Nearly all modern diesel cars are fitted with a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). If the car is used in ideal conditions these filters are capable of lasting in excess of 100,000 miles. These systems are designed to self clean or if thats isnt possible, the driver may get a warning indicating that higher speed driving is needed to allow the regeneration process to start. The regeneration process is usually done by the ECU raising exhaust temperatures above 600 deg celcius to burn off the soot.

However, with the wrong driving cycle or prolonged engine running faults, the filter can clog with soot causing engine management faults, loss of power and poor fuel economy.


The first step in DPF maintainence for us is to see why the filter is blocked. Whether its due to a running fault or just driving habits. If it is just needing a forced regeneration then we will carry it out first. However sometimes it can be caused by sensor failure and may need a new sensor.
