Quality hoses

Turbo Hoses from First Line

Published:  01 February, 2016

Alongside its premium quality First Line Turbo Hoses, the First Line Group (FLG) has now introduced a set of replacement pressure hoses for the diesel particulate filter (DPF) on the Ford Mondeo IV, as they are prone to premature failure.

The Ford Mondeo IV, Galaxy II and S-Max are fitted with a pair of rubber hoses, which run to and from the exhaust system either side of the DPF. First Line advises that if the vehicle is reporting engine code issues such P2002, P2452, or P2453 relating to the DPF or DPS, then there is a possibility that the DPF Hoses are the cause and require replacement. The inspection of these items should therefore be the first thought as it could save the vehicle owner from a lengthy repair and subsequently, a costly bill.
