DPF Cleaning by qualified car mechanics in Blackburn.

A diesel particulate filter (DPF) is a device which sits within a vehicle’s exhaust system and is designed to “capture” soot/diesel particles to reduce harmful emissions into our towns and cities. It became legal for vehicle manufacturers (VMs) to fit DPFs to all vehicles when “Euro 5” emissions standards came into force in 2009, although many VMs did fit them prior to 2009.

DPFs self-clean through a process called “regeneration”, this happens under certain driving conditions and the particles are emitted leaving only a small ash residue. Sensors in the DPF unit communicate with the vehicles central computer (ECU) to determine when to clean – regenerate the DPF.

So what’s the problem?
For a wide variety of reasons DPFs do not always regenerate when they should, this may be due to driving style or conditions or for technical reasons. As the DPF fills up a warning light is shown on the dashboard, if the problem is not addressed the vehicle’s performance will deplete, the vehicle may go into “limp mode” and become unusable until the issue is resolved.

How can we help?
We specialise in fixing DPFs; we offer accurate DPF diagnostic testing and on vehicle cleaning of DPFs to remove soot particles with before and after pressure testing to prove it’s worked. For higher mileage vehicles we also offer off vehicle ash cleaning with a 24 hour turn around.
