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.

    Excellent service from James. Fully explained the process and answered any questions comprehensively. In terms of the carbon clean - amazing difference to my car. Much more responsive, smoother acceleration, noticeably faster than before, quieter when running and MPG has improved by approx 15%. Highly recommend!

    Sent them a request late on Saturday evening, didn't think they would get back to me until the following Monday... but Paul replied really quick, booked it in for this morning! That's what you call efficiency! Had a stage 3 clean today and the car feels much smoother.

    Jay who came to sort the job was polite professional and friendly.

    Top marks all round, great service!

    I drove all the way from Newcastle to get my Audi TT 2.0TDi remapped and cleaned, this was because the price was much more competitive for both jobs combined. On the way home the car was how it should have been from the factory, it was smoother and pulled much better all the way through the rev range. I can't really say how much the cleaning did for certain but it certainly felt smoother and quieter but I will say I'm very happy with the service he provides and happy to recommend.

    I made a very last minute appointment with Matt who was very gracious to rearrange his afternoon for. He gave a great explanation of how it works and why. Despite some threadbare screws meaning he wasn't able to access the right part of the engine he quickly found an alternative so seemed to really knew his way around the engine.

    Only done a few miles since but the engine feels more alert and responsive already - looking forward to seeing how it benefits the fuel economy! Definitely worth doing.

    Cheers Matt.
