Southern Commercial Diesel is equipped to handle any EGR system and DPF repair and maintenance needs for your diesel vehicle.
The EGR system is a pollution control device that reduces the amount of nitrogen oxides (NOx) emitted by a diesel engine. The system recirculates a portion of the engine's exhaust gas back into the intake, which lowers the combustion temperature and reduces the formation of NOx. The EGR system is an important component in the diesel engine's emissions control system, and it must function properly for the engine to pass emissions tests and meet emissions standards.
There are a few signs that a vehicle's EGR system may not be functioning properly. One indication is a decrease in engine power or performance. The EGR system can become clogged or malfunction, causing a restriction in the exhaust system which can negatively impact engine performance. Another indication of a problem with the EGR system is an illuminated check engine light. This can indicate a malfunction with the system, and it will require diagnostic testing to determine the exact issue.
Southern Commercial Diesel offers a wide range of EGR system repair and maintenance services. Our mechanics are well-trained and well-equipped to diagnose and repair any issues with the EGR system, including clogged EGR valves and passages, faulty EGR sensors, and stuck EGR coolers. They can also perform regular maintenance on the EGR system, such as cleaning the EGR valve and passages, to keep the system in optimal condition.
Another critical component of a diesel engine's emissions control system is the diesel particulate filter (DPF). The DPF is a filter that captures soot and other particulate matter from the exhaust gas before it is released into the atmosphere. Over time, the DPF can become clogged with soot, which can lead to decreased engine performance and even damage to the engine if not addressed.
There are several signs that a vehicle's DPF may not be functioning properly. One indication is a decrease in engine power or performance, similar to EGR system issues. Another indication is an illuminated check engine light and increased exhaust emissions. Excessive soot buildup can also cause the DPF to overheat and potentially damage the filter itself. One of the biggest is the DPF constantly entering its regeneration mode, wherein it burns off the accumulated soot. Keep in mind that the burned-off soot is still present within the system, it’s just not directly present on the filter itself; as such, repeated regenerations can result in a build-up of this waste byproduct that can block the DPF and cause more regenerations than normal. While a regular process, if this regeneration function happens constantly, this is definitely a sign that your DPF needs some maintenance.
Southern Commercial Diesel also offers a wide range of DPF repair and maintenance services. The mechanics are trained to diagnose and repair any issues with the DPF, including clogged filters and malfunctioning sensors. They can also perform regular cleaning and replacement of the DPF to ensure that the system is functioning properly, including removing the accumulated soot build-up mentioned previously.
The EGR system and DPF are both essential components of a diesel engine's emissions control system. These systems must function properly for the engine to meet emissions standards and pass emissions tests. Southern Commercial Diesel is fully equipped to handle any EGR system and DPF repair and maintenance needs for diesel vehicles. Regular maintenance of these systems can help prevent costly repairs and keep the engine running efficiently. Trust the team at Southern Commercial Diesel to keep your diesel vehicle running at its best.
