How was your experience with the engine de-carbonisation process? An interesting and very informative thread here suggests that de-carbonisation is just another gimmick.
As I wrote, I am not sure about the throttle body cleaning charges. Either it was 280 or 380 bucks. And since, there is not much in terms of parts replaced in throttle body, the full 360/- is labour cost only. There is only a gasket change which costs about Rs. 13/-. This gasket sits between the throttle body and the air intake manifold.

And whether engine de-carbonization is just a gimmick, yes, that requires another thread in itself. However, some views and experiences of senior & distinguished members does suggest that a market for de-carbonization exists. The first decarb that my car had at 14K kms gave me a feeling that its running lighter. The ones that followed later gave me more of 'mental BHP' than anything else!

I was charged 350 (only labor no parts) for throttle body cleaning and 1200 for engine decarbonization at a MASS for my alto last december.

The fuel filter has also been changed along with valve clearances adjusted and timing checked.

Also the mileage is really really bad with the car giving 7kmpl in city and 10-11kmpl on the highway.

The HM guys claim the lancer's injectors don't ever need to be cleaned as they are self cleaning type which is utter rubbish.

Car has done 75,000kms.
Hi, when was the last time you had replaced the spark plug of your vehicle.

If the injectors on your vehicle is not working fine , your vehicle will experience missing of engine or misfiring, but as per your explanation there is no misfiring.

Just check the spark plugs and especially the gap of the plugs.
