Hi mike thanks

Ok from your description of the issue I would suspect a dpf concern as the driving style you described is ideal conditions for the dpf to enter a regeneration

Most commonly on kuga the fault is either a fautly dpf pressure sensor (leaves code p2002)

Or a dpf fuel vapourisour (leaves code p269f)

thus why the fault code is very important to the diagnostics if this issue

The fault isn’t egr valve related

Hi, is there anything that I have to do to get this sorted once and for all.
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Will it be possible to get this sorted out if I get a new sensor

The first thing I would advise is to get the correct fault code which is logged in the pcm as this is so imperative to getting to the bottom of this

I would save sure it was either the pressure sensor or dpf fuel vapourisour as the description is exactly what we would expect to see in these cases
