What is a DPF?

The Diesel Particulate Filter is in the exhaust system of all diesel-powered cars sold new since 2009. It is a vital component that is designed to enable cars to pass increasingly tough emissions legislation. The DPF's job is to trap the particles that are caused by the compression-ignition combustion process and thereby prevent harmful smoke from being pumped into the atmosphere.

How does it work?

Like any filter, the DPF will gradually get clogged with the soot that it traps. However, the car is designed to clean it by heating this residue up, turning it to ash and expelling it. This happens about every 480 kilometers, either when you travel at motorway speed, or because the Engine Control Unit initiates what's known as regeneration by raising exhaust temperatures artificially.

What to do about it?

When a DPF filter is clogged, the vehicle's performance suffers dramatically. This leaves the owner with two choices replace the DFS at considerable cost or service the unit without removing it from the vehicle with the Pro-Line Cleaning Kit.
