Clean Your Diesel Particulate Filters DIY without Heat – Plan Ahead - CobraCleanUSA
A vehicle with a dirty DPF may experience reduced performance and in many cases when the warning light says "DPF Full" it stops running.
CobraCleanUSA is a Biodegradable, Non-Toxic, Non-Acidic cleaning solution that was used to clean oxidation off of paint and aluminum. It wasn't until a Fleet manager soaked one of his DPF's in Cobra Clean that we learned of how effective it was.
Simple to use, remove your DPF, submerse it in Cobra Clean and rotate it, soak for 24 hours. Remove it drain and rinse with tap water. Many use an air hose, wet-vac or fan to dry their filters. After its dry's reinstall it, and your back on the road. To date, School Systems, Metro Coach Companies, Trucking Companies and Private Diesel owners are successfully using the CobraCleanUSA solution with success at a 75% savings ($85).
To plan a head is crucial, when a vehicles DPF warning light comes on you will need to clean the filter soon. All Diesel Motors since 2007 will require a DPF cleaning sooner or later. Trucks may go 100,000 miles, Commuter or School Buses may only go 10,000-30,000 miles. It all depends on driving conditions and the vehicle it is installed on. Stop and Go driving and ideling requires a cleaning sooner. It is recommended to order ahead and have the CobraCleanUSAready when needed so you clean it and get back on the road. If you wait until the filter clogs, it may take several days until the CobraCleanUSA can be shipped and your vehicle will be in downtime mode.
