Yup decarbonisation i still done at some maruti authorised service stations.

I found OWS engine flush followed by OWS 360 works best. The carbon deposits over last 8 years had reduced the compression in all the 4 cylinders of my car.

I checked the compression before flush and they were uneven and low across all 4 cylinders. After the flush the compression shot up in all 4 cylinders and evened out on all 4 cylinders.

More important the car felt amazing to drive. Totally changed the driving feel even of a 8 year old car.

Don't laugh or get shocked but an age old technique involved adding drops of water down a carb. The engine would sputter and somehow the water ended up cleaning carbon.

So here is my personal experience with Flush Additives.

Believe me or not - how a flush/additive/acid will remove the carbon which was removed by two 18v cordless Bosch drilling machines?

please check this thread: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/access...es-here-2.html

Default Carbon Deposits?

Hello India ,

Really nice to see enthusiasts still interested in their vehicles. It is getting more rare over here in the USA with all the rediculous regulations. Regarding carbon deposits there is a product over here we have been playing with on the dyno. We think the results we are seeing from the dyno are because this product is removing carbon deposits. Our fuel is getting worse and worse. I don't know if you have it over there yet but is is called oxytane...Very supriseing performance improvements.
