Being a vehicle technician I was sceptical but I kid you not my vehicle ran smoother on acceleration and the slight engine vibration I had has disappeared and no more smoke even bigger PLUS my MPG was outstanding I was getting a lot more to the gallon.

Simply the best regular maintenance for your petrol, diesel, LPG or hybrid vehicle of any age and mileage.

Identify and resolve issues, restore fuel economy to save money on fuel, restore performance, pass MOT and avoid future repair bills

Keeping your engine cleaned helps prevent issues such as DPF issues, MOT emissions failures or sticking turbos.

Contact us now to get it running smooth and quiet again – restoring response, fuel economy and lowering emissions.

Our expert and friendly service has been awarded the coveted Which? Trusted Trader of the Month award twice.

Our IMI Certified service is about looking after the overall health of the vehicle, not just turning up to ‘perform a clean’.

Every booking starts with a health check, a diagnostic code scan of the entire vehicle looking for underlying issues (where applicable) and Live data diagnostics throughout to identify issues with injectors, fuel pumps, sensors, etc. which may not be logging errors.

Yes. All hydrocarbon engines create carbon build up depending on the mileage, driving style, journey length and fuel quality used.

You can clean petrol, diesel, LPG, hybrid or anything else such as methane.  Not just cars and vans, but we also work on boats, tractors, tanks, generators, landfill engines, anything really.

Typical symptoms include a decline in fuel economy, noisier engine, increased vibration, sluggish response and smoke/emissions levels.

As fuel economy and emission targets have got stricter over the years the engine components have been developed and added in order to keep the soot within the vehicle rather than passing it out through the exhaust. This then clogs up EGR valves, inlet manifolds and DPFs.

Most people are coming back for repeats approximately every 20-25k miles based on driving style, journey length and fuel quality.

It is best to time the diagnostic and clean just prior to a service or MOT if one is due.

If you have just bought a vehicle or warranty is due to expire then it is a perfect time to get it checked out and cleaned up.

Yes it does and it is very good at what it does as long as the relevant pre-checks are performed to ensure an effective clean and critically it is done by someone who is properly trained, certified, with the right approach and equipment.

An Engine Carbon Clean is great at cleaning up the back of a turbo, combustion chamber, injector tips, pistons, cylinders and cats to get a vehicle running smooth, quiet, responsive, economical and emissions friendly again, but will not clean up cold areas such as EGR valves or inlet manifolds and won’t unblock a DPF.

The only way to clean up these cold areas safely and effectively is a manual approach, e.g. strip and clean of the EGR or ‘walnut blast’ the inlet.

The Engine Carbon Clean is complementary to these manual approaches as they are targeted at different areas.

Cleaning up the combustion chamber cleans up the source of the dirt – this helps minimise future buildup in the EGR and inlet manifold as well as extends the mileage between DPF regenerations.


Why Book Us

A dirty engine has to work harder against the dirt. To do this it uses more fuel, vibrates more causing more noise, shaking and lumpy running and increases emissions eventually causing MOT failure.

The more it shakes the more it will wear parts such as engine mounts, clutches, etc. so combat this before it becomes a problem.

Prevention is better than repair!

A booking with us is essentially a health check and detox for your vehicle.

What We Offer

A fully insured mobile service for all combustion engines running petrol, diesel, LPG, hybrid no matter what age, engine size or mileage.

Had my C Class Merc, with 75k miles on the clock, given an engine clean by Adrian last month, as my mpg had got noticeable lower in the last 12 months. Since the clean the mpg has improved by 19%,... back to the levels I was getting when I first bought the car. Well worth the money as getting around 100 miles more on a full tank when doing longer distance trips. Adrian very efficient and also gave helpful advice about which fuel to use and when best to tank more

I have read negative reviews... regarding carbon cleaning of engines but I very impressed with the improved performance . Whilst performing the service Adrian also helped to diagnose an intermittent idling issue which four garages (two JLR specialists) were unable to do . Very impressed with result and overall performance of vehicle . Would highly recommendread more

Iv used Adrian in the past and has always been great this time I let him loose on my audi rs5 sad he certainly made my car happy. She had a judder and after a full carbon clean she was purporting... with no issues. Adrian used full protection to protect the car body from the hoses and was very helpful and polite, he comes highly recommended and will always use him to clean my car engine's. Thanks Adrianread more

I had Adrian come out to clean my engine. A vivaro on a 67 plate, the difference in driving it afterwards was significantly better. Smother response to the throttle. Adrain was also very... knowledgeable about his craft. Explained exactly what was going on. Also did a diagnostic and gave me the results. Highly recommended and I shall be using him again. Thanks Adrianread more

Incredible service. I can't believe how much improvement it's achieved just from a pipe shoved up the air filter for an hour. It's alleviated so many shakes and the whole engine and car is smoother.... It revs lower, shifts easier, accelerates quicker and smoother, has gained economy, and I'm sure will extend the working age of the vehicle. Forget recommendations, this is a necessity.
