Maintaining & Servicing Diesel Particulate Filters

The Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF) is part of the exhaust stream of diesel engines designed to get rid of soot. Unfortunately, the DPF can sometimes fail, causing the filter to not perform and serve its purpose of reducing emission. For this reason, regular maintenance of your vehicle’s DPF is necessary. Especially in Utah where we have strict emission laws to cut back on pollution. Fortunately, Turn Key Truck & Auto has master technicians who can perform in-shop or remote DPF services. We know what it takes to keep your DPF working its best. We stay up to date with Utah’s state laws and regulations so your vehicle can pass an emissions test. Maintaining and servicing diesel particulate filters is beneficial for many reasons.

Diesel Particulate Filter Cleaning

As Utah’s emission regulations change throughout the years, your vehicle’s DPF must be working properly in order to pass. To avoid soot build-up and reduce emissions, you should have your DPF checked out at least once every six months. There are some cases in which the DPF would need to be checked out prior to the recommended six months. 

Here are some signs to look out for:

  • A reduction in fuel economy
  • DPF warning symbol on dashboard
  • Automatic stop-start system has failed

Benefits of cleaning, maintaining & servicing diesel particulate filters

When you maintain and clean your DPF throughout the year, your vehicle will reap many benefits. Not only will it be easier for you to pass your emissions test, but you’ll notice other things including an increase in fuel economy, better vehicle performance, lower maintenance costs, and a decrease in downtime. When you take care of the DPF, you will be extending its usage and saving yourself from unnecessary breakdowns and costly repairs.
