DPF & Exhaust System
If you’re seeking a Southend-on-Sea or Shoeburyness garage that can provide affordable and top-quality maintenance and cleaning services for your vehicle’s Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF), you’ve come to the right place in Reynolds RMGMOT.
We’re a friendly local business renowned for the broad range of car servicing, repair and maintenance options that we offer, including in relation to your vehicle’s DPF and exhaust system.
DPFs have been widely fitted to diesel cars for the past two decades, and play the crucial role of capturing and storing exhaust soot to help reduce such vehicles’ emissions. However, the finite capacity of DPFs also creates a need for the soot trapped inside them to be routinely emptied or ‘burned off’. This is why regular deep DPF cleaning and maintenance is so important.

Repairs Advice & FAQ
Below, we have detailed answers to some of the most common questions we receive about car repairs undertaken at our Southend-on-Sea garage.
For further advice and guidance in relation to your own servicing and repair needs as an Essex motorist, please feel free to call our friendly and professional team on 01702 612472.
We are a small, family-owned business with a strong emphasis on serving the local community – and this very much extends to car repairs for those living in and around Southend-on-Sea, Essex.
Our high level of knowhow in car repairs covers such key components as your vehicle’s brakes, batteries, windscreen, steering and suspension. However, we are equally well-known for the trusting and lasting relationships that we build with our customers, and our commitment to much more affordable prices than are often on offer from main dealers.
If you’re considering requesting repair work to your car from us rather than a main dealer, you may be concerned about the potential consequences of this for your car’s warranty.
The good news in this regard is that the European Union (EU)’s Block Exemption Regulation has long given motorists the freedom to choose exactly where to have their vehicle serviced or repaired, without having to worry about their warranty being invalidated.
Crucial to this here at Reynolds RMGMOT in Southend is our use of only main dealer parts or parts of Original Equipment (OE) standard. This policy protects your warranty, and gives you the peace of mind of knowing that when you have your car repaired by us, the parts and service will be of at least the same quality as you would be able to expect from a main dealer.
In fact, we take pride in often going beyond even the manufacturers’ recommendations when it comes to car repairs. Choosing us also allows you to avoid long dealer waiting lists and nasty additional costs; we always present quotes upfront for repair work that we propose to carry out, and will only proceed with your approval.
We can provide the services that keep your filter delivering its best performance
Having your DPF suitably cleaned and maintained isn’t just a matter of convenience. If you fail to pay attention to this aspect of your diesel vehicle, damage can occur to your DPF and exhaust system that will necessitate much costlier repairs at a later date. So, it’s crucial that you take proactive steps to ensure regular regeneration of your car’s Diesel Particulate Filter.
You may be interested in our DPF and exhaust system maintenance services because of a light that has appeared on your dashboard, indicating that your filter is blocked. Or perhaps your car’s fuel economy seems to have deteriorated, its cooling fans have started to run more often, or your vehicle’s engine doesn’t feel as powerful as it was? These can all be indicators of a DPF that requires a deep clean.
Call Reynolds RMGMOT’s skilled and experienced technicians on 01702 612472 today, and we can provide the professional DPF maintenance and cleaning services that will help to restore your filter’s performance – and put your mind at rest. Alternatively, book your appointment with us online now.
