Unlocking Profit Solving DPF problems: A report from the DPF Doctor Network founder Darren Darling.
With the pandemic ‘delivering’ even more faulty and neglected vehicles to workshop doors, mechanics are in big demand. And when it comes to DPFs and the many problems they present from partially blocked to full on limp mode it’s important that mechanics ensure their DPF diagnostic and fault fixing capability is top of the class. If they don’t, they’re effectively handing work to neighbouring workshops that know how to handle a blocked or, faulty DPF.
“As we have worked through this pandemic, we have seen more DPF problems than ever,” says Darren. “With travel restrictions in place this has led to a huge upturn in blocked DPFs. Stop start short journeys are largely to blame as well as the general delays in servicing. The members of our DPF Doctor Network globally from Southern Ireland to Australia, The UK and the Netherlands have been working 12-hour days and more to deliver a premium DPF service to customers keen to get their faulty DPF beleaguered vehicles back on the road.
Use JLM Lubricants’ DPF Regen Plus and JLM Catalytic Exhaust Cleaner Diesel to keep DPFs clean while only doing short journeys
“Traditionally we’ve only seen vehicles that other workshops have struggled to fix but we’re now seeing a high volume of blocked DPFs because of the short journeys motorists have beenrestricted to under the lockdown measures in most countries. This has opened a new avenue of preventative measures to keep the DPF clean given there’s little point in cleaning it without taking appropriate measures to stop it blocking up again. It’s importantthat we give our customers sound advice on how to avoid the problem reoccurring and that we recommend the right products.
“We have seen fantastic results using JLM Lubricants’ DPF Regen Plus and JLM Emission Reduction Treatment Diesel to keep DPFs clean while only doing short journeys,” says Darren. “In fact, my own vehicles have not had a long journey in over 5 months but the DPFs are nice and clean thanks to JLM. There has never been a better time to promote JLM additives as a preventative measure and of course the DPF cleaning range as a real problem solver.
These are products that are effective, safe and that do exactly what they say on the tin. I can’t recommend the JLM Professional DPF Toolkit enough. It enables a mechanic to clean a fully blocked DPF in around one hour with the need to remove it – whether they are workshop based or operating from a mobile unit. This is incredible and why every DPF Doctor uses it as part of a complete DPF cleaning service.”
