Is your DPF warning light flashing at you?
Your DPF may be blocked!
Put simply, a DPF sits within a vehicle’s exhaust system. The Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) is designed to hold the soot/diesel particles to reduce harmful emissions.
DPF’s will always get blocked on diesel vehicles. DPF’s are not always able to regenerate when needed, therefore become blocked. This can be for a variety of reasons, such as driving style, vehicle conditions, or due to technical faults.
As the DPF builds up with soot and ash over time, it will become blocked with various warning signs appearing. This includes black smoke coming from your vehicle exhaust, the DPF warning light appearing on your dashboard, and more.
If you do not get the problem fixed the vehicle’s performance will decrease rapidly, resulting in your vehicle going into “limp mode” and may therefore become unusable until the DPF is unblocked.
How we clean a blocked DPF…
Selecting the Right Treatment
A simple Oxyhydrogen engine treatment has been proven to have a regenerative effect on DPFs. By raising the temperature of the exhaust gasses, we can burn out most of the soot built up in your diesel particulate filter. This helps for partial blockages and can be carried out without having to dismantle the DPF from your vehicle. For filters with a more severe blockage we would advise carrying out a restoration solution.
Similar to the On Car DPF Clean option using a Oxyhydrogen Engine Treatment, this can be administered without having to remove the filter. All DPF regenerations will leave ash in the filter when the soot burns and this will eventually lead to a serious blockage. For this we recommend a reconditioning service.
We can guarantee near 100% restoration of even the most blocked DPFs and removal of all soot and ash with off-car DPF cleaning. This procedure requires the removal of your DPF and on average takes around 2-4 hours. In cases like this we’d refer you to a local DPF specialist centre.
