A Diesel Particulate Filter (also known as a ‘DPF’) is filter that has been designed to trap and capture soot that is located in the exhaust. The goal of the DPF is to avoid the soot from being pumped out into the atmosphere.

Ideally, a DPF should reduce a diesel’s particle emissions by up to 80% during rapid stop and start driving conditions.

A DPF is a significant component that is important for emission regulations to be met. You will also find that diesel vehicles may also have catalytic converters and the catalytic converter is placed after the DPF in the exhaust system. This is done so that the soot that has already passed through the DPF can then be converted into gases that are deemed as less impactful to the environment.

It is common to find that the DPF fills up quickly with these soots. You will find that over time the soot particles will build up and the DPF will aim to clean itself during a process called ‘regeneration’. This process is to try and clean out the trapped soot and burn it off to avoid replacing the filter. It can only happen though if the DPF reaches a temperature capable of burning away the soot particles.

Diesel Particulate Filter Diagram

The DPF burning process happens in 2 ways. These include:

Passive regeneration:
When driven at speed for a reasonable period (for example, driving on the motorway) the temperature of the exhaust becomes high enough for the passive regeneration burn to take place.

Active regeneration:
Is for those who don’t actively commute on motorways on a daily basis and the vehicle’s ECU detects that a regeneration burn needs to happen and will proceed to do this by changing the temperature of the exhaust by adjusting the amount of fuel being burnt in the engine.

This process is very important for the environment and for your vehicle’s efficiency. There are times where the DPF blocks due to the build up of too much soot and the regeneration process stops.

It is important to ensure that your DPF is working to an optimal level and it does not block. Fortunately, instead of repairing, or replacing your DPF an affordable option is to clean the DPF.

Auto Stop are specialists in DPF cleaning and can help with this service.


It is recommended to clean your DPF when:

  • Your DLF warning light does not go off
  • Your vehicle manufacturer recommends to clean it periodically
  • There are symptoms that the DPF is blocked
  • There are visible signs of excessive soot and grime around the DPF and exhaust

Symptoms of a blocked DPF are:

  • Large amount of exhaust fumes emitting from the back
  • Loss in fuel efficiency
  • DPF warning lights on your dashboard appearing
DPF Cleaning


At Auto Stop we use a very specific DPF cleaning process.

Prior to any cleaning we ensure we provide a full assessment of your DPF. This is necessary prior to cleaning as there are many cases where cleaning the DPF is not an effective option.

There is no guesswork with our DPF cleaning service. Our industry leading DPF Assessment is the most critical part of our job and allows us to find the cause of your DPF problems. We carry out out proven testing procedures so that we can identify any underlying issues straight away.

If your DPF is in need of a clean, we conduct our DPF cleaning process. It’s a comprehensive but very professional and effective service saving our customers money and providing value for their vehicle and its DPF to operate at an optimum level.

Part of our DPF cleaning process is to use specialist chemicals and tools to clear excessively blocked DPF’s. This procedure is only carried out after the root cause of the DPF blockage has been identified or repaired. We provide a full cleaning, repair or replacement service depending on the condition and problem related to the DPF.

Leave DPF cleaning to the professionals. Call Auto Stop today to discuss any DPF cleaning enquiries.
