If you own a diesel car, you probably have a diesel particulate filter, however, you may not know exactly what this is or what it means for you, so here we explain exactly what they are, what they do, why you need them and how to maintain them.
Diesel particulate filters have been fitted to diesel-fuel cars for almost two decades now – if you’re buying one new or nearly-new, it’s almost certain it will be equipped with one.
A diesel particulate filter (DPF) is a filter that captures and stores exhaust soot (some refer to them as soot traps) in order to reduce emissions from diesel cars. But because they only have a finite capacity, this trapped soot periodically has to be emptied or ‘burned off’ to regenerate the DPF.
If the DPF is becoming clogged with soot or a fault develops in the system, an orange light will typically appear on the dashboard.
