MotorVac CarbonClean


My mechanic has recommended this service purported to clean fuel injectors and other engine parts of carbon build up. Does anyone have any information on this and its value?

Web site is:



Why do you think it needs carbon cleaned.  Most cars can go their whole life without once having and carbon cleaning and not suffer even a little. 

If there is no specific reason to do it, I would pass and I would wonder if the mechanic had a boat storage fee due.


It is not unusual for mechanics to recommend unnecessary services. If your car is running normally, no engine roughness, this would be an unnecessary service.
