Range Rover Evoque DPF Cleaning Guide

Welcome to the DPF Specialist Blog, today’s topic is focusing on the Range Rover Evoque, when the DPF becomes blocked, and regeneration, Symptoms, cleaning on carr and off car, and fault codes.

If you require technical support regarding Range Rover Evoque (DPF) Blocked, please call 0333 060 6801. Please note that all chemicals used are a professional grade, which is used in conjunction with a specialist machine. All replacement parts sourced from our partner Xpart.

When diagnosing faults on the Range Rover Evoque or finding a workaround to a blocked DPF the first thing you could try is regeneration although many times this will not work and a professional clean or replacement will be required.

The first starting point is to identify the symptoms to ascertain if your DPF is at fault…

Symptoms of a blocked Range Rover Evoque DPF

  • Limp mode
  • Difficult starting
  • Bad smells
  • Loss of power

The second step is to try DPF regeneration…

  • Range Rover Evoque DPF Regeneration process
  • Ensure engine is at operating temperature
  • Drive the vehicle at a minimum speed of 30 mph for at least 20 minutes
  • The warning message will go when regeneration is complete

The third step …

Have your DPF professionally cleaned…

DPF Specialist have a fleet of mobile vans nationwide that provide a cleaning service which includes computer-aided diagnostics,  cleaning of the DPF, this is without removing the DPF, our mobile equipped DPF Assist vans can do this at your place of work or home.

We also offer a competitive same day off-car cleaning service for more information on this why not give us a call 0333 060 6801 to find out more. Watch our video on how a DPF has cleaned off the car, click here.

Benefits of using our DPF cleaning patented technology:

Removal of all residuals, including PM10 particles and cerium. Efficient cleaning of all of the types of particulate filter and catalyst. Preservation of the noble metal coatings of the DPF and catalyst. Environmentally friendly process.

And finally…. If you have access to a good diagnostic scanner, we have put together a troubleshooting guide for soft codes :

Fault CodeCause of Fault code
P2002 DPF efficiency below threshold bank 1Short distance driving
P2003 DPF efficiency below threshold An air leak will result in sensor readings fluctuations that will trigger the codes
Fuel with high percentage sulphur will contribute to these fault codes
P0470 Exhaust pressure sensor malfunctionBlockage in pipe from sensor to the exhaust
P0471 Exhaust pressure sensor range/performance EGR valve /air leaks
P242f (if left untreated)Faulty exhaust pressure sensor
P2031 exhaust gas temperature sensor circuit
P2032 exhaust gas temperature sensor low
P2033 exhaust gas temperature sensor high
Loose or corroded connectors or terminals
Broken wires
Faulty sensor
P242f DPF restriction (ash accumulation)Excessive ash accumulation in DPF
Defective DPF pressure sensor
Clogged DPF pressure sensor pipes/hoses
Open or shorted circuit/s in the DPF sensor circuit
Inefficient DPF regeneration
Overuse of engine or fuel system additives

P244a DPF differential pressure too low
P244b DPF differential pressure too high
Insufficient/incorrect diesel exhaust fluid
Open or shorted circuit - DPF pressure sensor
Defective pcm programming
Defective DPF sensor
Faulty DPF
P2458 DPF regeneration duration
P2459 DPF regeneration frequency
Faulty exhaust pressure sensor
Insufficient/incorrect diesel exhaust fluid
Shorted or open wiring to the DPF injection system
Faulty DPF
Open or shorted circuit in DPF pressure sensor circuit
Faulty DPF pressure sensor

Incorrect clearance of previous error codes
P2454 DPF pressure sensor a circuit lowExcessive soot accumulation due to insufficient DPF regeneration
Insufficient/incorrect diesel exhaust fluid
Faulty exhaust pressure sensor
P2452/53 DPF pressure sensor a circuit range/performance The diesel exhaust fluid reservoir is empty (AdBlue)
Incorrect diesel exhaust fluid
Defective DPF pressure sensor
Clogged DPF pressure sensor pipes/hoses
Open or shorted circuit in the pressure sensor
Inefficient DPF regeneration
