With vehicle emissions standards getting tighter and tighter in the UK, Europe and around the world vehicle engine technology has had to rapidly changed to meet the emissions laws, systems have been invented such as EGR (Exhaust gas recirculation), EVAP (Evaporative Emissions Control System) and one you may have head of more recently is the DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter), all of these systems work very well at reducing the harmful gasses entering out atmosphere but unfortunately they have a nasty by-product, carbon build up is by-product of all these emissions control systems, we can't stop it so we have to treat it
Excessive carbon build causes at very best parts to block up and you will use more fuel and loose power, it will cause component failure and in very bad cases it can even cause turbo and or terminal engine failure.
This is an example of an EGR pipe, as you can see the gap for EGR gases in greatly reduced, this again will cause the incorrect fuel to air ratio in the cylinder
This is an intake valve from a modern petrol GDI engine, as you can see it's covered in carbon, this will reduce the amount of air that can be drawn in to the cylinder
Diesels and Petrol engines both suffer with carbon up especially the modern GDI (Gasoline Direct Injection) engines, all modern petrol engines are GDI and by way of its engine design a serious problem is the intake valves becoming so contaminated with carbon it can pretty much stop an engine running.
Carbon builds up everywhere in the modern engine, in the engine oil system itself, in the fuel systems, in the exhaust systems, in the emission control systems and the air take systems.
At millers Garage we now offer the complete carbon treatment service, we can clean or service all the above systems to either help prevent carbon building up in the future or to remove it after it's built up, we offer the following services:
In fact there is no system we can't remove the built up carbon or service to prevent the carbon build up in the first place
If you follow our carbon fighting advice you can avoid having to remove carbon or replacing failed components which can be costly, as part of your vehicle service routine we recommend the following:Every 12 months or 12,000 miles (every service)
