DPF’S (diesel particulate filters) have been fitted to vehicles since 2006 – but many vehicle owners do not know they have one fitted to their vehicle or how they can play their part in looking after their DPF.
Thousands of motorists are also breaking the law by driving their diesel cars without the diesel pollution filter fitted, It is illegal for drivers to use a car with the DPF removed – some of the owners unaware even! As from may 2018 it is an MOT test failure if the DPF has been tampered with also.
We have recently seen an increase in vehicles coming through our workshop for diagnostic assessments / fault finding due to running issues or failing their MOT test on emissions due to the DPF being removed, some of the customers simply not knowing their DPF has been removed. This has huge cost implications to the customer – our advice to all – do not be tempted to have the DPF deleted from your vehicle.
We understand that DPF’S can be very costly, which is why we are trained in carrying out a thorough assessment of your vehicle to ensure the root cause of the DPF blockage is rectified before our 3 stage clean is carried out saving the customer potentially large costs of replacing the DPF.
If you would like us to carry out our assessment on your vehicle to ensure the systems are operating correctly to prevent costly repairs, we would be more than happy to oblige.
As an RAC Approved Garage when you bring your car to JK Auto-Tek, you have the extra peace of mind and reassurance that you’re in safe hands.
