Land Rover DPF Filter Cleaning LiverpoolDiesel-powered Land Rovers are now fitted, by law, with a DPF. DPF stands for “Diesel Particulate Filter”. It is a special filter that collects and large particles that are expelled from your Land Rover’s engine as you drive. Your Land Rover will automatically burn away the deposits that have accumulated on the DPF on a regular basis. Sometimes the Land Rover DPF becomes so badly clogged that it can no longer be cleaned automatically, and so Land Rover DPF filter cleaning is required. A Land Rover dealer will charge an arm and a leg for this service, so why not choose an independent Land Rover specialist to take care of your Land Rover’s DPF?
Land Rover DPF Filter CleaningThe DPF in your Land Rover is a filter that removes large soot particles from the exhaust gases so as to reduce pollution. It collects the particles until your Land Rover’s engine control unit (ECU) decides it needs to be cleared. The Land Rover’s ECU then does a “regeneration”: it heats the DPF to a high temperature, and the particles are incinerated. However, this only works if your Land Rover is in full working order and:
- The Land Rover’s engine has no fault codes
- You are travelling at motorway speeds in your Land Rover
- The correct oil for the Land Rover is being used
- The Land Rover’s glow plugs are working
