It’s a failure to correctly regenerate that is the cause of most diesel particulate filter issues: they become blocked, which increases exhaust emissions, stifles engine performance and sometimes even puts the car into a restricted ‘limp-home mode’.

What can a bad engine air filter do?

Poor Engine Performance The dirty air filter restricts the air supply to the engine causing unburned fuel to form a soot residue that accumulates on the spark plug. This fouls the spark plug(s) and decreases their ability to deliver the spark needed for the combustion process.

Why is my exhaust filter 100% full service?

No longer Eco Owner. One week later our truck is still in for repair so had to rent a car. Dealer said we have a clogged fuel filter restricting fuel flow that might be why we got the ETC warning and the 2nd warning of exhaust filter 100% full. So we are told none of this is covered under our engine warranty.

Why does my diesel engine have a clean exhaust filter?

Last summer I was getting a loud air pressure sound and black smoke along with the same “clean exhaust filter” and reduced power warnings. I had a ripped boot on the boost tube which was making the turbo not work and just the engine was trucking along blowing nice dirty black smoke under load. Just an FYI in case the sensor doesn’t fix it.

Why is it important to know about exhaust problems?

Not only does the exhaust system direct harmful gases away, it also helps the engine to cool down, as well as clean the air before it exits the vehicle’s tailpipe. This is very reason why identifying exhaust problems early on is very important, as it promotes safety and it keeps you from making expensive diagnosis and repairs.

Is the diesel exhaust filter covered under warranty?
