How To Find Your DPF Pressure Sensor Location

Intro Like all sensors, DPF sensors can go bad. But what are these sensors and what is a DPF anyway? A DPF is a Diesel Particulate Filter and as its name suggests, it’s used in your car’s diesel engine to minimize the amount of soot in the exhaust. As you can imagine, this is very important for the environment since the filter will help to cut down the smoke emitted from the car’s muffler.

Is a DPF Filter Covered Under Warranty?

Are you considering the purchase of a vehicle with a diesel engine? Modern diesel engine technology has come a long way in the last few decades and the DPF is a major part of that. For this reason, you may be wondering if your DPF is covered under warranty. If an issue occurs as a result of a DPF failure, please note that the repair work may not be covered under a warranty if proper DPF maintenance guidelines have not been adhered to.

How To Check Obd1 Codes With A Paperclip

Intro If you have a GM car from 1980 to 1995 then there is a major chance that you have the OBD1 connector (ALDL). OBD1 connectors are special connectors that apply to Pontiac, Oldsmobile, Chevrolet, GMC, Cadillac, and Buick vehicles. While these connectors are older, the great thing about them is that you can easily read these codes without any diagnostic tools. So, while there are many special diagnostic tools that can read these connector codes, using a diagnostic tool is not entirely necessary.

How To Remove And Clean Yor DPF Filter

Background Diesel particulate filters (DPF) are installed in many modern vehicles to reduce harmful emissions as well as eliminate soot and ash. However, despite the fact that the vehicle should clean the DPF while you are driving, it is likely that the DPF may build up so much soot and ash over time that you need to have it removed and professionally cleaned. If you want to clean your DPF filter yourself, the first step is to remove the DPF.

20 EGR Delete Pros And Cons

Intro EGR stands for exhaust gas recirculation and is used in gasoline and diesel engines. In internal combustion engines, EGR is a technique used to reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions. It works by recirculating a portion of an engine’s exhaust gas back to the engine’s intake. This process keeps the engine cool while maintaining good fuel efficiency. Of course, it also reduces emissions - thereby keeping in tandem with the law.

Diesel Particulate Filter Regeneration | The Complete Guide

DPF (Diesel Particulate Filters) are specially designed to filter or trap diesel exhaust particles or soot. As you can surely imagine, over time the filter will pick up a lot of waste particles and will need to be emptied to maintain performance. The process by which the DPF is cleaned or emptied is referred to as regeneration. In other words, DPF regeneration is the process of cleanly burning off or removing the excess soot deposited in a DPF filter or clearing a blocked DPF filter.
