What is FAP on Renault?
To reduce particulate emissions, the new direct injection petrol engines now include a particulate filter (FAP) in the exhaust pipe. The range of petrol engines equipped with this technology has been renamed TCe FAP. Advantages. The particulate filter does not require any maintenance.
What is the difference between FAP and DPF?
A FAP is not different from a DPF: they’re both designed to withhold the particulate, and they both have open and closed channels, but it differs in the way it facilitates combustion of the remaining dusts, reducing the number of spontaneous regenerations of the filter.
What is FAP additive?
FAP is a particulate filter designed and patented by Citroën-Peugeot group which regeneration system is characterised by the using of an additive, cerium oxide. The combustion of the PM10 naturally takes place at around 600-650°C but exhaust gas only reaches 200°C maximum.
What is DPF FAP fluid?
Particle Filter Additive Service from DPF specialist – Particle filter additives, also know as Eolys and PAT fluid is an additive for diesel particulate filter. If your car is running low of Eolys fluid, your car’s dpf will become blocked and will require cleaning or replacement.
What Renault cars use Adblue?
The other French manufacturer, Renault, offers SCR technology on its most recent models. These include the Renault Alaskan, Captur, Clio, Espace, Kadjar, Kangoo, Koleos, Master, Megane, Scenic, Talisman and Trafic.
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.
How long does DPF fluid last?
A full tank of additive should last around 70,000 miles. You’ll have to pay (around £200 for fluid and labour) to get the additive tank refilled. Don’t ignore a warning light showing that the additive tanks need refilling – without additive the DPF will quickly become blocked.
Is Eolys fluid the same as adblue?
No, Adblue® and Eolys™ 176 are completely different products and are not interchangeable with one another.
Do DPF cleaning additives work?
Yes, you can use Redex DPF Cleaner to prevent problems as well as cure them. However, it’s not a very reliable way to keep the DPF working. Redex DPF Cleaner is much easier as it lowers the temperature that the soot burns at, so it will burn off during normal driving.
What is particle filter additive level too low?
If the computer thinks the additive level is too low and the warning is ignored, it will soon stop injecting the additive into the tank. When this happens, the particulate filter won’t regenerate. If the filter stops regenerating, then it will soon become clogged up with soot.
Can a blocked DPF damage the engine?
Your DPF filter is designed to conduct exhaust fumes out of the car’s engine, so when it is blocked, these fumes cannot leave the engine as quickly. Not only will you be spending more on fuel, but the build up of fumes in your engine can cause severe damage to your engine.
How do you unblock a DPF filter?
It’s very important that you consistently hold the revs and speed for at least 30 minutes (preferably more.) If you do this correctly your filter will almost certainly unblock itself. Once you have run the car very hot for a sustained period pull over and immediately switch off the car.
