A DPF, or Diesel Particulate Filter, is a critical component of your diesel car’s exhaust and transmission system. Simply put, it acts as a filter that captures soot and other PM10 pollutants which are present in your car’s emissions. Under ideal circumstances, a DPF should last for approximately 100,000 miles without any intervention.
But in practice, most DPFs last a lot less. Without a properly-functioning DPF, your vehicle will go into ‘limp’ mode; you will be unable to accelerate and may even end up damaging other critical components under the bonnet.

In any diesel car, a DPF sits just adjacent to the catalytic converter. Both are parts of the exhaust system and are exposed continually to high temperatures. This brutal heat is the first thing that affects a properly-functioning DPF since they are not made of metal.
When you drive infrequently or for short distances, your car’s engine does not require as much revving as it would otherwise. This results in soot build-up, and the in-built filter cleaning system, called a ‘regeneration cycle’, does not kick in.
