This service removes built up carbon deposits in the induction system, throttle body and EGR valve. We do this by removing the air intake, setting up the application tool and applying foaming Prostream Diesel Cleaner into the induction system. Lastly we add an In-tank Fuel System cleaner to treat the fuel tank and the rest of the fuel system for any contamination and moisture. Work Includes;
Remove air intake - set up application tool
Apply cleaner into induction system through throttle body
Fuel System Check
Tank Additive to clean supply side
Scan Tool Diagnostic Check
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
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.
