Blackwater Autoworks

Being in the trade since 2008, where we started in a small back street garage, we have learnt a lot. The Motor trade is a very saturated market with lots of vendors; from franchised dealers and fast fit centres to small independent garages. The competition is tough with everyone claiming they are better than the rest. Here at Blackwater Autoworks, we do not talk about how much better we are, nor do we brag how we can ‘take care of all your motoring needs’. With the fast pace of technology and the wide variations of cars on the road, it is impossible to know everything, even for a specialist who focuses on only one particular brand. It is always a catch-up game, even for the bigger franchised dealersHere at Blackwater Autoworks, we are clear and simple as to where we stand. We all want the same thing – a simple and happy life. We want to contribute to our community, and we do this by striving to be one of the respectable and reputable independent garages in our area. We continue to work on our craft by investing in the latest technologies and never stop training ourselves to be better technicians. We do this to keep a thriving business with happy customersWe understand that customer service is at the forefront of it all. Flashy facilities or an endless list of accolades doesn’t mean anything to you if you feel like you didn’t get the value for your money. We want to make our customers feel valued and listened to. When you are dealing with us, we will always make sure you get the service/product you thought you would receive, and we are getting a happy customer. We only make promises we can keep, even if it means we have to say NO. Occasionally there is a job which is beyond our capabilities, so we would prefer to advise you on what to do next, rather than take your money and not get the job done correctly. ‘Quality over quantity’ is definitely our ethos, so we only put out work that we are proud of. Once you hand over your car keys; we understand you are putting your trust in us, and we promise to carry out any job to the best of our abilities. We also know that if we break that promise you are never coming back. Till this day we have not spent any money on big marketing campaigns but gratefully relied on our happy customers’ word of mouthThank you for visiting our page.

Diesel Particulate Filter Clean Specialist Garages in Sandhurst
Frequently asked questions
+

What is a diesel particulate filter?

A diesel particulate filter gets rid of small soot particles. Modern engines burn very efficiently, but even the cleanest diesel engine still emits some soot particles. The diesel particulate filter catches these particles and burns them off in a process known as regeneration. Since 2009, all diesel cars have had these filters added.
+

What are common DPF problems?

If the DPF can't 'regenerate' completed (through insufficient long journeys) the filter will eventually fill to above 75% full, too high for regeneration through driving. A warning light will appear on the dashboard and shouldn't be ignored - if the filter fills completely your car won't run properly.
+

What happens if my diesel particulate filter breaks?

If your DPF fills to over 75% it needs to be taken out and 'cleansed' by a garage. If you don't do this, a new one will be required. If you do neither, your car won't run properly.
+

What is a diesel particulate filter replacement cost

A diesel particulate filter replacement can cost over £1,000. A much cheaper option is to have the DPF cleansed - this typically costs around £200.

What is a Diesel Particulate Filter?

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.

Passive Regeneration

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.

Active Regeneration

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.

Signs that your Diesel Particulate Filter needs cleaning

  • A warning light may appear
  • A slight increase in fuel consumption
  • Increased idle speed
  • Deactivation of automatic stop/start
  • A hot and strong smell emitting from the exhaust
  • The note of the engine changing

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.
