This week just keeps getting better as we have been awarded the ability to run Carbon Clean and DPF Clean here in Hull. There are other sites here which do it, but not both on the same site. We are over the moon to be able to offer this to our customers.
Have a look through and see what it can do for you and your car.
How it works
The first system is the Engine Carbon Clean, which works by using regular tap water to create hydrogen and oxygen which is passed through the air intake of the engine and out through the exhaust system as a gas. This picks up the carbon as it works its way through which would otherwise lead to poor performance, degrading parts and even damaged parts eventually.
It’s simple and safe which means nothing needs to be dismantled to clear it and doesn’t use any harmful chemicals products. It is recommended by Carbon Clean to use it when you have a service done on a yearly basis.
DPF Cleaning Service
Our fully trained team offer a bespoke DPF cleaning service to ensure it is operating at an efficient and optimal level
A DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) is designed to capture excess soot from your diesel exhaust. As long as all parts and sensors are functional, a DPF filter will attempt to clean itself by re-generating itself under particular conditions. Usually at a certain temperature when doing long journeys.
If you use your car for short journeys you are not allowing the temperature to reach what is required to do a self clean which causes the DPF to clog up with soot. This can then effect the power and performance of the engine and reduce fuel efficiency. In some cases it has been known to clog up that much that the back pressure causes the engine to stop running or even starting.
We will only recommend this action after doing a full diagnostic to ensure this is caused by the DPF and that we can proceed with a clean and flush.
In some circumstances we will recommend an engine clean aswell to ensure your vehicle is running at its absolute best. This is because if the engine is not clean, then the DPF will fill up quickly again and cause further issues.
