The DPF Doctor and JLM Lubricants today announced a partnership to help grow the network of garages across the UK to quickly and easily solve DPF related problems.

The goal of this joint effort is to grow the DPF Doctor network from 40 to 200 garages in the UK by the end of 2018. The DPF Doctor network is a first-of-its-kind DPF advice service and is owned and run by Mr. Darren Darling from his Ashington HQ operation in Northumberland. Members of the DPF Doctor network gain access to a proven DPF cleaning system, along with hands on training that will give the new Doctor everything needed to make a professional assessment and subsequent repair.

Gilbert Groot, Founder of JLM Lubricants says:” JLM will not only supply the DPF Cleaner products to the DPF Doctor network, but will also bring unlimited marketing- and technical support to the partnership. This is a true win-win situation for both parties not only in the UK but also in international markets.

Mr. Darren Darling adds: “We know that JLM Lubricants DPF cleaner is the best product for the job because we’ve experienced the benefit ourselves with over 600 successful DPF cleans per year in our own workshop alone.”

“The combination of the powerful JLM DPF Cleaner product, with expert knowledge and technical and marketing support are crucial for today’s garages facing an increase in DPF faults. And through this partnership, we’re able to help even more businesses to tap into the incredible capabilities that the DPF Doctor ecosystem can deliver.”

Besides providing the training to bringing new members up to speed on the technologies and procedures, the DPF Doctor network also has its own technical support line, backed up with access to a private forum, which allows members to interact ‘live’ with the whole network of Doctors across the UK and beyond.

At any time, someone within the network will have the experience or information needed, so that the job moves forward and the customer gets a cost effective solution to their DPF problem.

2014 Peugeot Boxer 2.2 HDi P15BE, P1490 & P1447 fixed near Canterbury, Kent. Diagnostics, Repair & DPF Clean

This Boxer is usually flying around Kent delivering pet supplies but it staggered into our workshop after the company’s contracted repairer were unable to fix it.

We carried out a full diagnostic assessment of the engine management and DPF systems which revealed an electrical fault that had prevented regeneration taking place. Due to the time the vehicle was driven with the fault the DPF was badly blocked.

The fault was repaired and a 3 stage clean was carried out on the DPF. Within 4 hours we were road testing the vehicle with full power restored and a successful regeneration was observed.

Ford Transit in this week with DPF issues

This van had already had the DPF removed and cleaned but was still having problems. We carried out our in depth diagnostics using the Ford dealer tool and established that there was a problem with the vaporiser in the exhaust not operating correctly. After removal we found it was blocked solid with carbon deposits. With a new vaporiser installed we carried out our on car three stage cleaning process and after an extended road test confirmed that the back pressure was normal and the van regenerated corrcetly. Another vehicle fixed without having to replace the DPF saving the customer great expense.

2008 Citroen C4 DPF Fault Fixed!

This 2008 Citroen C4 Picasso came in to the workshop recently with the dreaded “Anti-Pollution system fault” flashing up on the dash.

This warning can be a bit of a red herring as it can actually be triggered by various types of fault, and not necessarily related to the emissions control system.

However, on this occasion our initial assessment found the issue was infact connected to the DPF in that the module controlling the separate additive tank was faulty, with this unit replaced the system was back online and the car able to actively regenerate the DPF.

Another problem solved, another driver quickly back on the road with minimal expense.

2008 Skoda Superb 2.0 tdi – P2002 & P2452 FIXED in Kent…

We went out this week to a customer that was referred to us from their local garage who got as far as the fault codes and attempted a forged regeneration but failed. There are a number of reasons for this and as an experienced DPF doctor we can diagnose these and fixed the root cause along side out 3 stage DPF clean to restore the filter to a correct & safe condition . All this was carried out without disruption at their home address!
