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.

  • Well pleased with the work, staff, organisation and working environment. I recommend Harrisons to anyone who is in need of any work on your car. I wish I had known of this garage years ago. The atmosphere at the garage leaves you with a feeling of confidence and assurance the job is done well. Everything explained in detail, that you can understand, quite rare these days I think. thanks.

  • Left MOT & a couple of other bits to do a little late. Booked the car in quickly and all sorted! The work I thought needed doing didn’t, providing full explanation and not wanting to charge for unnecessary work. Great value and friendly helpful service.
