CarbonCarbon is a by-product of any combustion process. As your engine burns fuel, either diesel or petrol, carbon builds up in the intake manifolds and exhaust manifolds, as well as in the cylinders.
VAG engines, in particular, have an Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) valve, which recycles a portion of the exhaust gases back into the cylinders to be re-burned. While this significantly reduces the emissions released into the atmosphere; it also leads to a large build-up of carbon in the engine itself.
As this carbon builds, your acceleration slows, there may be rough idling, or severe engine knocking. At VW Village, we make sure your engine is running as clean as possible to maintain the engine's performance and longevity. We offer:
- Intake Manifold and EGR removal and cleaning
- Onboard intake/injector cleaning.
We revive components back to near new condition with our top of the range cleaning baths and ultrasonic cleaners. As you can see below, the results speak for themselves.
