DPF Cleaning (Diesel Particulate Filter)

 

DPF Cleaning is the process of removing your DPF and using specialised machinery to unblock the filter and let the engine exhaust correctly. We use a process called flash cleaning. The machinery we use involves an investment of over £30,000 and needs to be shipped in from Italy.

WHAT WE OFFER

We offer a full removal, professional cleaning (not re-generation), and re-fitting service from £250 + Vat.

Call our workshop for availability on 01792 477 555 (Option 2)

Please note that this service is not an ON VEHICLE cleaning service, these are a regeneration (see below) and are not as efficient or as long lasting as the service we offer.

We use top of the range technology for a safe, thorough clean of your DPF. DPF replacement can be very costly, whereas cleaning can save you a great deal of money.

  • High success rate within a 48hr turnaround
  • 12 month ‘No Quibble’ Guarantee
  • No charge if we can’t clean your DPF
  • Unrivalled, expert customer service

 

A PROFESSIONAL LONG TERM SOLUTIONdpf cleaning light

DPF cleaning is the only professional long term solution for DPF problems other than a costly replacement (Around £1200!)

WE  OFFER A FULL PROFESSIONAL CLEANING SERVICE FOR CAR AND LIGHT COMMERCIAL DIESEL PARTICULATE FILTERS (DPF’s)

Prices Start at £250 + Vat with 12 months ‘No Quibble Guarantee!

What is a DPF?

A diesel particulate filter (DPF) is a device which sits in the exhaust system, it “captures” soot / diesel particulate and other nasty particles so they are not released into atmosphere.  A diesel particulate filter can remove upwards of 85% of the particles from the exhaust, reducing harmful emissions.

The DPF physically captures the soot and ash particles in a net or mesh like structure within the filter.

DPF regeneration / cleaningdpf cleaning

There are two different types of DPF regeneration that are commonly used. These are active and passive. Which ever your car uses you’ll still have to meet some strict conditions in order for the regeneration to start. It’s usually a combination of engine temperature, speed and RPM. A rule of thumb is that the engine needs to have reached normal operating temperature, you’re travelling at more than 40MPH and the RPM (revs) of your engine is at least 2500 RPM. Depending on how blocked or effective your regeneration will determine how long it needs to be performed.

DPF Regeneration Conditions

  • Engine at normal operating temperature
  • At least 40MPH
  • At least 2500RPM
  • Fingers crossed!

BELOW IS AN EXPLANATION OF THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF REGENERATION (CLEANING).

Active Regeneration

Active regeneration of the DPF is performed by the ECU triggering a post combustion fuel injection. This increases the temperature in the DPF, burning off the soot and particles that build up in the filter. This type of regeneration can cause higher than normal fuel usage.

Passive Regeneration

Passive DPF regeneration takes place automatically on motorway-type runs when the exhaust temperature is high. Many manufacturers have moved to using active regeneration as many motorists do not often drive prolonged distances at motorway speeds. Passive regeneration often uses a DPF additive

What is a DPF additive?

Some manufactures utilise a DPF additive which is automatically added to the fuel. This additive is used to increase the chance of a passive regeneration. The additive allows the soot and ash to be “burnt” at a much lower temperature than that required during an active regeneration. The additive is usually replenished during servicing as part of manufactures guidelines.

Forced Regeneration

Forced regeneration is a way of cleaning the DPF using a maintenance process which has been built in by the vehicle manufacturer. This process can only be started by either a main dealer / mechanic with the right tools and access to the vehicles management systems. This process usually involves kicking off a DPF clean cycle in the workshop which runs the car at a high RPM for a considerable period of time. The ECU ensures that this cycle heats up the DPF filter to an extreme temperature, burning off the contents of the filter. It some cases the ECU injects fuel into the post combustion process to achieve these temperatures. In most cases the engine oil will need to be changed as the vehicle will literally “cook” the lubricant.

Can I clean my DPF and do cleaning additives actually work?

This type of product is very new to the market, targeting those suffering with DPF issues.

 

Do DPF cleaning additives work?

NO. Fuel additives have been attributed with reducing emissions and soot from the fuel burning process which could reduce the chance of the DPF being blocked. Claims that an additive can unblock the DPF and extinguish the warning light are simply untrue. By the time the additive has been through the combustion process there will be very little left and certainly won’t be capable of unblocking the DPF.

Can I remove my DPF?

Due to the high costs of replacing diesel particulate filters, a whole industry has emerged around removing the devices completely (DPF removal). This involves replacing the unit with a pass through pipe or modifying the existing unit and removing the mesh or filters inside.

