If you’ve ever had to shell out to buy a replacement turbocharger for your car, you’ll already know the severe dent that it can make in your wallet.
Keeping your turbo in tip-top condition by cutting down on carbon deposits will no doubt boost longevity and prevent expensive replacement costs, as well as boosting efficiency along the way too.
A new product, Diesel Turbo Cleaner, is designed and made in Evesham, Worcestershire, and works in a three-stage process and is ideal for all diesel engines that come equipped with a variable vane turbocharger.
It’s designed for professional use or for experienced DIYers that know their way around an engine and turbocharger, as there are procedures that need to be followed to ensure that every area of the turbo gets cleaned.
Stage one is the deep cleansing agent that is designed to attack and remove all the harmful carbon deposits. Part two is a neutraliser that counteracts the chemicals in stage one and flushes out all of the carbon and dirt that has been dislodged. It’s then that the turbocharger outlet is reassembled and you’ll be able to start the car and see the fruits of your labour.
A diesel treatment and injector cleaner is provided too, and it’s recommended that the diesel fuel filter is filled up with the stuff, and the remainder of the bottle decanted into the tank.
The makers claim that a combustion enhancer allows fuel to burn more completely, cutting down on diesel clatter and reducing CO2 emissions along the way. It’s designed to clean injectors, pistons and the combustion chambers too, and will reduce the amount of smoke produced by the engine.
Priced at £49.99, the Diesel Turbo Cleaner is a lot cheaper than reconditioning a turbocharger, but isn’t the kind of job an amateur DIYer can tackle. It’s best to leave it to someone that knows what they are doing to avoid any unexpected problems.
You can buy the kit, comprising of two 500ml sprays, a pair of latex gloves and extension tubes, together with a 325ml diesel treatment and injector cleaner, online at www.dieselturbocleaner.co.uk or find your nearest seller by putting your postcode into their easy to use search facility.
