Have you noticed a loss of power and poor fuel economy in your diesel vehicle? Or has your diesel had more frequent and lengthy regeneration cycles? This could be due to a soot overloaded diesel particulate filter.
Diesel exhaust flows through a diesel particulate filter (DPF), where soot and larger particles are captured, allowing only filtered exhaust gases to pass through. When the DPF soot level reaches a certain point, the engine’s computer triggers regeneration (self-cleaning). During regeneration, exhaust temperatures must become hot enough to burn built-up soot off the DPF.
However, in some driving conditions, such as excessive idle or frequent low-speed driving, the DPF won’t trigger the regeneration. Without the self-cleaning function, the DPF will quickly become too clogged with particles to function efficiently.
The BG DPF & Emissions System Restoration Service cleans up the exhaust system by using equipment to trigger and control the regeneration process. BG Diesel Performance Oil Change Service completes this service to diminish the tendency for the DPF to overload with excess soot, enabling it to self-clean more effectively in the future.
