Problem diesel filters Key points:
  • Lawyers are anticipating multiple class actions against car dealers over diesel particulate filter (DPF) issues
  • DPFs are meant to trap and burn emissions
  • Instead, drivers are being told soot is building up because they are not regularly driving their cars on open roads


Peter Banks was driving down a busy freeway flanked by traffic on the outskirts of Adelaide when his car suddenly lost acceleration.

“All the cars around me are going really fast. The ones on my right are going very fast, the ones behind me are banking up, and on my left there’s a number of semi-trailers going down the slow lane,” he said.

“I was absolutely stuck, I was quite flummoxed.”

After he managed to manoeuvre his Volkswagen Tiguan through the traffic and onto a suburban street, he and his wife realised thick white smoke was pouring from the exhaust.

“We managed to [...]

What Causes a Diesel Particulate Filter Blockage?


Short journeys at low speeds are the prime cause of blocked diesel particulate filters.

This is why car makers but not the sales person often go as far as recommending city-bound short-hop drivers choose a petrol car instead of diesel (and it’s why diesels are something of a rarity in the city car sector).

Other things that are bad for DPFs include poor servicing. A diesel particulate filter on a poorly serviced car may fail sooner than a well maintained one, generally, they should last for at least 180,000 kms

It’s important you use the right type of oil as well – some oils contain additives that can actually block filters.

What is a Low Emission Zone – everything you need to know a diesel particulate filter using low-quality fuel and even running the car frequently on a low fuel level as the car may avoid DPF [...]

We had this BMW 320i in for a Hydrogen Carbon Clean.

Upon closer inspection we found it was blowing excessive blue smoke on idle and had very high NOX levels at 503ppm caused by worn valve guides.

After some JLM injector cleaner & Stop Smoke oil additive, followed with 30mins on our hydrogen machine, the NOX levels dropped to 83ppm.

A huge improvement and the car now has a much better throttle response.

DPF Cleaning DPF Cleaning perth

We went out to a 2013 Holden Captiva 2.2 Diesel in Piara Waters that needed it’s DPF cleaning.

The customer messaged us as they were having DPF trouble. The dealer wanted $$$$$$ for new one and said this was the only way forward.

After carrying out our DPF assessment we found a serious issue regarding the running of the engine caused by a split intake pipe (very common fault on the diesel Captiva & Cruze).

Once this was fixed by us with an upgraded much stronger pipe we were able to clean out the DPF on the vehicle using the JLM lubricants DPF 2 stage cleaning solution for a lot less than the dealer wanted!

The Captiva is now running like a dream and we also gave the rear [...]
