About Our EGR & DPF Services for Trucks & Fleets

Light-Duty EGR and DPF Services

Light-duty diesel trucks like the Dodge Ram 3500 and Ford F350 both have a DPF and EGR system. These systems are incredibly important, for they protect our natural environment from harmful diesel emissions. Although these systems can go for long periods of time without maintenance, they should still be inspected on a regular basis. Catching a seized EGR valve or clogged DPF can save you a lot of money in the long run. At Patriot Diesel and Automotive, we offer great EGR and DPF repair and maintenance services to drivers and fleet managers throughout Cheyenne, Wyoming. Whether you need DPF regeneration services or complex EGR repairs, you can count on our staff to have your back.

Common Light-Duty EGR System Problems

One of the most common EGR system problems is definitely a seized EGR valve. Since your EGR valve is constantly coming in contact with unfiltered exhaust fumes, it can seize and malfunction due to exposure alone. The high level of carbon and soot in your exhaust is often enough to really put your EGR valve through the ringer. Symptoms of a malfunctioning EGR valve include a rough idle, stalling, poor performance, poor fuel economy, and hard starts.

Medium and Heavy-Duty EGR and DPF Services

Just like light-duty diesel trucks, medium and heavy-duty trucks also use a DPF and EGR system. Your EGR system is responsible for lessening the production of NOx, whereas your DPF is responsible for capturing soot and other harmful contaminants before they reach our natural environment. Since medium and heavy-duty diesels produce significantly more emissions than light-duty trucks, it’s quite common for SCR and DOC catalysts to join in on the after-treatment process. Rather than capturing soot like a DPF, your SCR and DOC are responsible for converting harmful pollutants like carbon monoxide and NOx into their basic compounds. This renders them harmless, and as such, eases your engine’s effect on our environment.

DPF Services at Patriot Diesel and Automotive

Your Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) is responsible for capturing soot and other contaminants produced by your diesel engine. Unlike your SCR and DOC, your DPF stores matter rather than converting them into something else. This unfortunately means your DPF needs to be cleaned out on a regular basis. Most manufacturers recommend a service interval of about 3 years, although that may change depending on usage and the age of the truck. Call Patriot Diesel and Automotive today for DPF regeneration services!
