What are the implications of carbon contamination?
Carbon contamination may eventually lead to drivability issues such as poor engine idle, engine misfires, poor intake valve sealing leading to low compression on cylinders, excessive engine detonation, malfunction indicator lamps (M.I.L) illuminated with various fault codes stored in the engine control unit.
How car you prevent this from happening?
Prostream’s TB 400 induction cleaning system is a preventative maintenance service program designed to effectively clean carbon from all contacting surfaces of the induction system from the throttle valve, to the intake runners, intake ports, inlet valves and also the combustion chamber.
We recommend the induction service every 15,000 km or at each handbook service interval to prevent carbon related issues from arising. This ensures that your vehicle is serviced to the highest standard, the engines tune will be maintained to its maximum potential, improving fuel economy and reducing the chance of an expensive repairs.
