The diesel particulate filter has a service life of around 70k-120k miles, dependant on how well the filter has been maintained. Using good grade oils with regular oil changes, good quality diesel i.e. V-Power and long frequent motorway journeys will ensure a longer life span of the DPF.
From time to time the DPF requires cleaning and there is an automated cleaning process known as DPF Regeneration and 9/10 times this will work for most people if the DPF is looked after. However, there will come a time in every DPF's life that the regeneration will fail.
A DPF that fails regeneration can be cleaned manually but this process can be expensive and offers no guarantees.
