Diesel Injector Removal
It is well documented on how many modern common rail diesel-engined vehicles on our roads today are now suffering from extremely difficult to remove or worse case, seized in diesel fuel injectors. There are a number of possible reasons why this can happen including corrosion, water ingress, seat leakage, carbon build-up to name but a few. In some cases, if these problems are not discovered early enough, many injectors can be seized so tightly into the cylinder head, that they are almost impossible to remove without damaging other components of the engine.
Midland Diesel Solutions have invested heavily in the latest injector removal equipment and whilst we are unable to offer a 100% guarantee of a successful extraction, we are confident that if it can be removed, we’ll have the right tools to do it. In the majority of cases, we would need to have the vehicle in our own workshops to carry out the extraction and we can arrange to collect the vehicle from you if the vehicle cannot be driven.
To book your vehicle in or arrange for us to collect a non-starter, call us on 01455 631821 or send us an e-mail using our simple contact form.

Midland Diesel Solutions will carry out a manufacturers recommended service on all diesel cars and light commercial vehicles. The majority of diesel vehicle owners have a major service carried out at around 12,000 miles or once a year (whichever comes soonest). A regularly serviced vehicle will ensure the smooth running of your engine and provide a service history record, that will help to maintain the value of your vehicle. To get a quote for your vehicle simply use our contact form telling us the make and model and its current mileage and we’ll provide you with the price of the appropriate service required.
As a Delphi Diesel service centre, we have invested in the latest equipment to diagnose and fault find problems on the majority of diesel engine systems. The most common of these is the ‘common rail diesel injection system’ which has resulted in the increased popularity of the diesel engine with performance to match their petrol counterparts and a fuel economy much more superior to petrol engines of similar power output and performance. With quite a complex fuel delivery system it is extremely difficult to identify where a problem in the system exists without the use of specialist diagnostic equipment and is beyond the scope of the ‘DIY motorist’. This is where Midland Diesel Solutions can provide the diagnosis and resolve the problems. If you have a problem and no one else can fix it, leave it to the experts and call us on 01455 631821 or send us an e-mail using our simple contact form.
Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) bypass
Most modern diesel cars, vans and commercial vehicles built after 2006 have a DPF or Diesel Particulate Filter as part of the exhaust system. This is a filter designed to reduce the soot particles generated as a result of the combustion process, exiting from the exhaust system and adding to the pollution of our atmosphere. This was made a requirement by Government on diesel vehicles produced after 2006 but diesel fuel producers in the UK now provide us with an ultra-low sulphur diesel product that has significantly reduced the need for this DPF.
Now the problem is, that these filters will eventually clog up, particularly if your diesel vehicle only does short journeys as in order for the filter to ‘passively regenerate itself’ the engine needs to be run at road speeds of at least 50mph for periods of 30 minutes or more in fourth gear. On many vehicles, a clogged up filter causes the engine management system to display a warning light which should be investigated further and appropriate action is taken. This could be as simple as a half-hour drive up and down the motorway to trigger the ‘passive regeneration’ process. In other cases, the vehicle may go into ‘limp’ mode and you may be faced with an expensive bill as the DPF will need to be replaced.
Midland Diesel Solutions are able to ‘electronically program OUT the DPF’ in your vehicle so that you’ll never have to face an expensive replacement bill.
Call us on 01455 631821 or contact us to see if your vehicle is fitted with a Diesel Particulate Filter and whether this service is available on your make and model.
