Diesel Intake & EGR Carbon Cleaning


Is your Car Breathing Properly?

If you notice your car seems to be suffering from poor fuel economy, is lacking power when accelerating, displays an overall lack of power or the engine seems to be unusually hot all the time, it could be time for a carbon clean.

Diesel engine intake and carbon cleaning is an essential but often overlooked part of maintaining a modern diesel engine. Most people do not realise how much carbon builds up in their engines. It accumulates on pistons, rings, valves and injectors. Build up in EGR valves and intake manifolds causes engines to run rough, have reduced power and use more fuel.

Why Get a Carbon Clean

Since 1999 most cars in built in Australia will have an EGR system of some kind. If your vehicle happens to be fitted with an EGR system, there is something you should know. Carbon buildup in Intake Manifold and EGR Valves could be choking your engine.

This is common in both petrol and diesel engines, but turbo and diesel engines tend to be more susceptible to the problem, especially where a PCV system is used.  P & L Mechanical Services have the skills and equipment to give your engine a full carbon clean. This helps ensure correct fuel mix, improve efficiency and fuel economy and generally assists in protecting the engine.
