Adblue has been installed on many Euro 6 vehicles since September 2016 and many owners of vehicles between 2016-2020 are starting to get nothing but issues from Adblue warnings and even worse faulty components that are not in stock at the main dealers. The main problem comes down to the system not allowing a vehicle start if the Adblue counter reaches zero, many customers chance it and the vehicle will simply become immobilised. ( this is normally when they phone us! )
Ford Transit & Ford Customs along with Mercedes Sprinters and Vito models are by far the most common vans to have the Adblue system disabled. At present the MOT test doesn’t have any test methods to test or check if the Adblue system has been disabled and as such this means you can have the Adblue removed without fear of the vehicle failing an MOT. Some customers are worried about removing the Adblue but there really isn’t much to worry about the Adblue is injected AFTER the DPF meaning it doesn’t effect the DPF regen process and it causes no long term issues.
Adblue was fitted to Euro 6 vehicles to try and reduce emissions exiting from the vehicles exhaust. Many owners of Euro 6 vehicles find Adblue a pain and with the systems constantly failing they are a massive problem. For example dealers charge on average £1200 – 1600 to repair an Adblue system. Why should the customer be responsible for an emissions system that has just about lasted the warranty period? This seems to be the case with a huge amount of vehicles on UK roads.
How does the Adblue system work?
Below is a diagram of the Adblue system and how it works on your vehicle. When we Remap the Adblue system out we remove the Adblue part out of the engines ECU map. This means the vehicle will still run and drive as per usual but inject no Adblue into the exhaust ever again. As such no top ups or warning messages regarding the Adblue will ever appear.
