 15 quid and get yourself a decent one.

Am not sure if its the same tbh. I have the 2011 face lift 2.0 duratorque Tdci engine.

Update: I got a reading coming from DPF differentials pressure sensor of 0.55 in an iff engine. Does this mean my pressure sensor is faulty thats why I am not having a limp mode even thou my DPF soot load is %184 already which is obviously already clogged. Any opinions? Does this mean its not the vaporiser?

Have a read here. This may help you test the vaporiser which could be the cause of your P244C code.

Clogged vapouriser is a very common problem, personally I'd replace it and try a Forced Regen

I would not drive your car until this is done or you could irreparably damage the DPF.

Is said above DPF sensors (and their pipes) are also a common problem on the early Fords but yours seems to be working (presumably the 0kpa was when engine was NOT running?).

Yes thats correct I got 0-KPA, also I tried to static regen but still failed but the soot load going down for %2 everytime I do it and the DPF load as well gone down. If you say 600degrees to for the dpf to do regen, does it that mean the CAT temperature?
