Our customers have come to expect a certain level of professionalism and expertise which we seek to deliver in everything we do. The N7 Auto Repairs team is proud to announce the most recent addition to our growing list of services.

In order to continue serving our local Dublin clientele better, we’ve decided to offer a DFP cleaning service from here on out.

Our DPF Cleaning Process?

The knowledgable team at N7 Auto Repairs has access to some of the best equipment available in order to offer top-of-the-line services to our customers.

  • We currently using a DPF cleaning machine that takes your vehicle’s filter from used to brand-new by soaking it in a DPF cleaner for around 30 minutes.
  • Next, the filter is run through the machine where high water pressure removes all of the ash and soot.

The entire process only takes around one hour. Depending on our workload for the day and the time that you drop off the filter, it should be returned to you within the same day. This process can get a filter so clean that you might not believe were handing you back your old filter.

What is a Diesel Particulate Filter?

If you own a diesel car that was manufactured after 2006, there’s a good chance it uses Diesel Particular Filtration. DPF filters are placed within a vehicle’s exhaust system to limit the amount of soot and ash that gets released when you’re driving. This helps to combat the amount of junk in the atmosphere and is one of the main ways that Ireland has been fighting to keep the country’s air cleaner and breathable.

If you’ve been using your vehicle for short distances at low speeds, it’s more likely that soot is building up in your DPF and preventing the filter from working properly. Fortunately, a longer trip with greater speeds is typically enough to clear up that blockage. However, that pesky buildup can return without the proper maintenance.

Your car’s internal computer system can detect this issue and display a warning light indicating that the vehicle is in need of repair. Don’t waste your money and time at a chain autobody shop. These places usually just outfit your exhaust with a completely new DPF trap that can cost you upwards of a thousand euros or more.

When you work with A7 Auto Repairs, we’re not going to replace your DPF filter unless it’s completely necessary. Instead, we’ll put the filter through a DPF cleaner and return it to you in pristine condition. Your vehicle’s exhaust system will finally be able to breathe efficiently again. This can improve your fuel economy, eliminate any related DPF problems, and even give your car more throttle.
