What Is a DPF?
A DPF, or diesel particulate filter, is part of your vehicle's exhaust system. The diesel particulate filter is an exhaust after-treatment device that traps soot and ash in order to reduce carbon emissions. Diesel particulate filters trap this waste in order to meet the 2007 EPA standards. As the soot builds up in your vehicle's diesel particulate filter, it can get clogged, which can lead to various problems in your vehicle, such as a decreased fuel economy and a loss of power. If you notice these symptoms (and/or the diesel particulate light on your dashboard turns on), you can bring your vehicle to Big A Auto in Dubuque for a DPF cleaning.
What Does a DPF Cleaning Entail?
To start a diesel particulate filter cleaning, we will inspect your diesel particulate filter and assess the severity of the problem. This includes testing the blockage level of the filter. After that, we will remove the excess ash and soot with a sophisticated cleaning and drying procedure. There are various methods that could be used for diesel particulate filter cleaning, including hydrodynamic cleaning (using a machine to create a jet of fluid pointed directly at the diesel particulate filter) and heat treatment (placing the ceramic insert of the diesel particulate filter in a furnace for approximately 12 hours).
