DPF & Turbo Boost Test Kit

$ 333.53

To avoid misdiagnosis and confirm the system is operating within specification, connecting an analogue gauge will provide accurate readings to compare with scan tool data.

DPF & turbo boost kit is a valuable diagnostic test as the two components often influence each other. For example if the DPF blocks, a turbo will not be able to produce adequate boost pressure. whilst in the event of a turbo failure a DPF blockage may occur as a result.

The DPF Test

Use this test when a DPF fault or related codes are present, DPF light illuminating or flashing, the vehicle is experiencing performance issues.

The Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) uses sensors to monitor its status to ensure it is operating correctly. When conditions are not met, the computer informs the operator with a DPF warning lamp.

One of these sensors monitor differential exhaust pressure before and after the DPF filter. The sensor is exposed to extreme elements including heat, carbon and condensation. This may lead to a failure of the differential pressure sensor by sending false data to the ECU. This can trigger DPF related fault codes which can result in the unnecessary replacement of the DPF.

To avoid misdiagnosis and confirm the system is operating within specification, connecting an analogue gauge with the differential pressure sensor will provide an accurate reading.

The Turbo Boost Test

Diagnosing turbo faults and failures can be difficult without accurate data. This diagnostic kit is used to confirm the turbo boost pressure, also known as Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP). By using an analogue gauge, the technician can clarify and compare the results to the electronic data being viewed on the scan tool.

MAP sensors are a vulnerable component which are exposed to extreme conditions including high temperatures, condensation, oil, carbon, dust, and vibration. This can damage the MAP sensor triggering fault codes resulting in performance issues or derating the engine. 

This tool prevents misdiagnosis or unnecessary replacement of components.
