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
