The DPF specialist team has seen increasing issues with sticking inlet valves on petrol engines, therefore, have seen an increased demand for carbon Cleaning petrol engines. In conclusion, carbon build-up damages engine components. The damage occurs to EGR valves, DPFs, turbos, inlet manifold and injectors. In addition to the damage, the repair bill can end up costing thousands of pounds very easily. Carbon build-up is also a common cause for MOT failures due to the emissions failing.

The diagram above shows how the build-up of contamination occurs resulting in poor performance and fault codes.
Carbon build up issues:
- Contaminated Injector
- High cylinder Pressure
- Increased Carbon Deposits
- Increased blow passed piston rings
- High crankcase pressure
- Oil seepage passed valve stem oil seals.
- Evaporation of base oil creating sticky varnish on the inlet valve
- Return of EGR gas, large carbon deposits stick to the valve.
- Valve stick
- Pinking/detonation of oil on the piston crown
For example, every 100 gallons of petrol used, the following contaminants are produced:
- Carbon Soot ~2lbs
- Nitrous and Sulphuric Acid ~40z
- Hydrochloric Acid ~20z
- Unburnt Petrol ~10gal
- Water Vapour ~120gal
Our solution carbon cleaning petrol engines
In this paragraph, I’m going to discuss a few reasons why carbon cleaning is important to the engine. Firstly, the only way to truly clean the carbon build is by actually doing a Carbon clean. There are, however, some instances where the carbon is too stubborn to remove. Thirdly, and most importantly, it is important that we carry out a full diagnostic test on the vehicle. Moreover, the underlying issues need to be resolved. In conclusion, we will use a process of elimination to get to the underlying issues.
We recommend a Hydrogen carbon clean. In collaboration with Klén Technology, we now offer Carbon cleaning with the latest technology from Klén.
Based on the Oxy-hydrogen engine carbon clean method, our Technical Director has found this to be the most effective and controlled method to reduce and in many cases remove significant carbon build-up. After testing many other machines Klèn have been by far the most effective
The system fundamentally leverages an HHO generator that generates gas. This is injected through the air intake pipe, via controlled and precise methods by our fully trained engineers, to help eliminate the carbon.
Carbon cleaning can restore lost performance and help your vehicle pass the emissions component of its MOT test, therefore, as a result, our professional team of technicians offer a carbon cleaning service.
Therefore, this could help to make your vehicle run more effectively and cost-efficiently, therefore, this also helps to protect the environment.
