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

Extremely professional outfit.
Customer Service
A thoroughly professional outfit and immensely knowledgeable they explained the full carbon cleaning process in detail. Upon booking explained exactly what I should expect from this process and more importantly what the process cannot clean. Communication was excellent prior to arrival and throughout the process. Error codes were sent to me prior and post the clean and live data explained during the clean. I have already booked my second car in and would thoroughly recommend to anybody who is interested in getting their car carbon cleaned.

2nd time used this company, this time for for diagnosis..
Customer Service
Excellent communication from Adrian from initial enquiry to completion. Noticed my VW T5 wasn't running very well, called Adrian to come and diagnose, did a engine clean while he was here and brought up a few fault codes. Struggle finding a reputable garage, so now going to a few garages with what I already know needs doing is a lot easier to get prices for and saves a "surprise" bill at the end. Would highly recommend his service and will be using again in the near future for engine cleans on other vehicles. T5 running smoother already. 👌

Engine Carbon Clean
Customer Service
Adrian carried out a carbon clean on my car, the level of service that he offers is second to none. From being punctual on arrival, explaining fully the process that he takes the car through whilst carrying it out and explaining any issues that he finds. I would highly recommend his service to anyone looking for general maintenance, engine diagnostics or fault finding!

Carbon clean
Customer Service
Excellent service used twice now, put a new breath of life into two cars I have owned. Noticeable difference both immediately with an extra crispness to the response from the throttle and over time a noticeable improvement to fuel economy. Friendly service and great contact both before and after.

Expert carbon clean East Midlands.
Customer Service
Just had mine and my son’s Audi S3 carbon cleaned by Adrian, a very professional and knowledgeable guy. I have now had Adrian out on my previous Audi A4 3.0tdi and now twice on my S3 (first time was 9th Feb 2019). A full diagnostic before the clean, after the clean car feels smoother with a crisper response. I would highly recommend Adrian and the multi car discount was a bonus. Very happy satisfied customer again.

Professionalism at its best
Customer Service
From the very first contact with Adrian, his professionalism was evident. I received text alerts the day before arrival and kept updated of any time changes. It was a pleasure to have Adrian working on my car, his COVID awareness and prep were impeccable. Throughout the process, he was happy to share his findings and happily answered any questions I had. His knowledge of his trade was mind-blowing and clearly has pride in what he does. I would absolutely recommend this service but more importantly, I’d defiantly recommend Adrian.

Adrian from engine carbon clean done a great job.
Customer Service
10 / 10 would recommend to anyone, the difference in the car (e91 330d) is amazing. Adrian is a very friendly and knowledgeable guy and spends time to explain everything and go through fault codes stored in the cars ECU. He has such a passion for his job its nice to see and im already booking him in to come back to another car of mine in a month's time. Thanks again Adrian.

BMW 1 Series DPF diagnostic and clean
Customer Service
Needed a diagnostic for my BMW 1 series to resolve a DPF error code. Adrian came on time, was very professional and resolved the issue without the need for a full DPF clean, therefore saving me money which he could have quite easily scammed out of me, but didn’t. I also had a carbon clean performed on my Kia Cee’d too. Both cars seemed smoother, sharper with a few extra MPG’s. I would highly recommend.
