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

Zafira with a stutter
Customer Service
Our Zafira has been a workhorse for the best part of 12 years and in the last few months developed a fault. The engine management light would come on and then disappear, usually when it was booked into a garage for diagnosis. Eventually, it was diagnosed as the system running lean. But, there was no explanation for it. Any garage will work on trial and error. This could mean injectors to sensors. I saw the YouTube video of Adrian with a similar Zafira and thought that it would be worth contacting ECC and see what they thought. I have an Astra as well so booked both in for diagnosis and Carbon Clean. Adrian was very thorough and professional. Explained the error codes and what could be the cause of the problems. Although they don't do the repair work, the complete diagnosis, working with live data, is invaluable. The potential problem was identified as a stuck thermostat. Not what I would have thought at all. Can't recommend Adrian and ECC enough. I now have a good idea of where to start with the Zafira. For anyone thinking of keeping an older ICE vehicle on the road for longer, I would have ECC out to perform a Carbon Clean. Both the Astra and Zafira now run a lot smoother.

Great Service
Customer Service
Booked in with Engine Carbon Clean on recommendation and Adrian did not fail to disappoint! Flagged issues with the engine I would not have known about until it was broken and its already running much smoother, once I get the work done it will be even better! Would fully recommend to anyone else too.

You’re in safe hands
Customer Service
Adrian was brilliant, you know, straight away that he knows what he’s talking about. I felt my car was in very safe hands. He gave me plenty of information on all aspects of my car from the diagnostic check. The car came up with ‘emissions go to garage’, now it runs beautifully. I’ve got my MOT next week, I’m confident it will sail through. I wouldn’t hesitate to use this company again.

Audi A6 and A4 clean and diagnostic
Customer Service
Adrian came to do an Engine carbon clean and diagnostic consultation on both my Audi A4 and A6. Explained the whole process of the carbon clean and what it actually does and doesnt do. He also spent time to go through the live diagnostics explaining what the results show and what they mean which is something all garages do not do. After the engine clean wow!! the difference it makes. The older A4 is over 15 years old and now drives like a brand new car. The drive is smooth, the engine sounds quieter and the engine wobble at idle has pretty much reduced to nothing. Highly recommend Adrian, he goes above and beyond to get your car healthy again.

Absolutely fantastic work I highly recommend Adrian at engine carbon clean east midlands
Customer Service
Adrian has came out to a few of our cars over the years and each time he's done a wonderful job. The car feels like brand new and it drives excellent. Fuel consumption has dramatically changed for the best, and emissions were definitely reduced. If you want honest reliable and trustworthy carbon cleans Adrian is the man to see. Thanks again for your help and all the best

First Class
Customer Service
I was struggling to find a knowledgeable Auto diagnosis that would not simply plug in a BDO2. .Some want £90 and no printout. Adrian actually encouraged me to stay and watch and provide excellent clear info on what he was doing and how it affected the car as I had for a few pounds extra the engine De-carboned (Cleaned) using the amazing Hydrogen Electrolysis process. He also kept in touch after to see how the faults diagnosed were performing and the repairs I had authorised. Rarely do I give praise, to be honest, but this is a first-class service.

Fantastic service definitely money well spent
Customer Service
Adrian provides a fantastic service, after enquiring with various companies and being promised the earth I came across Adrian at Engine Carbon Clean East Midlands who gave me realistic expectations with his no nonsense approach. We decided to take advantage of the multi-vehicle discount and had a van and 3 cars done and the results exceeded any expectations. We will definitely be rebooking in the future
