WHAT IS A DPF?
A Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF or FAP for short) is a filter found in the downpipe section of the exhaust and is specifically designed to reduce the amount of Diesel Particulate Matter (Soot/Ash) passing through. The objective of this filter is to create cleaner / more eco friendly exhaust gases being released into the atmosphere.
A diesel particulate filter will gradually become restricted and more clogged up as a normal part of it’s service life. A process called regeneration is designed to occasionally ‘clear out’ the particulate filter. Unfortunately this needs specific driving conditions and when these are not met, the degree to which the filter is blocked can surpass the engine managements ability to regenerate the filter – leading to problems with power loss (see detailed list below) and even in the absolute worst case, risk to the car due to overheating of the filter.
A blocked DPF can cause many problems including loss of power, economy and throttle response. With more extreme cases, filters that are extremely blocked can cause the engine not to start at all.

AdBlue (SCR) Removal
AdBlue is a chemical liquid used in Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) on diesel vehicles in order to reduce NOx levels.
The AdBlue fluid (urea and demineralized water) is injected into the exhaust system just before the SCR catalyst.
The introduction of AdBlue into the exhaust gasses generates a chemical reaction inside the SCR Cat which results in NOx
being converted into Nitrogen and Water Vapor.
AdBlue was introduced by vehicle manufacturers in order to hit the stringent emission targets set out by governmental bodies.
AdBlue is sometimes referred to as DEF (Diesel Exhaust Fluid).
The AdBlue and SCR system is a relatively complex system with an array of electronic sensors, modules and pumps, these systems can fail and can be expensive to maintain.
A vehicle which is used on a regular basis will consume a large amount of AdBlue and the tank will need to be refilled on a regular basis.
Our AdBlue delete service will electronically disable the AdBlue system along with removing the associated dashboard lights and warning messages.
Disabling the AdBlue system is normally completed by reprogramming the engine management system
however some vehicles will require a small electronic unit to be hardwired into the vehicle.
PLEASE NOTE :
Our AdBlue delete service is strictly sold as an off-road use only product, driving your vehicle on the road with an AdBlue delete could result in prosecution.
Our HGV and Agricultural AdBlue service is to be used only for vehicles which are to be exported outside of the European Union.
