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

Recommended for piece of mind
Customer Service
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.

Another excellent Carbon Clean by Adrian.
Customer Service
Had my 3rd car looked after by the very Professional Adrian. Its now standard practice for me when changing car! Every time Adrian has been more than helpful and professional in arranging a booking that suits my needs. This time round it was my recently purchased 320d, which sounded so very much like a tractor. After Adrian worked his magic, its now running smoothly and picking up well. I also gained a few MPG, even with my heavier right foot now its so much nicer to drive! Thanks Adrian, See you with my next car!

A fantastic service from ECC
Customer Service
Contacted Adrian on Wednesday (29 May), and he was working on my Mercedes C220 Coupe AMG sport today. The difference in the performance, acceleration and smoothness is just amazing. Adrian is a very nice chap who demonstrated and explained the cleaning system throughout the process and this allayed any concerns I'd previously had. Overall, great value with exceptional results. Highly recommend ECC.

Thanks for the review Paul - was a pleasure meeting you and helping you with your lovely Mercedes.
Excellent service
Adrian arrived on time, went through the process. Ran full diagnostic check, only one error found. One hour later the car was running better than before the carbon clean. Money well spent. I would not hesitate to recommend Adrian's services.

Another brilliant job
Customer Service
Cheers for coming out at short notice Adrian. Top professional job as always . This is my 3rd time using Adrian and it’s always been a top experience. This time on a newly purchased car which the engine ran sweet already but wanted a clean as a preventative measure and a full diagnostic to see if any codes or issues on the car. All historic codes where wiped and no new ones popped up and car is running like a dream and a little more torque at low revs. Top job and look forward to the next time

Excellent work
Customer Service
Adrian attended to carry out carbon clean after contacting him regarding the benefits of a clean and he was honest up front and in no way pushing for my business he explained everything in detail and all expectations, had my Audi A1 done and can honestly say runs smoother and more responsive over the moon
