245800 particulate filter heavily clogged

Diesel particulate filter is attached to diesel engine for the purpose of removing shoot and diesel particulate matter from exhaust gases. Fault code 245800 Particulate filter heavily clogged store in engine control module when the diesel particulate filter is heavily block. when diesel particulate filter is heavily block it reduce the power of engine while driving at high speed. while driving at high speed there is warning indicator “Drive Train fault” on display. Also block diesel particulate filter reduce fuel efficiency of vehicle. When diesel particulate filter is block there will be some other fault code in engine control module.

Like faulty air mass sensor, low efficiency of exhaust gas recirculation cooler and also block exhaust gas recirculation valve. As when diesel particulate filter get block it stop passing burn gas due to which burn air get trap in the system. To get out of this problem you need to regenerate diesel particulate filter so that clogged diesel particulate filter get free to pass exhaust gas. After regenerating diesel particulate filter there should be no trouble code 245800 Particulate filter heavily clogged in engine control module.

Causes of 245800 Particulate filter heavily clogged :

  • Clogged diesel particulate filter.
  • Faulty charge air pressure sensor.
  • Clogged exhaust gas recirculation valve.
  • Also leak intake manifold.

Symptoms of 245800 Particulate filter heavily clogged :

  • Warning indicator of drive train fault on cluster meter and center display.
  • Pickup problem at high speed like 100-120 km/h.
  • Also fault code will store in engine control module.

How to trouble shoot :

  • When there is warning indicator ”Drive tarin fault” on cluster meter or center display stop vehicle and check if there is some fault code is showing on center display. Because some time this fault code come at high speed only. If drive train fault is coming at high speed like 100-120km/h. Than it might be possible that there is some problem at EGR, turbo or vaccum line and diesel particulate filter which are involve in vehicle power up process. To solve this kind of problem you need to scan vehicle with the help of scan tool. A highly skilled mechanic need to find the problem and solve it.
  • While scaning vehichle there will be many fault code in system you need to find fault code which is related to the problem of low power in engine. If there is fault code 245800 Particulate filter heavily clogged store in engine control module. In this situation you need clear clogged diesel particulate filter. This process can be done with the help of scan tool by performing regeneration of diesel particulate filter.
  • Performing diesel particulate filter cleaning process is not a easy process. As it require a highly skilled technician to perform this procedure. you can read al the direction of performing cleaning diesel particulate filter in scan tool. Follow that instruction to perform regeneration of diesel particulate filter process. But if after regenaration of diesel particulate filter the fault code or the problem remain same. Than you need to find the other problem which is causing low power in engine.
  • In this situation you need to check all the thing one by one to find the reason behind this problem. There might be some other problem at engine like block exhaust gas recirculation system. Clean exhaust gas recirculation system to power up the engine. Along with exhaust gas recirculation valve remove intake manifold and clean it as well.
  • Also in this situation there could be the problem of faulty charge air pressure sensor. Before cleaning diesel particulate filter replace that charge air pressure sensor if there is some fault code present in the engine control module of about faulty charge air pressure sensor. after replacing that charge air pressure sensor fault code of clogged diesel particulate filter should not be present. But if fault code of clogged diesel particulate filter is still present in the system. Than cleaning diesel particulate filter is necessary to remove fault code from engine control module or warning light on center display.

Another method :

The another mathod to clean diesel particulate filter can be performe by removing diesel particulate filter out from engine. Remove diesel particulate filter out side from engine, take it to the below water tap. Open tap and let the water get inside it than mix some acid to clean deposite particulate matter inside diesel particulate filter. Let it mixed properly wait for some time than clean it with water pressure. With this process you can clean it without scan tool which is low cost also to clean diesel particulate filter.

Solution :

  • Regenerate diesel particulate filter.
  • Replace diesel particulate filter paking.
  • Replace faulty charge air pressure sensor.
  • Also if there is some other thing is faulty than replace that.
