Diesel particulate filter (DPF)

If you own a diesel car then you are likely to have a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). Over time, these soot-removing filters become clogged, and should be cleaned periodically to avoid costly repairs.

Diesel Particulate Filters (DPFs) were introduced to meet changes in emissions regulations, and are now fitted to most modern diesel vehicles. DPFs are designed to remove soot build-up as you drive. Any diesel car can be susceptible to soot build-up, especially those mainly driven around town or on short or low speed journeys. Regular DPF cleaning is the best way to avoid costly repairs.

Manufacturers recommend that your clean your DPF filters every 6 months. However, this depends on your driving style, mileage and type of car you drive.

Our DPF experts offer a maintenance treatment designed to keep your engine free from soot build-up.
