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

Second time using engine carbon clean and much like the first service was swift. Diagnostics carried out always helpful as other issues identified. After service car is far more responsive, less smoke and pulls well yet again. Recommend this for any car owner.

Jaguar XF 120k miles, since Adrian worked his magic improved throttle response, quieter drive and increased mpg, all facts. If you spend money on one thing to improve your car spend it on this gentleman and his process, you will not be disappointed and you will no doubt join the growing number of people who will recommend him and use him again!

This is the 4th time I have used Adrian, this time on My Hyundai i30N. I didn’t think the car could preform or sound better, but I was wrong. After his checks and amazing service (as always) the car now is More responsive, drives so much smoother and sounds AMAZING. Will see him again in another 20k. Top work as always thanks.👍

After a few issues with my car I was recommended Adrian by a family friend who has just had a carbon clean due to problems with his own car who now says its running better then ever before. gave Adrian a text and got my car a 2014 Mazda cx5 which was averaging around 40mpg but in recent months dropped to 33 mpg and was becoming sluggish booked in a few days later. He kept me updated when he would arrive to the minute when he arrived he was vey polite and got to work explaining everything in detail and how it all works showing me all old codes and live data whist it was having a carbon clean sending me them via text after he had finished I went for a spin and straight away it was more responsive and quieter on tick over and after a long run this morning my mpg has gone back up to 39 mpg cant thank Adrian enough super knowledgeable guy and very professional excellent service

Amazing work and a very nice guy also
Customer Service
Adrian was amazing from start to finish. Great communication from the start with prompt and friendly responses. Gave very clear and concise information and made sure that I had a full understanding of what to expect. Managed to get me booked in for the same week which was a bonus. On the day, Adrian was prompt and on time, talked me through the process and we even shared a tale or 2 whilst we was waiting for the cleaning process to complete. An absolute pleasure of a guy to have and a fantastic service. Engine is now a lot smoother and quieter, cold starts in the mornings are no longer an issue. Very impressed. Thank you Adrian and will be sure to recommend you to friends and family.

Just amazing
Customer Service
Adrian is a top guy, right from start to finish very professional, kept you fully informed and explained all the data he was looking at, no question was too silly and had a great chat about fuel qualities from various suppliers. Fast and efficient service no fuss, upon taking the car out after the clean it felt like a brand new car thanks Adrian see you next time.

Carbon clean great honest company.
Customer Service
Had a carbon clean today on a 2005 3 series bmw. Not just the carbon clean but a full diagnostic and if you are Interested they talk you through the process. Any faults. Clear what they can and give you a full break down of everything done. Very honest and openly explain what it will help with and what it won’t. Checked appointment the day before and was clear with all comms and even told me he was going to be 20 mins early. Very happy customer.

Engine Carbon Clean A Revelation.
Customer Service
Gave Adrian a call at Engine Carbon Clean, as my passat 1.9tdi was struggling to breathe due to a clogged engine, cheap supermarket fuel,and a faulty thermostat,resulting in limp mode. Towing a caravan,at 20 mph up hills,not good. Adrian turned up on time, and explained in great detail,what the service entailed, which was a comprehensive diagnostic, and hydrogen clean.while the cleaner was being fed into the engine, on startup the engine was noisy and shaky as I thought diesels were, but halfway through the cleaning,it was noticeably quieter.. Many faults on the diagnostic,but most I knew of,but a few I didn't,which explained a lot. On completion, can't believe the difference,like giving the car a lung transplant,it's that good! Adrian was very friendly and very professional, cannot ask for more A pleasure to recommend to everyone. 5 stars.😊
