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

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.

Thanks for the review Andy - was a pleasure meeting you and helping you with your cars
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!

Thanks Shane for the review. Was a pleasure meeting you and helping you with your Porsche
professional service, friendly and very knowledgeable man.
Customer Service
The whole process right from the enquiry stage up to actually having to carbon clean process was excellent. Really good communication and Adrian arrived on time. During the clean Adrian explained each of the steps and showed the processes happening and the live data as it was happening. As for the results, Well, surprisingly it feels a LOT different. Lots more low end power and smoother through the whole rev range. Its lost that little jerking action when letting off the accelerator too. Time will tell on the MPG. Certainly a returning customer when the time arrives.

BMW 120d M sport engine management light
Customer Service
I contacted Adrian and explained the issues I had with my car. This could of been a number of things going on with it as the engine management light came on and the car was in and out of limp mode. I was informed it was the DPF by another party, but this was not the case. However, Adrian booked me in and I was sorted the flowing day. He ran the diagnostics and the fault was with the EGR Valve and not the DPF. Whilst he was here he also gave the engine a clean through (as he deemed it safe to do so). Upon arrival Adrian presents himself in a very professional manner. Nice clean and tidy van, uniform etc. He keeps your car protected from damage throughout the duration he is here by covering over or around the engine bay. After he is done, a full diagnostics report is sent to you for your reference. I now can go with confidence to get my car fixed with the issues that have been brought up through the diagnostics. Thank you Adrian for your service.
