DPF Cleaning & Servicing

What is a DPF?

Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF) are fitted to most modern cars and vans to capture and store exhaust soot to reduce emissions from diesel cars. These filters become clogged over time reducing fuel efficiency and power, creating turbo issues, and causing vehicles to fail to start. 

A new DPF can range from £1000 to £3500, our service is a fraction of that cost and can normally be done the same day. 

What can I do about it?

Here at The Garage Howden, we can refurbish your DPF on or off the vehicle, if the DPF is clogged with soot (which is the common reason for blockage) then as a TerraClean® Service centre we have the equipment and training to clean it on the vehicle, we can then get you back on the road in an hour or two. This service comes at a fixed price, just ask us for a written quote.  

We are now one of only a handful of centres around the country to have invested in the high powered “off-vehicle” systems that will also clear ash that completely blocks the DPF, no amount of cleaning or regeneration on the vehicle will clear this – but we can! We offer a 24-hour turn around on these and it is a fixed cost that is a fraction of the price of a new DPF. 

What types of DPF can be refurbished?

We carry out this service for other garages in the region, our machine is also equipped to cater pretty much any DPF from small plant, cars, vans and up to large goods vehicles (LGV) and tractors – call us for a quote on these units.
