What is DPF?
DPF (diesel particulate filter) treats your truck's exhaust by trapping particulate matter which is basically soot and ash. Diesel particulate filters have been a crucial part of a truck's emissions system. DPF's capture approximately 90% of diesel particles and soot preventing them from being released through the exhaust system.
Benefits of a clean DPF include:
The DPF must be cleaned every 150,000 to 300,000 miles to remove the built up ash. The filter should also be cleaned if a fuel injector or turbo problem causes contamination with engine oil or non-combusted diesel. This contamination cause unwanted back pressure. Cleaning methods include air blasting, de-ionized water and a vacuum-like system. This must be done very carefully to avoid any damage to the filter. The particulate matter that is removed must be handled with extreme caution to ensure there is no exposure to the very fine contaminants.
DPF and Preventative Maintenance
The DPF is yet another component that must be tracked and maintained on a heavy duty truck. Ensuring regular preventative maintenance is performed on the DPF will do wonders in ensuring the long life of the DPF. Replacing air filters and fuel filters regularly along with using the correct type of oil for the engine will help prevent any unnecessary wear and potential damage with the DPF.

They are wonderful. We were visiting from out of state and our engine light came on. They were the only ones that said they would take the time to look at it that same day even though they were very busy. They came right out when we got there and let us know it was not an urgent problem (a glow plug was bad) and we should be fine waiting until we got home
The team really works well together. Great communication throughout my engine repair process
Excellent service, in and out quickly!
Being a Memphis native, we have been to about every diesel shop in the area over the years. Angel's used to own this building, but we heard there were new owners and we wanted to check on it. Turns out, its better than ever
