Maintaining your DPF vehicle

There’s a lot of smoke and mirrors around the subject of Diesel Particulate Filters.

A Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) is an emission reduction filter that under certain laws throughout the world, must be fitted to diesel vehicles.

It is used to remove deadly gases and harmful particles produced from diesel exhaust fumes. The gases can form due to poor servicing, poor quality fuel and driving habits.

The DPF is designed to capture these particles and then be regenerated, or cleaned, via high-temperature burns. It is when this regeneration process does not happen, and the filter becomes clogged, that problems can arise. The diesel particulate filter has been portrayed as a sophisticated and expensive component to be replaced, which in my experience is not true.

When diagnosed, and maintained correctly, replacement can be avoided.
