Are you suffering from DPF Problems?
If you run a diesel vehicle, you may have suffered from or heard of DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) problems. But do you know what they are and what they do?
In order for modern diesels to comply with the forever reducing emission limits set by the EU, diesel vehicles after 2010 are fitted with a DPF.
They are usually mounted within the front pipe of the exhaust system. Their purpose is to catch the larger soot particles to prevent them carry on through and out of the exhaust system into the environment.
Once the soot content of the filter reaches a set threshold level, the vehicle should enter a self regeneration process, which burns off these larger particles.
In order to achieve this regeneration, certain requirements within the engine need to be met. But this is where the problems lies, the driving conditions in the UK, where there is a lot of stop-starting and congestion, makes it difficult for the DPF to perform efficiently.
As a result many DPF’s do not regenerate correctly and then reach a phase where the soot content is just too high, restricting the exhaust flow; the vehicle is then forced into ‘limp mode’.
The cost of replacing a DPF can be anywhere from £600 to £2000! The good news is that there are now ways that this can still be remedied without the need to replace your DPF.
At Autoworks, we can remedy DPF problems by carrying out a DPF clean for you during your regular servicing, using our specialist Terraclean equipment and process.
And in over 99 % of cases we can successfully clean your DPF even if your vehicle has gone beyond its regeneration threshold.
