Do Used DPFs work?

What about used DPFs? Do Used DPFs work? Theoretically, they should not work, however, in practice I do hear of people using them.

Ideally, they should be professionally cleaned before fitting. So why not just clean your existing old unit?

All cars and trucks log each litre of fuel injected into the cylinders for the life of the vehicle. The vehicle’s ECU then uses an algorithm to convert litres of fuel infected to grams of soot trapped in the DPF.

Then it uses the number of regenerations done to calculate soot to ash content . It then calculates the amount of ash to backpressure.

Then it compares this theoretical result to the actual reading from the pressure differential sensor. If they are too different then it will throw a fault code and turn on the check engine light DPF light. Eventually, it will shut the vehicle down to limp mode.

When you fit a new DPF you reset the calculations (data) back to zero or Day One. A second-hand DPF may be half full. However… You cannot reset the algorithm to half…. So the theoretical and actual pressure reading will be way way way out!


Charles Anderson

Thank you, DPF Australia

“NEVER DID I EVER …” is a game some might play; but for me, it became an experience when dealing with DPF Australia. Exemplary customer service cannot begin to describe my interactions with Charlie and the events of the last few weeks. I had an engine light that refused to go away and everything pointed to needing a new DPF, but Charlie knew better. He took the time to chat with me about the problem and said to look further into it. So, I did – but my mechanic couldn’t fix it; after 3 days the auto-electrician couldn’t fix it; even a factory reset couldn’t fix it. I was getting desperate and could have been an easy and profitable sale, a customer over 1000km away and ready to part with over $1500.

It would have been a tempting prospect to any company in lockdown – but not to Charlie! His exceptional integrity, expertise and willingness to help, went above and beyond anything expected. After chatting with me a second time, Charlie then volunteered to speak with the auto-electrician and ran him through some tests to help determine the problem.

And you guessed it – Charlie saved the day. And what did he ask for all this? Nothing. That’s right – nothing. This honest, ethical and trustworthy man, who doesn’t know me from any other on a street, didn’t charge me a cent. Never did I ever! Thank you, Charlie. Thank you, DPF Australia.
Respectfully, almost a customer, Geoff.”

It’s a rare animal, a Hyundai Sonata with a diesel engine, but the same solutions apply. We believed that at 120,000 km, it would be unusual to find a DPF issue, but the dealer and the auto electrician were not able to see the problem. Once we walked them through the diagnostics, we found was a split hose. We really do know DPFs and are happy to support and supply the automotive and auto electrical industries. Or not, if a new DPF is not required. Happy to be one of the good guys!

The Symptom or the Problem? DPF blockages

We often tell technicians that a DPF blockage is just a symptom, not the problem. Remember your first day back at the gym? Well, it’s a lot like that. The sore quads are a symptom. The real problem was the months we sat on the couch procrastinating!

Often replacing the DPF, even with a quality diesel particulate filter usually doesn’t cure the problem, if we don’t fix the core issue. Every day, we speak with customers working through an exhaustive checklist before any money changes hands. We’d like to think that helpful and honest will win in the end!

DPFs may get an undeservedly bad rap from drivers who unknowingly contribute to the problems by not driving enough kilometres, and too frequently in city areas, where the engine doesn’t reach optimum operating temperature. Technicians will appreciate that a clogged EGR Valve will increase diesel soot passed to the DPF; faulty fuel injectors will send too much fuel to the air/fuel mixture and incorrect engine oil when servicing may cause Turbocharger failure with oil dripping into the DPF.  High mileage vehicles will also find regeneration harder.

Some of the other suggestions will include checking for blown, loose, or split inter-cooler hoses or pipes;  a leaky or blocked pressure differential hoses or pipes or faulty pressure switch. Your owner will more than likely have a trip computer. Error codes such as the DPF light or EML (Engine Management Light) will be the first symptoms of a failing DPF, followed by loss of power, hard-starting, reduced fuel economy and most likely limp mode. However, they may get lucky with warning lights that are false alarms and this is how they can try clearing the fault;

  1. Take the car on the freeway at the speed limit and drop down a gear or two to bring the engine revs up to 2500. Hold for 20-30 minutes. This will assist the car to do a passive regeneration.
  2. Drive Faster –  Plant the foot to the floor when accelerating to increase the exhaust temperature and clear soot levels.
  3. Increase the RPM for a prolonged period until the warning lights turn off. This will increase the gases going through the DPF,  clearing it and increasing the temperature. Naturally, avoid the CBD. Avoid slow traffic especially if you are nearing the DPF limit or the fault light is on.
  4. Use high-quality fuel. Premium fuels or diesel fuel cleaners include fuel additives that help burn off harmful particles. If you are in limp mode, driving at high RPM is your best option.  Once you have normal power, go for a long fast drive on high-quality fuel.
  5. If the issue remains the next day, get your error codes read with an OBD2 diagnostic tool. Initiate a forced regeneration for maybe up to 45 minutes and hopefully burn any soot down to ash. If the warning light continues to display, then you call us.
