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.

  • 5 star review  Myself and other family members have used this garage for some time now and will not go elsewhere. Lee and his team have been honest and go the extra mile to help. They are certainly not out to rip anyone off and have thoroughly looked into identifying the correct faults rather than simply replacing 'suspected parts'. Their great customer service and efficient work has continued throughout lockdown. Thank you for helping me to keep my car on the road. Highly recommend :-)

  • 5 star review  Excellent garage, very impressed. As a female it's not always easy to find a garage that doesn't try to dupe you into work that doesn't need doing or inflating prices for work done. It was a pleasure coming to Harrison's and finding trustworthy, honest, helpful staff. Highly recommend garage.
