A Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) collects harmful particles that are produced as a by-product of burning diesel fuel; these soot particles collect in the filter over time.
'Passive Regenration' is where a diesel engine automatically burns off these soot particles, although all diesel engines will suffer from a build up of soot and ash particles over time , resulting a blocked DPF.
Running a vehicle with a blocked DPF causes reduced performance and expensive running costs, and will ultimately lead to expensive engine damage.
Restore Your DPF To 'Like New'
Your DPF is likely to have a blockage issue if you notice any of the following signs:
The price for DPF cleaning is £250 + VAT, which includes non-corrrosive chemical treatment, and pressurised flushing of the filter, for between 3 hours and 8 hours
The DPF needs to be removed before the cleaning proccess begins, and refitted afterwards - labour for this is typically under 2 hours, and is in addition to the cleaning price above.
Your vehicle might have gone into 'Limp Home' or 'Restricted Performance' mode, or you might otherwise be unable to get it to us.
We offer a Collect-Fix-Return service - we will collect your vehicle from in and around the Greater Manchester area, thoroughly clean your DPF, and return it within 2 days (trpically one day).
