WHAT IS DPF AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
The Diesel Particulate Filter is a device housed in your vehicle’s exhaust.
It is designed to filter out and trap the soot particles produced by modern diesel engines. Unfortunately, most cars equipped with DPF will experience various problems as a result of the device malfunctioning. Problems include the DPF failing to carry out regeneration properly and clogging up. Replacement can be expensive (in some cases in excess of £1000), our DPF cleaning in Wychbold aims to avoid costly DPF replacements.
SIGNS OF A CLOGGED DPF
Although signs of a clogged DPF are very straightforward most drivers are usually clueless about them. In most vehicles when the DPF is becoming clogged with soot and requires regeneration the DPF warning light illuminates. If your vehicle fails to regenerate properly and your DPF is clogged you will be treated to an additional warning light on your dashboard.
However, not all cars will give you any indication that the DPF is clogged and failing to regenerate. This could be down to a multitude of things such as a blocked sensor or an obscure error code is generated that can only be seen with specialist diagnostic hardware.
Additional signs that your DPF is clogged include:
- The vehicle goes into limp mode
- Loss of power
- Failing of DPF regeneration
- Constant attempts to do regeneration
- Oil level increasing
- Increase in fuel consumption
- Vehicle smokes excessively
- Strong smell of diesel
If you suffer from a clogged DPF but continue to drive, not only do you risk damaging the filter but also the Turbo. This can potentially attract a repair cost of upwards of £3000.
REASONS FOR DPF CLOGGING
As detailed above, a DPF becomes blocked; due to excessive soot particles blocking off the filter. If your vehicle suffers from DPF clogging, it can be a result of various reasons such as:
- Poor driving style
- Lots of short journeys
- Preventing the vehicle reach parameters required for regeneration
- Failure of a component or sensor required for successful regeneration
