In 2016 I bought a Vauxhall Zafira diesel automatic, with a DPF filter fitted as standard. As I was driving the car from Southampton to Bristol the engine glow plug light began flashing. Different cars will illuminate different warning lights as you can see in the image below. I was advised by cleaning company that alternative and non OED parts will be inferior and not made from silicone carbide resulting in the necessary heat levels needed for regen not being achieved.

Costs for this serve seem to vary but in most cases it is much cheaper than a replacement filter and not illegal like DPF removal (more on that below).

How to unblock almost any DPF Filter

Like any other filter, its mechanism requires draining. This is called regeneration, and there are three types: passive, active and forced. Passive regeneration A close runner up, Cataclean 6160 DPF cleaner offers exceptional performance at a really impressive price point. Cataclean claim it’ll reduce emissions but as much as 60%, a really impressive bit of kit. As well as protecting and cleaning the DPF, it’ll also protect and maintain catalytic converter systems. The key features of Cataclean 6160 DPF cleaner are; If you have a manual car I suggest second gear and a speed of around 50 mph or you can try third gear at around 80 mph. In most cases, this process can be carried out when the vehicle is stationary, but some models require on-road driving to be carried out. Over the last 10 years, air pollution has become a public health emergency and it is further alleged that particulate pollution is now responsible for around 50,000 avoidable deaths every year in the UK.

It’s my second Dacia and will be dealer serviced whilst under warranty. Thereafter I’ll self-service it using the correct Renault/Dacia fluids. I’ve no qualms about removing the EGR every 50k or so to clean it, and hope to be able to get towards 100k or so before I need to pull the dpf for an overnight bath in Wynns DPF cleaner and a gentle up-stream power wash, before replacing it. Founded in 1971, FoE is a federation of 74 groups from all over the world who are dedicated to saving the environment. One of their primary causes involves complaining to the ASA about the prevalence of adverts for DPF removal services.

This occurs during driving when the exhaust gas temperature is high enough, around 600°C, to burn off the soot as it passes through the filter. Active regeneration

Wait for five minutes before restarting your car to find that the DPF warning light, glow plug light or engine management light switched off! This will depend on the types of journey you do. If you drive on a motorway regularly for extended periods of time, you’ll need to use DPF cleaner less often than a typical “around town” driver. After using your DPF treatment head to the motorway and drive your vehicle at extremely high revs for at least 30 minutes. Since 2014, any diesel vehicle missing a diesel particulate filter will automatically fail its MOT. The Guardian newspaper revealed that thousands of drivers have been caught without a DPF fitted to their vehicles.

What is the recommended method for cleaning the particulate filter?

Chris Williams has chosen the BMW 530d and the Ford Ranger Raptor, an ideal two-car garage for doing nearly anything. Once you have run the car very hot for a sustained period pull over and immediately switch off the car. Campaigners are voicing complaints to the Advertising Standards Agency (ASA) regarding the spike in DPF filter removal. Such ads are deemed to be breaking the ASA code of conduct that condones practices that encourage anti-social behaviour. It’s alleged that such ads are exploiting a loophole in the law which clearly states that driving a diesel vehicle on the road without a DPF is an offence, but the actual removal of the filter is not.

I am hopeful that this cleaning is the best option and comfortable in knowing that my original dpf is a genuine part and will fit properly. Our 3.0 Bmw X3 Diesel E83 recently started giving problems and the cause was the dreaded Dpf. I tried three different makes of additive in the fuel tank but to no avail. I also attempted a manual regen. but again to no avail. I therefore had several choices. For active regeneration, the vehicle must have more than a quarter of a fuel tank; otherwise, the mechanism will not be activated. Forced regeneration This is done by applying the product through the pressure sensor tube or by removing an oxygen or temperature sensor and applying the product directly to the filter. What is the recommended method for cleaning the particulate filter? Preventive maintenance:If all else fails then do be very careful how you proceed. Removing the DPF from your exhaust system has become rather a hot topic with transport regulators across the globe, if you have the DPF filterremoved you encounter issues passing your MOT or vehicle inspection. Have you had a bad experience with a DPF? Did a DPF cleaning additive work for you? If so we’d like to hear from you – please leave details of your experience in the comments below. I have been doing forced regens on my 2007 Skoda Octavia 170 Vrs quite frequently over the past 2 years since not doing anywhere near the mileage that I used to do having been made redundant and changing jobs. Walking to work and only running out at weekends now. Previously doing 100’s of miles each week. If you only ever use your car for short journeys around town and never drive on a motorway, it’s recommended to use a DPF cleaner in every second or third tank of fuel, doing so will signifanctly reduce soot built up in the DPF.
