hi, the particle filter needs to be re-generated after 80,000 miles.. its not as simple as topping up the fluid.. as the car needs to know it has been done..

the oil is topped and the car is reved upto 3000 revs to regenerate.. depending on what mileage your motor has done, it might need the particle filer replacement..

They can only rip off people who possess insufficient knowledge to protect themselves.

They're a business and I'd never knock them for making a profit from my ignorance. The response is to acquire the knowledge/contacts yourself, and those that that haven't/can't/don't want to do this have no alternative but to pay. The choice is ours.

You are absolutely correct that they can make money on our ignorance but there should be a limit so that it does not go into the area calle "Rip-off" anyways, I am not trying to advertise anything but I found a place in Leeds that does that and they charged me £110. They won't do it in front of me and I use this car as a Private Hire vehicle so I did not have a choice but to get it fixed.

I think there is a plastic tank near the right passenger tire that holds the fluid, this fluid was like red but not toxic as I have seen some post describing it very toxic. It was leaking thus failing the private hire inspection and they said fuel leak. Took it to the mechanic and my mechnaic did not know what it was so I had to change the small hose and fixed the leak. I believe the guy who filled it about 2 months ago did not push it all the way in so it was leaking.

If anyone knows what kind of fluid it is then I think we can buy it cheaper then Dealer who sells is for about £80 for 3 liters or something. I personally thought it looks like a Automatic Transmission fluid any one else have any opinion on it. Please let me know as dealer is taking full advantage of our ignorance:mad:

BTW what is FLEEBAY? I saw in some posts but unable to understand it. Please excuse my ignorance and let me know so I dont ask such a stupid question again.

The fluid is Cerium (III) Oxide in a suspension fluid. I don't know what the fluid is, but I suspect that it will be either water based or based on a light hydrocarbon. The idea is that the fluid carries the Cerium Oxide to the exhaust filter where the Cerium then violently attracts oxygen, burns and takes with it the particles that the filter has trapped.

Fleabay = Ebay :lol:
