What is DPF?

If you drive a diesel vehicle, then the odds are good that you are driving around with a Diesel Particulate Filter installed, whether you know it or not. This filter, often abbreviated to DPF, is an essential part of any diesel vehicle. Comparable to a catalytic converter in petrol engines, it collects and contains the soot that is a by-product of a working diesel engine. This makes your emissions cleaner and more environmentally friendly and the DPF is installed as standard in most modern diesel engines.

When does my car need DPF cleaning?
As with any filter, your DPF can get clogged up over time simply through regular use. When this happens it can cause serious issues with your car’s overall performance and particularly its emissions. Some cars will have a DPF warning light, which is a clear sign that a thorough DPF cleaning is in order, but some older models do not. If you find that you’re experiencing loss of power, poor fuel economy, or that your cooling fans appear to be running more than normal, you may need to consider a DPF cleaning.
What is the alternative?
The only real alternative to a DPF cleaning is to install a whole new filter. Since this can easily run into thousands of pounds to do so, simply cleaning the filter is a preferred choice in almost every case.

Guaranteed service
Our DPF cleaning service is performed at a fixed rate – the price you see is the price you pay. Likewise, any filter that we clean is guaranteed to work once we replace it in your vehicle. In the unlikely event that we are unable to clean the filter due to too much corrosion or blockage, we will knock the price of your DPF cleaning off any replacement filter you need to have installed.
