DPF Cleaning @ Our Pembroke Dock Garage 


The DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) is designed to remove soot particles from your exhaust emissions and has been widely fitted to diesel engined vehicles since around 2003 in response to EU legislation concerning emissions.

As with any filter, the DPF needs to be clean and clear to work properly, so it’s designed to rid itself of accumulated soot through a process called ‘regeneration’.

The DPF has to be at an optimum temperature for regeneration to take place, and this can only be achieved with the vehicle fully warmed up for extended periods such as on longer trips. 

If the engine spends most of its time warming up or starting from cold such as in vehicles used for lots of start/stop driving, short trips to town/school run then the DPF can’t regenerate as it either doesn’t reach its optimum temperature or can’t maintain it for long enough.

In these cases, the DPF clogs up and can’t filter the soot properly. The result is a vehicle, not only emitting sooty particulate matter into the air but suffering a likely drop off in power and excessive fuel consumption. 

I can offer several solutions to overcome this, please contact me so we can talk about your requirements.

DPF Solutions

  • Increase horsepower
  • Lower fuel consumption
  • Quicker throttle response


EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) 

The EGR valve allows excess exhaust gases to be introduced to the cars air induction system, this enables the car to recycle its own exhaust gases by burning it inside the engine.  This was introduced by car manufacturers as a way to lower emissions.

Unfortunately, allowing carbon rich gases into a clean induction system can causes problems such as carbon  build up on components like the EGR valve, intake manifold and valves. 

If your vehicle is suffering with poor running, hesitation when accelerating  or you have a warning light on your dash; Contact me to diagnose and offer a solution to help.

DPF Cleaning 

Using the most UpToDate DPF cleaning Systems by GAT

The GAT DPF cleaning gun is designed to help with the cleaning of Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF), a common problem with modern diesel vehicles. This is due to strict regulations designed to reduce harmful emmissions, making DPFs a must-have.

this service can be carried out whale the DPF is still connected to the vehicle meaning an avenge time on site is only 2 hours 


Once applied, the fluid will start dissolving soot inside the filter. You can apply the fluid without removal or other unnecessary work. Heavily contaminated cases may require a forced DPF regeneration.
