Default 407 2.2hdi

Please recently purchased this car, after driving for about 2weeks everything got fine till I went to top up £20petrol into the Diesel engine. Had about 80miles before topping and drove for about 5miles. What are the possible things to occur as I want to drain out the fuel and fuel lines. Do I need to top my DPF fluid since I’m draining the car?

Just fill the rest of the tank with diesel and it will be fine

It’s just cranking and won’t start but when you let the air out it starts. So the garage wants to drain the tank and fuel lines. Just curious if I have to do dpf top up since it might go with the drain. Thanks

Hmm.

It full tank costs about 80 so, as above, I'd expect you to get away with it if you fill with diesel.

Let the air out of where?!

There is a priming bulb for the fuel system.

The dpf additive is in a separate tank (3 litres IIRC; it has no level sensor-- the computer tracks how much is left). The fuel tank is dosed with the same fixed amount of additive every time you remove the fuel cap.

Let the air out from the nozzle on the common rail. It starts and sound finds. So am draining all of it, will I have to top the dpf then since it must have been injected to the fuel which I will drain out.
Thanks

Dont waste your time draining it wont get it all anyway as said just fill it with diesel and it will be fine the non start till you bleed it sounds like a secondary issue with air leaking in somewhere.

That's strange.
And isn't that really dangerous given the massive pressure?

I'm getting a cruise control error on the dash display when accelerating hard using foot throttle.......this disables the cruise control for the rest of the journey .....however it resets itself once engine is switched off.

Really needs PP2K on it to find out what the car thinks the problem is.
