Fixed Kuga 2011 2.0 tdci fuel vapouriser replaced

Post by Simon8936 »

Just wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction replaced dpf fuel vapourizer as had DTC p244c but I can work out how to clear the code now it’s been replaced
Previous vapourizer was block when removed so was hoping it was fixed
Is it just a case of waiting for soot level to increase as its only on 40% at the moment
Currently it’s only got p224c in dtc
But has engine malfunction on dash
I’m using eml327 lead into windows laptop
Thanks in advance for any help

Explained replaced, new component or used component.
You need to find a proper wiring schematic and a digital multimeter.
This link may help with some tests:
https://www.gotboost.co.uk/p244c-ford-t ... c-testing/

By reading this UK version, there is more than one circuit that monitors the fuel vapourizer

The Euro models are different than NA but the "fuel vaporizer" may be activated with a bi-directional scan tool.
Ask the developers is that is possible, and also perform a DPF test to monitor the vaporizer with FORScan and a meter.

With a schematic, the wiring connections can be tested, the glow plug resistance can be measured with the meter
To measure the current draw, the meter should be capable of measuring 15 Amps.
Incorrectly performed and the meter will be destroyed. The best option is an AMP clamp attached to the meter
ie: 12.5v battery voltage divided by 1.1 Ohms glow plug resistance equals 11.36 Amps total draw on that circuit.

The rest of the attached harness can be tested to the PCM for open circuits or short circuits. Monitor the fuel delivery pump.

If you do not know how to perform these tests, hire a professional.
Post your results.

Hi thanks for reply all connections seem good double checked with multimeter
Read up that permanent code need to run through drive cycles to clear them
This is new to me always fixed issue deleted code job done
Can anyone confirm drive cycle works with permanent fault codes many thanks

If there's a permanent fault, no drive cycles will complete but what you read may help.

I have the same same issue have replaced the sensor the dpf and the vaporiser but can’t shift the p244c code and can’t get the car to do a regen as it keeps aborting with unspecified condition

That’s it must be away forward everything seems ok but can’t get car to clear p244c so can’t forced regent
I have read you must reset exhaust Temperature values but have done that and still can’t clear code
The p244c code states present

Hi there i dont know if you have already checked but when the vaporiser blocks or glow plug becomes faulty it also can
blow a fuse in the engine bay fuse box (fuse f32 in ford transits) so you may have to check exactly which fuse it is in your kuga.
i hope this is of some help.

I’m wondering if this is something I’ll have to take to Ford to clear as it seems not to clear deleting dtc as it’s present

Static regeneration doesn’t work Service interrupted as fault is present

Soot levels are building now and don’t want to wreck dpf
