DPFs on the shelf with Tech support to go

Shelves of Stock

If you’re an automotive specialist in Australia, post-Covid, there’s no happier sight than shelves full of shiny quality products right here in Oz. This is the sight that greets the team at DPF Australia Sales every day. Director, Charles Anderson, is probably Australia’s foremost Diesel Particulate Filter guru. That’s what happens when that’s when you talk DPFs, all day every day, and throw in a background of key roles with automotive parts, racing experience, and a keen interest in all things mechanical.

Diesel Commercials, Buses and Trucks

So if you find yourself working on a diesel engine today with a diesel particulate filter, the DPF is always immediately behind the catalytic converter.  Sometimes within the same housing, and sometimes separately (especially with older model cars ).  If that vehicle is an Asian or European diesel vehicle, light commercial, a Japanese light bus or truck like Isuzu, Hino and Coaster, Fuso and Rosa buses, it can come as a relief that someone can explain it in plain English;  is prepared to give you all the technical assistance you need and actually has the product right here in Australia.

Diagnostic Tips

Here’s another diagnostic tip, we share with our customers. A DPF is not really a complex part;  it has no moving parts, it is just a filter. The systems, that allow the computer to manage the diesel particulate filter, however, are complex.   It is easier to diagnose when we break it down to its simpler component system or individual sub-systems;  the pressure differential system, the inlet system, the temperature thermostatic control system, the EGR system and the exhaust system for leaks. Each one is relatively simple. We can explain in three minutes or less how to test the differential system, and so on. For more technical support, call us at 1300821877, or have a look at our website –

Mark ( father of V8 racer Nick Percat ) from Percat Automotive engineering in Darlington, South Australia Adelaide says,  “ I know with DPF Australia, we know we can trust the product.”  

Western Filters, from Blacktown in Sydney, are also happy to report that they use and trust our products.  Brendan from Exhaust Clean in Beenleigh, Queensland says, “Our preferred supplier is DPF Australia because they fit. “

Many of our automotive clients appreciate the wide range of quality big brands from Germany (Ernst); the Czech Republic (Bosal); the UK (Euromax) and the Chinese Ecore brand suppliers, which means often DPF Sales Australia can offer multiple brand options for the same vehicle.

Many tell us they are impressed with the friendly professional service, enjoy generous trade discounts, and that here at DPF Sales Australia, we have the latest models and releases, and that our same-day dispatch is a lifesaver. Says Charles Anderson, “ I guess that’s why we believe DPF Sales Australia is Australia’s best. “

Since 2015, Australia’s favourite DPF specialist is DPF Sales Australia. Test us out, call us on 1300 821877  or see  | AAAA Members.

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.
