Engine carbon cleaning is a method of cleaning or maintaining the inside of an engine. After a car has done around 12,000 miles, the performance of the engine begins to decline. It builds up deposits of carbon, tar etc which eventually begins to affect the emissions, plus the power and the efficiency of the car. Ultimately it may mean you need a new engine – a very costly business.
Carbon cleaning can help to keep your engine running smoothly and can remove up to 75% of carbon deposits. It can reduce the wear and tear on other parts of the engine – valves, plugs, injectors etc, it reduces engine noise, exhaust fumes and emissions and generally increases the lifespan of your engine. It can be done on both petrol and diesel engines and can save you from the costly replacement of parts.
The process is simple and ingenious – using water and electrolysis, it splits the water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen which then pass through the engines air intake and exit through the exhaust as a gas. This helps to remove the excess carbon from the engine which may be causing poor running.
The process was developed by scientists in Canada when developing a fuel that was free from emissions. It didn’t work but during the testing, they noticed that carbon deposits were being removed and so it was remarketed as an engine cleaning option.
We recommend that an engine is cleaned every 10,000 or every 12 months, whichever comes sooner so stop any problems before they happen. Our service also helps to identify EGR/DPF faults as well as other expensive problems.
With prices for the engine clean starting at only £75, it’s well worth booking in!
