- Why does my diesel vehicle have a DPF filter?
- Why is my engine warning light on?
- What happens if I continue to ignore the warning light?
- How do I resolve this?
- How often should the DPF filter be cleaned?
- Should I remove my DPF to save money and hassle?
My car’s engine warning light was flashing and lost it’s power day by day. I brought it to the Supreme DPF Cleaning. The technicians checked and told me that my car’s dpf is too full of ash and no longer regenerating properly. They have cleaned the DPF with their new generation machines. Now, it is like the first day of my car.Natalie Duncan / Supermarket A3
The engine management light came on my car. Supreme Dpf technicians ran a diagnostics and the problem is with the diesel particulate filter - DPF. It is completely cleaned with the machines. In addition, they gave me a before - after report, shows my dpf situation. They also remap my car which increase the power while improving the economy. I strongly recommend the services.John Richard / Richard's Ltd.
The DPF on my BMW 5 is blocked and warning light flashes. The technicians checked and the dpf is not actively regenerating, filling up with soot rather than with ash. It is cleaned in 1 hour and the fuel consumption decreased after cleaning. Dpf cleaning is the right solution to get better results, otherwise I have to bought a new one.David Rooney / Simtel Electronics
Jeep Patriot 2.2 CRD
I have owned this car since new and even when everything was running at its best the cars performance was erring on the disappointing side... Just a run of the mill, boring, bog standard motor who according to a dear friend ‘possessed no redeeming features whatsoever.’
Well, that was perhaps a year ago before the cars DPF issues began to replace ‘no redeeming features’ with a burning desire to see the thing OXO cubed at the local scrapyard even though it had only covered 32,000 miles.
My main dealer was simply unable to help with the problem. Flushing the DPF for £300 slightly improved matters for a couple of weeks; then back to square one with engine light back on followed quickly by the dreaded ‘limp home mode’.
So, looking at the cost of replacing this troublesome device / devices (about the same as an engine replacement believe it or not) I found Mr. Erol Icoz within ‘limp home’ range (Bromley) and tootled over at about 20 mph in a cloud of white smoke for a chat.
Erol performed a preliminary check on the car and said ‘Ah yes, not one DPF but two’ (strangely it was always singular with my main dealer).
Anyway, Erol sat me down and described in great detail what they were going to do to resolve this seemingly terminal issue and that for the very agreeable quote to sort it would throw in a ‘Quantum blue’ re-map to boot.
I’d not heard a great deal about these electronic enhancements but when Erol phoned a day earlier than expected and said I had ‘an Italian prancing horse’ ready to be collected I must admit to being a little sceptical.
I dunno if I’m over egging it here but on the test drive, with Erol in the passenger seat I was questioning that the little 2.2 had not been replaced with Chrysler’s 6.1 V8 hemi...(the Jeep SRT 8, a car I’ve hankered after for quite a while...and going to wait a lot longer now!)
Many thanks to Erol. Truly has put a smile back on my face along with solving a near technical right off issue with aplomb.Ian / Beckenham
