Mazda 6 and Mazda 5 DPF Diesel Particle Removal Delete Service or Diesel Particle Filter Problems ?
What is a DPF or FAP Diesel Particle Filter.
A diesel particulate filter, also know as a DPF or FAP, is a device designed to remove diesel particulate matter or soot from the exhaust gas of a diesel engine. The cars exhaust DPF will gather the soot. A diesel-powered vehicle equipped with functioning filter will emit no visible smoke from its exhaust pipe.
In addition to collecting the particulate, a method must exist to clean the filter.
Some filters are single-use (disposable), while others are designed to burn off the accumulated particulate, either through the use of a catalyst (passive), or through an active technology, such as a fuel burner which heats the filter to soot combustion temperatures, through engine modifications (the engine is set to run a certain specific way when the filter load reaches a pre-determined level, either to heat the exhaust gases, or to produce high amounts of NO2, which will oxidize the particulates at relatively low temperatures), or through other methods. This is known as “filter regeneration”. Sulfur in the fuel interferes with many “regeneration” strategies, so almost all jurisdictions that are interested in the reduction of particulate emissions, are also passing regulations governing fuel sulfur levels.
Diesel particulate matter burns when temperatures reach above 600 degrees Celsius. This temperature can be reduced to somewhere in the range of 350 to 450 degrees Celsius by use of a fuel borne catalyst. The actual temperature of soot burn-out will depend on the chemistry employed.

Common vehicles suffering the DPF system failure problems
The DPF system is fitted to a wide range of diesel cars , below are some common cars suffering from the DPF problems:
Mazda 6 dpf removal all problems can be repaired.
- Mazda Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) problems removal or delete
- Mazda Diesel 6 Particulate Filter (DPF) problems removal or delete service
- Mazda Diesel 5 Particulate Filter (DPF) problems removal or delete
The DPF will need to be removed from the exhaust system.
The ECU can be removed and sent to our workshop, we can remove the DPF by reprogramming the internal software. If you wish we can a remap for the same price. Let us know when sending in.
