1800- 2000 is the rate charged, I wonder this amount inclusive of new engine oil and oil filter or only cleaning.
I bought STP-Engine flush for Rs.210 from Jagat Auto Sales in Khan Market , inclusive of bill. Bought Castrol GTX Engine Oil for Rs.460 ( Approx) and Got the engine Oil filter OEM MMK from the showroom for Rs.120 ( Approx) so after the adding labour it came around Rs.890...!

Hi guys, I have one more query regarding decarbonisation...

In engines that have high mileage, it is said that the carbon deposits help in maintaining the compression ratio and also prevent the engine oil from entering into the cylinders and burning. Now, since my car has covered 56000 km, and if I get the engine decarbonised now, what is the possibility of the engine starting to burn the engine oil?

Hey Souljah,you have mentioned in your previous post Hyundai santro decarb @ rs 1200.

Is this the cost for getting car decarbonised from an authorised Hyundai Service centre?

Hey autopsyche..thanks for the info....does decarb cost changes from car to car? I mean is it different for santro, zen , indica and so on?

if yes...what it would cost for dcarb of hyundai santro in mumbai?

Cheers,
Amit

Default Effect on FE

Hi guys,

Will this de-carbonizing affect the FE? Or will it just improve the life of engine and improve the NVH of the engine?

Ciao

Before and after compression tests can be done anytime to prove that.
This is on the same thread page 1. Read before you post bro.

Has anyone found any increase in FE after a Decard job? Also is it worth it if it is done at a Maruti Service station or are there any specailised guys in bombay who do a good job?

That is very surprising. If you remove carbon deposits and generally improve the engine, you'd expect FE to improve atleast marginally. Some one please clarify

Take heart, I believe it is one such mechanic gyan... I do not take it seriously.. Cleaner engine, better performance, period.

Agree,

But that school of thought thinks that the carbon is actually creating better seals within the engeine etc etc.

I always thought the decarb is only for petrol engines. I know diesel is also a hydrocarbon, but never heard of a decarb for diesel engines.

Someone please explain whether the decarbing process is as important for diesels as for petrol. My palio D has done over 30K kms and I havnt done it yet. And the guys in TVS never told me I need to get it done. Please throw some light, so that atleast I can get it done for the next service.

I got a Decarb & an injector clean done on my Zen which has clocked 50,000kms. I have always used Speed, Power even 97 octane at times, but when the guy opened the throttle body i was shcoked to see the carbon depoits there.
My engine i purring real nice & is very peppy now. i paid at total of 2100 at a maruti service station.
Havent check the Fe but the maruti guys said that the Fe would increase
