SOURCE: Mazda 6 oil change
If DPF means Diesel Particulate Filter, no you don't need to change this cartridge. Somewhere near 120000Km you have to refill the additive tank with Eolys additive.

SOURCE: DPF LIGHT
I have had the same problem with my Mazda 6, I had done 22500 miles when a light popped up. SO i persisted to go to mazda who much like yourslef told me my driving style is wrong. Which i thought was ludacris. After an expensive diagnostics they said it was due to my egr vavle causing my Diesel Particulate Filter to Block. That was it then they put a £4000 bill if i wanted the parts done in front of me. I laughed out of shear disbelief. I then persisted to look around and noticed on Fixya some one saying about the same problem. They said they had found a company happy to help. SO i persisted to call them, I even asked for the name that was put on the system Darrell i believe, i have to say for someone that doesnt work for mazda i think he should so informative, Unfortuantly the other person said the new part was £500 but darrell told me that the price was £603 allm in with a surcharge, (certainly alot better than mazda anyway). I toyed with the idea for a little while and bit the bullet and ordered it with then. 4 days later a new DPF arrived, 2 days later i took to mazda who said much like Darrell that i must replace the EGR valve and do a full engine oil Flush. I told them to go ahead i paid about 300 for the egr valve and all in all cost me just over a grand. My point is Darrell told me of a good maintenance procedure for these vehicles. Instead of buying a new car as this one aperently "isnt right for me" he told me to once a week blast it through the whole reg range. Since then 5 months on no problems what so ever thought i would share this info with you guys as it seems quite a common fault. Darrell number and company name are Onlineautomotive.co.uk 0844 880 4149. Hope this helps some people

honestly do not know as i have never seen a warm up valve ,i can only sumise that it provides hot air to the inlet manifold for use in extreme cold so yes it must be possible just to leave it off
