Common DPF Problems

The Benefits of Our DPF Repairs


DPF Diagnostics

You probably know the struggle Diesel car drivers face in Jersey. Since the driver can’t get to high speeds, the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) filters often get clogged. Definitely a disadvantage, but this is also how our expert mechanics at The Car Clinic perfected our Diesel particulate filter/ DPF repairs and services.
Entrust your car to us, and we’ll strive to repair your car’s DPF in the shortest time possible- as we always do.
Aside from that, all the components we use in our replacements are manufacturer warranty-approved. Back that up with a 12-month warranty on all services that we do, and you’ve got the best car service centre in Jersey.

Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) Repair & Replacement
for All Major Manufacturers

Audi DPF

Give your Audi’s DPF proper and regular maintenance, and it will last up to 100,000 miles. But in case there’s any premature trouble or blocking, our expert Audi mechanics will take care of it. 

Ford DPF

Many Ford drivers conclude that a blocked DPF is one of its most common problems. Make sure to have your Ford DPF cleaned and regularly serviced to avoid more expensive repairs. 

Land Rover DPF

Driving between 60 kilometres per hour and 112 kilometres per hour for about 20 minutes should clear your Land Rover DPF. But if this doesn’t work, your DPF may have other underlying issues. Bring your Land Rover to us so we can take a look at its DPF. 

Nissan DPF

A blocked or faulty Nissan DPF is harmful not only to you but to the environment, as well. If left for longer, it may cause more expensive problems. Don’t wait another day before you have your Nissan DPF repaired or serviced. Our expert Nissan mechanics will do it within a day.

Mercedes DPF

Most Mercedes-Benz models are sensitive regarding the oil their systems will accept. If used with an oil with a high ash content, it can definitely lead to severe clogging of your Mercedes DPF. Drop by our St. Helier garage so our mechanics can take a look and advise you on the right oil to use, as well as clean your clogged DPF. 

Skoda DPF

If you’re expecting your Skoda DPF replacement or repair to break your bank, The Car Clinic will prove you wrong. Have your DPF fixed or cleaned by our trained Skoda mechanics, and you’ll only have to pay half the price of other Skoda service centres. 


Cleaning out your BMW’s DPF will take you around half an hour of driving. This proves a bit challenging if you’re driving for less than that period of time. The Car Clinic has trained BMW technicians that will take care of any issues your DPF may be having. 


Lasting up to 100,000 miles, a Volkswagen’s DPF is pretty average. It requires regular maintenance and cleaning, so you won’t have to encounter icky emission problems along the road. The Car Clinic also has trained Volkswagen technicians that will repair and service your Volks’ DPF at a bargain price. 

Vauxhall DPF

Most Vauxhall diesel cars are painfully prone to blocked DPF filters. Additionally, a blocked Vauxhall DPF can also greatly affect the car’s turbocharger, leading to new issues. Don’t wait until the problem doubles. Give us a call so we can fix and clean your Vauxhall DPF for good.

How often should a DPF be replaced?

Normally, your DPF should be replaced after 100,000 miles.

Can a DPF catch fire?

There are numerous ways through which your car’s DPF could catch fire. One of them is compromising the hydraulic lines. Ignition of combustible fluids can also cause fire, as well as increasing in exhaust gas temperature and pressure while regenerating. 

Which cars have the most DPF problems?

After servicing and repairing thousands of DPFs over the years, the cars Ford Transit, Renault Traffic, Mercedes Sprinter, and Volkswagen Crafter are some of the models that have the most issues with their DPFs.

How long does it take to fix DPF?

Fixing or regenerating a PDF usually takes around 30 minutes to an hour. 

Is it expensive to fix DPF?

DPF repairs usually range between $3,000 to $8,000. Staggering amounts, eh? But at The Car Clinic, services and repairs will only cost you half the price of all service centres in Jersey.

What causes a DPF to crack?

I have used the Car Clinic 3 times now – once to get my battery replaced, once for a service and radiator maintenance and again for a timing belt replacement, and each time I’ve experienced really friendly customer service. The owner and mechanics take time to chat and explain things, which I really appreciated. Now my car is good as new!

Excellent service….again. This is the second time I have used the Car Clinic and each time has been spot on. I took my VW e-golf in for a service and took the opportunity to get the wheels refurbished. When I went to pick it up Shaun (owner) and I agreed one or two of the wheels were not quite perfect. Without question, Shaun offered to get them all redone…….just picked it up and they are like new. Excellent customer service, thank you

A great experience all round. I phoned on the Monday, was booked in for Tuesday and had a full service, battery replacement, brake discs and pads replaced. The car was back with me for Thursday mid-day. The staff at The Car Clinic explained everything in detail and were excellent from start to finish.

Superb service for the car clinic guys, very honest and helpful mechanics. I have used them several times and its refreshing to actually encounter mechanics that upfront with you and don’t try to sell you something you don’t need. I would recommend their services to anyone who is looking a top notch garage to service and fix their motor.
