Often your diesel engine cannot regenerate itself. This can cause critical consequences, which are very expensive.
The reason why a filter cannot regenerate itself is almost always the same: on short trips the required temperature for burning is not reached. The soot/ash mass in the diesel particulate filter increases and the fine honeycomb structure of the diesel particulate filter is bonded and clogged with ashes.
Above a certain amount of ashes the filter cannot regenerate itself.
The backpressure of the exhaust system increases and disrupts the car; the car accelerates very badly and has increased fuel consumption. The ash in the filter keeps almost all the exhaust gases back.
The engine electronics (ECU) detects this condition to intervene protectively. The emergency program is executed and warning lights on the dashboard appear. At this point you have to go to a specialist to change the filter. The dealer will be happy to install a new diesel particulate filter in your car. This involves considerable costs – usually a filter replacement costs about 1.000 to 3.000 euros.
For that you should intervene early and regenerate your DPF by yourself.
