Help with GC Overland WK2 2011 with 3.0L V6 Turbo Diesel Engine

Hi! sorry if this is not the place for this cry for help :P

I inherited a 2011 Grand Cherokee Overland from my father that passed away,
the suv had problem with the DPF and the mechanics that worked on it they opened the DPF, removed everything that had inside and then put it back in, so i have several problems with the computer and the check engine is always on. So i found a specialist here in my country, oh i forgot to mention the SUV was imported from Germany to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, yup thats right im in the caribbean right now, so i found a specialist and he says that i should buy a replacement DPF, but ive been checking forums and all of it and it seems that is better to remove it, please i dont know much about vehicules i really want to keep the SUV because it was my dads what suggestion can you give me? or point me to the things i need to eliminate the DPF.

Thanks in advance and sorry for any mispelling.

Daren

You need to get an ECU tune with DPF delete.

Sorry, what is DPF? We could have a whole thread on the acronyms I've been seeing.

The DPF is your diesel particulate filter. Environmental standards in most countries require diesel particles to be filtered out of your exhaust (DPF). There is a metal weave inside the DPF consisting of titanium, to which the particles cling. When it reaches a certain level of fullness, the onboard computer in your ECM will initiate a process to clean the filter out, called a filter regeneration. Most of the time it happens in the background and you don't see it, roughly 90% of the time.
