πŸ‘ Check Out These DPF Tips -

Email sent: May 14, 2020 2:48am

Is this your brand on Milled? You can claim it.

-, vehicles fitted with Dpf Filters do require a little more attention around service time and here are 5 Pro Tips to be aware of to extend the life of your Diesel Particulate Filter.

TIP #1

At the very least, once a month take the vehicle on an uninterrupted drive preferably on a freeway for around 30 mins. At a minimum 2,500 rpm (Manually drop down 1 or 2 gears to avoid exceeding the speed limit). If required the vehicle will attempt a regeneration to prolong the life of the filter, while doing this please also note that you need to ensure the fuel tank is more than quarter full or the vehicle may not attempt a regeneration.

TIP #2

Ensure your mechanic has the most up to date equipment to properly service your vehicle, the latest cars require scan tools to re-set certain parameters each service.

Β 

TIP #3

DPF equipped vehicles require a very specific oil specification – Using the incorrect oil will certainly shorten the life of your DPF filter.

Β 

TIP #4

Try to limit excessive idling.

Β 

TIP #5

Low mileage DPF blockages can very often indicate a further issue with the vehicle such as Intercooler Boost hoses – DPF filters always get the bad wrap for causing a vehicles breakdown but what must be remembered is the DPF filter is just the β€œCatcha” and a lot of the time it is what is happening upstream before the DPF filter that is the main cause of frustration.

Β 

DPF Equipped vehicles really need to be maintained at least every service – a missed service will come back to haunt you in the future! Get a Western Filters quote for your DPF Cleaning here:
