You are getting there then.

I do not think your DPF light is due a DPF issue. You can try to regenarate it to keep this out of the picture. Some times the wire process needs to be tried a few times before it works. However, if the ECU is reprogrammed, such functionalities may have been wiped.

If they had cleaned the oil pipes and they still got blocked within 8K miles, there must be a lot of dirt in the engine.
Does your car have the timing chain changed?
So on Saturday I gave the car a bit of power but it lost power and the Traction control lights came on and I lost the rev counter, I managed to get it home then when I parked it on the drive it started making a horrendous knocking noise and the MIL came on so I plugged in the scanner and it came up with P0336 and P0337 all to do with crankshaft sensor.

Has anyone else had this issue and if so what did they need to do?

Cheers for that ill have look through the links....the timing chain has already been changed 8000 miles ago after it stretched due to not changing the oil soon enough,,all the oil pick was cleaned and what not but after taking the turbo off the oil return pipe was slightly blocked at one end so that was cleaned along with the intake pipes im now trying to regen the dpf with the wire to chassis method and it wont do it

Hi Iain mine just gets wet from the outside rain but it does look like it is damp, I try to remember to just wipe it over when starting off on a trip and hoping it will be clear when I park

I think this is a big DIY for anyone in here to have played with it.

There is no guarantee that the turbo is fine. If it is fine, did you remove and check all the pipes you connected to it?

That should be a standard procedure more or less. Sometimes you cannot find a leak without replacing the pipe.

The only link that comes up for Mazda 6 is a bit old but it includes some nice contextual information:

There are different opinions about the oil flush. Some of it remains in the engine and destroys the quality of the new oil. These engines have a huge issue with the oil lubrication. Just use the standard C1 oil and you will be fine.

The DPF light means a lot of things. One of them is the timing chain stretching problem. That is related among other things to the oil. When the oil is not circulating, you get different parts of the engine dying and one of the first to die, if you are lucky and it stops there, is the turbo. As you have to deal with the turbo already, you may have a much bigger problem in front of you than what you thought you have.

Can you read whether the DPF light is down to the timing chain? If that is not your problem, then you should investigate the whole lubrication workflow. Start with the oil pick up job first to ensure that it is not blocked. If that was blocked, the oil flush can make things worse by moving the dirt around and block other bits of the engine. If the oil pick is clean, go for the turbo pipes and replace them.

If you ensure that you have no problems with the lubrication, keep investigating the turbo failure. Have you checked the EGR?

When an engine part fails, you will need to pay attention to everything connected to it. Can you ensure that the pressure switch for the turbo is working?

The turbo was a recon jobbie and i put it on myself changed the oil ran upto temp by tickover then changed the oil for some flush stuff for 10 mins then dumped that for new oil and filter..Im thinking its got a split hose or something but need to know what hoses /pipes to check

I did around 80 miles in james bond mode so no doubt hasnt done the dpf any good when the light came on yesterday it was on constant but off today,,shame i never had the reader in the car then

If they can guarantee that the turbo was checked before the sale, then you can do all the other turbo checks. Something like that?
