Diagnostic Consultation and Engine Carbon Clean – Mercedes SLK230 (1998 – 46,406 miles)

⚠️ Treat your cherished vehicle to some TLC.

📝 ‘Very happy with the service provided on my 1998 Mercedes SLK230. I am always careful who I use when having work done on my vehicles but all of the positive reviews of F5ECC made my decision to have the engine carbon cleaned by this company. Adrian kept me updated with information at the time of booking the car in and his communication was excellent. He phoned me to let me know an estimated arrival time and arrived at exactly this time! I was very interested in seeing what is done, Adrian talked me through the diagnostic procedure detailing what each code meant sending me copies of stored and current fault codes whilst he was there which I can give to a garage at a later date. He showed me how the carbon clean was done and was honest throughout in that the procedure can work better/outcomes can be more noticeable on some cars more than others, this will depend on how well they have been maintained, mileage, whether used for short journeys. I asked a lot of questions and Adrian answered them thoroughly. Adrian is a top bloke and it is without doubt that he knows his job inside out, I would highly recommend this company to anyone. Thanks Adrian!‘ ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

💻 Initial diagnostics showed a long history of codes from over the years – as usual we provided a PDF documented copy for the owner and cleared those down. The only one to address was an intermittent one from an oxygen sensor.

📊 Live data monitoring showed a surprising amount of data for a 1998 vehicle – all looking good.

👨‍🔧 On with the clean and the engine soon smoothed out and quietened down and by the end it was quiet, smooth and responsive again.