The removal of the DPF will cause an ECU error and therefore the service will  also include the removal of the error and re- programming from the ECU software.

The marketing of these services often includes claims of reduced running costs, extra power and increased efficiency. Recent evidence shows when a Diesel Particulate Filter has been removed, rather than cleaned or replaced, the back pressure of which the turbo relies on is altered. This results in the turbo charger performance being seriously affected which will lead to its inevitable early failure, and another very costly issue to deal with.

FROM FEBRUARY 2014 THIS PROCESS IS ILLEGAL

THE FOLLOWING IS TAKEN FROM THE GOV.UK WEBSITE.

Tests for diesel cars and lorries are to be tightened up to ensure vehicles have a critical exhaust filter if one had originally been fitted as standard, Roads Minister Robert Goodwill has announced.

Garages and testing stations will be required to check for a diesel particulate filter (DPF) in the inspection of the exhaust system as part of the MOT test (or annual test for heavy vehicles) from February 2014.

The vehicle will automatically fail the MOT test if the filter had been fitted as standard but is found to be no longer present.

The filter works by trapping solid particulate matter from exhaust gases. This type of filter has been in use for more than 20 years and helps meet European emission standards, improving air quality and health standards.

Some firms offer services to remove the filter, claiming it will improve the economy. But it is an offence to drive a vehicle that has been modified this way, as it will no longer meet the emissions standards the car achieved when it was approved for sale in the UK.

Roads Minister Robert Goodwill said:

I am very concerned that vehicles are being modified in a way that is clearly detrimental to people’s health and undoes the hard work car manufacturers have taken to improve emissions standards. It has become apparent the government had to intervene to clarify the position on particulate filter removal given the unacceptable negative impact on air quality.

This change to the MOT tests makes it clear – if you have this filter removed from your car it will fail the test.

Headlamp Polishing

The service takes roughly 30 mins (per headlamp) and can be done while you wait in our comfortable reception. Headlamp polishing is now commonplace as more and more vehicle manufacturers are making headlights from clear plastic which does not react very well to heat and is not very resistant to scratches.

The Cost

We charge just £30 per headlight for our renovation service. This will save you £167.98 using this example from Euro Car Parts! There is no need to spend hundreds of pounds on new headlights when we can offer you headlamp polishing at a fraction of the cost.

The Results

The results speak for themselves! The headlights look new and the headlamp beam is now restored meaning you won’t need to worry about the MOT or driving during the night! We offer a full 12 month guarantee on all our headlamp polishing services. Should your headlamps need polishing again within the 12 months you had them done with us, we will polish them again for you completely free of charge while you wait.

Use the slider to see the before and after results on a Renault Laguna we polished for an MOT test.

Dull or disfigured beam pattern can not only make your vehicle fail it’s MOT test, itbl-4 can also make driving at nights very dangerous! Most modern vehicles are now using plastic headlamp lenses which over time get discoloured and dull. This reduces the impact of your headlamp bulbs and can cause complete distortion of the headlamp beam pattern which is designed for ultimate vision at night without glaring other drivers on the road.

To book your headlight polishing and restoration service, simply call us on 01792 477 555 and we will tell you the best time to pop in and have the service done.

You can either leave us the vehicle for the day or have a while you wait service.

Why You Should Have Your Wheel Alignment Checked

Wheel alignment is one of the major reasons a vehicle will wear tyres and also suffer with bad fuel economy. It is estimated that 1 in 3 cars are driving with the incorrect wheel alignment on the roads in the UK! Swansea Tyre, Clutch & MOT Centre have the very latest Hunter Hawkeye Laser Alignment Equipment. You are able to sit in our comfortable reception area and watch your vehicle have its tracking/wheel alignment adjusted on our big screen. The process only takes a few minutes but can save you hundreds of pounds in badly worn tyres.

Having bad wheel alignment is also very dangerous as your vehicle will not have the correct grip on the road, especially in wet or slippery conditions.

honda having wheel alignment

Our Technicians are fully trained and qualified to adjust your wheel alignment. There are many forms of wheel alignment (commonly known as tracking). The most common adjustment is TOE this is the directional pull of the wheel and the most common to be out of adjustment. This is normally due to kerb parking, constant clipping of kerbs can damage the steering arms and knock the TOE out of alignment. This will normally cause the car to pull to the left or the right and can also wear your tyres on the outer or inner edges.

Camber adjustment is the horizontal adjustment of the wheels. This is where the vehicle will run on the outer edge of the tyre (positive camber) or the inner edge of the tyre (negative camber) most lowered vehicles will experience negative camber which will normally wear tyres on the inner edge.

