CX-7 / Tow Bar & Electrics
« Last Post by Agentmatt on July 18, 2018, 07:58:31 am »
Hi All,

Can any of you guys help?  I'm having issues finding a place that can fit a tow bar & electrics to my 2011 CX-7.  If any of you know where I can get this done, that would be great. 

I'm in the Bristol area, but will travel if needed.

Thanks

If you have the 2011 2.2 and not the 2.0, then it could be the timing chain. But in any case, the engine sign should not come up if it is was just regeneration.

Check the injectors for leaks and the oil pick up.

There was somebody who has done some major work on the engine and said that regenarations were not done but he did it bit by bit and at the end it did a full regeneration. If you have the opportunity to drive the longer distances, then it should be the same job.

Mazda 6 / 2008 Mazda 6 - Flashing DPF Light.
« Last Post by carpark321 on July 16, 2018, 03:06:00 pm »
Hi

Can someone help me as I am getting loads of garages to look at my 2008 Mazda 6 estate and no one can fix the problem?

I had a DPF light come onto my dashboard and for a month or so the light kept going out as the car regenerated itself on the motorway but then the engine sign and flashing DPF sign came on and it hasn't regenerated itself. I took it to a reputable mechanic and he took the DPF off cleaned it out and re fitted as it was completely blocked with soot etc and now clean but the DPF light keeps flashing. The same mechanic has tried to do a forced regeneration but failed as it would not regenerate. The oil is OK and at the right level and no diesel has got into the oil so that is OK. Apparently no fault codes are showing up when plugged into the diagnostic machine so its left us baffled.

Some forums say it comes on as a service light but in my case don't think it is the case as when you start the engine it takes a few seconds for the DPF light to start flashing and when it does there is a slight different sound to the engine so it effects the engine in some way.

Can anyone help?

Did you find the manual or any other instructions, or was it more about playing with it until you made it?

I think you have to put it back and if the car works better, then the cleaning did the trick.

Update...

Ok, so I have the egr off, eventually. Have cleaned it up overnight in a soak.
Anyone know how I can test it whilst off the car?
Resistance settings or something??

Hello All quick update incase somebody has a similar problem

The leak was traced to a small crack in the thermostat housing

Once this was changed the issue resolved itself
