Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF/FAP) Solutions
If the DPF is only just showing recent symptoms of failure, we could conduct a forced regeneration, but for more serious cases there are a few options to consider, but the most common are:
- Diagnostics and Repair - We are experts in finding the cause of DPF faults, enabling us to use a variety of methods to repair your faulty or clogged filter. This can often be cheaper than other solutions as it avoids the often large cost of replacement and means we do not remove the DPF.
- Replacement DPF - This can be extremely expensive, with cheaper alternatives often failing to match the quality of dealer approved units. They will, however, last for over 100,000 miles if new.
- Removal of DPF unit - Often a cheaper alternative to replacement, removal of the DPF will ensure it never blocks again, and leads to better performance and economy.
At JBM, we offer two removal solutions - stainless steel downpipes and standard filter removal, both include software recalibration. It is important to remember that it is illegal to do this in the UK and will cause a vehicle to fail an MOT, and JBM Performance accepts no responsibility for you failing to comply with highway law as a result of DPF removal or any other tuning service.
