Honda Accord 2.2i-DTEC Complete DPF Removal Service

Honda Accord 2.2iDTEC Blocked DPF FaultsHonda Accord 2.2i-DTEC Custom DPF Removal Session
The Honda Accord 2.2i-DTEC although this is a great example of a vehicle, like all other diesels this car is also fitted with a Diesel Particulate Filter also known as the DPF.

The DPF or Diesel Particulate Filter is used to collect carbon particles which are created from the burning of the diesel in the engine. This is then trapped in the filter until the DPF is ready for a regeneration. The regeneration basically is a process the filter goes through to clean this filter out of all the carbon matter. Once the filter is over 40% blocked and the car is at its full temperature, the filter burns away this carbon matter to lower the emissions on diesel vehicles. This is the full function of the DPF on all diesel cars and vans.

On the Honda Accord the DPF is situated right at the front of the engine right after the turbo. This is because that is were the tempereture is at its optimum heat which is great for when the DPF is in regeneration mode. However on this vehicle as others the DPF does still tend to get blocked and causes lots of problems.

Honda Accord 2.2i-DTEC DPF RemovalsCommon symptoms of a failed DPF on Honda Accord 2.2i-DTEC are:

  • Loss of Power / no throttle response
  • Poor fuel consumption
  • Hard to start and slow pick up in speed
  • Limp mode (won’t rev over 3000rpm)
  • Filter Light or Engine management light illuminated
  • Engine starts then eventually cuts out
  • Engine fails to start

The removal of the actual filter although is simple and easily accessible, the programming is what makes this car a hard one to work on, but here at DPF solutions we have been able to come up with a breakthrough which allows us to program the ECU to make sure once the removal is completed the owner will not get no DPF related lights, no limp mode and no more regenerations, so no problems.

What i can expect after my Honda DPF is removed?:

  • Increase in powerHonda Accord 2.2i-DTEC Particle Filter Problems
  • Increase in performance
  • Better fuel economy
  • Smoothed out flat spots in rev range
  • No more limp mode
  • No more DPF related fault codes
  • No more warning lights
  • No more regeneration mode

Whilst we were working on the programming of the ECU one of the main faults we came across on the Honda Accord 2.2 is that once the DPF removal programming was completed, on the test run we found that the cruise control function on this car stopped working. We are glad to say we have over come this problem with our own in house solution and currently are the only company in the UK to do a full removal service without any problems.

    Hi, I drive a Honda Accord 2.2 iDTECand I have this problem with the DPF filter coming on regularly, 3 times in 2 months, unfortunately I live in Malta and cannot bring the car to you in the UK, furthermore in Malta driving is very slow and congested therefore I cannot take the car and drive it at 40 MPH for 20 minutes as I read . I took the car to the local Honda dealer but they don`t seem to have any idea as all they are doing is hooking it up to a Laptop and make a regeneration programme, which basically clears the problem for about 3 weeks until I have to go again. My question is whether you have any affiliated garage here in Malta who uses your technology and if you don`t have I suggest that you look for someone as this problem is becoming common here especially since many dealers here are importing second hand cars from the UK. Can you please offer some help and advice.

    Hi Chris

    Thank you for your enquiry,

    We currently do not have any agents in Malta but are looking for companies and individuals willing to come forward and take on our Approved Dealership Program because we get many enquiries in Malta. We do offer a postal service whereby you can remove and send your Engine ECU to us for programming. We can then de-activate the DPF and regeneration cycle from the ECU and return it to you. For pricing, please email our support team.

    Kindest Regards

    Gary K.
