A diesel particulate filter (DPF) captures and stores the smoke generated from an exhaust to reduce emission. To remove a diesel particulate filter from the vehicle is an MOT fail and illegal. Insurers should be notified immediately of this action.

We provide complete DPF diagnosis services which will find the root cause of the problem to save you a lot of money. If your DPF is having problems an orange light on the dashboard will appear as displayed in the image. Usually this is caused by short journeys, poor servicing, cheap or wrong oil types, frequent low fuel levels and additives in fuels.

You will notice some of the following symptoms. Loss of power, reduced fuel economy, poor throttle response, limp mode, bad smells, failure to start. Our diagnosis tools will determine error codes from the vehicle and our technicians will check other possibilities such as bad fuel injectors. We conduct a thorough inspection in different stages to find the problem and to keep your costs low.
