What is engine carbon cleaning
The old fashioned way of removing carbon deposits from an engine is the equivalent to open heart surgery. It entails physically opening up the engine, using chemicals to loosen the carbon then scraping it away and removing it – an extremely laborious task (6-8 hours for a V8 engine) that is both costly and no efficient. Worst still generally a mechanic will only remove the carbon in and around the manifold, intake valves, and cylinder heads. However, much of the carbon deposits build-up later in the engine system e.g. around the EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation system and turbo and exhaust systems which also requires cleaning to fully restore your engine.
Having spent many years in development PowerSystem of Lille, France launched the ground-breaking CarbonCleaning™ Hydrogen technology in 2011. This unique advanced technology pumps and pulses hydrogen through the air intake system burning away the carbon deposits that prevent your engine from running smoothly. This remarkable system is suitable for any petrol, diesel or hybrid engine and has a proven ability to quickly and safely removing carbon build-up deposits from the whole engine system in just 30-45 minutes, the effects are immediate.

Had James out to do a stage 1 map and egr delete on my mk5 golf gttdi and what a difference in power especially when over taking, mpg is also up. Well recommend and will use again. Cheers
I had a stage 3 clean last week and my car now drives like new! Much smoother, particularly between 1st and 3rd gear. Very good service and highly recommend. Cheers Adam.
Adam did an excellent job with my SAAB 9-3ttid. The car is so much more responsive and has a lot better fuel economy. Would recommend to anyone. Thanks mate

Had this done on the 29th April, I've done Terra clean on numerous of cars but that was going to a garage, and more expensive. I found this, it's a lot more budget friendly & took really quick to do. Got a date that matched myself perfectly, had Sean come over and it was all over before it started. My engine's throttle response has increased dramatically even though petrols don't get affected as much as diesels. Also my MPG has increased over so slightly, but for a high performance car that doesn't really interest me. Don't hesitate booking with these people, it's cheaper than most! Thank you!
great service,brilliant at what they do,highly recomend
Today I had a shot of James's new seat Leon Cupra and it drove very well, he then remapped it taking it from 240 bhp - 300bhp. I then had another shot after he remapped it and the diference was massive, the car pulled a lot harder and smoother through every gear

What is engine Carbon Cleaning and how does it work?
Our mobile Technicians offers the most comprehensive service in the UK:-
Not that there has ever been an incident but for your piece of mind all our Technicians are fully qualified and most importantly insured.
We are the only engine carbon cleaning specialists to be Checkatrade (read the many 10/10 reviews) and Trading Standards approved.
- We will inspect the engine for safety purposes.
- We will check for engine management error codes with our dealer-level OBDII port scanners (recording and clearing error codes included).
- Once satisfied your engine is safe and ready if chosen the two to four-stage chemicals are administered, then the Carbon Cleaning™ automated machine is temporarily plumbed into the air intake and the cleaning process is started. Over the next 30 minutes this thoroughly cleans and unclogs the engine from the air intake right through to the exhaust.
- We will once again inspect the engine and check for engine management error codes. If any error codes have returned you will be given further advice.
- Payment is taken by card, cash or bank transfer upon completion of service.
Stage-2 Hydrogen / Injector Cleaning
As Hydrogen and Oxygen are introduced into the engine through the air intake the injectors are the one component that this form of cleaning cannot reach. Therefore here are UK Carbon Cleaning we’ve developed our own injector cleaner solution. This is administered through the fuel system to work in conjunction with the Carbon Cleaning. Clean injectors makes for better atomisation of fuel and therefore closer to complete combustion is achieved which in turn means less carbon build-up!
Recommended for petrol non-turbo engines as a package with Hydrogen Carbon Cleaning.
2-stage Engine Carbon Cleaning process
Stage-3 Chemical / Hydrogen / Injector Cleaning
Our own UK branded chemical carbon cleaner solution is designed to work in conjunction with the Hydrogen Carbon Cleaning. This unique chemical was developed when we realised that despite Hydrogen having some amazing results there are some limitations. Some carbon build-up retains moisture (mainly oily residues) which restricts the Hydrogen from interacting with the carbon as well as it could. This chemical is designed to burn as much of this oily residue away and dry out what is left so that thereafter the Hydrogen cleaning can produce better results.
Recommended for petrol turbo and all diesel engines as a package including Hydrogen Carbon Cleaning and injector cleaning.
3-stage Engine Carbon Cleaning process
Stage-4 Chemical / Hydrogen / Injector Cleaning plus DPF Regeneration Aid
Our own UK branded DPF chemical solution designed to aid a Diesel Particulate Filter to burn soot at temperatures as low as 300c (usual regeneration temperatures are >600c). This is a preventative solution to prevent DPF clogging and increase the lifespan of the DPF. NOTE: This is not a replacement DPF Cleaning
Recommended for diesel vehicles with a DPF (but not for those that run Ad-blue) as a package including Chemical Carbon Cleaning, Hydrogen Carbon Cleaning and Injector Cleaning.
