🗣️ ‘The biggest difference is the noise. Even the wife can tell. Its smoother and quieter. So when I get that new part and get the better fuel back in, will be even better. The biggest thing I wanted was for you to tell me the car is OK. So I’m very happy. Thank you’
⚠️ Own a keeper? Get it back to its best and keep it sweet by booking in with us for a diagnostic consultation and Engine Carbon Clean.
🚗 Here we have a Nissan Qashqai (2010 – 92,145 miles) booked in for diagnostics and Engine Carbon Clean. The vehicle usage has changed recently from long journeys to mainly short and performance has started to decline, noise increased and recently not been starting well.
🔎 Initial health checks showed little of note other than an increased bass note in the engine from vibration (classic symptom of carbon buildup) and a relatively sluggish response when revved.
📈 Diagnostics showed an active code for the glow plug controller which when documented and cleared was immediately back on. This explains the starting issues. Everything else appeared fine in the live data.
⚙️ On with the clean and after just 10 minutes the engine had settled and quietened and by the end was quiet, smooth and responsive again.
ℹ️ The owner can now get the glow plug controller replaced and look forward to the road ahead confident that all is well and running sweetly.
