Land Rover and Range Rover Specialists in Bexleyheath
DPF Cleaning at our Trusted Independent Garage in Dartford

If you have a diesel car, particularly a Land Rover or a Range Rover, it is likely your model has a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) fitted. Legislation in 2009 made this a legal requirement to help lower CO2 emissions. It is important to keep the DPF clean to maintain the performance of your engine. When you come to our trusted independent garage in Dartford for car servicing, we can inspect the filter and offer DPF cleaning to you at the exact same time.

Dartford Transmissions and Autocare Ltd cares about the performance of the diesel models bought to us by customers and clients from Bexleyheath.

We are Land Rover specialists and Range Rover specialists, but we can work on all makes and models with a DPF. For optimal performance, we can also offer a full mega flush service, and manual and automatic gearbox repairs.

What is a DPF Filter?

DPF filters capture and store exhaust soot to reduce emissions. This soot needs to empty periodically to regenerate the DPF and to ensure it continues working effectively. Since 2009, all new diesel models must have a DPF fitted. It is illegal to remove the filter. Doing so can result in a fine of up to £1,000 on cars or £2,500 on vans. Removing a DPF may also invalidate your insurance.

As Land Rover specialists and Range Rover specialists with an understanding of diesel models from all major manufacturers, we offer car servicing and DPF cleaning for even the most complex systems. This includes a mega flush of your automatic transmission, if needed, to exchange up to 99.9% of the fluid.

This assists Bexleyheath customers by reducing the potential for transmission failure and the added cost of automatic gearbox repairs.

Effect on Engine Performance

Regular DPF cleaning from our trusted independent garage ensures that any diesel model brought in from Bexleyheath for car servicing can also maintain good engine performance by having a clean diesel particulate filter. As the DPF collects more soot, the efficiency of your engine decreases. If you have an upcoming MOT inspection, your vehicle could fail the emissions test.

Scheduled car servicing improves your driving experience and extends the lifespan of your vehicle’s systems. As well as servicing and DPF cleaning, our engineers offer a range of services for achieving maximum performance:

  • Automatic Gearbox Repairs
  • Mega Flush
  • In-Depth Diagnostics
  • MOT Testing
  • Engine Remapping

Because we are experts in the BMW and Jaguar marques as well as Land Rover specialists and Range Rover specialists for the Bexleyheath area, we provide dealership-standard diagnostics specific to these complex systems.

How to Maintain a DPF Filter

DPF filters regenerate themselves while you drive your vehicle and the best way to maintain your filter is to make sure it is fully capable of regeneration. There are passive and active forms of regeneration so, for more information on these, please contact us or visit our trusted independent garage. If neither process works and the warning light remains on, it is important to let the professionals on our team inspect your vehicle as soon as possible.

Ignoring a problem can result in serious issues which are expensive to fix.

With DPF cleaning available on and off the vehicle, we restore filters to full working order. When you come to us from Bexleyheath for car servicing, we can carry out a full diagnostic inspection, perform a mega flush and clean your DPF. We are here to deliver the most suitable and effective solutions.

We are trained in all car transmission systems and specialise in both manual and automatic gearbox repairs. If you are experiencing any issues with your gearbox or exhaust, or if you need our Land Rover specialists and Range Rover specialists to advise on DPF management for your prestige marque, the dependable team at Dartford Transmissions and Autocare Ltd can help.
