Why do it?

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

In most petrol engines it is however a slow build up and takes time to affect the efficient operation of your car. As it happens slowly you don’t notice it’s affects.

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

By performing a Petrol Intake System Carbon Clean you will

  • Improve performance
  • Improve fuel economy
  • Smooth rough idle
  • Lower emissions

How does Carbon build up?

Carbon contamination in the induction system is more of an issue than ever. This is due to a number of factors:

  • Engine design with direct injection engines no longer “washing” valves and intakes as they inject the fuel directly into the combustion chamber.
  • Extended service intervals
  • Short trips and city driving.
  • High exhaust gas recirculation flow rates to regulate the production of Nox (Nitrogen Oxides)
  • Low viscosity engine oils that promote higher oil misting through the PCV (Positive Crankcase Ventilation) system
  • Turbo charging systems that allow oil bypass through turbine shaft seals
  • As carbon deposits form they attract more carbon, accelerating the process.

How often is a Petrol Intake System Carbon Clean needed?

  • Every 60,000 km when your vehicle does mainly short trips/city driving
  • Every 80,000 km when your 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

Please Note: This service is recommended for modern “direct injection” petrol engines. For older non-direct injection petrol engines see Prostream Petrol Injector Clean and Decarb
