DPF, or diesel particulate filter is a component that minimises the release of particulates or soot (elemental carbon) created as a by-product of the fuel used, particularly diesel.
Prolonged deposition of soot in a DPF can block it. If you face such situations, bring your vehicle down to Qazi Auto Repairs. We are the leading auto garage for DPF regeneration Nottingham. Our state-of-the-art equipment ensures complete removal of soot from your car’s DPF.
What is the importance of a DPF?
Diesel emissions are significantly more harmful to the environment compared to petrol. The DPF prevents the emissions of soot, produced by diesel combustion, into the environment.
The Euro 5 emission standards announced in 2009 makes diesel particulate filters mandatory in all diesel vehicles.
Can a damaged DPF be replaced?
Yes, a diesel particulate filter can be replaced. The cost of a new DPF can range between £1,000 and £3,500.
However, driving a car or van without a DPF is against the law in the UK and can pose a fine of up to £1,000 or £2,500, respectively.
In 2018, the MOT test was made more stringent to ensure that diesel car owners cannot bypass this mandate.
For this reason, it is necessary to have the diesel particulate filter gutted and ensure you don’t have to replace it. You can reach out to us for DPF cleaning Nottingham when you see the symptoms of the DPF being blocked.
