Carbon Cleaning in Plymouth Meeting, PA

Today’s modern vehicle engines use GDI, or Gasoline Direct Injection, when it comes to burning fuel during the combustion process. During this process, sooty exhaust gases are created, and while most of the soot from this is filtered out, carbon build ups occur over time within the engine and exhaust system.

GDI involves fuel being directly injected into the combustion chamber rather than having to pass over many parts. While the GDI process has improved overall efficiency and engine performance, it does have a tendency to clog up over time. Here at German Auto Specialists, we offer a carbon cleaning service that removes sooty carbon deposits from inside your car’s engine to enhance overall performance and fuel efficiency.

A carbon cleaning service at our shop will:

  • Remove carbon buildup from your engine
  • Restores fuel efficiency and engine performance
  • Prevent carbon buildup on the catalytic converter and EGR

Carbon deposits happen just with everyday use of your vehicle. It happens gradually, and typically poor engine performance will be a telling sign that you are due for this decarbonizing service. Deposits can form quickly, so we recommend an inspection of the GDI at every major service.

Carbon deposits not only hinder your car’s operation, but can also lead to additional issues. Carbon deposits can actually get into the engine’s cylinder, jamming piston rings. This leads to your engine burning oil that leaks through the piston rings, which can quickly deplete your car’s oil supply much sooner before your next oil change. This can lead to engine damage over time.

At German Auto Specialists, we service a variety of European makes including Porsche, Audi, Mercedes, BMW, MINI, Volkswagen, Range Rover/Land Rover, Bentley, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, and Volvo. In order to perform our carbon cleaning service, our passionate and heavily certified technicians utilize state-of-the-art equipment and tools specifically designed for your European vehicle to ensure the highest quality of service available.
