What can you do to prevent it?
Long motorway journeys on a regular basis will help to combust the soot inside the DPF without the need for the ECU to initiate regen mode. However this isn’t always practical for those who live in the city or countryside and therefore DPF removal is a guaranteed solution to prevent future regen and the associated oil level issues.
Can oil level rising cause problems?
Yes, engine oil diluted with diesel is a poor lubricant, premature engine wear will occur and engine life will be reduced. Furthermore, if the oil level was to rise too high oil seals can be damaged and in the worst case scenario oil could be drawn into the intake system which would lead to total engine loss if this wasn’t caught early.
Here at Avon Tuning we can offer a complete DPF Removal service on all Mazda models which will prevent future DPF issues and oil dilution.
* Our DPF Removal service is sold for off-road use only. Removal of a DPF will almost invariably make your vehicle illegal for use on a public road. This is not legal advice and if you are unsure if this applies to your vehicle, please seek further advice.
