Having issues with your DPF?

Your DPF (diesel particulate filter) is designed to capture and store soot from the exhaust so that diesel car emissions can be effectively reduced. However, their capacity is limited. This means that all of the trapped soot must be burned off so that the DPF can be regenerated and the contents emptied. The process of regeneration burns off all the excess soot that has been deposited in the filter cleanly, thus reducing the harmful emissions from the exhaust, protecting both your vehicle and the environment simultaneously.

Whilst a blocked DPF is a problem for you – for us it is a symptom.

DPFs block due to other problems and cleaning is not enough, you need the problem professionally identified and rectified, if not done correctly the unit will simply block again after cleaning.

Once the issue has been resolved, if necessary, the clean will be done. It is possible that resolution of the problem may enable the vehicle to “regenerate” (self-clean), and your vehicle is back up and running without the cleaning service and the blockage will not reoccur.

If you are experiencing problems with your DPF, have your vehicle’s problems diagnosed by Fuel Swap today.

What to do when your DPF light stays on?

1. Go for a long drive.

When the DPF light has become illuminated, it’s telling you that ‘passive regeneration’ has failed and that you need to actively regenerate the diesel particulate filter.

You can do this by increasing your speed to more than 80kph for between 15 and 20 minutes. This should allow the exhaust to reach sufficiently high temperatures to burn the soot and clear the DPF filter.

During the regeneration, you may notice things like your engine making an unusual noise, a slightly pungent smell coming from the exhaust and an increase in your fuel consumption. This should all return to normal once the active regeneration process has been completed. You should also see the DPF light go out.

If you cannot maintain a speed of more than 80kph for long enough to allow the regeneration process to complete, the soot will continue to build up in your DPF filter and your DPF warning light will remain on until you have the problem fixed.
