Redex DPF Professional Diesel Particulate Filter Cleaner
What is Redex DPF Cleaner RADD0013A 250ml?
If you have a modern diesel car, it will most likely have a Diesel Particular Filter. This is a filter which became compulsory a few years ago to help improve emissions. It removes soot from the car’s exhaust by trapping it in the filter.
Unfortunately this means that soot can easily build up in the filter, and eventually it becomes blocked. The soot burns away at high temperatures – such as when you’re driving on a motorway for a long time – but if you drive in a city or do a lot of stop/start driving you won’t burn the soot away, meaning you’ll experience blockages quite regularly.
Redex DPF Cleaner lowers the temperature the soot burns at, meaning it burns away during normal driving without you having to get your engine very hot.
- Cleans and reactivates DPFs
- Clears soot blockages fast
- No costly repairs
- Use every 2-3 tanks or when DPF light comes on
Frequently Asked Questions:
Why is my car’s DPF warning light on?
DPFs get blocked with soot, and the warning light is your first indication that this has happened.
How do I clear a blocked DPF?
Your DPF will become blocked when soot builds up in it. To clear it, the soot needs to burn away.
Can I just take my car to a mechanic to clear my DPF?
