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

Carbon clean and diagnostic
Customer Service
Just had my car carbon cleaned by Adrian in preparation for the MOT, such a lovely knowledgeable chap. Straight to the point and went through every step of the process as he went through it. I've drove my car for around 30 minutes after the clean and instantly can tell a difference, its quieter, smoother, power delivery is a lot smoother. Well worth the money! For a 19 year old car, it had a couple of minor faults, none mechanical, and he cleaned the fault codes up for me. All in all 10/10 service, highly recommended!

Great service
Customer Service
Contacted Adrian online to book a engine carbon clean and a vehicle diagnostic, Adrian was quick to contact me , he explained about his services and how my vehicle would benefit from them, i told him i wished to book with him and within a few minutes i had a booking date and time. Adrian contacted me the day before the booking to confirm all was OK to go ahead the following day. On the day Adrian was at my address at exactly the time he had arranged, he was very good at explaining the vehicle diagnostics to me and during the clean he explained to me how the process works and also some of the ways the engine works in relation to the EGR and DPF, which to me was useful to know. The car is noticeably smoother to drive and quieter as a result. Adrian is friendly and professional and i would definitely recommend his services to others.

Thanks for the in depth review Philip. Always happy to spend the time showing you all the diagnostic live data and especially explaining how EGRs and DPFs work including all the important pre-requisites for regeneration. All important information for diesel owners that you are never told when purchasing. Glad to help you with your Volvo.

Customer Service
I arranged for Adrian to come and carbon clean my engine. His customer facing skills are excellent, he talked me through each stage of the process and was very informative. My engine is a lot "crisper" and I shall be interested to see my mpg in the future. I would highly recommend him.

Great professional service
Customer Service
Adrian attended this morning and completed a diagnostic check and engine carbon clean on both my cars. First of all, it was very easy to book an appointment with great communication. He contacted me the day before to check it was still convenient and a estimate time of arrival. Then a text in the morning of the day with a arrival time. Once here, Adrian went through the process and shown me everything and explained what he was doing and how it worked. There was some error codes I didn't know about and he offered advice on how to sort them. A very professional service with a competent technician who is clearly passionate about his work. I couldn't be happier with the results and the service received. I would highly recommend. Thank you Adrian.

Amazing product, even better service
Customer Service
Booked Adrian in to run diagnostics and a carbon clean on both of my vehicles after being impressed by other reviews. Despite being initially skeptical of the effectiveness they clean would have I wanted the diagnostic side as well as I had just purchased a 13 year old BMW 1 series which had an intermittent smoking issue. Our other vehicle was a diesel Picasso used on short journeys. Adrian was prompt, personable and extremely knowledgeable and thorough in his diagnostics. Long story short here I am a week later the BMW accelerates and runs almost like a new car rather than an old one and the clean on the Picasso has totally eliminated a whirring sound on idle. Finally best of all I have had no smoke at all since the clean. It’s far exceeded my expectations. I’m not going to claim I’m getting 10 mpg extra from a 13 year old petrol car as I’m not but it’s an absolute joy to drive now and so quiet. Will definitely recommend Adrian to friends and will use him again on my next used purchase
