An EGR valve is well known for sticking and clogging up with carbon deposits.
This is also true for the turbo, and a build-up of carbon on the vanes can severely affect the efficiency that it runs at. In Variable Vanes Turbos (VNT) the carbon build up causes desired boost pressures not being met properly, causing poor air fuel ratios which increases the soot produced during combustion, so the problem accelerates itself.
TerraClean have produced a tool that can clean the full system including EGR, Connecting pipework, EGR Cooler and the Turbo restoring the proper function of all the components, it is advised to clean the full system because just cleaning the exhaust gas recirculation valve does not give a lasting result as the soot will build back up quickly.
The EGR system of a diesel engine often accumulates carbon deposits. These deposits can negatively affect the performance of an engine.
TerraDiesel EGR and Induction System Cleaner removes these deposits, restoring the fuel economy and performance of an engine.
Below are some before and after pictures showing the results we can achieve:
You can clearly see the difference
So if you are considering having an expensive EGR valve replaces give us a call to see if cleaning will be a cheaper quicker alternative, we cover all areas such as Leeds, York, Harrogate, Sheffield, Doncaster for a TerraClean, EGR cleaning or Induction System cleaning.
