Question about Suzuki Grand Vitara
A diesel particulate filter (DPF) collects particulates in the engine's exhaust, basically unburned fuel. Every so often the DPF will need to regenerate. What this means is when a certain amount of particulates accumulate in the DPF, a small amount of raw fuel is injected into the DPF to increase the temperature. The increased heat burns the particulates resulting in fewer nasty things going into the atmosphere. However, the regeneration process leaves a small amount of ash in the DPF which accumulates over time. You may have to have the DPF professionally cleaned (it's not a DIY thing) in order to restore its performance.
