DPF Bracknell

Unless you’re a car fanatic or one of our technicians, you probably won’t know what a DPF is. It’s one of the least known components of a car. But it’s mighty important.

Your Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) traps and stores soot. That’s its job. DPFs were imposed by EU regulations to pass emissions tests. If yours is faulty and you don’t get it fixed you could face a 4 figure fine.

Your DPF is designed to burn off the accumulated soot. However, they can get blocked from time to time.

    After looking at the on line reviews for the garage ( which were excellent !!) I thought id give the garage ago as my car had some issues with the air conditioning and a "clonking noise "coming from the engine, and may I say I wasn't disappointed. Kevin whom I originally spoke to was lovely, very professional and polite (always a good sign) . There was also Isaac the "Manager" Harry and... Read More

    I had a poor experience with a Mercedes main dealer and thought I would try these guys. Very professional, fully automated as far as admin is concerned, ( no waiting at an oily desk while someone writes your details in a dog eared book with a pencil). A couple of issues arose during the MOT that they brought to my attention by text & e-mail which I also had done. Excellent work and excellent... Read More

    Great garage, extremely well orginised. Communication is second to none. Certain prices for repairs may seem high but they use original parts which are expensive. Overall highly recommended. Great job guys and keep good work going on. 5 stars!

    Ricky and his team were amazing not only in supporting me with my own car but with my nephew's first car since passing his driving test! Extremely professional, supportive and honest! A great company to have in Bracknell. I would highly recommend Eco Test for your car needs?

DPF Bracknell

Why is my DPF light on?

If your DPF light is on it’s crucial that you get it checked immediately. Not only do you potentially have a problem on your hands, but you could also end up facing fines.

If you choose to leave it you’ll end up with a flashing light, which usually means one thing: expensive repairs. Don’t let it get to that point.

Come and see us at ECO Test Bracknell if your DPF light is on. We’ll make sure everything is running as it should.

DPF Bracknell

Why is my DPF blocked?

There are many reasons why your DPF could be blocked. Here are some of the more common reasons:

  • A faulty DPF light didn’t alert you to a problem
  • Incorrect oil
  • Failing turbo
  • Too many short journeys where the regeneration process (the process that burns stored soot to keep your DPF clear) hasn’t had time to activate


Please call us for a price.

For a great value DPF evaluation, come to ECO Test Bracknell.

We’re open 8am-6pm Mon-Fri.

What are the common causes of the DPF light coming on?

A failed exhaust gas recirculation valve, issues with your exhaust and injection systems and faulty glow plugs are all common causes of your DPF warning light coming on. Even using the wrong type of oil in a car can trigger the warning light.

Come and see us at ECO Test. One of our technicians will quickly identify the cause and get your DPF working as it should.

DPF Bracknell

How do I stop my DPF blocking again?

The best way to make sure your DPF doesn’t clog up again is by bringing your car to ECO Test and letting one of our technicians regenerate your system by burning all the soot from your filter
