Carbon Cleaning & Walnut Blasting

Build-up on your car’s intake valve is pretty inevitable, especially if the majority of your driving is in urban conditions.

At Hedaux Motor Company we are pleased to offer a Carbon Cleaning & Walnut Blasting service using walnut blasting at our workshop in Helpringham, near Sleaford, which will restore performance to your vehicle, help with fuel economy and ensure a much smoother ride overall.

There are a few things that you can do yourself to help prevent carbon build-up:

  • Give the engine a chance to get really hot and burn off some of the carbon by getting out on the motorway and giving the car a good blast.
  • Keeping your ECU software up to date can in some cases, avoid any carbon building up at all.
  • Make sure that you have the oil in your engine changed regularly and only use good-quality synthetic oil if you’re topping it up yourself.
  • Filling up with high-octane fuel that burns hotter than the alternatives and so will burn away more of the carbon, leaving less to clog up your intake valve.

Walnut Blasting

This is now regarded as one of the most effective and safest methods of clearing out carbon from inside your car. Walnut blasting uses crushed walnut shells which are forced along by compressed air and gently break down the built-up carbon. The crushed shells are softer than the metal that makes up the intake manifold and valves so there’s no chance of those being damaged, but they’re hard enough to get rid of the carbon deposits.

After walnut blasting at Hedaux Motor Company, you should notice a positive difference almost immediately.
