DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) Services
What is a DPF filter?
Most diesel cars from 2007 onwards will be fitted with a DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter), the filter is part of the exhaust system and is designed to capture the soot particles before they leave the system thus reducing the exhaust emissions.
DPF filters were introduced as a means of controlling the emissions from diesel vehicles and ever since 2009 the Euro 5 ruling has been in force that stipulates all diesel cars must be fitted with a diesel particulate filter.
The filter works by acting as a physical trap for the particles that would otherwise come out the back of your vehicle. Just like any other filter it requires cleaning to ensure the flow of exhaust gas remains and that it doesn’t get blocked with ash.
Luckily there is a procedure in place whereby the vehicle will self clean the DPF (DPF Regen) as you drive but this has limitations and can be prone to problems. When one of these limitations is hit or a problem occurs this is when we can help.
We offer a complete range of DPF services for virtually all vehicles

Sometimes your DPF is unable to regen by itself, we have the diagnostic tools to force a regeneration procedure on your car.
If your DPF is beyond being regenerated due to be full or above the parameters for a DPF regen we can clean the DPF.
If your DPF is beyond regeneration or cleaning, the last resort is often to replace the entire DPF unit.
