DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) Cleaning Perth

Expert Cleaning, Regeneration And Tuning Of Diesel Particulate Filters
(For Cars, 4x4s And Trucks)

If you’re a diesel vehicle owner in Perth looking for optimum engine power, performance, fuel economy and on-road reliability, regular DPF cleaning delivers all this and more.

Not only will regular DPF cleaning reduce your vehicle’s running costs, you’ll also reduce your vehicle’s emissions… making you an environmentally friendly driver 🙂

Preventing clogging or a complete DPF blockage will help you keep your running costs down and your vehicle performance up.

So if your DPF warning light is flashing, it’s time for a clean.

Ignoring the warning light may end up costing you a lot more in the form of a complete replacement of your DPF in a worst case scenario.

It’s time to get some DPF cleaning specialists on the job.

What does a DPF do exactly?

The job of a diesel particulate filter (DPF) is to physically trap diesel soot and ash particles from your engine’s exhaust to prevent it from being emitted out into the atmosphere.

The majority of the trapped soot (being organic matter) is burned off as part of your DPF’s periodic self-regeneration, but the ash particles (which are inorganic matter) are not burned off.

This ash is the end result of oil use and metal wear and tear coming from the engine.

As time passes, the unburned ash particles start to clog up the filter, hence needing to be cleaned periodically.

Specialist DPF Cleaning Service Perth

Auto Smart Mechanical provides DPF cleaning services for all modern diesel applications.

We provide a 3 step cleaning process and carry out advanced diagnostics to troubleshoot for DPF faults.

What’s The 3 Step DPF Cleaning Process?

  • Correct Diagnosis of DPF problems
  • Cleaning of DPF Filter
  • Forced Regeneration of the DPF

When you book your vehicle with Auto Smart Mechanical our expert technicians carry out advanced troubleshooting checks and diagnostics before cleaning your DPF filter.

A blocked DPF is often the outcome of an underlying problem.

If a problem is found, we will advise the best course of action to get your vehicle back on the road in a timely and cost-effective manner.

3 Step DPF Cleaning Process:

Step 1: Advanced DPF Diagnostics

Before cleaning is carried out our technicians perform advanced troubleshooting, testing and diagnostic steps to ascertain the condition and functionality of all components and sensors related to the DPF to ensure a clean will rectify any faults.

Differential pressure of the filter is checked and recorded to gauge how blocked the filter is and provide a reference for comparison after cleaning.

 

Step 2: DPF Cleaning & Flushing

A fuel treatment designed to aid cleaning and lower required regeneration temperature is added to the fuel tank.

Next, using our specialist European-designed DPF cleaning equipment, the cleaning solution is injected directly into the DPF filter and allowed to soak, beginning the cleaning process.

We then run the engine at high idle to work the cleaning solution through the filter, clearing the blockage, often expelling foam and carbon from the tailpipe.

We finish the process with a 2 stage injection of a flush directly into the DPF while the engine is run at high idle.

 

Step 3: DPF Regeneration & Analysis

A forced or manual regeneration is now carried out so that correct function of the DPF can be observed and live data monitored.

Differential pressure is recorded and compared to the original data noted before cleaning to confirm an effective clean has been completed.

 

DPF Replacement

Ideally a DPF repair will be the best outcome with lowest cost. In some cases, it’s not possible for a number of reasons and your DPF specialist will explain the reasons if such a situation arises.

If a repair isn’t possible, a replacement of your vehicle’s DPF may be required.

​Our 3 step cleaning process is much faster than conventional cleaning methods and a much more cost effective alternative to DPF replacement.

Conventional methods often require the DPF be removed from the vehicle, cut open, cleaned for 24 hours, welded shut then refitted to the vehicle.

Besides the extra labour costs involved, the whole conventional process is often a 48 hour turnaround.

Our 3 step cleaning process is often completed within only around 2 hours.

In some cases a DPF replacement will be necessary and our technician will advise you if this is the case as soon as possible.

“Went above and beyond, Wish I used him earlier!”
Luke was professional the entire time and explained things to me as he went along, I had a car fitted with a new engine not going and Luke got it going where a lot of other mechanics may have put it in the “too hard basket” & he fixed all other brake,clutch, elec issues. This is what all mechanics should be like friendly, honest & professional. He went above and beyond on a Sunday after 9pm. He charged a great price for the work being done! Will definitely use again & would recommend to others.

“Clean and friendly, no lies, just did good work!”
I have been dealing with car dealer workshops for years getting ripped off with over servicing, one even replacing my brake pads after they were put in 6000km before. A friend put me onto Auto Smart Mechanical and Luke came out. Was impressed straight away with the price. He was careful with my car and also used good quality oil. The best part is he told me what I could leave and do next time, not tell me it was a “safety issue”. Log book stamped and everything was left spotless.
