Apparently Halfords do no stock diesel EGR cleaner any more. Spoke to one of the staff and he confirmed that they only have the petrol version, no explanation as to why though. On a happier note, I bought the petrol version anyway and cleaned mine, took half an hour but goodness me it's messy...
This stuff truly works. Anyone tried it?
I thought Forte was the best you could use but after my recent MOT (which passed), garage said my 2.4 was a bit smokey and to give it a try. Think I paid £20 but after only a few days I feel such a difference in throttle response and a reduction in...
I've just purchased a BMC filter for the wife's "G" but due to her work commitments haven't been able to have a look at how to replace the filter. Could someone please give me a heads up on how to go about changing it
My GT JTDm has a weird intermittent noise which can only be described as sounding like a vacuum cleaner. It doesn't happen from startup and usually only occurs after revving over 2000rpm whilst driving. It will then randomly disappear if I open up the throttle again whilst driving and come on...
I thought I'd give some Wynn's Injector Cleaner a go to see if I could notice any difference, I don't think my car is particularly down on power, but cleaning the injectors wouldn't do any harm.
I'll update again soon and I'm sure any gains would be psychological (much like a car is faster...
So long story short, during a -5c day i was driving around in my 1.9jtd GT somewhat aggressively (after it warmed up). Unfortunately, the turbo, on top of standard whistling sounds, suddenly started making a lower frequency whooshing sound. The closest I can describe it as is a low power...
Had this for Christmas.
Used it today on my post off-roading Panda & it worked really well.
I deviated from the instructions though as put Karcher general purpose cleaner through the bottle first, then used the washer spinner then put the wax in the bottle.
My drive now looks like a bog...
I use my GT 3.2 for predominately short trips (8-10 miles) and I run it exclusively on Shell V Power. It does get a good long blast every few weeks. Do I need to add injector cleaner every few tankfuls or would I be wasting my money? Car runs fine, BTW with an even, steady tickover and clean...
Removed from car.
Washed with soapy water.
Blown through with air line.
Blown through again.
Chucked in the ultrasonic cleaner for 6 minutes:
I thought I'd share my experience of this stuff, which I recently purchased from eBay.
I've been sneezing a lot recently and I suspect it's because my cars air con has some bacteria in it, so I got hold of some Comma Air Con Cleaner.
It has certainly made the car smell fresher. I have just run...
What's the diesel equivalent of putting some paraffin in the petrol tank?
I've heard people swear by a dash of 2-stroke oil.. but that's for the top-end, rather than the injectors, isn't it?
A dash of paraffin alright for the injectors is it, or will that break something?
Now as the weather is warmer, when I use my windscreen washers, the water initially comes out like gooey, clear,...well.......spunk!:big laugh: If I keep spraying ( Stop sniggering at the back!! ), it eventually runs out of jizz and pumps normal water.
I'm guessing its bacteria or some such in...
I've used these before to good effect so purchased some of their latest stuff to see if it's any good.
The nice gentlemen sent me some free samples too. Has anyone else tried the latest fuel system cleaners?
