If you see your DPF light on and it stays on, it means your DPF isn't regenerating. If you continue to drive with the light on, you are risking not just damaging the DPF but also the turbo. This can lead to repair costs of £3000 and above. Ultrasonic DPF Cleaning is the only real alternative to a DPF replacement and can save you serious money.
If a vehicle fails to regenerate the diesel particulate filter will become blocked and the engine management or DPF warning light will illuminate. The failure to regenerate can be caused by the style of driving or type of journeys covered not allowing the vehicle to reach the parameters required for regeneration or due to the failure of a sensor or component associated with the regeneration process.
It is paramount that the reason the original diesel particulate filter became blocked is correctly diagnosed and rectified prior to installation of a replacement unit. Once this has been done and the new unit fitted the vehicle must be set up correctly with compatible diagnostic equipment. Failure to set up the vehicle correctly after installation will almost certainly lead to the replacement DPF becoming blocked.

What is a DPF in Bedford?
The Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) is housed in the exhaust and is designed to capture the soot particles emitted from modern diesel engines.
Sadly, many of the DPF equipped cars are developing problems due to the DPF either failing, clogging up or just failing to carry out a regeneration properly.
This can be down to the age of the vehicle, mileage or could be simply down to the driving style of the owner. Whatever it is, when a DPF warning light illuminates it often means a pretty expensive bill is on its way.
If this does happen, there are some upsides. A DPF clean can increase your vehicles fuel economy, performance and decrease the likely hood of a breakdown or your car ending up in "limp mode" and save you a pretty large sum of of money if the time has come to replace your Diesel Particulate Filter which can be considered normal for some car manufacturers at 60 to 75 thousand miles and costing upwards of a £1000 and over to replace.
Is my DPF covered under warranty?
The DPF is seen as a consumable by many manufacturers and warranty providers. The cost of replacing or regenerating the filter is normally not covered but we would suggest seeking advice if you are experiencing DPF related issues.
What is Ultrasonic DPF Cleaning?
Ultrasonic cleaners employ oscillating sound pressure waves at frequencies beyond those perceptible by the human ear (Ultrasound). As the soundwaves act on the tank and agitate the contained liquid, cavitation (the implosion of tiny air bubbles within the liquid) is induced.
This acts against contaminants adhered to objects contained in the vessel, separating the two much more gently, efficiently and precisely than would be the case with conventional cleaning methods aided by brushes or solvents.
The ultrasonic cleaning process is used in conjunction with solutions in suitable carrier liquids (often water). As the ultrasonic-induced cavitation occurs, the effectiveness of the aqueous solution is greatly improved to deliver an outstanding clean.
Ultrasonic cleaning is the ideal solution for DPF cleaning, it leaves no contamination or build-up on the DPF filter meaning essentially, the DPF after cleaning is "as new".
100% MOT Safe. Comes with a certificate of cleanliness, engraving to the exhaust and your registration is registered with us for full "tracking" and remember, because your DPF is nearly 100% clean, it's less likely to fail the new MOT emissions tests than those cleaned by our competition ... we know all about the new MOT emissions tests because we're an authorised MOT Station.
