Why Carbon Clean?
Cleaning the carbon from your car’s engine every once in a while is a very good idea, giving you the benefits of increased performance, improved fuel economy and the reduced likelihood of a breakdown as well as benefits to the environment due to the reduction in harmful emissions.
Any vehicle that has covered more than 10,000 miles, or is used regularly for ’round town’ driving, benefits from having a “Carbon Clean” – particularly Diesel vehicles fitted with DPF’s.
A typical carbon clean will improve fuel economy by 10%, saving the average motorist approximately £200 per year in improved fuel economy.
DPF DEEP CLEAN
For filters completely blocked
If it has got to the stage where the filter is completely blocked and a manual regeneration does not clear it or only clears it temporarily then a complete clean is the only solution, other than changing the DPF which will be costly. This will require us to inject a special cleaning agent in the DPF to clean it out, or in some circumstances remove the filter and soak it overnight before refitting.
If it gets to the stage of requiring this then we recommend regular cleansing to reduce the chance of it happening again.
Dealing with a blocked DPF. Diesel Particular Filters (DPFs) can and will block prematurely through no fault of their own. If a DPF has blocked prematurely due to a fault further upstream then simply replacing or cleaning the DPF will not resolve the problem and the DPF will block again in just a few miles. Many diesel cars will go over 80,000 miles before the DPF needs professionally cleaning or replacing, so to have a DPF block in just a few miles or months after cleaning or replacing is not acceptable. This clearly indicates that there is a fault upstream or the vehicle has reverted to a stop start repetitive drive cycle for long periods, where no regeneration has been taking place. It is always worth checking to see what regeneration, history is on the ECU, has the car carried out frequent regens and were they successful?
