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: Volvo V60
Customer Service
So right from the original contact Adrian was professional, knowledgeable and honest and provided me with in-depth information about why I wouldn't need one of the services I asked him to quote for (even though this would of earned him more money), this impressed me as several other companies had just provided me with a quote without one of them saying perhaps I don't need the service. Following this I booked in for an Engine Carbon Clean on my Volvo V60 with Adrian who kept me informed of ETA the night before and on the day and was extremely punctual (even arriving early but only after checking it was okay to do). Throughout the procedure Adrian was more than happy to answer my question at explain to me what he was doing at each stage. After the clean, my engine was notable running quieter. I took it for a test drive after Adrian left and am very happy with the result, the car feels smoother to drive, feeling more responsive through the revs. Could not recommend Adrian highly enough, very knowledgeable, very professional and a genuinely nice guy.

Amazing service 10/10
Customer Service
Engine Carbon Clean responded promptly to my initial enquiry allowing me to have the work completed on my car within days. I have a 2007 BMW 525d. They arrived bang on time and completed work on my car to a professional standard. My car hadn’t completed a successful DPF regeneration in over 5000 miles which was due to a faulty sensor. After the engine clean, I have since replaced the sensor. I have noticed my car is undoubtably smoother on startup and performance on these colder days thanks to the clean. Would high recommend.

Great job and Informative
Customer Service
Had my Audi's engine carbon cleaned by Adrian today. Very informative, honest and professional throughout, the car feels smoother through the full rev-range and the hesitation under throttle has gone. Well worth the money.

Customer Service
Think I have used Adrian services at Engine Carbon Clean five times now on different cars. Excellent service as per the norm. Proof is in the pudding, returning customers this many times tells you something. Just had it done as general maintenance @ 24,000 miles & yes you can feel the difference. Been told to keep this car Adrian, so you will not see me again till 50,000, but for sure you will be seeing me & my car again. Big thank you as always 👍

I have had Adrian out before for carbon cleans but yesterday I had him out to clean my DPF as I have been struggling getting it to regenerate. Adrian is full of knowledge and always tells you straight. He sorted my DPF out as it had been in limp mode for a few weeks now. Great service great price great guy will definitely be going back.

Another Visit from the Master at F5ECC
Customer Service
Booked Adrian in again for a Carbon Clean and this time on my newly purchased VW Passat 2.0 TDI and also an issue with my Step sons Audi A3 2.0 TDI which requires a DPF clean. Vw on the inspection through the Diagnostic machine everything was running sweet, after the Carbon Clean there is an Instantly noticeable difference on the throttle response and a lot smoother now. The Audi has been a nightmare for a couple of months, This had been to a couple of garages with the car in limp mode and wouldn’t re-generate, on inspection he was informed that it required a DPF Sensor changing , this didn’t work , then he was informed it require a Turbo Actuator , didn’t work and then apparently it required a lambda sensor. The issue was still there, A phone call to Adrian and instantly with an answer to why it won’t re-generate is because the issue had not been diagnosed early enough and therefor the DPF was clogged up. On his Diagnostic machine the back pressure was 100 ,and the worst he had experienced on a Vag Engine , A further Code saying high Ash content, It wasn’t looking good but Adrain said he was confident he could resolve the issues , after a DPF clean the back pressure dropped to 10 from 100 and it was a success , The car Re-Generated and is running really well now. Absolute Gentleman has always and very professional with a huge amount of knowledge. Another fantastic Job and thank you… Richard

The best by miles
Customer Service
Audi A5 3.0 tdi Quattro First used ECC East Mids back in May for an engine clean and then again in September for a DPF clean, Adrian is the ultimate professional, calls/texts in advance of appointments with eta, full diagnostic scan (before and after cleans sent to your phone) takes the time to fully explain what everything means and what impact various sensors/parts have to influence the reason for needing a DPF or engine clean, I myself now have more of an understanding of how a diesel engine should be working its best and how to keep it that way! Car runs amazing now. Will personally be using again in the future and have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Adrian and his business, 5 stars are not enough for this gem of a service

Audi A4 Carbon Clean
Customer Service
Adrian came to carbon clean my Audi A4 and did a superb job. Diagnosed a faulty thermostat for me which was very unknowingly causing me problems. He’s very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Arrived on time and was very efficient. Very happy to recommend

Professional service
Customer Service
Having recently purchased a Ford Kuga I had done some motorway miles and noticed it to be unresponsive and struggling in higher gears. I booked a diagnostic appointment through messenger on Facebook and was rewarded with a very professional response from Adrian. The appointment was in the late afternoon and I was kept informed of the arrival time during the day. A full diagnosis and engine clean was performed and a dpf pressure sensor issue was found. Immediately upon my first drive after the work on the car I found a increase in responsiveness and a improvement in mpg. Having now replaced the sensor I’m looking forward to many miles of trouble free motoring. From start to finish I found Adrians company very professional and courteous. If your having car problems I would recommend you get in contact. Thanks for your help with my car
