Regular DPF cleaning and maintenance is an essential step to keep your vehicle running smoothly.
Why Do DPFs Require Maintenance?
While DPFs are designed to be self-cleaning, several factors can prevent this process from working adequately. For example, city driving which means low-speed trips with stop-start traffic allows the dirt and soot particles to accumulate in the filter. Often, a vehicle that is only doing city driving will need to perform a forced regen on their vehicle to burn out the soot that has gathered in the DPF.
To better understand a DPF self-cleaning mechanism, think of it like an air filter or an oil filter on your vehicle - when you don’t clean them or replace them from time to time , it drastically reduces the performance of the vehicle.
The Importance of DPF Cleaning
While some are choosing DPF removal and delete kits, we strongly recommend our clients not to take this route for two reasons – it’s against the law in some areas (laws vary from region to region) and when it comes time to resell, it will be necessary to have a DPF on the vehicle.
The best way to ensure a properly functioning DPF is to have it cleaned and restored regularly using professional service experts in the field who are using an ultrasonic restoration process – check out our Ultrasonic Gold Service Restoration.
One thing to consider would be adding DPF cleaning to the current preventative maintenance plan. Why not take the extra time and effort to make sure the vehicle is in top notch condition for the next trip?
The cost of one tow would most likely be more than the cost to have your DPF filters cleaned and restored while in for preventative maintenance.
