And none of the additives removed the carbon deposits from my fuel injectors. If you are in chennai, I welcome you come the workshop to see my car. (it will be there 2 more days).

And regarding the Engine Flush OWS, it worked well. But believe me or not, NO ADDITIVES or Diesel or even ACIDs can remove the carbon 100% - we used two 18v Bosch drilling machines to clean the carbons!!!! But now I am wondering, how SYNTHETIC Oils will do its job 100%, if your oil bump, sump & strainer are like mine(after a Engine flush) - believe me or not I used new 15w40 Oil just for flushing - that means oil change just before the flush!!!!)!
Which engine oil(s) you have been using till date ? i.e. the make Castrol/HP/Mobil ?

@ibm_jennifer,

Thanks for the response. I did check with concorde motors and they said FIAT has not recommended any of decarb activities for their cars. So just got the regular service done by them.

Please continue posting your journey of cleaning this. This one very informative thread in the entire forum which details the engine and decarbonisation process. we are truly enjoying this good piece of information and learning a lot from this. Am sure this thread would serve as one of the best guides for decarbonisation process.

Thanks for all your efforts. Keep going

This engine opener is surely an eye opener.
watching all the pictures very carefully..

Please keep them coming, I am actually waiting for final outcome, when you actually run it on road, and the power and performance benefits which you get out of it.

Additives vs Manual Decarbonization. Please change the thread title accordingly...
