Diesel particulate filters
Because Diesel Particulate filters can be a very expensive part to replace, Longlife are able to offer a much more cost effective solution for you, having sourced well priced after market DPFs for many vehicles.
Many people aren't aware that driving a diesel car on predominately short journeys, with the car not getting hot, Diesel Particulate filters can get blocked very quickly. The best way of keeping your filter in the best condition and to give it as long a life as possible is to drive the car on a 30 minute or more journey on open roads at least once per week to give the filter the chance to burn off the particulate matter.
Previously, many people have had DPFs removed as it was a more cost effective solution to replacing them - some manufacturers charging upwards of £2000! As of 2014 however, this is no longer allowed under MOT regulations. Contact your local Longlife dealer who will be able to advise as to what will be the most cost effective solution to getting you back on the road.
For those people who wish to keep the DPF on their vehicle, we are able to offer a supply and fit service for many types of vehicle. Our expertise with DPFs and their installation will ensure that the job is done right first time.
