Diesel Particulate Filter
What is an DPF Solutions?
A DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) also known as FAP on some French vehicles, is a device fitted to the exhaust system of modern diesel vehicles to reduce emissions and meet European emission standards. It does this by trapping Soot from the exhaust gasses as they flow out of the exhaust.
Common ways to fix your DPF
If your DPF or Anti-Pollution warning is on the dash, do not ignore it – it will cost you much more in additional repair bills and can be dangerous. Forced regeneration by a garage or a “blast down the motorway” is not likely to cure the problem, these only work as preventative maintenance. To fix the problem, you have these options:
DPF Regeneration – Tab Automotive can offer a regeneration service.
Replacement – Tab Automotive can replace the DPF, normally at a fraction of the main dealer cost.
Cleaning – Tab Automotive offer a DPF cleaning service.
Delete Recalibration – If you have had your DPF removed, we may be able to recalibrate your vehicles ECU to stop your engine going into limp-safe mode and clear the DPF warning light.
DPF Solution benefits
You can also benefit by having a performance remap alongside the DPF remap, which would see better improvements than just the DPF Removal itself. The advantages of DPF removal are as follows:
- No expensive DPF replacement costs.
- No more limp modes when the vehicle decides to do a forced regeneration.
- Improved MPG due to the removal of an air restriction allowing the engine to breather better.
- You must be aware of the legal implications of this.
