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

Incredible Service
Customer Service
I booked my car in with Adrian for a diagnostic and Carbon Clean due to an upcoming MOT and I was concerned especially due to the new MOT regulations. Adrian was most helpful and got me booked in within a matter of days, keeping me informed and up to date. Adrian arrived exactly on time and began work right away, it’s clear from talking with Adrian that he is very knowledgeable and passionate about his work. Adrian began by running a diagnostic on my vehicle taking the time to go through the results with me in a way that I could understand, taking the time to answer any questions I had. Adrian then began the carbon clean process and the results are just incredible, the vehicle no longer smokes under acceleration, the car adsolutely glides now and the engine is drastically quieter. All my worries with regards to the upcoming MOT have now gone, thanks to the amazing service and professionalism from Adrian. Thanks again!

Contacted Adrian about a PDF clean on my 2008 Seat Leon after it became too clogged to regenerate. Adrian's communication was second to none, contacting me via text, even when he was away on holiday for a few days. As soon as he was back, he fitted me in, diagnosing a turbo boost pressure sensor fault, as well as a dpf fault. He talked me through all of the diagnosed data, explaining clearly what it showed. He could have cleaned the dpf there and then and taken my money, but advised me to take it to a garage he recommended to have the turbo issue resolved first, so that the dpf didn't become clogged again, resulting in it need to be cleaned a second time. Once the car was at the garage, he then organised with them for an on site clean of the dpf, and I also had him do the engine at the same time. The result is a car that has never been so responsive. Can't thank him or recommend him highly enough. Will definitely be using myself again and have already recommended his services to friends.

Had Adrian round to have a look at my Mercedes CLC220 CDI as I noticed a drop in power and response and the engine was starting to get louder. He was a really nice guy, prompt and explained all diagnostics clearly, had a few fault codes which again were explained fully. End product was way better than I expected, smoother, quieter and drives so much better now, would recommend 100% and will be using again if the need arises.

Great service
Customer Service
After following carbon cleaning for over two years, originally thinking it was just a money making gimmick. We had Adrian over to run a carbon clean on our Audi S3 and my Ford Transit. He ran diagnostics on both vehicles before cleaning. The Transit came up with an idle fault. Within 10 minutes Adrian had emailed me the code with information on what it was and how to fix it. Its been 3 weeks since the clean. The Audi has lost its annoying boomy exhaust sound and has got its raspyness back. Checked the trip computer mpg has risen from 19mpg to 24mpg on town driving. Very happy with the service. Adrian was very helpfull, informative and certainly knows his engines.

Excellent Service

After following Engine Carbon Clean for a while now I decided to get Adrian out to our Skoda Octavia and BMW 330d. He was very knowledgeable and provided a great service. The results are fantastic with the BMW driving like a new car, no more smoke, better acceleration and much quieter. The results are just as good on the Skoda. Would recommend Adrian to anyone well worth the money.

Amazing work, car feels like new!
Customer Service
Adrian is a very knowledgeable chap and true professional! My Audi A3 has literally never run better than it now does. It's much quieter and smoother to drive yet when you put your foot down it really goes and the throttle feels more responsive generally. Next thing on the list is to fix the clutch and it will be running perfectly.

Brilliant job!
Customer Service
About 7 months ago I noticed that my Audi’s MPG was deteriorating. After several diagnostic tests, including at Audi, I was told they could find nothing wrong with my car. I knew this wasn’t the case as I was getting nearly 200 miles less than I should out of a tank of fuel! We tried numerous things to fix the issue and have spent goodness knows how much money on fuel and fixes. Well, Adrian came out this morning after managing to fit me in before I was due to drive to Yorkshire (a costly journey in my car!) He was really lovely and clearly knew his stuff. He only had to listen to the engine to know it was sooty. Afterwards, I took my car for a 35 mile round trip and averaged nearly 53 mpg- I was struggling to get near 40mpg previously! A fantastic improvement! Thank you so much for ending 7 months of stress and expense. If only I’d been told to do it sooner!
