Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) is an eco-friendly component fitted to the exhaust to trap soot and reduce emissions. The DPF usually cleans itself when the engine runs at high speeds – a process called regeneration that takes place automatically on longer motorway-type runs when the exhaust temperature is high.
If the majority of journeys are short and stop/start,the regeneration process may not complete and a warning light will illuminate to show that the DPF is partially blocked.
The DPF must then be cleared; this is easily done with a DPF and fuel system clean at your regular service interval to ensure both the DPF and the fuel system are cleaned to provide maximum efficiency.
Regular filter cleaning will also help to:
