What is a DPF ?
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.
Where is DPF filter located ?
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 the long run, it can damage the turbo, engine valves, and related equipment. The DPF light should never be ignored. Adblue 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.
What is DPF delete?
Fixmycar.pk top technicians have expertise in deleting this system from any diesel vehicle, truck, and heavy machinery. We have deleted these in the following engines.
1KD, 2KD, 1GD and 2GD UK / GUN 125
We also tune/adjust the engines for the Pakistani environment and fuel. Fuel map upgrade gives lots of power.
Toyota Hilux GUN125
What is Toyota DPF remapping?
Toyota DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) remapping refers to the process of modifying the engine control unit (ECU) software in a Toyota vehicle with a diesel engine to optimize the performance of the DPF system. The DPF is an emissions control device designed to trap and remove particulate matter (soot) from the exhaust gases of diesel engines.
Over time, the DPF can become clogged with accumulated soot, which can lead to reduced engine performance and increased fuel consumption. When the DPF becomes too clogged, it needs to go through a regeneration process to burn off the trapped soot. However, in some driving conditions, such as short trips or low-speed driving, the regeneration process may not occur effectively, leading to DPF issues.
DPF remapping involves adjusting the ECU software to modify the DPF regeneration parameters. This can include changing the timing and frequency of regeneration cycles, as well as adjusting other engine parameters to enhance the DPF system’s performance. The goal is to prevent excessive clogging of the DPF, improve fuel efficiency, and maintain optimal engine performance.
