Diesel Particulate Filter Cleaning
Cleaning your DPF should be done when suggested by the manufacturer; otherwise, the filter will go into “regeneration” too frequently causing you to lose miles per gallon or power. Filter regeneration is the process by which the filter removes diesel particulate matter from the exhaust gas and burns off the matter. This process occurs at highway speeds, above 40 MPH. Your filter will become saturated during normal use causing it to regenerate too often. Also, if your vehicle is consistently used at low speeds, less than 40 MPH, your DPF may not regenerate properly. This can cause the filter to become saturated faster, which will damage it over time.
Save yourself the expense of having to replace your filter by letting us service it for you. We use The EvacuBlast System which is the most cost effective and thorough DPF Cleaning System on the market today. Let C, G, & J Inc help you save money on fuel costs and avoid unnecessary repair bills by servicing your diesel particulate filter today!

On August 5, 2010, just two days prior to our scheduled departure date…we learned that the Charge Air Cooler in our 2005 Monaco Camelot had an air leak….With no time to spare, the Charge Air Cooler was removed from the motorhome, placed in the bed of our pickup truck, and off we sped to Gadsden, a four hour drive from home. (They) had it rebuilt and ready in a day, and we were on our way back to Dickson.
The happy ending was that we arrived in Redmond in plenty of time…We highly recommend C, G, & J Inc. in Gadsden should you need service or rebuilding of Charge Air Coolers, Radiators, or Oil Coolers.
