If you’re ever unsure of what the symbols on your dashboard indicate or have simply noticed your vehicle is underperforming, you can bring it to the Central Motors garage for vehicle diagnostics.

As well as our work with diesel particulate filters, exhausts and gearboxes for motorists based in Bridport and Lyme Regis, we also use fuel injector cleaning solutions to restore your vehicle’s fuel system by removing any residue so it can achieve full functionality.
The upkeep of your fuel injector system is crucial to the combustion process that sustains engine efficiency.
When motorists contact us with DPF-related issues, we recommend bringing in the vehicle as soon as possible. Once we have confirmed the source of your problems is the DPF we will remove the current filter.
We will test the DPF, including the pressure sensor and soot mass, to establish what works are required. Should we discover the DPF is hardened with soot or cracked we will need to replace it.
If the filter is simply blocked our mechanics carry out DPF regeneration, which involves cleaning it with compressed air, then rinsing it off before applying a DPF chemical cleaner to ensure all ash and soot is cleared.
Blocked filters can lead to mechanical malfunctions that eventually cause significant damage to the engine as it works harder to ventilate exhaust fumes, resulting in increased fuel consumption and more extensive, costly repairs or replacements being required later down the line.
