DPF Removal Ford Focus 2.0 TDCi. Diesel Particulate Filter Problems


dpfThe chances are, if you are visiting this page you are suffering at the business end of a DPF problem. Chances are you probably did’nt know your car had one until the engine light came on and the vehicle went into limp mode.

The Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) may well be blocked for a number of reasons, most common are either you tend to mostly drive the car in short runs of say 10 miles a day, round town in which case the filter will just fill up and not get a change to empty itself – OR you have done a lot of motorway driving and the DPF has regenerated itself many times, each time leaving a fine layer of ash – and in fact its probably the “ash mass” that is causing the blockage

If your problem is the latter your very limited in your options as even a “forced” regeneration cannot reduce the mass of ash any further… read on..

So What Are Your Options?

..Well, if you think it might be blocked because of lots of town driving then you do have an option of taking the car in to a garage which can perform a forced regeneration. This can supply a “stay of execution” and free up some space for a while.

If you think you might be suffering from a high ash count then basically your options are removal or replacement, this unit has reached the end of its serviceable life.

Will my car pass an MOT without a DPF?

Yes! There is no legal requirement to have a DPF fitted , so is not required to pass a test. It does NOT affect the emissions, not that there is currently an emissions test on a Diesel in the UK anyway…
