A DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) clean refers to the process of cleaning or regenerating a DPF in a diesel-powered vehicle. The DPF is designed to trap and remove soot and particulate matter from the exhaust gases to reduce emissions. Over time, these particles can build up in the filter, affecting its performance.

What is a DPF Clean?
DPF Investigation and Clean with Engine Carbon Clean
- DIAGNOSE the issue, identify any underlying cause of a failure to regenerate.
- PERFORM an advanced DPF clean, if required.
Several DPF issues we see do not require a DPF Clean* – the vast majority require the underlying cause of the issue (for example- sensor, thermostat, glow plug, component) diagnosing, replacing and then natural regeneration will reoccur.
Those that do require a DPF Clean can experience the following benefits:
Restored Fuel Efficiency
A clean DPF allows for better engine performance and fuel efficiency since a clogged filter can restrict exhaust flow and reduce engine power.
A properly functioning DPF effectively reduces harmful particulate emissions from diesel engines, contributing to cleaner air and compliance with emissions regulations.
Extended DPF Lifespan
Regular cleaning can help extend the life of the DPF by preventing excessive soot and ash buildup, reducing the need for costly replacements.
Restored Engine Performance
A clean DPF ensures that the engine operates at its optimal performance levels, minimising issues like reduced power and engine deterioration.
Lower Maintenance Costs
Cleaning the DPF is often more cost-effective than replacing it, helping to reduce maintenance expenses for diesel vehicle owners.
Regular maintenance, including DPF cleaning, can contribute to the overall longevity and reliability of a diesel engine.
* Please note that ‘forced’ regenerations are typically not a solution to DPF issues, hence we do not perform them unnecessarily. Far better to diagnose and fix the underlying issue.
Not all vehicles are suitable for working on at the roadside depending upon the layout of the DPF pipework. Arrangements may need to be made to perform the service at a garage of your choice.

“Had my BMW 320d and a friend’s 330i done today, what a fantastic service from start to finish…took the 320d for a quick drive and noticed a more responsive feel and better revving, and quieter too. Overall an excellent service, highly recommend.”
