Sinspeed’s Current DPF Solutions

How Much Are You Expected To Pay On Average For DPF Repairs?

Ignoring the warning lights and allowing the diesel particulate (soot) loading to continue to build up will lead to complete failure of the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). Most companies will see the DPF Blocked try to regenerate the filter but you can expect the problem to come back – by which point a replacement can cost anything from £800 – £2500 + Labour. These are dealer prices as standard aftermarket (copy) parts are not recommended. After replacing the DPF you will need to reset the ECU which is an additional charge, normally between £45 – £150.

How Can SINSPEED Help Reduce This Cost & What Are The Options?

There’s more than one way to resolve the issues with the DPF system:

If you’re experiencing DPF Problems then we offer a cost-effective chemical cleaning session which takes just 1 day to complete and comes with a no-quibble 6 month warranty. We’re so confident in our solution that if the DPF does fail again within 6 months, we will offer to clean it again under warranty or if damaged beyond repair, contribute towards the cost of replacing the filter. It is far more affective than “forced regenerations” and will save you damaging your DPF system and having to pay out for costly replacement parts.

Our Blocked DPF Solution

Most of our customers prefer to have the DPF removed entirely. We can offer a very affordable DPF Delete service whereby we reprogram the vehicles Engine Control Module (ECM) also known as the Engine Control Unit (ECU) so that you no longer have warning lights being lit up on your dash and at the same time save on fuel costs and gain extra power out of the engine as the DPF system restricts the natural flow of exhaust gasses. Reprogramming the ECU will also eliminate the possibility of the engine running into LIMP Mode caused by the DPF system.

The DPF-Delete session will be just the programming part using our very own bespoke dpf removal software, but we also offer a complete DPF Filter Removal service at very affordable prices and with warranties.

Both options are very affordable here at Sinspeed, for a quote today just call us on 0844 847 9999

Will a Particulate Filter Removal Cause Me To Fail An MOT?

From February 2014 the law is changing to include the visual inspection of the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) during your MOT inspection. Although our services are very discreet and our smoke-correction ensures the vehicle won’t smoke, we are offering our removal sessions as an “Off-Road” service.

Warning – Cheap DPF Removal Companies

Some companies & mobile agents use “Automated DPF-Deletion” software. It’s easier for them because they can simply plug a laptop into your car, download the ECU data.. run it through the software and then write it back to the ECU. What the software does is using pre-set parameters, it attempts to scan & detect all DPF file structures that are known to the software and delete them accordingly.

So what’s the problem with this? – Simply put, this software fails to remove 100% of the DPF file structure on even the simplest of ECU’s and in result of this you will be left with data corruption / errors and problems (if not immediately) then in the months to follow. Further to this, no other company in the whole of the UK & possibly Europe currently offers a Smoke-Correction Service (Many are incapable of carrying out this specialist procedure). We include this so you get complete peace of mind.

What we do is unique, we download the ECU data and manually flow through the 1000’s of data strings to locate, modify & delete all DPF-related data structure strings. This is the ONLY sure way to delete a DPF system completely without problems occurring but we don’t stop their, we then go on to carry out a smoke-correction service – This will ensure the vehicle will NOT smoke. No other company offers this service!!
