Our DPF removal service will disable the DPF function along with all the DPF sensors and DPF regeneration, the DPF can then be removed completely from the exhaust without any complications. Disabling the DPF system is done electronically via reprogramming the engine control unit.
Removing the DPF from your vehicle is not only a cost effective repair solution but it also has the following advantages:
- Increased performance
- Increased efficiency (MPG)
- Less turbo lag
- Reduced maintenance costs
- Less down time from regenerations
What is DPF or FAP?
DPF (Diesel particulate filter) or FAP (Filtre A Particules) is a trap in the exhaust designed to catch diesel particles or soot from the exhaust gases of a diesel engine. Once the diesel particles are collected in the filter they can be burnt off when a temperature of around 600 degrees c has been reached this is the burning point of the particles, if this temperature is not reached the ECU will put it in to regeneration mode this alters injection timing to raise the temperature in the exhaust to help burn the particles. Unfortunately these filters can get blocked and cause issues, DPF sensors can also fail and result in the ECU thinking the exhaust is blocked when it isn’t or vice versa. Repair costs can be very expensive with some DPF’s costing in excess of £2000 so a cost effective solution would be to remove the DPF and remove the function from the ECU Software we can do this on most vehicles including tractors and plant machinery for more information please contact us with your vehicle details.
