Below are some popular questions regarding Diesel Particulate Filter’s and they need cleaning.
What is dpf cleaning?
Diesel Particular Filters (DPFs) were created to meet the forever changing emissions regulations. They are now fitted to nearly all new diesel vehicles. DPFs are designed to remove the build-up of soot when you drive your vehicle. However as time passes this can cause the DPFs to get blocked or damaged. This is more prevalent when driving locally on short journeys at low speeds. Having your DPF cleaned regularly will save you on costly repairs.
Do I need this service?
If you have a diesel vehicle and you are getting the following symptoms, you may need DPF cleaning.
– The DPF warning light is visible on your vehicle’s dashboard
– You notice a loss of power
– If you vehicle’s stop and start system has stopped working
– You are getting poor fuel economy
– If you notice your cooling fans are running more than usual
How often should i clean my DPF?
This will depend on how you drive, the type of car you have and the mileage you do. If you drive for long periods on higher gears you may just need a maintenance clean every 6 months. If however you drive mainly locally and with lower gears then you will need to get your vehicle booked in for a full inspection and full deep clean.
Can i remove my dpf?
That is an absolute no no. It is now illegal to remove your DPF as it is a mandatory check during your MOT. If the vehicle was originally fitted with a DPF and then removed this will fail your MOT test.
how Can i avoid having dpf problems?
If you have not already purchased a diesel vehicle, you should consider your driving habits. If you will be doing mainly local driving it is wiser to not purchase a diesel vehicle. However if you already have a diesel vehicle fitted with a DPF, we recommend you get your DPF cleaned every six months to prevent the build up of soot.
