DPF Cleaning Service
Atlas Autoservice is now providing a DPF cleaning service in Dublin.
We are using the carbon clean DPF cleaning machine which brings back the filter to almost a new condition by soaking the filter in DPF cleaner for thirty minutes and then running it through the machine which uses water pressure to remove all the soot and ash from the filter.
The cleaning procedure only takes one hour, so in most cases we will have the filter back on the same day.

About Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF)
Almost all diesel cars built after 2006 have a Diesel Particular Filtration (DPF) fitted within the exhaust to help reduce the amount of soot released into the atmosphere.
If the car is used for short, low speed journeys, soot can build up in the DPF blocking the filter. Longer journeys with higher speeds are usually all that is required to clear the build-up however if this is not maintained, again the blockage can occur. At this point, the cars management system can put your car into “limp home mode”, or a warning light may appear on the dashboard and the car will need mechanical repair. Main dealers will simply fit a new DPF trap which can cost a thousand euros.
You will have a better free flowing exhaust system due to the thorough clean which will potentially restore power, better fuel consumption and eliminate your DPF problems.
