Hi, found this on the SMax Owners Club site and thought it might be useful.

It seems to apply to 2010-build 2.0TDCi 140 / 163 PS Mondies & SMaxes. It is Ford technical service bulletin 63/2010, issued in September 2010.

Unfortunately the wording of the bulletin doesn't really make anything clearer ...... it is copied word for word here.


11/9/10 Engine malfunction warning lamp illuminated on the instrument cluster; Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P269F present

63/2010 Should a customer express concern about the engine malfunction warning lamp illuminated on the instrument cluster, the probable cause is a blown fuse due to fuel vaporizer component internal short circuit caused by a fuel vaporizer overheating. The overheating is a result of a lack of fuel in the fuel vaporizer fuel line ahead of first Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) regeneration.

Furthermore Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P269F - Exhaust Aftertreatment Glow Plug Circuit/Open - is stored in the Powertrain Control Module (PCM).

To rectify this concern, a new fuel vaporizer system should be installed in reference to the instructions detailed in this bulletin.

For markets where FordEtis IDS is used, connect FordEtis IDS and select the appropriate symptoms from the concern descriptions above. Follow the FordEtis IDS instructions to rectify this concern and send any related diagnostic feedback session files. Failure to follow these instructions will affect any associated warranty claim submission. For markets where FordEtis IDS is not available, rectify this concern by following the attached service repair instruction.

Hi, correct me if I am wrong but unless they've change the way the dpf is regenerated on the 2.0l TDCi, this way of performing a regen doesn't exist with that engine.

Chris, I don't know.

A few 2010-model SMax owners seem to have experienced this issue, and the SMax motors are identical to those in the Mondy .... the wording of the TSB is not clear but Ford may have changed the way the DPF regenerates in the revised 2.0TDCI engines which they started phasing in during late summer of last year.

To meet Euro V standards they've got a higher-pressure injection system, new 8-hole injectors (previous were 6-hole), revisions to EGR and a new DPF, according to this:

Hi, interesting docoment that and thanks for sharing it Craig. I wonder in the Mk4.5 Ford have now adopted the method that's on the Fiesta as described here http://www.honestjoh...iculate-filters because of the short journey regen requiring input from the driver.

Hi Guys
Thanks for the very useful posts.
Had the dreaded engine malfunction warning light recently on my Mondeo 2.0 TDCI ( 163 ) Powershift ( 2010 ).
Ford agent confirmed faulty fuel vapouriser, replaced under warranty.
Early days, but one unexpeceted benefit is that fuel consumption appears to have improved noticeably, particularly during Urban short runs, by as much as 25% ( previously around 32mpg in the city, now nearer 40 mpg! ).
Should I be surprised and has anyone else noticed this benefit.?
