A lot of things can cause your car to lose power, but the main culprit is carbon deposit inside your engine. These deposits rob your vehicle of power and fuel efficiency, increase oil consumption and toxic emissions, and in some cases, can prematurely destroy your car’s engine.
Carbon buildups occur as the fuel burns in your car. Just like a log burning in a fire deposits soot and grime on the inside of a chimney, with time, carbon deposits build up inside your car’s engine, making it inefficient. If your car is beginning to show any of the symptoms mentioned above, you need to do more than switch to better oil and premium fuel. You’ll need to get the deposits removed and the engine cleaned.
Engine decarbonisation or air intake decarbonisation is the process of cleaning out carbon deposits from the inside of a vehicle’s engine. Usually, the best time to decarbonise an engine is after it has done about 50,000km.
