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.

    Liked every aspect of organising the clean to getting the clean done. My car was stuttering severely (at 30pm in kia c'eed 2) in 4th gear. Now it drives fine in 4th at 30mph. Also think performance has improved - in general. Very happy with the service. Not to mention a fault was cleared using his diagnostics machine with no additional charge!

    I had my Mercedes SLK carbon cleaned by Ciaran last Saturday and was really impressed! He was old school customer service at its best and went through every single part of the process with me and also took time out to give me some general tips on looking after an older engine. The results where impressive and the car definitely runs much more smoothly now.
