What is the Power Clean Treatment Service?

It goes beyond surface cleaning; it thoroughly cleans your vehicle’s engine, enhancing its efficiency and ensuring trouble-free driving.

In today’s world of advanced engines, carbon build-up can lead to numerous issues, such as:

  • reduced power,
  • increased emissions,
  • decreased fuel efficiency,
  • and even a blocked diesel particulate filter.

Extensive testing has proven that our power clean machine effectively removes these deposits without requiring any engine disassembly. Not only does this extend the lifespan of your engine, but it also saves you time and labour costs.

Visit us at Roy Hubbard Motors and experience the difference our Power Clean Treatment Service can make for your vehicle. Trust us to keep your engine running smoothly, so you can enjoy the open road without any worries.

What is ‘Walnut Blasting’?

Walnut Shell Blasting is a seperate service that uses pressurised air and crushed walnut shells (yes, really!) to clean carbon deposits in the Intake Valve track of a vehicle.

The benefits include increased horsepower and torque, improved fuel efficiency, and easy diagnosis of carbon buildup issues.

So here comes the science bit…

Direct fuel injection has gained popularity among manufacturers due to its ability to enhance fuel efficiency, power, and overall performance. Just like humans need oxygen to function, cars require it too! When you step on the accelerator, the car injects fuel into the combustion chamber. Spark plugs ignite the fuel, allowing the car to run smoothly. However, this process also produces carbon as a by-product, similar to how we exhale carbon dioxide. Unfortunately, this carbon buildup can negatively impact the car’s combustion, affecting compression ratio, operating temperature, and sensor readings. It even coats vital components like air intake valves, combustion chamber, and exhaust, restricting the car’s ability to “breathe.” This results in decreased efficiency and power, a bit like a car is suffering from asthma!

To address this issue, walnut blasting is effectively used to remove the carbon deposits from the engine. This technique involves using crushed walnut shells, propelled by compressed air, to clean the intake manifold thoroughly and restore the car’s performance to its optimal state.

The service is recommended every 40,000 to 50,000 miles for regular vehicles and every 30,000 to 35,000 miles for modified or frequently driven ones. The process takes about 3 to 3.5 hours to complete.

Walnut Shell Blasting is a cost-effective way to maintain engine performance and prevent common issues caused by carbon buildup and it’s another service we recommend here at Roy Hubbard Motors.
