Diesel Particulate Filter
A Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) is a filter designed to capture and store soot to keep the emissions to a minimum and then a process called regeneration will occur to burn off the excess soot in the filter and reduce the harmful emissions.
This process is usually done when the exhaust is at a high temperature on motorways, it injects extra fuel into the engine to raise the exhaust temperature and trigger the regeneration process.
What is a DPF?
This process is usually done when the exhaust is at a high temperature on motorways, it injects extra fuel into the engine to raise the exhaust temperature and trigger the regeneration process. Constant short journeys or around town driving doesn’t allow this process to happen and can lead to the filter getting blocked which will require cleaning out, or in some cases replacement.
With our sophisticated computers we can check the state of your DPF and carry out a forced regeneration to clean the filter and get you back on the road.
The safest, cheapest and easiest way to make sure your car is running correctly is to bring it to Ox-In-Flames.
