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.

Some of Our Customer Feedback

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.

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 and 8am-1pm Saturday

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.

How do I stop my DPF blocking again?
