Blocked DPF Service and Repair

A diesel particulate filter (DPF) can often become blocked, sometimes even under normal driving conditions which may cause an engine management light or fault code to be displayed.  And if ignored the car may even go into a safety limp mode that limits engine speed to help prevent any damage to the engine.

Let us help you save ££££ on potential DPF replacements.

Ignoring a warning light associated with a blocked DPF can result in reduced fuel economy, poor throttle response, limited performance and from 25th May 2018 is an MOT failure.

Letting PP Motor Group diagnose and clean a faulty DPF which is a much more cost-effective alternative to buying a replacement. A new DPF from your vehicle manufacturer is expensive – costing in the region of £1,000 for a typical family car and can be far more.

Whilst DPF’s are supposed to be able to ‘clean’ or regenerate themselves, this does require the engine to spend prolonged periods at an optimum running temperature, which often doesn’t happen with cars that only do short journeys or predominantly spend their time stuck in traffic.

DPF removal was often an option (although not a recommended one) however that is no longer legal and the owner can face significant fines along with being an instant MOT failure.

What options do PP Motor Group offer?

We can offer a range of options –

  • Firstly we want to accurately diagnose what has caused the issue.  A blocked DPF is often the result of a running issue, cleaning a DPF in this instance will only delay the problem recurring again.  We like to fix a problem first time, every time.


  • We offer a Terraclean DPF cleaning service that often fixes the problem where other options have failed.  Terraclean offer a market leading service, carried out in-house by ourselves with exceptional results.


  • If necessary we can replace the DPF with a genuine or aftermarket unit, and options will be discussed with you before proceeding to keep you in control of the process.
  • I thought I would have to replace my DPF, luckily PP Motor Group were able to clean it and saved me a fortune.
