Here at Surrey DPF cleaning we dont just carry out a quick clean, reset your warning lights and send you on your way.... its much more detailed than that.
First things first we will ask the driver a few questions, how long has the warning light been on, when was the vehicle last serviced and driving styles, etc, we then Carry out a Diagnostics check on the vehicle and find out if it has any fault codes stored in the ECU. We check and log live data using our genuine diagnostics systems, and we will look at pressures both pre and post DPF, manually and electronically checking to compare the two, soot and ash contents will be measured and logged.
If any parts are needed then the customer is informed and an estimate is given.
There is usually a reason why the DPF is clogging up hence the in depth diagnostics, once the system is working correctly we will then carry out the clean using our three stage chemical solution.
Once the clean has been carried out, a test drive will be carried out and all data will be logged again and compared to pre clean data.
ECU data will be reset and the car will be test driven, a fuel additive will be added as and when required, and once we are happy all is well the car will be returned and driver will be told whats been done and some advice on keeping the system in top shape.
Whether you're coming in for a routine inspection or a repair service, we promise that you will be completely satisfied with our work.
