Diesel intake manifold carbon cleaning

Like most things, prevention is better than a cure.  That’s why we recommend using our BG Diesel induction cleaning process as maintenance every couple of years to avoid the more drastic intrusive method of removing the intake system when problems start to develop.

Unfortunately, if the intake is left unserviced, there comes a point where even the most powerful of on car cleaners cannot break down extreme buildup and the only option is manual cleaning.

What to do about it?

We recently invested in an ultrasonic cleaning bath to ensure that when items do need to be removed from the engine, particularly intake manifolds, we get a perfectly clean result to ensure the labour spent on removal is worth it.

Take a look at the results we got cleaning a choked up Mitsubishi Pajero 4M41 diesel engine intake system this week, including the upper and lower intake manifold and EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) valve – the results speak for themselves.

For all your diesel diagnostic issues, ranging from check engine light, poor fuel economy, blowing black and white smoke, hard starting and rough running.
