DPF Cleaning & Repair is yet another new service that we have been providing to our customers, as many customers with a Diesel Particulate Filter on their vehicle may experience problems with the unit becoming blocked or clogged due to a sooty build up inside.
Since 2009 exhaust emissions have been limited by law via the required fitting of a DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) to all diesel vehicles.
This means that many vehiucles prior to 2009 will also have been fitted with a DPF in anticipation of the incoming emissions restriction.
The DPF was designed to reduce emissions by up to 80% - but the technology is not without its problems. The AA has reported that they are regularly called out to both domestic car owners and commercial vehicles alike stranded at the roadside with the DPF warning light on the dashboard.
Basically - over time the sooty build up in the DPF will eventually cause the vehicle to drop into "limp mode" - or even preventing the vehicle from moving at all.
Reasons to get your Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) Repaired & Cleaned:
- Pass your M.O.T. within the emissions threshold
- Increase the fuel efficiency of your vehicle
- Prevent long term damage to the expensive internals of the DPF.
- Experience a huge cost saving on buying a new unit
After we have repaired the faulty Diesel Particulate Filter you will notice an immiediate improvement in overall vehicle performance - but more importantly - be able to pass any M.O.T. required to continue to use your vehicle legally.
Due to the contents of a modern Diesel Particulate Filters being made mainly of expensive metals, the cost to replace a faulty Diesel Particulate Filter
can be as much as £1000 - £3000 for a large commercial vehicle!
