Carbon is a natural by-product of burning fossil fuels in a combustion engine. Carbon buildup gathers over time and causes an engine to labour, vibrate and over fuel. This leads to excessive:

- rumble and shake
- fuel usage (declining MPG)
- smoke and emissions
- wear and tear on other components (engine mounts, etc.)
- DPF regeneration in Diesel vehicles.
- sluggishness, lag and sticking turbo

Expert carbon clean East Midlands.
Customer Service
Just had mine and my son’s Audi S3 carbon cleaned by Adrian, a very professional and knowledgeable guy. I have now had Adrian out on my previous Audi A4 3.0tdi and now twice on my S3 (first time was 9th Feb 2019). A full diagnostic before the clean, after the clean car feels smoother with a crisper response. I would highly recommend Adrian and the multi car discount was a bonus. Very happy satisfied customer again.

Thanks for the review John - was a pleasure seeing you again and helping you both with your Audis.
Professionalism at its best
Customer Service
From the very first contact with Adrian, his professionalism was evident. I received text alerts the day before arrival and kept updated of any time changes. It was a pleasure to have Adrian working on my car, his COVID awareness and prep were impeccable. Throughout the process, he was happy to share his findings and happily answered any questions I had. His knowledge of his trade was mind-blowing and clearly has pride in what he does. I would absolutely recommend this service but more importantly, I’d defiantly recommend Adrian.

Adrian from engine carbon clean done a great job.
Customer Service
10 / 10 would recommend to anyone, the difference in the car (e91 330d) is amazing. Adrian is a very friendly and knowledgeable guy and spends time to explain everything and go through fault codes stored in the cars ECU. He has such a passion for his job its nice to see and im already booking him in to come back to another car of mine in a month's time. Thanks again Adrian.

BMW 1 Series DPF diagnostic and clean
Customer Service
Needed a diagnostic for my BMW 1 series to resolve a DPF error code. Adrian came on time, was very professional and resolved the issue without the need for a full DPF clean, therefore saving me money which he could have quite easily scammed out of me, but didn’t. I also had a carbon clean performed on my Kia Cee’d too. Both cars seemed smoother, sharper with a few extra MPG’s. I would highly recommend.

Excellent service
Customer Service
I had my Jaguar X type carbon cleaned by Adrian from F5 Engine Carbon Clean. The car was showing no faults but a bit noisy and with 98k on the clock thought I would give it a try. Adrian arrived exactly when he said he would, explained in great detail the process and expected results. One hour later, job complete - the engine runs considerably quieter and smoother, more responsive. The results are just what I wanted and cannot recommend these guys highly enough. Would definitely recommend to one and all, especially owners with diesel engined motors. I will not hesitate to call them again.

Fantastic Service. It’s rare to find a company which takes customer satisfaction so seriously
Customer Service
Adrian recently Carbon cleaned my van. He was punctual, offered excellent communication and his service improved the way that my van runs. The first thing Adrian did when I called was to ascertain that I had realistic expectations as to the benefits of a carbon clean. He is very honest, and certainly not just out to grab money. His service was extremely well organised and Adrian is very efficient. He carried out in depth live data analysis on the van whilst performing the clean, and shared relevant data/results with me immediately via WhatsApp. My van is now smoother, quieter and more responsive, and I am also now aware of another issue identified by Adrian which I can have repaired to save potential excessive wear on the engine. Adrian has since followed up via text message to ensure I am happy with everything. Adrian provides a top quality service on all fronts, and one which I will be sure to recommend widely. I will certainly use Adrian again without hesitation. I have used another company in the past for a carbon clean, and the experience was nowhere near to the service Adrian offers. You should book with confidence. Thanks so much!
