Diesel Particulate Filter – DPF Cleaning

Merlin Auto Services now have the very latest DPF Cleaning equipment at our disposal

Our diagnostic equipment allows us to check the condition of your DPF to prescribe the most beneficial treatment to remove the blockage and prevent diesel particulate filter problems from occurring in the near future. We have 3 different processes which can efficiently unblock DPF’s. The recommended process will be advised before the work is carried out.


What Is A DPF?
Put simply, a DPF sits within a vehicle’s exhaust system. The Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) is designed to hold the soot/diesel particles to reduce harmful emissions.


Why Do DPF Problems Arise?
DPF’s will always get blocked on diesel vehicles. DPF’s are not always able to regenerate when needed, therefore become blocked. This can be for a variety of reasons, such as driving style, vehicle conditions, or due to technical faults.

As the DPF builds up with soot and ash over time, it will become blocked with various warning signs appearing. This includes black smoke coming from your vehicle exhaust, the DPF warning light appearing on your dashboard, and more.

If you do not get the problem fixed the vehicle’s performance will decrease rapidly, resulting in your vehicle going into “limp mode” and may therefore become unusable until the DPF is unblocked.
