⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘After the clean my car runs a lot smoother and it is a lot quieter. I can wholeheartedly recommend’
🚗 Mitsubishi Shogun 3.2 diesel (2010 – 145,287 miles)
🙋Reason for booking in…
‘I recently bought the car with 144,000 miles on it and not much service history so it’s just for peace of mind. No dash lights on, I just think it runs a bit roughly.’
🔎 Initial inspection found no obvious issues in the engine bay apart from a bass rumble indicating the level of buildup present.
📊 Initial code read found…
No codes present 😁
🔎 Live data showed all values looking good for exhaust temps, DPF regeneration, EGR movement, etc. all looking fine, BUT was running cooler than it should.
🗣️ The owner said that he had noticed it taking a while to warm up which confirmed the temperature issue.
❗ After 13 years and 145k miles a new thermostat required.
🧑🔧 On with the clean and it soon smoothed out, quietened down and by the end it was quiet, smooth and responsive again.
