If your vehicle runs on a diesel, it’s likely that your engine is equipped with a device known as a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). What a DPF does is capture small carbon particles and prevent them from being expelled through your exhaust pipe and into the air while you’re driving. And like any filter, this one should be periodically changed and cleaned for both the good of the environment and the performance of your engine.
As a registered franchisee of TerraClean®, Chorlton Tyres is more than capable of performing an expert DPF cleaning according to their standards.
How DPF Cleaning Works
When you drive your vehicle at close to 70 mph, your DPF will automatically regenerate and clear away its own carbon buildup. However, sometimes this isn’t enough. In such cases, you can rely on the team at Chorlton Tyres to fix or clean your diesel engine’s filter.
Our DPF cleaning process is available as both a basic and premium service. For a basic cleaning, you can bring in your filter to us and get it cleaned on the same day. Our premium service requires bringing in your vehicle to our shop, where the DPF will receive a professional cleaning and re-installation. In both cases, a trained technician will check that the filter has been securely put into place and reset your vehicle’s warning lights and fault codes.
Safety and Service, Rated by TerraClean®
The Chorlton Tyres team will always deliver a certificate of approval once we’ve cleaned and re-secured your car’s DPF. This certificate will show the difference in your car’s engine flow rates from before and after the cleaning process, so you can see for yourself how much better your engine will run in the future.
If you own a vehicle that needs a DPF installed, or if you would like us to examine, clean and replace your engine’s old filter, please don’t hesitate to give us a call. Our staff will give your vehicle a fair assessment and offer you a free price quote for what we can do.
