Cleaning of your vehicles FAP Filter / DPF is a specialist process but following strict guidelines along with vast experience, results in an improved car with the added bonus it costs less than the price of a new high quality item which are typically around the £1000 plus mark! Plus fitting, plus potentially damaged sensors etc! On a Mercedes there’s not much change out of £3000!
What are the benefits?
No more reduced performance/limp mode
No more engine management lights
No more rejuvenation events
Improved Turbo & Throttle Response
Dramatic Improvement in Performance.
So what do we do then?
There are 3 elements to the process:
Stage 1: In Depth DPF Diagnostics
We carry out an in depth diagnostics, checking that the key components and sensors are functioning correctly before initiating a DPF clean. Where necessary, further investigation is carried out to ensure a clean is the correct matter of course. We carry various common DPF sensors, pipe’s etc in stock so that we can quickly have you back on the road in the event that your DPF problem is actually a component failure.
Stage 2: The DPF Cleaning Process
Using our specialist cleaning system, a carbon cleaning solution is injected into the pre DPF pressure line and soak period is now initiated. The engine is then ran at a fast idle allowing the soak fluid to clean the carbon content in the DPF. This is then followed by a further injection of a cleaning flush solution during an engine fast idle cycle and we carry out the flushing process twice.
Stage 3: Live Data and DPF Analysis
Finally, live data is analysed during a road test or DPF regeneration. This is then followed by final parameter checks logging DPF back pressure readings. These readings, before and after, are then reported back to you for your peace of mind. The three stage DPF cleaning process is now complete.
