The soot build-up in your truck has just led to you emptying your wallet for some expensive engine repairs. Installing a diesel particulate filter means you prevent that type of damage from happening in the future. These filters catch bits of soot from the exhaust gases produced by your vehicle. To maintain the performance of the diesel truck or van, the filter undergoes a process called regeneration by which a high temperature burns off the collected debris to leave only a tiny amount of ash. This can happen passively as you drive on the highway when the exhaust temperature is high. There is also active regeneration, which occurs when the soot in the filter reaches a set limit and the vehicle's electric control unit initiates post-combustion fuel injection to increase the exhaust temperature. If you want to prevent those pesky warning lights that alert you to damage that may result in costly repairs, install a diesel particulate filter available from the vast inventory on eBay. Keep the sooty residue at bay and enjoy a smooth ride in your diesel van or truck.
