Want to avoid loss of power? Getting intake Manifold runner or flap issues?

Our diagnosis and engine carbon cleaning is your best option!

Why does it get clogged up? As part of the emissions system, some of the dirty exhaust gases are diverted back into the intake manifold to aid reducing combustion temperatures, this in turn reduces combustion temperature and therefore the poisonous NOx gas that we are all so concerned about breathing in. The downside to this is that some of the carbon, resins, oil vapor residues that present in the exhaust gases coat the inside of the intake manifold forming ‘carbon build-up’. Over time this builds up to a point that you’d be shocked the engine is actually able to breath and run!

This leads to symptoms such as poor engine performance, lowered fuel efficiency, engine management warning lights and the limp-home-mode being activated (restricted performance), lowered fuel economy and rough idling.  We have a great wealth of knowledge and specialise in the diagnostics and cleaning of the EGR system. This includes live data analysis using dealer level diagnostics equipment that we include in all our intake manifold cleaning services. 

How do we clean the intake manifold? Firstly we’ll use our dealer level diagnostics equipment to assess the engine management error codes and complete live data analysis. Then assuming the vehicle is fit for cleaning we use our 1, 2, 3 or 4-stage engine carbon cleaning system that includes our world-leading Hydrogen carbon cleaning and our unique chemicals. This means in the majority of instances there is no requirement to remove the manifold for cleaning or replace it with a new part. On completion of the job, which takes approximately 45-60 minutes, we’ll reassess the engine management system and reset any fault codes.

    Great guy, knows his stuff and good at explaining it🤗

    What can i say except 5* service. Red came he explained everything. I told him my long complicated hystory of 4 different diagnosis from different guarages with no diffinitive answer. He did the carbon and chemical clean..i watched as the black carbon left my cars engine. We took it for a test drive. Wow and i mean wow the difference in the power and smoothness of the engine was unbelievable. My car still went into limp/safe mode (original prob) red popped it back onto computer diagnosed my glo plug prob... not £1500 worth as turbo as quoted before.

    Anyway booked in garage tomorrow for repaire and full oil change and he wants to know outcome. And if i still have problems he will come back to re-diagnose but i dont think he will need to....i was sceptical about it being worth doing but from the TOP RATE CUSTOMER SERVICE TO THE AMAZING CLEAN TO MY ENGINE IT WAS WORTH EVERY PENNY.

    Thankyou Red. I will see you very soon to come clean my Bmw engine ���

    Had my BMW 1 Series Petrol done at the start of the month by Red. I was skeptical to start with as I wasnt sure it would do anything, but the process did restore performance to my car, it runs better than before. And to top it off today, the emissions recorded during the MOT are down across the board.I would recommend this to anyone whose emissions are getting high and need to restore performance to the engine.

    Had my car cleaned at my home. James went the extra mile and was fantastic customer service. My car runs much smoother and more mpg. Thank you, James. Would definitely recommend.

    James conducted a stage 3 clean of my 07 Ford Mondeo estate 2.2dci this evening and I can notice the improvement in the car already. She is a lot quieter and changing through gears more smoothly with less revs. He was punctual, polite and professional and talked me through the whole process. I would highly recommend this service.

  • Glen Hunt AvatarGlen Hunt

    Had a 3 stage service today, cleared a EGR issue and now my van is running wonderfully. I'd highly recommend anyone thinking of doing this to book it up and get it done �

    Conor Donnelly AvatarConor Donnelly

  • Mark Ware AvatarMark Ware

    Hey there Jason done a great job on my mini copper s and I have noticed it runs so much better goes better to thank u

    Martin Candler AvatarMartin Candler

    At first I was sceptical about having my car carbon cleaned thought it was just a gimmick how wrong I was it was money well spent, can’t praise this service highly enough if your ever thinking of having your car carbon cleaned just do it or your end up regretting it, I have a 2.2 Ltr mondeo Ghia x diesel that smoked every time I started it and smoked when ever I changed down a gear to accelerate to overtake,now it is like driving a new car would just like to say thanks to Adam for a job well done. Nothing was to much trouble for Adam answered any questions I had and explained every step of the clean in a none technical language so anybody could understand.

    Well done Adam top man

Why clean the Intake Manifold?

The intake manifold is a set of tubes configuration to deliver the air to the cylinders. In all engines, this air comes through a filtered air intake designed to keep the engine and components such as the manifold clean. However, with the need to make engines more efficient and reduce emissions manufacturers have introduced an EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) system into the engine. The problem occurs due to the recirculation including oil, unspent fuel, and other deposits that as they enter the manifold then stick to the walls of the manifold tubes and begin to clog them up. The engine then receives reduced air flow, starts to become inefficient and doesn’t burn all the fuel. This leads to loss of performance and increased emissions and pollution.

Problems that may occur from a dirty manifold include uneven and a noisy idle (usually the first sign of the issue), a tendency to stall, misfires and hesitation (especially when the engine is cold).

Cleaning your Intake Manifold

There are numerous ways to resolve a clogged intake manifold and with varying prices.

The costliest option is to replace the component. Dependent on the vehicle manufacturer and engine type expect this to be in the region of high £100’s, if not £1000’s.

The moderately expensive alternative is to manually clean them. Most mechanics will recommend this – Why? Because they’ll earn well from the extensive hours it takes to complete the job. The price will be dependant on how bad the clogging within the manifold, labour rates and engine type but expect it to be in the £100’s.

The most cost-efficient solution would be our engine carbon cleaning service.

Preventative cleaning starts from as little as £89.99 (for a car)
