What is a FAP engine?
FAP – If you drive one of Peugeot’s diesel hybrid engines then it is likely to include a Diesel Particulate filter (DPF/FAP) which reduces the soot coming out of the exhaust by 99.9%. An engine with a FAP designation means it is even kinder to the environment through low exhaust emissions.
What does regenerate FAP mean?
What is regeneration? It is the elimination of soot by high temperatures in the FAP. To make this regeneration process easier, the engine should be used regularly at a sufficient level to ensure high enough temperature of the exhaust gas.
What FAP delete?
A DPF delete removes a vehicle’s DPF and configures the computer system to function without it. The exhaust is used to physically replace the DPF, while the tuner disables the vehicle’s regeneration mode and ensures that no other engine codes come up.
What is the best diesel particulate filter cleaner?
The Best DPF Cleaner & Regenerator: Additive, Spray, Off Car
- JLM Diesel DPF Cleaner.
- Wynn’s Diesel Particulate Filter Cleaner.
- Redex Diesel Particulate Filter Cleaner.
Is it illegal to delete DPF?
Though it is illegal to remove any emission device if the system leaves the car incapacitated then removal is the only option. Thus, it is not illegal to remove the DPF if the system is causing the vehicle to leave you stranded and unsafe as is the case when the DPF fails.
Is it illegal to remove DPF?
While it’s not illegal to remove a car’s DPF, it is illegal to drive without it if one should be fitted. The process for removing a DPF is a relatively simple one that requires cutting a hole in a vehicle’s exhaust, removing the filter and welding the resultant hole shut.
Is removing EGR valve illegal?
Although it is not illegal to remove the EGR from your vehicle, it is an offence under the Road vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations (Regulation 61a(3))1 to use a vehicle which has been modified in such a way that it no longer complies with the air pollutant emissions standards it was designed to meet.
Can I clean a DPF myself?
Don’t DPFs clean themselves? In theory, yes. “Passive Regeneration” or if appropriate Active DPF regeneration will take place as part of a healthy diesel engine running cycle, but active regeneration can fail once a blockage reaches a certain level. Sometimes a “forced” regeneration may be carried out by a mechanic.
Are DPFs really a problem?
If your diesel particulate filter (DPF) has never become clogged, it’s one of the parts of your car you might not even know exists. Whatever the car, the process works in much the same way: exhaust gases pass through the filter, leaving large soot particles behind. And it’s these particles that can cause problems.
How do you clear a diesel particulate filter?
If you get a warning light showing that the filter’s blocked, it should be possible to complete an active regeneration cycle and clear the warning light by driving for 10 minutes or so at speeds over 40mph.
