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

Excellent service
Customer Service
I booked my car in with Adrian for a preventative maintenance clean as the car had no running issues. Adrian was very knowledgeable and engaging, clearly knowing knowing his stuff. The car now has noticing more lower down torque and is quieter. Well worth having done. (2013 330D F31 94,500 miles)

Great service and very professional
Customer Service
Could not recommend this service any more if I tried! Arrived on time talked me through the whole process and explained and answer every question I had. The difference in the car is very noticeable and would recommend to anyone who asks and anyone who doesn’t ask!

Professional, punctual and polite service.
Customer Service
Adrian arrived earlier than expected and was very thorough with the explanations as to how the carbon clean worked. He was happy to field questions and explained his answers clearly. The work carried out was done in a professional manner and the results are very impressive, with a car that is much smoother to drive, much smoother through the gears and that runs much quieter. I would highly recommend Adrian and will be using his again when the time comes.

2012 Mondeo clean.
Customer Service
I booked Adrian after reading the excellent reviews. He came exactly at the time he said he would. I found him very knowledgeable and he talked me through the whole procedure. At the time my car was suffering from an undiagnosed vibration which he said probably wouldn't be cured by a clean. He was very upfront about this but I had the full clean anyway. After the vibration was sorted by the purchase of a new clutch it is only now I can feel the benifit, the car drives lovely and smooth and the fuel consumption has improved to, having started using V power diesel. This combination of the clean and top grade fuel is definitely worth paying for. Thanks Adrian.

Thanks for the review Richard - that flywheel definitely needed changing. Great to hear you are getting nearly 100 miles more per tank after the clean and a change of fuel - glad to help you with your Mondeo.

Although not having any major issues. Adrian checked over my vehicle and did the ECC. The car is driving much better and is a lot more quieter in idle the before. Would definitely recommend the services as Adrian is very knowledgeable and passionate about what he does. I would use again.

Adrian is a top bloke, provides a great service
Customer Service
I initially had Adrian out to my BMW 320D for a dpf issue, I was enquiring about a dpf clean. Adrian came and thankfully he would rather try and diagnose the root cause of the problem before selling me a dpf clean that won’t rectify the main issue itself and would re occur within months. After a live diagnostic Adrian diagnosed 2 faulty thermostats and I had 3 glow plugs down. The car wouldn’t regen because of the issues with the above items. I got the parts and fixed the vehicle myself and noticed a huge improvement, and the car did a regen by itself, I had Adrian out again 6 days later to do an engine clean for me and double check the issues were resolved. He talked me through the whole process and I was fully informed what was happening throughout. after the clean I did a 45 minute test drive and I instantly noticed improved throttle response, and smoother power delivery, after my drive I can safely say my fuel economy is up and I’m very happy with the results, I’d recommend Adrian from ECC to anyone

Thanks for the detailed review Curtis - really appreciate it. Yes, our aim is always to help in the best way possible as in this case a DPF clean would have been a waste of your money (as it wasn't blocked). Most of the time correct diagnosis and replacement of faulty components is enough to resurrect a DPF issue if caught early enough. Once fixed and regenerated then an Engine Carbon Clean is normally sufficient to get the source of the dirt (engine) cleaned up Glad to help and will see you soon for the other vehicle.
Another excellent service
Customer Service
Have had Adrian round to do both of my cars, the service is second to none, turns up on time explains what he’s going to do, gets on with it, doesn’t mind me asking lots of questions and most important of all... after he’s done the clean my car runs better than ever, increased mpg, increased response, just feels like a better drive, will definitely be using Engine Carbon Clean East Midlands - F5ECC again and would have no hesitation in recommending them to friends or family.

Wow what a difference!
Customer Service
Not only quieter but smoother acceleration and no more drastic drop in revs and fear of stalling when braking. My old 1993 Isuzu Bighorn 3.1 UD Auto feels and sounds like new car. Even the ride fields better. Many thanks Andy. I'll be back with other cars.
