Category: DPF Issues
If you are having DPF issues with
a) DPF regenerating too often
b) DPF lights coming on and off frequently
c) DPF lights and/or engine lights on permanently
Then we can help.
If the DPF can still successfully regenerate then an Engine Carbon Clean to clean up the source of the soot (combustion chamber) will reduce the soot levels entering the DPF and in turn the frequency of regeneration. DPF will last longer and you will save fuel with fewer regenerations.
If the DPF lights are coming on then a diagnostics is essential to understand why. Many times the DPF will be struggling to regenerate or regeneration will be disabled due to a faulty sensor or component. In this instance no matter of driving will allow regeneration and will lead to a blocked DPF. Once diagnosed then the faulty parts can be rectified and regeneration can work as it should.
If the DPF back pressure is already too high then even with fixing the underlying issues will still not allow regeneration. We can perform a DPF Clean is a last resort option to unblock a DPF.
