DPF AND REMAP PACKAGES AVAILABLE
THE PROBLEM WITH DPF
With the constant demand to meet emissions regulations diesel engine vehicles are now fitted with a diesel particulate filter (DPF) which is designed to remove particulates in emissions. Like any filter, it is imperative that the DPF is clean and clear in order to work efficiently. The issue with DPF filters is, unless the vehicle is consistently running at its optimum engine temperature (i.e. the vehicle is regularly used for long journeys) they are often unable to clear themselves meaning they are prone to becoming blocked with a build-up of soot and particulates rendering them inefficient. An inefficient DPF negatively affects performance, economy and (ironically) emissions.
The even bigger issue for the vehicle owner is that, to replace the DPF filter can often cost over £1000. As if this wasn’t enough of an issue, the DPF is considered to be a ‘wear and tear’ item and is subsequently not covered by warranty.
MY DPF IS FAILING… WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS?
As with any wear and tear item, you can replace the DPF with one from the manufacturer, but as stated above this can cost over £1000. Not ideal.
You can also replace the DPF with a generic aftermarket part, but these are often difficult to fit and rarely last as long, so would require replacing again much sooner. Also not ideal.
