Recharge Diesel Emissions Fluid Service & Cost

What is recharging the diesel emissions fluid all about?

Modern so-called clean diesel vehicles use a solution containing urea and ionized water to help control exhaust emissions. The solution is injected into the exhaust stream, where it reacts with the vehicle’s catalyst to reduce harmful emissions in the exhaust stream.

The diesel emissions fluid is carried onboard in its own reservoir. They are typically quite large, allowing very extensive mileages before requiring replenishment. The tanks are usually fitted with a special spout connector to ease refills, but they can be located in places that require the removal of other parts.

Keep in mind:

  • Most cars will provide a warning that the diesel emissions fluid is running low, but many will prevent the vehicle from being restarted once a certain low level has been reached.
  • If the car is switched off after the critically low level of diesel emissions fluid has been achieved, it may be inoperable and require a refill/reset before it will start again.
  • Refills are few and far between, so it’s well worth staying ahead of this situation.

How it's done:

  • The diesel emission fluid is verified to see if it needs to be serviced
  • The fuel door is located and opened
  • The DEF cap, blue in color and normally located next to the gas cap under the fuel door, is removed
  • The manufactured recommend fluid is poured in slowly until it has reached the manufactures recommend capacity
  • The cap is replaced and twisted tight until it “clicks” (similar to a gas cap)

Our recommendation:

With every routine maintenance service, have our mechanic check the diesel emissions fluid levels on your car, and refill as needed.

What are the common symptoms indicating you need to recharge the diesel emissions fluid?

  • A warning light will illuminate to indicate the diesel emissions fluid is low
  • On heavy trucks, power will be reduced in stages.

How important is this service?

Since the car will not start or restart once it runs out of diesel emissions fluid, it’s critical to maintain adequate levels.

Casey

On account of me forgetting my phone number, there was confusion in the beginning on where my car was parked. Due to obvious communication issues. so we got off to a later start. It was parked on the side of the road, not in a driveway yet Casey said nothing about it. Casey was genuine about the situation and was easy to laugh at the situation with me. Whether or not he was assuming I knew nothing about the issues my car was facing. He still took the time to listen to what I had to say. From the issues it had in the beginning, to now, the work I had done on it already and even listened to what I thought needed to be done. We found the core issue pretty quickly and resolved it in no time at all. I really don't like standing around, so I liked that he let me participate in the repairs as well as teaching me a few things I either didn't know or had never thought of. Within an hour we were doing the final inspection of everything, did a quick pick up of tools. Finally, after 2 weeks of fighting this thing, just trying to get someone knowledgeable enough to 'COME OUT TO WHERE MY CAR WAS' (saving me hundreds getting it towed into an auto repair shop.) and help me fix my car, I was driving away!! Not only was Casey someone I'd recommend for anyone who can appreciate and/or are looking for someone who just wants to honestly help people, with integrity in a laid back professional manner. I'll be calling him back next time I need somethin done. FIRSHIR. This company is absolutely perfect!! I've been wishing for something like this for a while now... Glad someone finally put it together. I'm glad I stumbled upon it more. lol Thank you
