    Diesel Car, Ute, Van Exhaust Repair Hamilton

    About diesel exhausts:

    Diesel-powered cars, utes or vans use a different exhaust configuration to standard petrol vehicles. This is because diesel fuel is burnt differently, and needs an exhaust system that can remove soot and other matter from the exhaust emissions.

    An important part of the diesel exhaust is the diesel particulate filter. The purpose of the diesel particulate filter (or DPF) is to remove harmful soot particles from your exhaust, reducing harmful emissions and preventing blockages from occurring over time. 

    As the exhaust reaches higher temperatures, the soot particles are burnt off the particulate filter. This allows it to stay clean. This system is called passive regeneration and relies on the exhaust temperature remaining at a certain level.

    If the engine is running under a very low load, the exhaust temperature may fall to a point where the soot cannot be burnt off the particulate filter. In order to prevent the filter from being overloaded, additional fuel is injected into the engine. The fuel burns, causing the exhaust to stay at a suitable temperature. This system is called active regeneration and is controlled by a series of sensors in your exhaust system.

    Symptoms of a faulty diesel exhaust:

    Increased fuel consumption – Problems in the particulate filter or catalytic converter can cause your car to use more fuel than normal.

    Increased smoke from exhaust – Black smoke is often caused by your car burning too much fuel. Excess levels of white or blue smoke can point to serious engine problems. Learn more about smoky exhausts >

    DPF light is on – Many diesel-powered cars, utes or vans have a dashboard light which will illuminate if the diesel particulate filter becomes blocked. A blocked filter will occur if it is unable to regenerate itself. This can happen due to faulty sensors, a rich fuel mixture or constantly low exhaust temperatures.
