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

A fantastic service from ECC
Customer Service
Contacted Adrian on Wednesday (29 May), and he was working on my Mercedes C220 Coupe AMG sport today. The difference in the performance, acceleration and smoothness is just amazing. Adrian is a very nice chap who demonstrated and explained the cleaning system throughout the process and this allayed any concerns I'd previously had. Overall, great value with exceptional results. Highly recommend ECC.

Thanks for the review Paul - was a pleasure meeting you and helping you with your lovely Mercedes.
Excellent service
Adrian arrived on time, went through the process. Ran full diagnostic check, only one error found. One hour later the car was running better than before the carbon clean. Money well spent. I would not hesitate to recommend Adrian's services.

Thanks for the review and the recommendation - always glad to help.
Another brilliant job
Customer Service
Cheers for coming out at short notice Adrian. Top professional job as always . This is my 3rd time using Adrian and it’s always been a top experience. This time on a newly purchased car which the engine ran sweet already but wanted a clean as a preventative measure and a full diagnostic to see if any codes or issues on the car. All historic codes where wiped and no new ones popped up and car is running like a dream and a little more torque at low revs. Top job and look forward to the next time

Adrian attended to carry out carbon clean after contacting him regarding the benefits of a clean and he was honest up front and in no way pushing for my business he explained everything in detail and all expectations, had my Audi A1 done and can honestly say runs smoother and more responsive over the moon

Engine Carbon Clean
Customer Service
Absolutely fantastic service. ECC Adrian came out to look at my Audi A3 i had a issue with my EGR Valve & wasn,t sure if any other problems was showing up. So for a peace of mind i thought better to get a 2nd opinion & get it checkout rather than going to the garage paying big money & not knowing that was the proper fault that needed to be replace. Anyway Adrian explained in great detail on what the test was showing on is pad he made me feel more relax. If anybody as got uncertain issue,s with there car or thinking on buying a car look no further than ECC worth getting your car fully check out for a fee of £99 & Adrian comes out to you. Brilliant Service but most of all reassurance & puts any doubt you may have. Best to get a honest 2nd opinion & peach of mind.

Excellent Service
Customer Service
Adrian has now carbon cleaned two vehicles for me in the past and I had no problem recommending His service to a Friend who had a 2011 Nissan Xtrail which was running a little "lumpy". After the clean my Friend was over the moon with the all around service and as a result the engine was clearly running much smoother. Adrian goes great lengths to fully explain the service and is more than happy to offer advice going forward with engine maintenance etc Excellent service and great communication from start to finish.

My Audi S5 is now better than ever
Customer Service
Some feedback from my drive post carbon cleaning. Although my car showed no serious issues, and this was more a preventative step for me, there were a number of noticeable improvements. The pick up from low rpm now feels much more linear and predictable, and at idle the S5 is now rock steady without any trace of hunting. Low gear up-changes also seem more fluid. Infact, the driving experience seems more buttery smooth all round. Thanks to Adrian for a great job and the heads-up on those mods and services which can allow us all to preserve these dwindling examples of normally aspirated V8 fun. Now, if I can just convince HMG to stop road taxing me into the poor house life will be perfect. Across the road has kindly offered to take the S5 out for a second opinion. An act of selfless sacrifice that I gently declined.

Thank you for the review David - always a pleasure working on an Audi V8. Lovely to meet you and help you with your S5.
Great result
Customer Service
I thought my 2005 Land Cruiser was running quite well, so at 111000 miles decided on an engine clean to fit in with its up coming service. Adrian from east midland engine carbon clean arrived dead on time this morning and got started straight off, explaining the process as he worked, doing a full diagnostics check. He was happy to answer my questions and show me how his machine produced the hydrogen and oxygen used in the process and explained how it broke down and cleaned out the carbon. After he left I took it for a test drive, I was very pleased by the difference, smoother and quieter. A great result from a real professional guy, many thanks.

Adrian came to give my Vauxhall astra 1.4 Turbo a car on clean today! He was very knowledgeable and friendly. He knew his stuff and was a very pleasant chappy also! Showed me how the carbon is cleaned via a video demonstration. Took me through the results of my vehicle diagnostics report he taken on the car and emailed my report also. Explained all that was needed. I can feel the results of the clean and I'm impressed with the overall service! Hes mobile to! 5* service. Would recommend to anybody!

Professional and great communicator
Customer Service
Fantastic service and very well presented. A1 communications from an instant response to my enquiry late on a Saturday night right through to an eta from the sat nav on the day. Exceptionally professional and informative through out with a full diagnostic before and after and he enjoyed showing (and I seeing) the setup and how it works. 5*
