Diesel Particulate Filter Regeneration
Diesel Particulate Filter Regeneration in Dursley - Autocheck Car Care Centre
DPF Treatment for your vehicle’s fuel tank.
If you have a modern diesel car, it almost certainly has a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). This is a complex component designed to trap harmful pollutants before they can escape into the atmosphere. It catches exhaust gases and soot particles and so reducing the emissions from the exhaust.
As with all filters, they do eventually need to be cleaned to prevent them from becoming clogged up and they become less effective. If you regularly drive on the motorway, the sustained fast speeds will allow the regeneration process to take place in the filter and so it is cleaned by itself. However, if like most people, the majority of your driving takes place at lower speeds in towns, you’ll need to bring your car into Autocheck Car Care Centre so that our team of expert technicians can clean the filter and maintain the performance of your car.
At our workshop in Dursley, we use Fortron Diesel Particulate Filter Treatment (DPF) which is added to the fuel tank additive to treat this problem and it also acts as a preventative maintenance tool. By adding Fortron DPF Treatment to the vehicle fuel tank, it will greatly extend the length of time between each DPF cleaning treatment.
At Autocheck Car Care Centre, we have the skilled technicians and equipment necessary at our site in Dursley, to fully clean your filters, without replacing them. Get in touch today.
