Removal of particle filters
Information on the removal of the particle filter
Since 2006, almost all turbo engines have been equipped with an FAP that retains soot particles so that they are not released into the air. These particles are burned about every 1000 kilometres.
This process, which takes about 5 to 10 minutes, leads to overconsumption because it uses fuel to burn the particles. That is why we propose that you remove it.
What is the operation?
It should be noted that PAFs have a life span of about 100,000 kilometres. From that moment on, the filter is so clogged that it is no longer able to regenerate. This clogging of the filter is mainly due to small movements that do not allow it to complete the regeneration process. Because the filter does not heat sufficiently over short distances, regeneration does not take place and soot particles are not burned.
A clogged MAF can cause back pressure in the engine and therefore damage it or clog your exhaust.
The deletion is done first mechanically and then electronically:
- We empty the filter,
- We are modifying the mapping to disable the regeneration cycle of the particulate filter.
- In addition to suppressing regeneration, we deprogram the various functions of the particulate filter so that there are no error codes.
The advantages of removing FAP:
- Extended motor life
- Better performance
- Reduction of consumption
- Avoid the costs of change or repair (more than 2000 €)