We are able to adjust both TOE & CAMBER on our wheel alignment machine. We can also adjust THRUST ANGLE. This is the forward motion of the steering alignment (imagine looking at the wheel and thrust would be the way a pendulum swings).

Our equipment is the very best money can buy and we are able to work with “custom” set up vehicles too! Should you feel your car pulling to the left or the right or experience worn tyres then we can fix this issue in no time at all! Simply call us on 01792 477 555 to book your FREE wheel alignment check TODAY!

*Front Adjustment only. Some models may cost a little more. Please ask for details before booking.

Air Conditioning Regas at Swansea Tyre Clutch & MOT Centre

If you are looking for Air Conditioning Regas (Air Con) then we can help! We regas Air Conditioning in vehicles of all makes and models while you wait. Swansea Tyre, Clutch & MOT Centre are an air conditioning recharge centre based in Swansea

You may feel that your air con is not as cold as it once was, this is because your gas may need refilling. Over time, your air conditioning gas can permeate through the system. This is because as the gas cools your vehicle, it is constantly changing from gas to liquid and then to gas again. When your gas gets low, your air is not as cool and this will mean you need to have your air conditioning gas refilled.

Why is my air conditioning not working?

There are many reasons why your air conditioning may not be blowing as cold as you once experienced. The reasons could be as simple as needing a refrigerant gas top up and service to a leak in the system. Occasionally we found that vehicles have mechanical issues such as air conditioning compressors or belts which have failed. Either way, we are able to diagnose and fix any issues you may have with your vehicles air conditioning system while you wait!

air conditioning rega

How do you recharge (regas) air con?

We recharge your air conditioning using a special Dephi Air Conditioning Recharge machine. This involves removing all the existing refrigerant gas from your system (including any residual moisture). We then replace this with fresh gas refrigerant. Our machine can both, degas and regas any vehicle air conditioning unit within minutes. 

How often do you need to regas or recharge air conditioning?

Typically, the manufacturers advise every 2 years. This is because even if you don’t use your air conditioning often the gas will still permeate through the system. Keeping your air conditioning recharged and topped up will ensure you always have a blast of cool air when needed.

What if my air conditioning smells bad?

This is due to stale air in your system and can sometimes smell like smelly feet or old milk. Don’t worry, this is something we can help with. Your system needs a good clean and refresh to remove the bacteria that is causing the smell. With every air conditioning service we provide, we offer an anti bacterial clean and refresh service too. This will include changing of your pollen or cabin filter and an anti bacterial “bomb” put in your vehicle to kill all the germs. This will leave your vehicle smelling fresh and your air conditioning blowing cool once again.

How long does it take to recharge my air conditioning?

Depending on which vehicle you have, our air conditioning regas service takes roughly 45-50 minutes to complete. This is assuming you have no leaks in the system and we have the cabin filter available.

How does air conditioning work?

air conditioning regas

Air conditioning is a clever science. We will do our best to explain the science behind it now. Every air conditioning system has a compressor which contains the gas refrigerant we have been speaking about. When you turn on your air con in your vehicle, the gas then travels to something called a condenser (a bit like a radiator). Air from outside the car then travels over the condenser and the temperature of the gas drops quickly causing the gas to turn to liquid. Whilst it is in liquid from, it now travels through a drier which “cleans” the liquid which removes any impurities before it gets to the thermal expansion valve (this is the control which you use in the vehicle to control the temperature by adjusting the liquid flow). Then the liquid is turned into vapour as it passes through evaporation coils and returns the vapour (gas) back to the compressor to start the process again.

Fuel Economy Remaps

Saving Fuel With an Economy Remap?

When we remap a vehicle, especially when fuel saving is the priority we focus on improving the low end torque in particular and widening the power-band as far as we can.

This increase in low end torque will mean less throttle pedal input is required to maintain cruising speeds, when fully laden or when on a gradient. It will also mean that the vehicle will be more comfortable in higher gears at slower speeds as well requiring fewer gear changes overall.

If you combine these factors with adjusting your driving style to make the most of the extra low end torque you will see an improvement in fuel consumption. This is most effective on turbo-diesel engines where the savings could be as much as 20%!

WHAT DO YOU ACTUALLY MODIFY IN MY VEHICLE?

We do not change any hardware in your vehicle, we just modify the operating parameters in the ECU’s program or ‘map’. In many cases the map stored on the ECU’s processor can be accessed via the on-board diagnostics port (OBD) in the vehicle, normally found under the dashboard. In some newer models the ECU will have to be removed from the vehicle and the casing opened, our technicians will then use specialist tools to read the original map straight from the processing chip.

