A DPF, or diesel particulate filter, is a device that is fitted to the exhaust system of a diesel engine in order to reduce the emission of particulates (soot and ash) from the engine. The DPF works by trapping the particulates in a honeycomb-like structure and then burning them off at high temperatures when the engine is operated at high speeds.
However, the DPF can become clogged with particulates over time, which can reduce its effectiveness and cause the engine to run less efficiently. If the DPF becomes severely clogged, it can cause the engine to shut down completely. Therefore, it is important to regularly clean the DPF in order to maintain its effectiveness.
If you own a van in the United Kingdom, there’s a good chance that you need to get it MOT’d every year. But what if your van fails its MOT? Maybe it’s because of something as simple as a broken headlight, or maybe it’s because your van doesn’t meet the new, stricter emissions standards. Either way, you’re now facing a dilemma: do you pay to get your van repaired, or do you sell it to a company like WeBuyBrokenVans?
The answer, of course, depends on your individual circumstances. If you need your van for work and you can’t afford to be without it for long, then selling it might not be the best option. But if your van is old and/or in poor condition, then you might save yourself a lot of money in the long run by selling it now.
1. The cost of repairs can be high, especially if you need to replace major components like the engine or transmission.
2. If your van fails its MOT again next year, you’ll have to pay for another MOT test.
3. The value of your van will decrease as it gets older and less reliable.
4. You’ll avoid the hassle and stress of dealing with repairs.
5. You can use the money you get from selling your van to buy a new, more reliable one.
