Before coming here I was told I had a DPF issue. Thankfully Jay knows his stuff and found the real issue: a blocked EGR valve, a faulty fuel temperature sensor and a new bonnet latch after the other one had seen better days. Brilliant work for a fair price and explanations every step of the way. Car now runs smoother, is more powerful and responsive and most importantly passed its MOT! Very happy with the service, will be reccomending to others and a returning customer. Cheers
Just purchased a 2nd hand car and unfortunately very quickly it had issues. Brought it to kerr tech and in a day he had spoken to the garage and warranty guys, fixed the car and kept me updated throughout as i needed it back ASAP, i use it for work! Got it back the next day perfect. Highly recommended service was upfront, honest & transparent. Cost was for an additional EDT service I wanted.
Fantastic service could not do anymore for me would highly recommend kerr tech thanks again
Absolute pleasure dealing with this garage. He had the fault diagnosed with ten minuyes. Another garage asked us if we knew what was wrong. Had the EDT engine clean. Better MPG, reduced engine noise.
Can’t recommend highly enough..wish all garages weee as good as this wouldn’t hesitate to use again or recommend to anyone..simply superb .Thank you!
What a result Steve carried out the Diagnostics on my Lexus and found the problems in quick time, broken wires from MAF Sensor, which he repaired, faulty heater in brand new Lambda sensor which fitted, he found the fault on new sensor which he replaced with a new sensor from the Lexus stealers,which put up the price, Had to bite the bullet on that one, Any way car back and running better than ever, great job from STEVE AND NOT FORGETTING HIS DAD. What a team, just asked him to change my cam belt and parts , booked in for next week, will recommend Kerr Tech to my friends, wish I had found him years ago, well done,great job. Regards. Brian.N.

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.
