DPF removal Manchester


A DPF (Diesel particulate filter) or FAP (Filter A Particles) is a device designed to remove diesel particles or soot from the exhaust gas of a diesel engine. It basically traps the diesel particles (carbon deposits) in the system and once enough back pressure has been produced the vehicles ECU will carry out a "regeneration" cycle where these carbon particles are burnt and blown out of the system and through the exhaust.


Why remove the DPF?


Whilst in theory the DPF system is a great idea, it only operates correctly and without fault in certain, specific conditions. Unfortunately most DPF systems get blocked and this causes the vehicle to fault and run in limp mode, often restricted to 30mpg and halving the mpg. Its often the low mileage and short journey drivers who get hit the hardest as the DPF system does not build enough back pressure to regenerate and clear the carbon particles. It's worth noting though that it can happen to anyone.

DPF replacement is an expensive problem and so delete software and tuning is to many people the only cost effective, permanent solution. Performance Blue offer a full range of DPF removal, DPF delete, and DPF problem solving services at a very competitive price. Repair costs can be very expensive with some DPF systems costing over £3000.00 and the problem can occur as frequently as every 12 months. The filter is not a requirement for MOT test so one solution which is becoming ever more popular is to remove the DPF and tune the vehicles to accept the amended values as correct - this is known as DPF removal or DPF deletion (even though we technically don't delete the system from the ECU, but simply tell it the values it's reading are correct). Many tuners who buy in files from the internet or are resellers are not aware this is what is referred to as a DPF 'delete' however we are experts in this field.
