Why do it?

Carbon build up is not a case of “if”. It will occur.

In most diesel engines it is a progressive build up that accelerates over time to affect the efficient operation of your vehicle. As it happens progressively you don’t notice it’s affects.

Excessive carbon build up affects how your engine “breathes” by restricting air flow into the engine. The choking of the airways your engine breathes through will lead to issues such as poor throttle response, loss of engine power and increased fuel consumption.

By performing a Diesel Intake System and EGR valve Carbon Clean you will

  • Improve performance
  • Improve fuel economy
  • Smooth rough idle
  • Reduce DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) Regeneration Cycles
  • Lower emissions

How does Carbon build up?

Diesel Engines rely on drawing in large quantities of air to operate efficiently, over time carbon deposits build up on the inner walls of the induction system due to emission control devices such as exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valves sending exhaust gases and unburnt fuel back into the induction system. Also the use of low viscosity engine oils and sealed crankcase ventilation.

Short trips and city driving also contribute to carbon build up.

As carbon deposits form they attract more carbon, accelerating the process.

How often is a Diesel Intake System and EGR valve Carbon Clean needed?

  • Every 30,000 km when your diesel vehicle does mainly short trips/city driving
  • Every 50,000 km when your diesel vehicle does mainly long trips/freeway driving
  • When you start to have poor fuel economy
  • When you notice your vehicle is sluggish
  • When your vehicle doesn't provide the power it used to
  • When your vehicle doesn't idle well

What does a Diesel Intake System and EGR valve Carbon Clean do?

  • Cleans intake manifold
  • Cleans EGR valve
  • Removes contaminants and moisture from fuel tank & fuel lines
  • Removes carbon deposits
  • Improves fuel consumption
  • Improves performance & driveability
  • Gives a smoother idle
  • Reduce DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) Regeneration Cycles
  • Reduces exhaust emissions
