BMW Mini DPF Filter Cleaning Liverpool
If you have a diesel Mini, you most likely have a Mini DPF. The DPF is an integral part of a diesel-powered Mini’s exhaust. It has been a legal requirement to fit DPFs to all new diesel vehicles since 2012. What is a DPF, though, and why is the DPF on your Mini important?
What is my Mini’s DPF?
DPF stands for “Diesel Particulate Filter”. The DPF on your mini is basically a filter to remove large soot particles from the exhaust gases to reduce pollution. It continues to collect the particles of soot until your mini’s engine control unit (ECU) decides it is time for it to be cleared. The mini’s ECU then does a regeneration: it heats up the DPF to a temperature where all the particles are incinerated into dust. However, this only works properly if your Mini is in full working order and if:
- The Mini’s engine has no fault codes
- You are travelling at motorway speeds in your Mini
- The correct oil for the Mini is being used
- The Mini’s glow plugs are working
BMW Mini DPF Chemical Cleaning
What if there is a fault? Unfortunately, if these criteria are not met, then the regeneration will fail and the Mini DPF will require specialist chemical cleaning. Help is at hand, as MB Liverpool are here to the rescue if that happens!
