Quality Maintenance For Diesel Engines

Quality Maintenance For Diesel Engines

DPF Cleaning

A DPF (diesel particulate filter) is designed to remove diesel particulate matter or soot from the exhaust gas of a diesel engine and prevent particles from being released into the atmosphere. Viking Mechanical and Dieseltec QLD are one of the very few companies in Queensland that operates a DPF and catalyst cleaning machine. The cleaning process uses the patented European technology and machinery that guarantees the complete removal of PM (particulate matter), cerium and oil deposits without damaging the filter.

We’re here to protect the environment from the harmful contaminants created by the diesel exhaust system. This filtering and cleaning process is part of every responsible diesel motorists job as an owner. We’ll take your diesel exhaust gas from contaminated and hazardous to cleaner and greener as we apply our effective DPF or catalyst cleaning process. Every diesel engine throughout this area needs our exclusive DPF cleaning equipment to ensure its safe operation and protection of the environment.

Clean Your Diesel Particulate Filters & Catalyst

As with any filter, its job is to “filter” or trap pollutants, and your DPF needs to be cleaned regularly to ensure your vehicle performs at its best. The DPF clean will do wonders for your diesel’s efficiency and its overall performance.

Our exclusive filtering equipment protects the environment from harmful toxins or any particles from being released into the atmosphere. Avoid costly repairs by staying on top of the DPF’s condition.

Your DPF should be cleaned every 100 to 200 000 kilometres (or less for more severe service applications). The following are a few of the benefits to your next DPF Cleaning:

  • Avoid replacement costs and extend filter life – Regular cleaning helps extend the life of your filter as soot and ash collected in the DPF can damage or destroy it.
  • Improve fuel economy – A clean DPF helps your engine perform at peak power and efficiency.
  • Reduces downtime – Over time, ash builds up in the filter causing air flow restriction. This reduces engine efficiency requiring more fuel, more turbo boost and more power, leading to additional maintenance costs over time.

Book Your DPF Cleaning Today!

Removal of the DPF or using a delete pipe carries great risks. These include EPA fines, voiding of insurance policies in the event of an accident, as well as engine shutdown due to the ECU malfunction. The ECU will assume the DPF requires regeneration causing large clouds of unburnt or partially burnt diesel. It is against the law to remove or modify the DPF on any vehicle in Australia. Come to Viking Mechanical in Mackay, Queensland for expert diesel particulate cleaning services you can trust!

Quality Diesel Engine Diagnostics

Quality Diesel Engine Diagnostics

Diesel Specialists

Viking Mechanical and Dieseltec QLD are very proud to be the Authorised Bosch Diesel Centre in Mackay and surrounding region. What does Authorised mean? It means we have the tools, test equipment, parts, specifications and training directly from the manufacturer. It also means the product that you receive from us was assembled to the exact specifications and verified on equipment designed and built by the manufacturer. Non-authorised and 3rd party shops that are selling rebuilt common rail injectors are simply guessing. Don’t spend your hard-earned money on someone else’s guess!

All our injectors are assembled in our Bosch certified clean room. This clean room allows us to maintain a controlled environment ensuring the accuracy of our test equipment, resulting in the confidence of precise workmanship. After assembly, every injector is tested and verified on our Bosch test bench. The test specifications on the test bench were derived directly from the equipment that is used on the assembly line at the Bosch factory. This not only guarantees that the injector operates correctly, but that it will operate within the very tight emission levels as they were designed. We are also the only authorised Zexel, Denso, Delphi and Stanadyne diesel fuel injection repairer and service centre in Mackay. We understand that machinery needs to be functioning promptly, so service times are kept to a minimum. Contact us for more information.

Bosch Car Services

Bosch Car Services

These FAQ’s are provided as an information aid to our customers and to assist in dispelling the myths surrounding new car servicing and manufacturers warranties. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) also provide guidance on their website.

Question: A Dealer told me I’ll void my warranty if you service my car, is that right?

Fact: There is NO requirement to service your car at a manufacturer’s dealership to preserve:

  • any manufacturer’s warranty (that may apply to your vehicle);
  • any state or territory based statutory warranty (that may apply to your vehicle); or
  • your rights to Consumer Guarantees (formerly known as implied statutory warranties).

Question: What steps will you take to protect my warranty?

Fact: We are qualified to carry out log book servicing and we ensure that work is done according to the manufacturer’s specifications, using appropriate quality parts and lubricants where required.

Question: How long should my Consumer Guarantees apply?

Fact: It’s a common misconception that your Consumer Guarantees have a specific time limit. Whilst a manufacturer may choose to put a time limit on their warranty, this cannot replace your Consumer Guarantees. Protection provided under Australian Consumer Law will take into account the purchase price, realistic time expectations of when a failure may occur, any advertising claims and the conditions under which a vehicle should operate. A manufacturer’s warranty is in addition to, not in lieu of your Consumer Guarantees.

Question: What if I have a warranty claim – can you fix that?

Fact: Should you have a warrantable defect, it may be a condition of the warranty that any work to replace or repair the defect is carried out at a dealer workshop/s. However, the manufacturer may still choose at their discretion to allow us to do the work on their behalf.

Question: Can you stamp my logbook?

Fact: We can and WE WILL stamp your log book to verify the work has been conducted by fully qualified staff according to manufacturer’s specifications, using appropriate quality parts.

Question: Will having my car serviced here preserve my resale value?

Fact: Evidence of a well maintained car will usually augur well for upholding resale value.

Question: What about extended warranty or specific ‘service plans’?

Fact: Motor vehicle dealers sometimes offer their own extended warranties on vehicles, which usually kick in after the manufacturer’s warranty and may stipulate that the vehicle must be serviced by the actual dealer offering the warranty. They are generally within their right to impose this condition, although we add the caution that such warranties are not always what they seem and we are happy to advise you on the conditions and relative value before you commit to any service plan.
