DIESEL PARTICULATE FILTER REMOVAL | DPF REMOVAL

 WHAT IS A DPF?


A DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) also known as FAP on some French vehicles, is a device fitted to the exhaust system of modern diesel vehicles.   Being a filter, its job is to capture and store soot particles produced during the engine combustion process from entering the atmosphere, then every so many miles the engine will enter a regeneration cycle which is supposed to clean the filter by burning the soot and turning it into ash.  


Just like any type of filter a Particulate Filter needs to be cleaned regularly to function properly as they usually remove 85% or more of the soot and approaching 100% under certain conditions. With DPF’s this is done by a process known as Regeneration. Regeneration should be an automatic process taking place in the normal use of your vehicle you may have noticed this in the form of a blast of white smoke form the exhaust on occasions.


However, the filter will ineveitably clog up at some point although car manufactorers claim that this would take a very long time. From experience, we know that in a city environment with heavy traffic confdtions, this could happen even within a year of purchasing a brand new vehicle. 


Since adding the DPF to the exhaust system affects performance and fuel economy, people are questioning why the UK government chose to make this technology a requirement when it’s not even used in many parts of the world. Given that diesel available in the UK is all ultra low sulphur there’s not nearly as much pollutant matter produced by diesel engines. The addition of a diesel particulate filter has a tendency to make considerably more issues than it is designed to fix.


If left unattended this will result in a blocked DPF which can ultimately cause very expensive damage to other engine components. 


                                             WHAT ARE OUR OPTIONS?

If your DPF warning light or Anti-Pollution warning is on, please do not ignore it. Get professional advice, consider your options carefully as leaving it will result in much more additional repair bills (which can be very costly.) and it can be dangerous.


What we at GND Motors can do is:


When your DPF warning lights has illuminated your DPF will already be significantly blocked. Forced regeneration by a garage is not likely to cure the problem. So at this stage  we can change the software in your ECU so that your DPF can be safely and properly removed from the vehicle without logging any fault and or going into limp mode. We do this process professionally and the ECU will never try to generate again.


Benefits of Diesel Particulate Filter removal are:

•Better performance
•Better MPG
•Avoiding expensive repair costs
