Removing the DPF from your Nissan Navara can be a bit scary if you’re not sure what it’s all about.

Firstly we’d recommend taking time to understand how the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) operates. If you’re unsure how a DPF operates, then please check out our Diesel Particulate Filter & DPF Removals Article.

Nissan Navara DPF Problems
The Nissan Navara DPF is very large and sits half way down the exhaust on the middle section. It traps particulate soot and then requires to reach very high temperatures for prolonged periods of time (motorway journeys) in order to successfully burn off the particulate soot matter via a process called “Regeneration”.

When the exhaust gasses exit the engine & turbo they can be in excess of 800 degrees Celsius  however, the problem is that by the time the gasses reach the middle section of the exhaust where the DPF sits.. they could be as low as 400 degrees Celsius – this will vary on weather conditions and driving conditions. So, the DPF won’t reburn all the particulate soot matter and it will continue to block up.

DPF Light OnBlocked DPF Dangers Of A Nissan Navara
If your DPF has become blocked, it is strongly recommended that you don’t drive the vehicle unless necessary. A lot of people now days are driving their vehicles around with blocked DPF’s until it’s absolutely 100% blocked to the point where it loses all power and in some cases breaks down and cuts the engine out. The longer you leave it, the more damage it will cause.

When the DPF gets blocked, it’s choking the engine. The exhaust gasses are being blocked from exiting the exhaust, this excess build up of back pressure will build up all the way back to the turbo and put a lot of backspin strain on the turbo until eventually it gives up and blows a turbo seal. – You may not know it, but it may have already blown an oil seal and began to leak.. you won’t immediately notice loss of power, that could come further down the line in the future!

After the pressure has blown passed the turbo, it will continue back up into the engine and over pressurise the engine/crankcase. You can imagine, doing so will not be good. We’ve seen headgaskets, oil seals and injector seals blow in extreme cases. Below is a list of problems which can occur when dealing with a blocked DPF.

  • Blown / Leaking Turbocharger
  • Damaged / Burnt Out EGT’s (Exhaust Gas Temperature Sensors)
  • Damaged / Burnt Out Lambda/o2/Oxygen Sensor
  • Damaged Differential (DPF) Pressure Sensor
  • Blocked / Damaged EGR Valve System
  • Over Pressurised Crankcase
  • Blown Headgasket
  • Leaking Injectors
  • Oil Crystallisation

Some issues may not occur straight away, it all depends how long you’ve been driving with a blocked DPF and the driving style that you’ve continued with on a blocked DPF. Local runs even back and fourth to the shops will build up pressure.

Removing Nissan Navara DPF SystemMy Nissan Navara DPF Is Blocked – What Are My Options?
If your Nissan Navara DPF is blocked then you have three choices really.  Firstly, you could attempt a regeneration up the motorway and if that fails, have it force regenerated by a local workshop, however, the more you regenerate the DPF the more you reduce the life of the filter and eventually you’ll find it will become more and more blocked.. quicker & quicker. – Also, each time you forcefully regenerate the DPF you are adding excess strain on the injectors as they’re having to pump fuel at excessive pressures for prolonged periods of time to reach optimum temperatures.

Your second option is the replace the filter with a new part. Never replace a blocked DPF with a used part, there will be no guarantees that it will last. Always used new and genuine parts when replacing a DPF, we’ve had customers replace their filters with copy / aftermarket parts and they always end up back where they started but £300-700 out of pocket for choosing the cheapest option. The DPF system is a poorly designed system to start with, don’t add to the problem by using copy parts.

Your third & last option is to have the DPF system removed completely from the vehicle. Having the DPF removed is very technical and should only be carried out by professionals. Once the DPF has been successfully removed, the vehicle will run a lot better as there will be no excess back pressure and the engine will be able to breath a lot easier. This means the engine can produce more power per stroke of the engine cycle which in turn means better throttle response, more power, better fuel economy and an overall increase in performance. Also, because there is no build up of excess back pressure and the engine & turbo don’t have to work as hard to produce the same amount of power, they are under less strain and so you’ve simultaneously increased the life expectancy of those mechanical components as well as others.

