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.

Adrian was brilliant, you know, straight away that he knows what he’s talking about. I felt my car was in very safe hands. He gave me plenty of information on all aspects of my car from the... diagnostic check. The car came up with ‘emissions go to garage’, now it runs beautifully. I’ve got my MOT next week, I’m confident it will sail through. I wouldn’t hesitate to use this company again.read more

Had Adrian coming over to do carbon clean on my S5. Very professional, clean, knowledgeable. While I was minding my own business Adrian has carbon cleaned the engine. I've received detailed... diagnostic report through WhatsApp, where the important faults we've discused later on. This was a really great service for very affordable payment. Great communication and approach. Car has improved exactly the way I expected. Engine response is now a tad better, just the little nip I was missing and slightly upped mpg I'd say too, will see on the longer run yet. Very much recommended. I'll be calling again when time comes.read more

Adrian came to do an Engine carbon clean and diagnostic consultation on both my Audi A4 and A6. Explained the whole process of the carbon clean and what it actually does and doesnt do. He also spent... time to go through the live diagnostics explaining what the results show and what they mean which is something all garages do not do. I have a better understanding of an issue i have with my A4 all thanks to Adrian.After the engine clean wow!! the difference it makes. The older A4 is over 15 years old and now drives like a brand new car. The drive is smooth, the engine sounds quieter and the engine wobble at idle has pretty much reduced to nothing.Highly recommend Adrian, he goes above and beyond to get your car healthy again.read more

I have had a noise in my car for the past 3 months and RAC who caused the issue and their approved garage couldn’t find anything. Adrian came to me and as soon as I turned my engine on he guessed at... the issue, after looking at his data his guess was incredibly accurate. Not only does my car now run better, I am now able to finally do what RAC couldn’t and get my car fixed. Thank you Adrian superb customer service and superb data analysis. If I could rate more than 5 stars I would.read more

After the MOT test I was informed the car required a new Turbo approx £4.5k due to issues with the car emissions. Got the car checked by another mechanic and he recommended I should get the engine... checked by these guys due to the number of clients who had shared good reviews. Quick call and prompt service. In about an hour they carried out their work and back for another MOT. Passed, no need for a new Turbo...just a carbon clean up !read more
