    Default Dpf and egr

    Hi guys. Just a quick question. Sorry to sound daft lol but what is a dpf? Iv saw it mentioned quite a bit on the site. My car is an sri 1.9cdti 120 8v so take it i have one?

    Also is it recommended to clean the egr valve and boost sensor regulary? Or just leave it til it goes and replace it?

    Thanks.

    The DPF is a Diesel Particulate Filter, it forms part of the exhaust on Signums and Vectra estates or Vectras with auto trans, most hatchaback and saloons dont have these. It traps soot particles to meet emission regulations.
    Yes it's worth doing the EGR and boost sensor,both easy jobs, but i wouldn't say its needed regularly.
