Combustion engines have come a long way since they were invented over a hundred years ago. Of all the innovations introduced since then, one of the best is the fairly recent creation of direct fuel injection: it gives you Increased Power and Efficiency where you need it most.
With great power, though, comes great vehicle carbon build-up?
In these engines, the fuel is directly injected into the combustion chamber of each individual cylinder, and no longer passes through the intake valves – and no longer keeps them clean through constant contact. This means that over time, deposits of carbonised fuel and oil build up both on the intake tract and its valves. This can reduce efficiency, oil life, and throttle response, as well as causing rough idling or vibrations. And the worst part? This process cannot be prevented!
So what’s the responsible car owner to do?
One way to fix this problem is to completely dismantle the whole intake system and soak it in cleaner for at least 2 full days, and then clean them manually. But as this takes a lot of time, effort, work, and expertise, it can get expensive quickly. Another is to flush the whole system with cleaning solution – but due to the amount of time the solution needs, the process is slow (it can take more than a week, during which you can’t drive the car) and still requires manual cleaning. Clearly neither of these are ideal.
There is a better way, though, and Euroworks has got it!
It’s called Walnut Blasting, and it’s much cheaper, faster, and more effective than any other way on the market. Basically, a blasting tool uses compressed air to shoot very fine walnut shell granules into the intake tract. These particles hit the built-up carbon deposits at high speed and break them away, while at the same time, they are soft enough that they won’t damage the metal around it. No expensive removal of the system is necessary, and it’s much quicker than the others – on the scale of minutes rather than weeks!
By doing this, you’re renewing the life of your intake valves and tract, making them more efficient and able to perform to a higher standard in all areas. Regular cleaning by walnut blasting will save you money over the long run, by making sure you’re not losing power or performance over the years.
