What is engine carbon cleaning

The old fashioned way of removing carbon deposits from an engine is the equivalent to open heart surgery. It entails physically opening up the engine, using chemicals to loosen the carbon then scraping it away and removing it – an extremely laborious task (6-8 hours for a V8 engine) that is both costly and no efficient. Worst still generally a mechanic will only remove the carbon in and around the manifold, intake valves, and cylinder heads. However, much of the carbon deposits build-up later in the engine system e.g. around the EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation system and turbo and exhaust systems which also requires cleaning to fully restore your engine.

Having spent many years in development PowerSystem of Lille, France launched the ground-breaking CarbonCleaning™ Hydrogen technology in 2011. This unique advanced technology pumps and pulses hydrogen through the air intake system burning away the carbon deposits that prevent your engine from running smoothly. This remarkable system is suitable for any petrol, diesel or hybrid engine and has a proven ability to quickly and safely removing carbon build-up deposits from the whole engine system in just 30-45 minutes, the effects are immediate.

    Just had James out to do two of my work vehicles - Mercedes sprinter & Toyota hilux.
    Can see a massive difference already. James was kind enough to explain the whole process and answer any question. Turned up on time, polite and great communication leading up to our meet. Top class, will definitely use again. �

    I believe myself to be the worlds biggest sceptic. I don't suffer fools or gimmickry easily and was apprehensive when a mechanic friend suggested having my 97 fiat ducato 2.5 td motorhome carbon cleaned.
    It doesn't get used that often, although I start it regularly.
    It smoked a lot on start up and was taking longer to clear.
    After a 30 min stage one carbon clean the difference was mega!
    I must of been impressed I had the wife's 08 Ford S Max 2.0 tdci done as well.
    I would whole heartedly recommend UKCC Auto Techs .
    And a big thanks to Red for making the magic happen.

    Highly recommend, I’ve got a 07 plate transit that has been decreasing in power and more and more smoke coming from it the past few weeks. So decided to give these guys a call he came out Friday evening, took about 45mins the difference in my van now is night and day the power it now has and the smoke from the exhaust is gone thanks a lot G

    Had my Octavia Vrs done recently, I was a sceptical customer not sure about getting the clean done at first, anyway the first thing I noticed was the engine was quieter when idling. Second thing was the turbo spool was smoother and the turbo chatter had disappeared. As for performance I cant say for sure if it's more responsive or not but it definitely has less turbo lag between 4th 5th and 6th gears.

    Jag was under powered and rough tick over. Once done I took it out and it was completely different chalk and cheese. Cristian was prompt did his work very professionally. Will be booking again next year. Excellent

    I would recommend James in a heartbeat. He is extremely knowledgeable and fixed my DPF issues on my Volvo V50 in less time than just one of the many visits I made to other garages in the Borders who didn't have a clue how to resolve the problem. James arrived exactly when he said he would, fixed my car and charged me less than half what I had been told to expect by so-called experts. James really knows his stuff and I am delighted with the excellent service James provided. He does what he says he will when he says he will do it and I was delighted with the costs of his service. What more can you ask. My V50 is running like a dream again all thanks to James.

    Just had my BMW 1 series stage 1 done today and honestly feel an incredible difference. At first I was curious whether or not to get it done but so glad I did and was at such a good price. James explained everything to me before and after it and came out a drive with me to see the difference afterwards which was great. I can’t complain. I mainly feel a difference going from the 4th gear and up, the car seems to want to keep climbing! Anyone wondering it’s a 1 series 120d 2.0l diesel which went from 184- 220 bhp. Will definitely pass on friends and family to this guy and hopefully use his carbon cleaning service at some point. Fantastic service! Thanks James.
