Are you having problems with your Diesel Particulate Filter? Are you facing expensive repair costs to replace the DPF? Tired of poor MPG when the DPF is regenerating? Want to remove the DPF from your vehicle?
What does the DPF do?
DPF is an abbreviation for Diesel Particulate Filter and on some French manufacturer vehicles it is also known as a FAP or “filtre à particules”.
A DPF is equipped to most modern diesel engines to take out particles from the exhaust gases in order to meet various emission standards throughout the world. During general driving the filter fills up with carbon particles and once it reaches a certain level, usually around 30% – 40% the ECU should cause the engine to run with a higher exhaust temperature to burn any collected particles and turn them into soot. This is known as the DPF regeneration cycle. The problems arise because the ECU fails to initiate regeneration mode due to the DPF being so blocked that a regeneration may cause engine damage.
What is the process?
- Full engine management diagnostic check
- DPF software removed from the ECU
- Physical removal of DPF from the exhaust
- Another diagnostic check
- Road test
