Great customer service and car feels new!
Customer Service
100% recommend engine carbon clean East Midlands, Adrian was responsive, polite and really informative, the service was impeccable, I really wasn't expecting so much insight and information, very detailed and knowledgeable whilst explaining the process. I have a 2014 s max power shift that was feeling a little clunky having done 103,000 miles, after the clean I was driving up the hill near me and the car felt like when I first got it 4 years and 95,000 miles ago!! It pulled well and auto felt a lot smoother in the gear change, early indications look like the MPG will improve. One thing I will say, Adrian was very candid about what services I did and didn’t need, so if you’re doubting or confused about his services just pick up the phone or message him, I felt like he had my best interest as a customer. He charged exactly what he quoted and finished the job in the time promised, highly recommended.

Amazing service and job
Customer Service
My review after 2 weeks of engine carbon clean: my car (Volvo C30 1,8 petrol) is going well, better than before. Not sluggish and the rpm is going quicker back to the normal idle. I have less smoke when the engine is cold. I would give 10 star instead of five. Thank you, great job.

Carbon Clean c250
Customer Service
Adrian did a great job, walked me through what he was going to do. He emailed the diagnostic results which is very handy for my next service etc. My car now after the clean has improved performance and more responsive noticeably between 40-70 mph. Also the mpg went up from 42.2-47.1 I would really recommend Adrian, very professional and pleasant guy to talk too.

Excellent service! 5*
Customer Service
Adrian did an engine clean on both cars in our household. From the moment I made the initial enquiry contact with him right through to completing the cleans, very professional and reliable. During the clean a diagnostics is carried out on the car to check for any error codes which was I didn’t expect as some garages even charge to do a diagnostics! Adrian talked me through the cleaning process and what I could expect after and was very knowledgeable about the runnings of the cars engine which was very reassuring. He also offered advise on another issue on one of our cars which I will be getting fixed to help remedy a temperature issue. Overall, I would definitely recommend his services and was very happy! The difference in my A6 is very noticeable, the engine is distinctly quieter and picks up a lot quicker than it did before, the same with the A3! Worth getting your cars done!

BMW engine carbon clean 100% recommend
Customer Service
Communication prior to booking was fantastic, on arrival Adrian is clearly very knowledgable and asks plenty of questions to ensure everything is carried out correctly and effectively. I had just purchased a used car, the diagnostic flagged an issue due to car being sat on forecourt for a few weeks. After the engine clean, mpg increased above the expected mpg, even with sport mode on! Would use this service everytime I get a used vehicle in future, and diagnostics when purchasing a used vehicle. Great service will definitely use again.

Thanks for the review and the great feedback. A great time to use our service is just after purchasing a used vehicle as we can give it a health check, diagnostics and Engine Carbon Clean to get it checked over and running at it's best. Glad to help.
Great service

I got a slot to have my engine carbon cleaned after the engine management light came up on my Mini Cooper. Adrian gave me a good choice of slots to suit me and told me exactly what I needed to do before he arrived. He was very knowledgeable about what he was doing and explained everything to me as he was going along. I was having a lumpy idle issue which was cleared slightly by the clean, however Adrian advised me to go to a garage and the faults which were likely to be present. He has been very helpful even after he left, keeping in touch via Facebook. I'll definitely use his service again.

Great Service... via Whatsapp!!
Customer Service
I contacted them via message on whatsapp this very afternoon. I was describing my issue and asking if their service could help and how much it would be. My car would stall in 1st and 2nd gear, and really would just be a nightmare to drive at low speeds because of that; traffic and parking spaces are a nightmare. And this lovely Golf was made a not so great car because of that. Mpg went down and acceleration too. After asking what my issue was exactly and what has been done on it, the pre-diagnostic was that it sounded more like an air leak or fuel leak and that a carbon clean will not do much good. He could have left it at that, but following my questions, took the time to describe which sensor could be at fault, which test could be done, and how i could go about doing it. When leaving work tonight i indeed unplugged my MAF sensor following the Engine Carbon Clean East Midlands' recommendation, and that was it!!!! No more issue!! I'll get the part ordered from my garage and that's it. Sorted. Patience, great service and using his knowledge to go through the basics and this sorted a problem that £300 at my garage didnt solve. THROUGH WHATSAPP!! Can't recommend enough, just because of this great customer mindset. You can't always ask for results, but you can ask for dedication: you'll get it.

Thanks for the review - no matter how you get in touch we will try to help whenever we can. We will always try to work out whether a clean will benefit you and your vehicle and look to diagnose first to see whether it is a mechanical or electrical issue - which in this case it was. Look forward to seeing you in person at some point for a clean.
Excellent, again!!
Customer Service
This is the 3rd or 4th time I’ve used Adrian to carbon clean my various cars. Once again he did a great job and talked me through everything he was doing. I cannot recommend both the the process and Adrian himself!
