DPF- Diesel Particular Filter


Modern diesel cars (since 2009) have to be fitted with a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) in the exhaust to stop soot passing into the atmosphere. The aim is to cut particle emissions by 80%, but the technology is not without problems. The primary issue is the DPF getting clogged with soot. This results in the car going into 'limp mode' or worse. There are options available like cleaning and replacement. 

Exhaust Gas Recirculation


In internal combustion engines, exhaust gas recirculation is a nitrogen oxide emissions reduction technique used in petrol/gasoline and diesel engines. EGR works by recirculating a portion of an engine's exhaust gas back to the engine cylinders. This is put in place to help the system be more greenhouse friendly. This can also have it's issues over time with the build up of soot resulting in engine smoking or more.
