diesel particulate filter Explained

To enable the car manufacturers to make diesel engines cleaner. Hence, they have to fit a DPF. This was introduced for diesel engined cars registered from 2009. The main aim of these filters is to further reduce diesel particulates by as much as 80%. Hence, this will be to satisfy the Euro 5 standard when it comes into force.

We here at Pellon Autocentre in Halifax find that problems occur with blocked filters. Therefore, we are always attending to cars with warning light.Thus, to show up a blocked DPF. Diesel Particulate filters (DPF) or ‘traps’. Of course are there to catch or trap many of the bits of soot that the diesel engines tend to give off. This obviously makes the car more environmental friendly. As with any filter they have to be emptied regularly to maintain performance. For a DPF this process is called ‘regeneration’ – the collected soot is burnt off at very high temperature this  leaves only a tiny ash residue.
