DPF Replacement and Diagnostics

DPF Removal illegal as of February 2014...

Here at Cargo 4 Service Ltd, Stoke on Trent and Staffordshire, Newcastle Under Lyme and Nantwich we are specialists in DPF replacement & repair.

Are you having problems with your Diesel Particulate Filter? Are you facing some very expensive repairs?

Most vehicles fitted with a DPF will need to have it replaced at some point as part of the service schedule if it has not already become overloaded in the meantime.

Tests for diesel cars and lorries are to be tightened up to ensure vehicles have a critical exhaust filter if one had originally been fitted as standard, Roads Minister Robert Goodwill has announced.

Garages and testing stations will be required check for a diesel particulate filter (DPF) in the inspection of the exhaust system as part of the MOT test (or annual test for heavy vehicles) from February 2014.

If you drive a car equipped with a DPF Filter "Diesel Particulate Filter" you need to make sure you are allowing it to regenerate on a fairly regular basis.

We provide a cleaning service, diagnostics and replacement.

To achieve regeneration the exhaust system has to get up to a certain temperature usually 500- 650C (This might vary from car to car and system to system) and you will only be able to do this if you drive for a certain amount of time, at a certain rev level (see your vehicles hand book for specific instructions)

People that drive diesels, usually do so to achieve better MPG and therefore lower overall running costs, but by definition tend to drive at low speeds and often short journeys.
