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

Explained my concerns away.
Customer Service
Initially found them on a Facebook add after looking at articles and forums regarding carbon cleaning my car. After hearing vastly different reviews from people that had had it done with various companies, I decided to message a few to see what the science behind it was. Engine Carbon Clean East Midlands were the only one that explained what the process will and won’t clean and the science behind it. Very professional throughout the process, from the initial inquiry, right down to handing me the keys back. Adhering to social distancing at all times by disinfecting anything that I would have to come in contact with. The car itself is much smoother, there’s less judder in starting it up.

Ford Fiesta TDCi 1.4
Customer Service
Called mostly to get a full engine diagnostic done to make sure everything was okay. The engine clean has made a tired old Fiesta feel very responsive again. Pulling very well at 30 mph in 4th gear now, something it would not do before. More than satisfied. Very professional, very thorough, thank you.

Excellent friendly service
Customer Service
Cant fault the service from Adrian who was very pleasant and explained everything he was doing. I also learnt that I need to keep at least a quarter of a tank of fuel in the car otherwise the DPF doesn't get a cleaning cycle, something I was not aware off! Adrian did a full diagnostic check and with no faults found the clean was started. On my first drive after the clean I noticed that the engine was more responsive and smooth and the delay in power when changing gear had also gone, which I was very happy about. Definitely well worth getting done and I would highly recommend getting in touch with Adrian.

Adrian is very professional and knowledgeable. Arrived on time and explained exactly what was going on at any given moment during my appointment. He was very friendly and polite while giving his expert advice on my car including how to be as economical as possible in future. Can't thank him enough. Would recommend and will be a returning customer. Thanks.

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+++++

Customer Service
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.
