Live Data Diagnostic Consultation

A live data diagnostic session of the vehicle with a live walk-through and explanation.

Ideal for engine management lights, DPF issues, limp mode issues and other dashboard lights, identifying underlying faults you may not be aware of.

Typically the diagnostic also includes other areas of the vehicle such as air conditioning, brakes, etc.

A diagnostic consultation includes:
– Initial code check, documented and emailed to you where relevant.
– Clearing the codes and then monitoring the reappearance of codes/faults and documenting when and in what pattern they reoccur.
– Live data monitoring to look at all available engine data including EGR movement and gas flow, DPF data, injector data, etc. This allows us to diagnose and identify issues where an engine code may not have been logged, e.g. faulty thermostat or failing (but not yet failed) sensor.
⏱️ Typically a minimum of 30 minutes (depending on the complexity of the issues encountered).

🧰 Multiple genuine licensed and up-to-date diagnostics equipment are used. Emailed reports are dependent on the capabilities of the diagnostic tool used for best diagnosis.

From £50 per vehicle

Engine Carbon Clean

An IMI Certified and Which? Trusted Traders approved Engine Carbon Clean for combustion engines of any age and mileage.

Get your vehicle diagnosed and then running smooth, quiet, economical and emissions friendly again.

Suitable for all fossil fuel combustion engines whether petrol, diesel, LPG, hybrid or any other hydrocarbon such as methane, etc.

INCLUDES the full diagnostic consultation as detailed above (where applicable).

⏱️ Typically takes a minimum of one hour from arrival to departure (plus 50 minutes for each additional vehicle). Clean length varies depending upon the complexity of the vehicle intake system and the level of buildup present and/or any pre-existing issues with the vehicle.

Prices quoted are for vehicles up to 12-litre engine size – for vehicles/engines over 12 litres in size contact us for scheduling and prices.

£109 for one vehicle
£100 each for two vehicles at the same time and place
£90 each for three or more vehicles at the same time and place

DPF Investigation and Clean

An advanced DPF cleaning and diagnostics service.
1) Diagnose the issue, Identify any underlying cause of a failure to regenerate 2) perform an advanced DPF clean (if required). This is a LAST RESORT option.
Most DPF issues DON'T require a DPF Clean - the vast majority require the underlying cause of the issue (sensor, thermostat, glow plug, component) diagnosing, replacing and then natural regeneration will reoccur.
N.B. Please note that 'forced' regenerations are typically not a solution to DPF issues, hence we do not perform them.
⏱️ Typically takes a minimum of 90 minutes and up to 3 hours from arrival to departure.

❗ Not all vehicles are suitable for working on at the roadside depending upon the layout of the DPF pipework. Arrangements may need to be made to perform the service at a garage of your choice.

From £50-229 per vehicle (depending if the clean is required).

This was the second time Adrian has been out to do a carbon clean for us. Booking process was easy, Adrian is responsive to messages and very informative. Primarily had the most recent carbon clean... for preventative/maintenance but have been really impressed with the improvements we have seen in how smooth/quiet the car runs now. Will be sure to ask Adrian to come round to do a clean on our other car as it approaches is warranty more

I recently had my van in the garage for a few oil leaks and few other repairs. After repairing my van, the garage recommend my van had a carbon clean due to the build up of carbon in my turbo pipe.... Looked around and came across Adrian Charles of Engine Carbon East Midlands. Adrian who is very professional and very formative with the information / diagnosis of my van. He kept me up to date with everything he was doing and made sure I understood the information he was showing me. Since having the carbon clean I didn’t think I would see much of a difference in the running of my van. Believe I was wrong, maybe just my van but I could see a massive difference in my vans performance. Thank you more

Very happy with the service provided by Adrian today on my Skoda Octavia. Car feels smoother to drive and the engine is far quieter now after the carbon clean. The engine diagnostics and live data is... great to see how your engine is performing, and I know what needs to be replaced to get my car running 100% again. Thanks again Adrian, highly recommend you and your services to anybody looking for diagnostics/carbon clean!*** Update*** I’ve driven around 180 miles in the 5 days since my carbon clean was carried out, the results are even better than I was initially seeing. My car has continued to run smoother than ever before, with the mpg being the biggest difference - I’ve had an increase of 8mpg just driving around town and short journeys on dual carriageways. Looking forward to seeing what difference it’ll make on a longer motorway trip! Once again, thank you Adrian. I will 100% be back to use your services again, I am very much impressed!read more

What can I say? My Audi S5 was running a bit rough and occasionally the check engine light came on. Now I already know this chap has a great S5 too and know he knows his stuff. I had a feeling my... symptoms were related to carbon buildup so thought I’d give this a whirl.Well it’s certainly made a huge difference to the car! It’s like night and day, the slight misfires I had have disappeared and it’s as smooth as silk. I’m still going to get a full manual carbon clean do as this treatment doesn’t do the manifold or behind the inlet valves but honestly it’s the best £90 I’ve spent on the car. He also did my supercharged Range Rover which I thought was running great anyway but that also now is even smoother and picks up much quicker as well.Don’t hesitate to get your pride and joy done too.Top marksread more

Extremely professional, arrived on time, kept me updated with ETA and fitted me in very quickly. Adrian talked me through the whole process, he did a full diagnostic, explained everything thoroughly... and cleared the codes. The carbon clean took approx 60mins, now car runs lovely and smooth with improved responsiveness and a slightly better mpg figure. Adrian has looked after 2 of my cars so far. - He comes highly recommend as the service is second to none and really knows his stuff and just a nice genuine guy. Thank you Adrian! Glad you liked my Saab 9-3 👍🏻read more

Adrian from Engine Carbon Clean came out to work on my wife's BMW 320d which had become sluggish and unresponsive and to put it bluntly, a bit of a pig to drive due to it doing a lot of short runs... and the car being a diesel.After a full diagnostic check to ensure there were no problems which could prevent work being carried out (and all diagnostic reports being sent over to me), he proceeded with the carbon clean service which took less than an hour from start to finish, he even arrived slightly ahead of schedule.Wow, the results are unbelievable. The car is no longer sluggish and the throttle response is massively improved and it even sounds a bit nicer as well.This is the second time I've had Adrian out and from the service on offer, it won't be the last. Very highly recommended!Great communication, knowledge, service and follow up, I literally can't fault this company at all. more
