Volkswagen Carbon Cleaning

Volkswagen Carbon Cleaning Plainfield, IL | Naperville, IL

Direct injection engines require a little extra care compared to the traditional port injection engines. Carbon build-up is very common on Volkswagen direct injection engines. It’s just a matter of time before your beloved Volkswagen starts losing the power it once had. If you notice your Volkswagen is starting to act sluggish, along with a loss in gas mileage, you are most definitely in need of carbon cleaning at PKW Motorwerks in Plainfield, IL.

What is Carbon Build-Up?

Carbon build-up in your Volkswagen engine is a result of fumes from combustion gases getting deposited on your VW’s ports and valves (creating a black soot) – The carbon build up restricts air flow to the vehicle’s engine causing many symptoms:

  • Engine Misfire
  • Rough Idle at Cold Start
  • Engine Vibrates or Shakes
  • Check Engine Light

What's Included in the removal?

First, we remove the intake manifold from your Volkswagen engine and then clean the ports and intake valves via walnut blasting. Walnut blasting is the best option on the market today. Many shops try to sell the cheap chemical version that will not give you the same results. The walnut blasting process consists of shooting walnut shell pieces onto the port and intake valves with a compressed air blaster. The pricing and time it takes will depend on the Volkswagen engine size. Give us a call at 630-281-4100 for a free quote for your specific Volkswagen model and we can get you squared away and back on the road.
