Clogged Lancia DPF? Compare refurbishment and cleaning prices in seconds.
Took my Ford Fiesta for an interim service and MOT in the morning and was ready by the afternoon. Daniel is a great person, very pleasant and helpful. He even washed my car without charging extra, which is greatly appreciated. I had asked for Ford parts and Daniel was able to provide them. Pricing was very clear without any hidden charges. After the service Daniel provided me with a receipt, service and MOT report. I would definitely recommend the garage and use them again in the future.
Quick, friendly service and a great price. I’ll be using this garage again.
I was really impressed by Dan. I needed someone who would actually collect the car for its service and then deliver it back again, and Dan was very obliging indeed. He arrived on time, was charming and organised, explaining exactly what his terms were and putting my mind at rest about using Audi parts in my car. The car looks lovely-he cleaned it beautifully too-and I am absolutely delighted with the service he has provided. i will definitely be using him from now on. Thank you Dan
Fantastic service on my Mercedes C200 from Daniel. Really professional, friendly and trustworthy guy. Did a great job on the car, came back super clean too. I’d recommend to others and will be back :)
First and foremost, talking from my past experiences, I just want to highlight that nowadays, there are so much unscrupulous garages, mechanics in London, who often tend to deceive women drivers with various rip off tactics. Car Technics, certainly lives up to their reputation as courteous, trustworthy and thorough. I made my decision to check out Car Technics, based on the reviews I read, which of course gave me complete assurance and peace of mind that my experience with this company would be a satisfactory one. I met Daniel for the first time who was very pleasant to talk to and after explaining the issues I had, and by him taking my car for a test drive, he had an inclination of what the problem was, which he later on confirmed by carrying out a thorough diagnostic test on my vehicle. He even took the time to discuss in great detail the cause of this problem, his observations from his diagnosis, the condition my car was in, the work which was required and the disadvantages of not giving this prompt attention. As a result of this, I know that my vehicle is in good hands. My vehicle is currently undergoing the repair process. I will give another update on completion.
Highly recommended. This guy is good!!!!
Highly professional, arrived within an hour and had the car running beautifully the same day. Explained everything in full detail, showed me all parts old and new, couldn't be grateful enough. Thank you Adam, you went above and beyond, I will definitely be in touch in the future should we need it.

Excellent job, really please with the resprayed bonnet. Would highly recommend! Even gave my little car a clean inside as well! Thank you
Carl and the guys did a great job repairing my damaged bumper. They even repaired a loose fog light and a creaking driver's door as part of their service. Highly recommend!
Had clutch replacement done at an affordable price. Good friendly mechanics.
Carl is a wizard. Did an amazing job on my ford focus. Stupidly I scratched the rear passenger side door when parking. Now it's as good as new. Dropped car off Wednesday morning and picked it up Friday evening. Highly recommend this garage and will recommend to friends (and use again should i need their services). Many thanks!
Professional and helpful, repair result nearly perfect.

Great guy,reliable,affordable £380 for cambelt+drivebelt+breakpads
Bmw 320d wishbone, tracking rod and bodywork repair.....Certified job highly recommend
Ade was great, open and welcome, i was watching the replacing process throughout. Both himself and his mechanic communicated clearly about what was the issue and offered suggestions, which were very authentic. cannot speak to the final outcome (how the brake pads work), which takes time and is yet to be seen though. hope all is good
Was delighted - great service, super easy to deal with Ade and Olu by text and phone, and car looked great after. Thanks guys! :)
My son was ill on the morning I was scheduled to bring the car in. Called Ade and he kindly picked my car up from my house. Clutch replaced at agreed quote. Cannot fault the customer service.
Good work done on time for the quoted price, Recommended.
Diesel Particulate Filters are extremely important to have in your vehicle. The filter captures and stores exhaust soot in order to help reduce emissions coming from diesel cars.
Ever since 2009, the Euro 5 standard has been enforced, a rule which ensures all new diesel cars must have particulate filters fitted.
These pieces of equipment were introduced in an effort to reduce the particle and soot emissions from diesel engines. Diesel Particulate filters (DPF) trap soot before it blows out of an exhaust and like any filter, it requires cleaning in order to maintain performance.
Fortunately the filter itself has self-cleaning capabilities known as regeneration.
There are two types of regeneration which can be carried out on your car.
This process happens automatically while the exhaust is at a high temperature which will usually occur when you are driving down a motorway or quickly down an A-road. However, as many vehicles aren’t always being driven at high speeds, an alternative system for regeneration exists.
This method of cleaning the DFP is controlled by an engine management computer and happens automatically when the filter reaches 45% of its limit. The process is initiated by the fuel injection being increased which makes the exhaust heat up and therefore clear the filter. However, if your drive is a short one and the process tries to initiate, it will not be able to properly clear the filter, in this eventuality, the warning light in your car will come on.
A drive of about ten minutes at a speed of around 40mph should be adequate for the process to be successful.
If these issues are effecting your car it is almost certain that you will need your filter replacing which is likely to cost upwards of £1000 including diagnostic and labour time.
And if you were thinking of saving all of that time and money by removing the filter completely, think again, it’s illegal to remove the DPF.
The Department for Transport states that it is an offence to remove the filter or modify the piece of equipment in a way which would result in the vehicle failing air pollutant emission standards. Breaking the law will result in the vehicle not being road worthy so if you are ever offered to have your filter removed, make sure to keep this in mind.
Every MOT now includes a check for the DPF and a smoke test from the exhaust so there is very little chance of getting away with removing the filter.
If you need to have the filter regenerated manually, you must take your vehicle to a trained professional immediately. They will initiate a process where the exhaust is heated up to a point where regeneration happens and soot is cleared from the filter.
