Most people don’t know much about the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). It’s a little known component, but one that needs your attention. If not, you could find yourself facing a large bill for repairs at a later date. They’ve been a standard fitting on all Diesel vehicles since 2009. And, since then, we’ve been fixing them every day.
If you’re unsure about your DPF, don’t worry. We’re here to help you out. And, at a great Yorkshire price.
What is a DPF?
A Diesel Particulate Filter traps soot. It filters and stores exhaust soot, helping to reduce emissions and stop plumes of embarrassing, potentially expensive, smoke from billowing out of your exhaust.
The reason your DPF is there: to pass tight emission control tests imposed by Euro regulations.
Why is my DPF warning light on?
Your DPF light is there to alert you that you could have some serious problems on your hands. So, it’s time to get your vehicle inspected quickly.
The next stage is a flashing light. Without immediate attention that could mean expensive repairs. So, don’t let it get to that. If your DPF light is on, get in touch and our technicians will keep costs to a minimum.
If my DPF light is on do I need a new DPF?
Probably not. An honest assessment generally suggests your Diesel Particulate Filter only needs cleaning, which can save you £100s in unnecessary replacements.
But, if you do leave it, you could easily face having to buy expensive components. It’s that serious.
I’ve had my DPF cleaned and the light is back on?
Most of the time, your DPF light means your DPF system needs evaluating. However, on rare occasions, it can also highlight other issues too, such as a failed exhaust gas recirculation valve or problems with your injection system.
The safest, cheapest and easiest way to make sure your car is running correctly is to bring it to Monksbridge Garage Dinnington.
How much is a DPF clean?
To have your whole Diesel Particulate Filter cleaned, it’s just £180.
And, because we only use specialist DPF cleaning equipment, it usually takes no longer than 2 hours. Just enough time for lunch out.
