This service is only applicable to diesel vehicles as the part in question catches the excess soot produced by diesel engines to reduce their emissions and impact on the environment. However, if you don’t drive faster than 40 miles an hour often enough, this soot builds up and isn’t burned away through a process called regeneration. That’s where DPF cleaning comes in! Here at our garage in Gateshead, we’ll thoroughly flush and clean your DPF system to remove the clogging soot and leave it running better than before!
If your DPF cleaning light switches on, it means that too much soot has built up in the system. If you can’t drive your car for a short burst above 40 miles an hour, such as on a motorway, the light could turn red. At that point, you should pull over and get your car into a garage as quickly and safely as possible. It’s best to avoid this situation as the repair bill can become very expensive, so book a DPF cleaning appointment with GC Autos before it’s too late! If you can’t force your DPF to regenerate within a couple of days of the light coming on, then its time to book a garage appointment. At GC Autos we use Carbon Clean products for this process.
