DPFs Diagnosing & Testing

DPFs are the most misunderstood component of the modern diesel vehicle

This one hour recorded webinar was delivered live to Motor Trade Association Queensland Members.

In this training session Clinton demonstrates how the DPF can be utilised as a diagnostic tool - reducing the misdiagnosis of fault codes.

Our objective is to breakdown misconceptions of the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF), reduce the unnecessary removal and replacement of the emission control systems.

This course will cover:

  • DPF function and operation
  • Avoiding misdiagnosis of DPF related fault codes
  • Why a force regeneration is not diagnosing the fault
  • Explanation of soot and ash count
  • Common causes of DPF faults and failures
  • Testing a DPF without the scan tool
  • Case study- Mitsubishi Triton P1498 DPF overloading fault video diagnosis


Downloadable booklet & professional development certificate.

Course access for one week - an email reminder will be sent one day prior to course expiry.

This training is complimentary to Diesel Help Members.
