PAS should be serviced at regular intervals.
PAS fluid will eventually deteriorate and power steering problems can arise. This can include leaks from the steering rack seals and power steering fluid reservoir. Power steering judder or steering stiffness can develop.
I offer a Power Assisted Steering treatment which can eliminate PAS stiffness, shudder and noise: prevents oil leaks and provide smoother operation of the power steering.
It also maintains optimum performance of the Power steering pump and load bearing parts by stabilising the PAS fluid.
I can also replace your Power Steering Rack.

The DPF is tested during an MOT.
It filters exhaust gases and soot.
When tested at MOT, if the gas emission levels are high, or the DPF is missing, the vehicle will fail the MOT test.
The DPF needs periodic cleaning.
Over time, particles from the exhaust gases build up in the filter. If it is not cleaned, it will block.
A blocked or damaged filter can effect fuel economy and engine performance.
The blocked filter will make your vehicle use more fuel. A warning light will illuminate to advise you of the blockage. If the light is ignored, eventually your vehicle will break down.
DPF Cleaning in Plymouth.
I use a DPF Cleaner and Regenerator that can combat this problem.
It uses a catalyst to adhere to the soot particles during combustion, lowering the temperature at which they can be burnt off. This can help to regenerate the filter.
The cleaner is recommended for use at regular service intervals, or can be used when DPF conditions suggest it may help.
A new Diesel Particulate Filter is expensive, so it can be cost effective to try cleaning it, before buying a new DPF.
I can also fit a new DPF to your vehicle.
However I cannot refurbish the existing Diesel Particulate Filter.
Phone, text or email to book a DPF service or replacement.
