As you drive, harmful exhaust soot starts to build up on the walls of your DPF filter, reducing performance and fuel efficiency. To keep the system clean, a process called ‘regeneration’ is used. This is when the exhaust temperature rises to 600°C and burns off the soot, keeping your engine free of harmful chemicals.
There are many factors that can stop this regeneration process from working effectively, such as the type of fuel and oil used, driving style and vehicle age and mileage.
If you’re experiencing the following symptoms your DPF may need cleaning:
A new DPF system can cost as much as £3,000 at a main dealer, but in most cases, using a DPF cleaning product can rectify the problem. So, if you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s important to get it checked out by a qualified technician as soon as possible to avoid costly bills.
Cleaning of DPFs system starts from £199 Inc Vat.
Prices may vary due to circumstances and conditions that Diesel particulate filters are put through and on many occasions the DPF is only a symptom of other problems within the vehicles engine management systems.
