Ford service campaign to resolve EcoSport DPF issues

Ford has finally found a solution to the DPF troubles and issued a voluntary emission recall.

Earlier this year, there were reports of BS6 Diesel Ford EcoSport owners facing diesel particulate filter (DPF) issues with their cars. We had even reported that Ford had suspended deliveries until July 15, 2021, while the engineers tried to find out the root cause of the issue. However, Ford neither acknowledged it nor announced an official recall.

It seems Ford has finally found a solution to the DPF troubles and issued a voluntary emission recall.

The carmaker has notified customers to get their vehicles inspected at their nearest Ford service station if they're experiencing engine rpm oscillations at low speeds. According to Ford, this could be due to poor combustion, which might damage the diesel particulate filter.

The inspection will only address vehicles reporting emission limits higher than those regulated under standard test conditions. To resolve the issue, Ford will replace the emission reduction components of the exhaust system and update the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) software. It would take less than half a day to rectify the problem.

Customers are requested to book an appointment by providing the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) at the earliest.