The technician will then upload the original map to our map writing team who will adjust the parameters to maximise the performance, fuel economy or a clever blend of both. Depending on the vehicle and ECU type the remapping process can take under an hour and if at any time you wish to return your vehicles ECU to its original default settings, this can be done easily and free of charge as we always keep a copy of the original software as a backup.

IS AN ECU REMAP LEGAL?

YES – There is nothing illegal about remapping an ECU on an engine. Although you should inform your insurance company of any alterations made to the vehicle.

HOW DO I BOOK A REMAP?

You can call us on our Business number: 01792 477 555. Our Team will be happy to help you. We give 30 day money back guarantee, in case if you are not satisfied with our service.

Fleet Remaps

We’re certain that your bottom-line is the key figure for your business and the simple fact is that the fuel price increase of over 20% in the last year has had a catastrophic impact on many companies. However, a number of progressive thinking business owners have taken advantage of the situation by using our Fleet Remapping service to drive down their fuel costs by up to 15%*, vastly improving their competitive position and massively increasing their profitability. It doesn’t matter what type of business you own or run, we can guarantee that within days your business will be performing better with our Fleet Remapping solution.

Fleet Speed Limiting

As well as saving fuel we can also limit most vehicles to specific speeds. This helps your company to maintain a good reputation for good driving and not speeding, whilst improving your fuel economy also. Did you know commercial vehicles and cars are most efficient at 56mph?.. Benefits of RPM & Maximum Speed Limiters include:

  • Prevents the driver from cruising at high speeds saving fuel.
  • Prevents the driver from hard driving, typically limited to 3,000rpm, saving fuel.
  • Increases engine longevity due to more sedate driving.
  • Can increase service times for variable service schedules.
  • Reduces overall CO2 output.
  • Saves Money.

Power Remaps

BENEFITS OF ECU REMAPPING & Power Remaps.

ECU remapping will not only improve the engines power and torque figures, it will also sharpen the throttle response and widen the power-band. This will make the power delivery a lot more linear, which in turn will make the vehicle feel a lot livelier to drive and the engine more flexible. Frequently, the vehicles power output is restricted by the manufacturer for no other reason than to ensure that the vehicle fits into a class to suit fleet buyers. As a driving enthusiast, you do not need or want such restrictions placed upon your vehicles ECU and its performance therefore you can benefit from the hidden power and torque locked away within your engine management system.The other main benefit of power remaps will be a reduction in fuel consumption. With the extra torque especially at the bottom of the rev range you will see a fuel saving, as it will require less throttle input to maintain motorway speeds, you can drive in a higher gear at a slower speed as well as helping significantly when fully laden, towing or on gradients and even in start stop traffic.

ECU REMAPPING BENEFITS FOR TURBOCHARGED DIESEL ENGINES

Many see the modern crop of Turbocharged diesels as the future of road car tuning. These engines offer fantastic potential for reliable low cost tuning without removing any of the appeal of buying and running a turbo diesel powered vehicle, such as economy, reliability and longevity.

After your ECU upgrade to your turbocharged diesel engine, you will enjoy:

  • Increased horsepower
  • Increased torque
  • Better throttle response
  • Smoother power delivery
  • Improved fuel economy
  • Safer overtaking

ECU REMAPPING BENEFITS FOR TURBOCHARGED PETROL ENGINES

Turbocharged petrol engines have always been regarded as the sports flagship engine for good reason. They boast far higher power & torque figures than a non-turbocharged power-plant with similar displacement and are usually fitted to the manufacturer’s flagship models. They are also ideal candidates for remapping as the ECU also controls the waste-gate (turbo boost pressure control).

After your ECU upgrade to your turbocharged petrol engine, you will enjoy:

  • Increased horsepower
  • Increased torque
  • Better throttle response
  • Smoother power delivery
  • Safer overtaking

Improvements in fuel consumption on petrol engine vehicles are smaller and nothing like that achieved by diesel vehicles.

ECU REMAPPING BENEFITS FOR NON-TURBOCHARGED PETROL ENGINES

The normally aspirated petrol engine, whilst not being the easiest of engines to tune, can still benefit from a 8-15% power increase with added torque by careful reprogramming of various engine parameters within the map. Parameters such as the fuel and ignition curves can be fine-tuned to give better power & torque output. On some engines the camshaft timing can also be tuned within the map, giving additional improvements.

In many cases, ‘after market’ tuning items such as freer flowing exhausts, high flow air filters and re-profiled camshafts can only be fully utilised by the engine once the necessary adjustments have been made within the ECU. Careful recalibration of the correct maps can unlock the potential of your new engine parts. Further power gains may also be available when a higher octane fuel is used, allowing for more ignition timing.
