Clogged DPF? Compare refurbishment and cleaning prices in seconds.
Very quick and easy to make an appointment. Good value too
It was the second time I have used Kam Servicing for my MOT and have used for other repairs too. The price is very competitive and the service is professional and reliable. I also appreciate that they call you by your name as you go in, which shows that they value their customers
Very good service thanks
Very polite, efficient service indeed.
Work was done fast and the price wasn’t just as stated
Work was completed in the time set out by the company and the customer service was spot on.
Just what I asked for
Great service, car was ready to collect the same day I dropped it in.
Will definitely be using again in the future
Fast , was using it first time but looks pretty reliable. Will come back if needed.
Spot on, nice friendly staff, knew what they were doing and took no time at all.
Excellent friendly service, called to book my car in and Simon, said he could fit me in the following day, car was done and ready to collect in a couple of hours, will definitely be using them again, and recommending to friends and family
Fast, honest and friendly workmanship. Had a few more issues with the breaks than I initially thought but was phoned and told about these straight away and the price I was given was more then reasonable. Would definitly recommend and use again myself.
Good place to go well recommend it
Work completed within an hour and a half and at the price quoted
People good service good price good
Had cam belt kit & water pump fitted which was the cheapest quote. They did a free 20 point car check, couple of things were advised & all jobs done on the same day with no extra labour charge. Staff were friendly & genuine. Prices were competitive, offered me several much needed coffee. Highly recommended
Very quick and efficient puncture repair. I wasn’t in and out in about 15 minutes. The only thing I wasn’t sure about was when I called up I was told one price, but the price on here was less. I booked in at this price, but feel I would’ve been charged the higher price if I didn’t. Not sure whether there was any difference in the service.
Kam Servicing initially agreed an appointment that was in approx 36 hours. Due to towing they were flexible on the arrival time and agreed to accommodate an earlier time. They rang within 3 hours with a diagnosis of the problem and car was ready to go the next day. The provided a full explanation of the problem and the parts and labour to resolve the issue.
These guys are just perfection. Amazing customer service, they do all they can to help and over the years Kam Services have fixed all my cars. Thanks Chaps

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.
