🚗 Here we have a much loved Ford Cougar 2.5 V6 (1999 61,150 miles) booked in for diagnostic consultation and Engine Carbon Clean.
ℹ️ The owner had reported it being lacking in response, worse on fuel economy and generally running louder, boomy and sluggish compared to what it should be.
🔎 Initial inspection found little of note in the engine bay with no obvious rattles or leaks. There was a tell tale bass purr to the engine and associated boom to the exhaust and the response was a little lacking for what these V6 engines should be like. The engine was also idling a little higher than it should and a little inconsistently.
💻 Initial diagnostics found a couple of old engine codes present including one for the inlet manifold runner control.
📊 Live data monitoring showed good values across the board with no misfires, coolant lovely and warm and lambda values looking good.
👨🔧 On with the clean and the engine and after just ten minutes the bass note started to subside, the engine smoothing out and the revs started to edge a little lower. By the end it was quiet, smooth, responsive and burbly again with a lower RPM and idling steadily.
