A DPF can decrease performance of an engine if choked. It can cause vehicle to perform in limp mode or restricted mode to regulate diesel emissions. All new diesel Toyota hilux have DPF
Diesel engines produce lots of soot. This particulate matter can cause respiratory and cardiovascular problems. Euro emission standards made it mandatory in 2009 for a diesel vehicle to have a particulate filter. The main purpose of this filter is to stop and absorb the diesel soot from passing into the atmosphere. The aim of DPF / SCR is to reduce more than 80% soot. A choked DPF can actually cause more harm than good both to the atmosphere and the engine of the vehicle. DPF and SCR is present in most German vehicles such as Mercedes ,BMW and Audi, All new generation DPF,s have a dosing system.
A DPF is more or less always located just after the exhaust headers on a 2GD-FTV engine
Can a blocked DPF damage the engine ?
A blocked DPF on a 2GD-FTV or a 1GD-FTV will bring the car into restrictive performance mode. In longer run it can damage turbo, engine valves and related equipment. The DPF light should never be ignored. Ad blue liquid must be double checked and topped up, available at fixmycar.pk
What is DPF regeneration ?
To maintain the performance of a DPF, it has to be emptied regularly, This is done in a process called regeneration, regeneration only occurs on highway drives so vehicles that are used within cities will always choke earlier and also may not regenerate DPF as exhaust temperature of gases required to burn soot can not be achieved in local drive.
