Default Eolys fluid

Ok, Im getting the particle filter warning and after looking around the forum I see a lot of talk about this Eolys fluid.
What is it? Do I have to add it to fuel or what?
My car is due for its NCT (Mot) and I need to get this warning off my dash.
I see if I drill holes in the DPF I can get around the problem but will the car pass an NCT with this or will it increase the noise in the car?

Any help would be great.

Eloys Fluid is held in a small tank just under the rear passenger side.. if you look underneath near the wheel, you will see a shield and once you take that off you can see a plastic sort of tank which holds it..

each time, you fill in and close the fuel cap/lid a signal goes to the ECU which pumps a small quantity into the fuel tank which aid regenerations and keep the temperature down..

you might not have to drill holes, as the warning could mean anything... I know someone who's filter is completely blocked but never gets a anti pollution warning.. just a clean diesel filter warning..

I would ask you to get the car connected to Pug Planet to see the codes first..

let us know if you need any help..

Well you learn something new every day.
Do I have to top up this fluid, if so where would I get it for a reasonable price?

Rang the dealer and they told me it was 120 for enough for a 407. Can it be bought on ebay? If so is it allowed to be shipped internationally coz its a toxic fluid?

€120 is cheap.. did they say how much was in the kit?? Did they tell you what kind you car took?? the one above is 176.. just check caz it depends what kinda system you got..

If you need any help, see Martin's thread/guide (bettyswollocks) with pictures, its very useful

Mate you have planted a seed in my head... good idea..

Depends what type it is... pre 2003 cars use DPX24 however the newer ones use EOLYS176

you need to check first....
