DPF Servicing and Cleaning Information

The simple answer to this question is that you can clean a DPF filter, but ideally you shouldn’t have to because the car’s DPF filter should be self-cleaning or ‘self-regenerating’ as it burns off soot collected in the filter and turns the soot into ash which is expelled.

In theory, vehicle owners should experience very few problems with the Diesel Particulate Filter, as it should be self-cleaning or ‘self-regenerating’.

There are several reasons why DPF’s get blocked.

The main reason is that the vehicle’s own temperature- based regeneration mechanism hasn’t been initiated. The car’s DPF needs a temperature of around 600c in order to burn off the soot in the DPF and turn it into smaller-particle ash which is more easily expelled from the exhaust.
