Diesel Particulate Regeneration:
A diesel particulate filter, sometimes called a DPF, is a device designed to remove diesel particulate matter or soot from the exhaust gas of a diesel engine. DPF's usually remove 85% or more of the soot. In addition to collecting the particulate, a method must exist to clean the filter. Most filters are designed to burn off the accumulated soot through the use of active technology, such as a fuel burner which heats the filter to soot combustion temperatures, through engine modifications. The engine is set to run a certain specific way when the filter load reaches a pre-determined level, which will oxidize the particulates at relatively low temperatures. This is known as 'filter regeneration'. The first indication of a fault is usually the EML (engine management light) coming on. If you have a problem with the DPF not regenerating, then the alternative may be a forced regeneration, much cheaper than replacement costs of anything up to 1000 pounds. We have the necessary equipment and software to carry out these tasks at considerably less cost than DPF replacement.
Exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) involves recirculating a proportion of exhaust gases back to the air intake. The components facilitating this process can require maintenance and their failure can causing error codes or related engine issues. The flow of the returning exhaust gas can be reduced or eliminated.
Fuel Contamination Drain-Off Facility:
Fuel contamination can be very expensive. To avoid replacement of parts in their thousands call us and we will look after you from the collection of your vehicle to the safe disposal of the fuel.
Using tools from SUN and SNAP ON we have the ability to identify and fix all problems associated with engine diagnostics. Effective fault diagnostics enables us to quickly identify any problem, and ensures the correct part is ordered first time.
Our fully licensed MOT test lane uses the latest equipment giving us the ability to test all makes and models of petrol and diesel cars and LCVs. This includes the equipment to comply with the 2009 diesel emissions regulation.
