Choose PR Autos, for DPF cleaning in West Bromwich, our expert mechanics can carry out full diagnostics, reading fault codes and DPF service data to identify soot content and correct the operation of specific sensors. This will eliminate a sensor-related fault to correctly determine whether a DPF requires regeneration.
Diesel produces lots of soot (particulate matter) that can cause respiratory problems and contribute to the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Modern diesel cars (since 2009) have to be fitted with a DPF in the exhaust to stop this soot from passing into the atmosphere. The aim is to cut 80% in particle emissions but the technology’s not without problems.
The collected soot is burnt off, leaving only a tiny ash residue. A DPF if used correctly should be good for well over 100,000 miles.
