If you have a modern diesel car, it almost certainly has a Diesel Particulate Filter. This is a complex component designed to trap harmful pollutants before they can escape into the atmosphere. However, to keep working efficiently, they need to be cleaned through a process called Diesel Particulate Regeneration. Pitairlie Garage have the skilled technicians and equipment necessary to fully clean your filters, without replacing them.
Pitairlie Garage can perform a complete clean of your Diesel Particulate Filter, renewing it without expensive replacement. Part of this process is Diesel Particulate Regeneration, which is a highly technical process which involves taking parts of your diesel particulate filter up to more than 600 degrees. That sounds extreme, but it is a normal part of the maintenance of modern diesel vehicles and is required for your vehicle to run cleanly and efficiently.
Your car’s Diesel Particulate Filter traps harmful pollutants so that they are not released into the environment and it is a legal requirement that it regenerates effectively in order to pass your MOT emissions test.
Problems such as clogging or failing to regenerate correctly occur with the DPF and can be partly caused by the age or mileage of the vehicle or even the way that it has been driven. If your DPF light comes on, it could mean that your DPF is clogged and not regenerating which could lead to first, failing your MOT and second, serious damage, not just of the filter but also your car’s turbo. At Pitairlie Garage we can undertake DPF cleaning on any make or model of car saving you money on a costly DPF replacement.
