By removing carbon we can improve engine performance, reduce emissions, and reduce costs by increasing component lifespan.
TerraClean advance cleaning service removes most deposits from your engine, reducing your emissions, for a cleaner greener drive. The removal of carbon deposits significantly improves overall vehicle performance with improved drivability.
Firstly our system is not a “pour in”, we use a very highly refined fuel on which we run your engine by linking it to one of our specifically designed cleaning units. All petrol engines build up carbon deposits in combustion chambers, exhaust ports, catalytic converters (cat) and on lambda sensors over time and all petrol injection systems build up gum tars and varnishes which have a negative effect on your engines efficiency.
Petrol is made up of two core components, Aromatic fuel and Aliphatic fuel. These two components are necessary to allow the fuel to achieve an optimum combustion rate and also achieve optimum power.
Whilst the technology is different when we clean diesel engines, the principles of the process are the same, we are linking your engine to our patented TerraClean machine, created specifically for decarbonising Diesel Engines. The process involves running your engine on our unique fuel to clean both pre and importantly post-combustion, providing all the same benefits. The TerraClean system will clean through both Exhaust Gas Recirculation systems and Diesel Particle Filters, where fitted and providing there is adequate air flow. Where there is severely restricted flow there are services available to address the problems.
A diesel particulate filter (DPF) is a device which sits within a vehicle’s exhaust system and is designed to “capture” soot/diesel particles to reduce harmful emissions into our towns and cities. It became legal for vehicle manufacturers (VMs) to fit DPFs to all vehicles when “Euro 5” emissions standards came into force in 2009. DPFs self-clean through a process called “regeneration”, this happens under certain diving conditions and the particles are emitted leaving only a small ash residue. Sensors in the DPF unit communicate with the vehicles central computer (ECU) to determine when to clean.
EGR Valves can often cause your engine management light to illuminate. The problem can be caused by EGR failure, blockages or any number of reasons. Correct diagnosis is extremely important. If the EGR needs cleaning we have patented TerraClean technology that is effective in 99% of cases.

In the interest of the health of our staff, customers and recognising the need for a national effort to slow the spread of coronavirus we have taken the difficult decision to close our garages for the next few weeks.
The government as announced that MOTs for the time being (starting Monday 30th March) can be deferred for 6 months. More information on gov.uk
We recognise however that we have a civic duty to help where we can. As such will have staff on call through this period to come in and deal with emergencies and breakdowns for:
We hope to reopen at the end of April, or sooner if the government advice changes.
