Diesel Particulate Filter Regeneration
Diesel Particulate Filter Regeneration in Erith - Apollo Autos
To improve the efficiency and exhaust gas emissions on modern diesel engines manufacturers fit Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF). These filters are designed to remove diesel particulate matter and sooty deposits from the exhaust gases of the engine and in so doing, prevent dirty black smoke from billowing out into the atmosphere.
Eventually however, the build-up of dirty deposits can cause the filter to get clogged and this can cause the car to become underpowered, and it can also lead to your car failing its MOT if emissions are not controlled. The filter can actually clean itself if the car is driven for long enough at motorway speeds for the filter regeneration process to take place. For most of us however, who use our cars mainly for urban driving, the solution to a blocked DPF is professional DPF cleaning by suitably qualified technicians, such as those at Apollo Autos.
Bring your car into Apollo Autos in Erith, for DPF cleaning – it’ll save you money in the long run.
