DPF Cleaning (Diesel Particulate Filter)

If your DPF is clogged we can help!

Why is my DPF filter clogged?
There are several reasons ranging from component failure such as Glow plugs, EGR valve through to simple pressure sensor failures. Low coolant temperature due to a thermostat fault, even unfavourable driving habits such as constant short journey driving can cause your DPF to clog. This means the car is unable to carry out a normal regeneration process.

Our DPF Cleaning Procedure

Step One

Diagnostic read of the fault memory including diagnosis. Taking not of how much back pressure resides in the DPF

This allows our experienced team to find out if there are any faults affecting your engine ability to self-regenerate. This is a most commonly missed vital step overlooked by others, simply cleaning the DPF wont work wasting time and money.

Step Two

We Inject our DPF Chemical solution into your exhaust system ( without the costly need to remove your DPF ) combined with our diagnostic were able to carry out a Forced Regeneration.

Forced Regeneration? We can tell your engine to perform a regeneration process when we want it to occur. This is a two-person task one driving and another constantly checking DPF pressures are lowering.

Step Three

Our two technician’s road test the vehicle for approximately 40 minutes mostly using the motorway ensuring the DPF is purged and clear. Once we are happy the forced regeneration is completed, and pressures are suitably low.

We allow the engine to perform a regeneration of its own, this is vital to ensure no further issues occur.

What does the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF)

This catches soot in the exhaust emitted by your engine. As with any filter they must be emptied regularly to maintain performance. For a DPF this process is called ‘Regeneration’, the collected soot is burnt off at high temperature to leave only a tiny ash residue.

This is part of the normal process, often when the car is used on short journeys this normal regeneration cycle cannot regenerate with the soot produced. This can cause a restriction in your particulate filter blocking the flow of exhaust gases which can result in poor engine performance and reduced fuel economy.
