💬 ‘A million times better than it was, its a lot quieter and a lot more responsive. Overall very pleased. I’m also going to keep putting quality fuel in it just to see over time how it performs.’
⚠️ Just bought a vehicle? Unsure of its history? Get it diagnosed and cleaned up with our Which? Trusted Traders approved service.
🚗 Here we have a Mercedes C220 (2010 – 70,537 miles) booked in for diagnostics consultation and Engine Carbon Clean.
ℹ️ The owner has only recently purchased the vehicle and having a limited #warranty with it wanted to get it checked out and cleaned up before putting too many miles on it.
🔎 Initial inspection of the engine bay found a fair amount of vibration from the rather new looking engine cover and whilst the same size and shape as the original cover it was missing a foot hole compared to the original. There was a tell-tale rumble from the dirty engine also present. With no obvious leaks or other rattles then on with the diagnostics.
💻 A recent code clear left the vehicle with very few codes present, but what was there we documented and cleared for the owner.
📊 Live data looked fine across the board, but the most interesting thing was the historic DPF data. The DPF data looked like it had been reset prior to purchase with a minimal number of regenerations during the DPF lifetime and an Ash content reset prior to purchase – this may have been down to a clean or perhaps a replacement. Thermostat temperatures looked fine.
❗ Whilst the live data looked fine, the owner is now aware and can keep an eye on the DPF going forward.
👨🔧 On with the clean and it soon smoothed out and quietened down and by the end was quiet, smooth and responsive again.
