At Euro Clutch & Gearbox Centre, we provide professional, reliable, and high quality Diesel Particulate Filter cleaning, repairs and replacements. No matter the make or model of your vehicle, all diesel engines manufactured after 2008 will have a DPF installed.
A DPF, or Diesel Particulate Filter, fitted in the exhaust system, to catch any particles such as carbon and other pieces of dirt. The DPF reduces emissions and ensures these pieces are not released into the atmosphere. The overall safety of the car is dependent on the condition of your DPF. In order for your DPF to run smoothly at all time, regular maintenance and cleaning are necessary. It is easy for soot and debris to build up in the filter system. These blockages can then cause further problems in the engine and electrical systems. There are a number of warning signs that a blockage has occurred or a repair is needed. These include:
Engine Checklight Appears
Loss of Power
Smoke from the Exhaust
Poor Fuel Consumption
As DPF specialists, the Euro Clutch team will quickly and correctly identify the cause of the problems and ensure the necessary repair works, cleaning, or replacement is carried out. We have invested in the latest equipment and technology that allows us to provide high quality DPF services to our customers. Our highly qualified and experienced mechanics will have your car back on the road as quickly as possible with a perfectly working diesel particulate filter.
Can the DPF be removed?
Removing the Diesel Particulate Filter from your vehicle is illegal. The DPF is a safety requirement under European law and as such, it cannot be removed. The only way to ensure a functioning DPF is to have regular maintenance and cleaning carried out.
How often should a DPF be cleaned?
Similar to vehicle servicing and brake checks, your DPF should be cleaned at least once a year. This will prevent blockages and the need for costly repairs. If properly maintained the diesel particulate filter will last the lifetime of the car.
How much does a DPF repair cost?
The cost of repairing a diesel particulate filter will depend on the make and model of your vehicle, the extent of the repair works, and if a replacement is required. For a free quote, you can contact Euro Clutch directly
