An Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) is a valve that also reduces emissions. It operates by cycling part of the exhaust gas back to the engine’s cylinders. DPF failure is prevented because this process sends gasses away from the engine, allowing it to run better. The purpose of an EGR is to reduce the amount of nitrous oxide running through the exhaust system.
A Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) is a part of the exhaust system of your truck that gathers soot in order to keep the air clean. In a mesh net it retrieves particles and decreases harmful emissions.
The EGR and DPF systems of your truck are vital components for proper engine emission control. Routine maintenance is important to confirm correct engine function and proper emission compliance. Although they do reduce emissions, a strain can be placed on your engine by these systems. The lack of regular maintenance can result in the total destruction of your truck.
How to tell if your EGR and/or DPF systems are blocked
Both the EGR and DPF can become clogged. The emissions control systems are created for diesel trucks that are often used for towing heavy weights over long distances, so depending on how you are using your diesel truck, you could run into emission control system issues.
An orange light will appear on your dashboard if your DPF is blocked. We don’t suggest that you wait for this to occur. It is better to service your vehicle before it is completely clogged.
