A DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) is one of the lesser-known components in a car. However, although not many people actually know what it is, it’s an extremely important component of your vehicle that needs to be maintained. Otherwise, you’ll face large fines.

Your DPF’s job is to trap soot and store it. They were imposed by Euro regulations to pass tight emission control tests. And, although they’re designed to burn off that soot, they do get blocked.

If you’re found to be driving with a faulty Diesel Particulate Filter, you could face 4-figure fines.

DPF Warning Light Bowydd Garage

Why is my DPF light on?

If your DPF light is on, there’s a problem. Whether it’s a blockage or something else, you need to get your DPF checked as a matter of urgency.

If you don’t, your DPF light will start to flash and that usually means very expensive repair bills. So, we highly recommend that the moment your DPF light comes on, you get in touch with us. It’ll save you a lot of time, money and stress in the long run.
