Vauxhall Vectra 1.9CDTi DPF ProblemsVauxhall Vectra DPF Removal
Much like the DPF Removal service on the Vauxhall Zafira and Vauxhall Combo, we offer the same DPF removal service for the Vauxhall Vectra. They share the same DPF system and so the same weaknesses.  If you own a modern diesel Vauxhall then you may be aware of the problems experienced by 100′s of motorists nationwide.

For more information on DPF’s (Diesel Particulate Filters), how they work and our services.. check out our in-depth article on Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF) Problems & DPF Removal Procedures.

Having DPF Problems With Your Vauxhall Vectra?
The majority of our customers who come to us with blocked DPF problems on the Vauxhall Vectra tell us that they are using the vehicle for local commuting and taxi driving in built up areas – mainly in and around London/M25. The Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) requires very high temperatures for prolonged periods of time in order to self-clean via a process called DPF Regeneration.

If you are using the vehicle for regular local commuting and stop/start traffic driving and short journeys then the DPF system will not reach the optimum temperatures for long enough periods and so will fail to self-clean and fail to perform successful DPF Regenerations. – This is why the DPF gets blocked up.

When the Vauxhall Vectra DPF gets blocked, it is critical to get the problem resolved – sooner rather than later. If the DPF is left blocked and you continue to drive like this, then the excess back pressure can cause further issues such as some of the following:

  • Turbo Damage (Seals & Bearings)
  • Carbon Backup
  • Injector Seals
  • Over Pressurised Crank Case
  • Engine Seals Failure
  • Blocked / Damaged EGR Valve

To avoid expensive problems, it is highly recommended that if you experience any DPF related problems, you should have the faults diagnosed and rectified immediately.

My Vauxhall Vectra DPF Is Blocked – What Are My Options?
If your Vauhall Vectra DPF is blocked up, then you have two options – either replace the filter with a new genuine part or have it professionally removed. We do not recommend having the DPF forcefully regenerated because carrying out forced regenerations does put excess strain on the injectors having to squirt diesel at high pressure for prolonged periods of time to reach optimal temperatures in order to aid a successful DPF Regeneration – even if it is successful, it is almost guaranteed that the problem will persist or at least come back in the future.
A new genuine filter replacement can be very costly, a typical DPF filter replacement can cost as much as £1500 +VAT (+Labour).It would only be recommended to regenerate the DPF forcefully by taking to your local dealership if you’re planning to sell the vehicle to someone with a more suited driving style or change your own driving style – otherwise it really will be a waste of time and money.

 

Vauxhall Vectra Blocked DPF SolutionsHow Do You Remove My Vauxhall Vectra DPF?
We offer a completely bespoke & custom DPF Removal solution which saves breaking the bank. In fact, the entire process from start to finish costs a fraction of the price of a replacement filter alone and our guarantees are second to none. We operate a 4-stage custom DPF removal session which consists of the following:

  1. Delete fault codes & reset ECU (Turn off Engine/DPF light)
  2. Physical removal of DPF filter (Removing the blocked DPF completely & permanently)
  3. Custom Sinspeed DPF Removal software – bespoke to your vehicle
  4. Smoke-Correction service to guarantee an MOT pass – Unique to Sinspeed DPF Removals

Because our DPF Removal software is custom and bespoke to your vehicle, we guarantee a 100% success rate. We download the files from the vehicles on-board computer (ECU) and then manually scan through the 1000′s of data strings to modify and delete all DPF related data strings. Some data strings for the DPF system may be interlinked with other sensors such as:

  • EGT Sensors (Exhaust Gas Temperature Sensors)
  • Lambda / o2 / Oxygen Sensors
  • EGR System (Exhaust Gas Recirculation System)

In such cases, we will modify the data strings to remove the DPF settings whilst leaving the other sensors and systems in tact and fully functional. The difference here is that many other companies are using automated softwares which will accidentally delete these data strings and this is where problems occur in the future.

We only offer DPF removals with a 100% success rate, a life time software warranty and a guaranteed MOT pass thanks to our Smoke-Correction Service. To find out more about our smoke-correction service, please check out our smoke-correction article.

Removing the DPF will not cause you to fail an MOT, we can guarantee this. It will not bring up any error messages and the car will not go into LIMP mode. Also, you will never experience any Regeneration messages where the ECU normally attempts to clean the DPF – this is because the DPF is no longer existing.

Finally, you will experience an overall increase in performance, smoothing out any flat spots and safeguard the life of both your engine & turbocharger.

      Hi Aamir

      Thank you for your enquiry,

      This is a very common fault. You’d be suprised how many Vectra’s and Zafira’s we have coming through our doors each week. I would recommend having the DPF completely removed and at the same time we can professionally de-activate the EGR from the ECU as well. This will enhance the fuel economy which I appreciate is very important in your line of work. You will also get an increase in performance as well.

      For pricing and more information, please email our support team or call us on 0844 847 9999. We now have 5 workshops across the UK and also operate in Ireland to offer a true nationwide service.

      Kindest Regards

    Hi – I have a Vectra 1,9cdti 120bhp 58 plate. The power has always been rubbish and after an engine sieze I paid for an expensive full rebuild including new turbo/egr/waterpump/oilpump/crank amonghst others. Now the engine sounds fine but STILL has little or poor power (unless you push the turbo at 3-4000rpm) – then the smoke fills the streets. After this a short period of relief and the powers back. Now I have notices there’s a weird ‘buzzing/whizz’ noise mid exhaust area. The buzzing starts about 2 seconds after start. Is this the DPF failing or restricting me? I have no lights on at all, just crap power that’s only cured by a short blast. It’s also a TAXI. This car has cost me thousands over the years.

      Hi John

      Thank you for your enquiry,

      It definitely sounds like you’ve experienced on-going DPF related issues and it is possible to have a blocked DPF restricting your power and performance without any warning errors. I would definitely recommend a DPF Removal and to not drive the vehicle unless absolutely necessary until the DPF removal has been carried out. If you continue to drive and do have a blocked DPF, you could damage the new engine, turbo, egr and injectors.

      For a quotation, please call our offices on 0844 847 9999 or alternatively email us.

      Kindest Regards

    Hi
    I have an Vectra c cdti 1.9 150bhp 2007 with DPF. I would also like to have my DPF removed. Both psysically and in the software. But i am from Denmark, so using you guys is a bit hard.
    But maybe i could have you explain have the DPF removal is done. Is there any hoses, pipes and sensors that i should connect in to the new replacement pipe. And when i have the DPF removed, is it then safe driving the car to my mapper, and haing the DPF deleted from the software???
