Vehicle: Freightliner Columbia
Engine: Detroit

Columbia received a full forced DPF burn

This Freightliner Columbia presented to us with the engine light on and requiring attention to the Diesel Particulate Filter and the vehicle was “low on power” and had derated.

Using our technical diagnostics software, we are able to connect to almost all makes and models of vehicles and engine including Caterpillar, Cummins, Detroit, Iveco, Volvo and Scania to read different ECUs and check for faults.

We conducted a forced stationary burn to this Detroit engine, which is an approximate 30 minute procedure to “burn off” the carbon build up within the DPF filter.

Following the burn being conducted, there was no engine light on the dash, the vehicle operated correctly and we had no faults on our diagnostics tester.

Tuart Hill Truck Sales can provide electronic diagnostics, including for DPF and EGR systems for most makes and models including Freightliner, Kenworth, Mack, Western Star, Iveco, Scania, Volvo, Isuzu, Hino and Mitsubishi.
