The problem of carbon sludge buildup in certain parts of the engine is no longer something to be ignored. You shouldn’t underestimate this issue. Especially if you have an old car which has a lifespan of more than 2 years or exceeds 2000km. There is a buildup of dirt inside the engine due to the oil vapor in the intake manifold area. It can block the air going through the combustion chamber. If the combustion chamber lack of air (oxygen), there will be incomplete combustion that will produce harmful pollutant and make the exhaust release the black smoke. Moreover, there are more engine issues push as: engine is not running smoothly, more fuel consumption, cold start misfires, etc. That will make cars performance get down overall. This carbon sludge problem is not only occurred in diesel cars but also gasoline cars. You can read the details at this link.
Even though carbon sludge buildup happens naturally, there is something that we can do to control the speed of formation. Like doing routine maintenance or it could also from driving habits. I have summarized several good driving habits possibly reducing the carbon sludge buildup in the intake manifold area:
- Take your car onto an interstate or high-speed road occasionally
The best way to minimize carbon sludge is to avoid short trips with heavy traffic. Short trip driving can lead to excessive carbon buildup and really cause problems. Once in a while take your car for 60 miles run on a highway at 60-70 miles per hour. Longer driving can burn off excess carbon sludge buildup inside the engine.
- Floor the pedals sometimes
The engine needs to be wound up and pushed at times. Getting the engine up in the revolution will allow it to work hard and burn some of the carbon buildup that tends to accumulate around the valves, throttle body, intake manifold, the combustion chamber, or other engine parts. Stepping on the gas pedal at high RPM about 4000 to 5000 RPM for 15-20 seconds repeatedly will make the carbon sludge come out along with the exhaust gas.
- Running the vehicle at top speed and top RPM
The source of the carbon sludge formation is from oil leakage pas the intake valve seals. Given enough high RPM, a high-pressure operation will typically burn and blow deposits from its place.
- Drive however you like by using D Clean installed in your engine
Several ways above sometimes can reduce our fun while driving. Fortunately, there is another way to remove carbon sludge buildup yet still enjoying any kind of driving habits. By installing a product called D Clean, which can remove and prevent carbon sludge buildup in our engine. This product has a liquid cleaner that can clean the carbon sludge buildup area automatically. If you interested in this product, you can read the testimonial one of our customer here.
