    Don’t ignore the DPF warning light – call Scotlands Ash!

    Tuna DPF warning lightScotlands Ash Garage can revive blocked Diesel Particulate Filters (DPFs) with the new TerraClean EGR cleaning tool.

    The new tool has emerged as a leading service for Scotlands Ash Garage, becoming extremely popular not just in the thorough cleaning of the EGR system, but with restoring air flow to inlet manifolds, improving swirl flap operation and, cleaning DPFs.

    The visual inspection of DPFs has been added to MoT test criteria. The DPF works by absorbing harmful diesel particulate matter or soot and then burning these off during its regeneration cycle. For this cycle to complete successfully, the vehicle is required to run for a prolonged period or risk the DPF becoming clogged and ultimately fail. Other reasons for DPF failure include ineffective heater plugs or underlying engine problems.
