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

Engine Carbon Clean and diagnostic check.
Customer Service
What can I say about the service I received from Adrian apart from excellent in every way. Adrian shuffled about his appointments for the day to fit me in first thing at short notice which was greatly appreciated. Very friendly, knowledgeable and explained the whole procedure in full as he went along. After the diagnostic check it was recommended I fit a new thermostat and egr bypass valve at some time as per fault codes. On with the carbon clean itself and although I thought the car, 2.2td Mitsubishi Outlander 2008 (88k) was running ok before, the difference afterwards was very noticeable. The engine ran quietly and smoothly, went through the rev range quickly with no hesitations and the slight vibration on tickover had gone completely. Just after Adrian had left we drove up to Scarborough from Derby and didn't even use a quarter of a tank of fuel even though we were loaded down with gear. I even had to check the rev counter a couple of times at traffic lights to make sure it hadn't cut out it was that quiet. Professional, friendly service from start to finish and I can't recommend this service enough. I will definitely be seeing Adrian again and I definitely can't believe the difference this has made to the car. It feels like new! Thanks Adrian. A+++++

Had an issue on my BMW that I’d been messed about with at all including main dealer. Dealer would have had me pay £3300 for a new Dpf and that was without looking at or running any diagnostics on my car. I’d followed this guy on Facebook for a while seen so many good reviews so made contact. I was told there were no promises that a diagnostic would definitely give us a solution but would see what was found. Well after arrival and meet and greets straight down to diagnostic, told me that my car was regenerating and had done only 100 odd miles ago. Pressures were all fine and the alarm that appeared every day on idrive was just a mileage limited. Reset and cleared and all good, great service trustworthy advice, it’s been a week since this was done and it’s a god send no more alarms on the dash and mot passed yesterday with no advisories, I recommend this service.

Engine clean and diagnostics
Customer Service
Adrian was superb he diagnosed every aspect of my engine and went through it in detail. My BMW E46 M3 only had one fault with an exhaust sensor. When the clean was done it sounded better than before and before was good I have noticed significant improvement. To say the least Adrian is one of the most knowledgeable people I have met. He could tell that it was running better by just listening to the exhaust note. Thank you Adrian, certainly use your expertise again. 5 Star in every way.

Turbo issues - vehicle going into limp mode on heavy acceleration.
Customer Service
Contacted Adrian when my car developed an issue with the turbo that I suspected was down to carbon build up. Booked a clean and Adrian turned up on time, slightly early in fact. He explained the procedure, and the theory behind it, in some detail. I appreciated this because I had been a bit sceptical beforehand. He was also open and honest about the procedure, explaining that it might not cure my turbo issue. Although I did appreciate this before making the booking, it was nevertheless a refreshingly honest appraisal. Both before and during the clean a comprehensive diagnostic check was carried out. Thankfully there were no major issues. Adrian quickly identified an issue with the thermostat which was causing the engine to run cool. He explained why this could be an issue for me. Luckily the engine temp was high enough for the clean to continue. So, was it all worth it? Absolutely. The vehicle accelerates well and very smoothly. Most importantly the turbo behaved itself, and I gave it some welly, let me tell you!! As I had the clean carried out today, I cannot yet comment on whether it has affected my fuel consumption. I suspect that this will increase in line with the increased performance of the vehicle and particularly after I have my thermostat replaced. If you believe you vehicle might benefit from this procedure, give Adrian a call. You won't be disappointed.

Thanks for the review Paul - was a pleasure meeting you and so glad we could help you with your sticking turbo issue. A new thermostat should help you get it running nice and economical again.
First class service
Customer Service
Adrian was fantastic, was easy to book, he let me know when he was on his way to me and identified a possible fault that I was unaware of. The car now has better MPG and I am very happy with the work carried out. Would recommend.

Second time using Adrian, absolute professional in his field and knowledge is exceptional. Booked in 3 of my mates cars aswell as my own to be Carbon cleaned. Will only speak for my own, fantastic results from the clean with a smoother engine and better MPG plus with the diagnostics check I now have a code I can go and get sorted which I wasn't aware of.

Carbon clean

Arrived on time, Adrian is a very pleasant guy, got to work straight away explain everything what he was going to and what it would do to help my car and did diagnosis on car to find any faults and if there any. I had 3 faults but nothing serious. He explained what i needed to do to sort them out. Carbon clean has seriously helped my cars tick over and acceleration. Great communication from start to finish, very helpful man would recommend, 5 stars all round, many thanks to Adrian.