How Can Sinspeed Help Remove My Nissan Navara Blocked DPF
We can successfully remove the entire DPF system from your Nissan Navara, both mechanically & electronically. We have a 4-step system to ensure 100% success rate on all the vehicles we offer DPF Removals for.

  1. First we start by deleting all fault codes and carrying out a full reset on the vehicle – bringing it back to a virgin state.
  2. We then download the data from the Engine Control Module (ECM) also known as the Engine Control Unit (ECU) and manually scan through 1000’s of data strings to locate, delete & modify all DPF data structure strings. This is the ONLY sure way to delete a DPF system completely without problems occurring.
  3. We then physically remove the filter from the exhaust system to release the back pressure build up so that there is no further blockage.
  4. Finally, we carry out a unique smoke-correction service, unique to Sinspeed. By doing so, we can ensure that the vehicle will not smoke and that it will continue to pass it’s MOT.

For more information on this and how we can help, check out our smoke-correction service which is inclusive of a “DPF Removal” by Sinspeed.

  • Hello! I have an Nissan Navara D40 2006 and i have an fault code P 2002.
    I am located i Northern Norway and i do not know any companys that can offer the things you do. Is it possible to do the downloading of data and delete and modify all DPF data structure strings by connection to internett, or do you need the ECM physically at your shop. I can physically remove the filter from the exaust system myself in my own shop.
    Or is it possible for us to get the software and do this at our shop i Norway?
    I guess there is many cars in our area that needs the same service….
    I have been an Nissan mechanic for 20 years but run my own shop now, and it would have been interresting to try to offer this DPF removal service here in Norway.

    Hoping for positive answer 🙂

  • Hi there my Nissan navara feels like there is some lag in it when I go to boot it. It takes a while for it to kick in. Could you be some help to me and let me know want you think it could be ? cheers Alan uk…………

    • Hi Alan

      Thanks for the enquiry,

      It could be a blocked filter causing a build up of excessive back pressure especially at low rpm. Check the turbocharger and EGR valve for excessive carbon build up as this is a good indication of a blocked filter. Also if you have access to Nissan Consult or an equivalent diagnostic system, you can check the DPF back pressure that way to see how blocked it is as well.

      Kind Regards


  • Blessings,
    I have a Nissan Navara aventura 2007 model I imported from the UK. Apparently our local dealership in Zambia Africa does not work on vehicles they do not have a service history. The DPF filter warning light came on a few months ago and after taking long out of town trips at high speeds, it didn’t help. The light went off and came back on, stopped pulling and I packed it. When I start it and rev, it doesn’t go above 2000 rpm.

    I am really impressed with what you can do and I think removing the DPF system is the best option for me .How can you assist me? We also have a problem with our diesel having high sulphur content. Is this a problem?

  • I have a 2007 navara aventura 2.5 diesel with dpf light on. Have read advise on different forums about driving at above 80kmph to unblock the filter. Was exploring the option of removal of the dpf but sure that the ECM requires reprograming. Tell me if yu hve a service centre that can do that for me in Nairobi Kenya and their contacts please. Was hesitant to start removal of the dpf without confidence on who will do the programing for me thanks.
    Also let mr know if the dpf indicator light first warning I’d brght yellowish orange and final warning red is it true.

  • Hi mate my d40 navara went into limp mode we stopped using it the battery went dead it was sat outside for three weeks I charged the battery enough to start it to park in the street . When it was recovered to a local garage the changed the dpf now it won’t turn over at all any ideas

    • Hi Tiny

      Thanks for the question,

      Replacing a DPF will not cause the engine to stop turning over. I would recommend getting it plugged in to a diagnostics to see where the issue and then going from there. You could have a faulty starter motor, ignition failure, ECU fault, fuse/relay.. the list is endless and without diagnostics you’ll be shooting in the dark.

      I hope this helps – if you do get it diagnosed and need further assistance please do not hesitate to come back to me.

      Kind Regards
