Diesel Particulate Regeneration

Filters are used to prevent unwanted substances or particles from getting into an area. On vehicles, it works just the same except the DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) is preventing pollution from getting into the atmosphere by trapping chemical covered soot which is released from the engine and travels through the exhaust.

Which regeneration does my vehicle need?

  • Active – manually increasing the exhausts temperature which commences burning the soot. Approximate 10-minute completion time.
  • Passive – relies on the exhaust already being hot to remove the soot and/or using ECU to control the process
  • Forced – this type of regeneration also requires an engine oil and oiler filter change.

This emphasises why it is so important to clean the DPF regularly. If you bring your vehicle to Harrisons, we can conduct a Diesel Particulate Regeneration and blast way the trapped soot at approximately 600 °C.

  • review rating 5  Guys here are super friendly! I don't feel like they try and take advantage of the fact I'm a young girl who doesn't know anything about cars. Good prices with payment plan options too. Been able to see to me with short notice. Would definitely recommend

  • review rating 5  Despite the dislocations being caused by the covid lockdown, provided an MOT (sourcing and replacing all damaged shocks), service and some electrical work within a single day. Very professional yet friendly.
