    Default 10K Boost Diesel Decoke-I want to hear from you IF you've used it!

    Hey folks,

    Just been recommended this stuff by another user and have just ordered a can so am praying this will work for me.

    Want to hear some of your stories about it IF you have used the stuff?

    I googled the product after hitting the buy now button and some of the stories are that it is very dependant on the type of oil in my car [READ HERE], and can actually burn out the Engine/Turbo.

    My car was last serviced by Vx (a chap I used to know so it went in via the back door) but we cannot confirm what grade of oil was used. Should I be OK with it?

    PRODUCT LINKY

    Please help as I am desperately trying to cure the non-existant power sub 1.8k rpm.

    As always fella's, Thanx!





    Bye bye Vec B

    I didn't think injection engines, petrol or diesel, needed decoking as the air/fuel mixture is always optimal.

    Since any carbon deposits would improve your compression ratio by sealing the cylinder bore better and reducing combustion volume your problem may lie elsewhere.

    Hi. G

    It doesn't matter what oil is in the car as its not added to the oil and doesn't come in contact with it as it goes through the air intake.

    Regards

    What have vx said regarding the ecu update? How much? I personally would go after this first before adding something that may improve performance, do nothing or make things worse.

    I think your problem is either the egr valve or throttle body. Have you had this looked at? this is also known to get sooted up drop performance too.

    This doesn't sound all that different from the Wynns EGR3 that I used earlier this year - they both look to be de-sooting sprays that you quirt into the air intake. That definitely made a different to my DTi.

    The EGR3 is designed to clean out the EGR valve - which it does - but it also cleans the soot off of everything else it touches as well.

    Obviously read the instructions, but if you use this stuff the same way as the EGR 3 and you have a DTi, then take the plastic cover off the top of the engine and disconnect the air hose the fastens on to the inlet manifold and spray the stuff into the inlet manfold.

    Just make sure there's nothing loose to get sucked into the engine and beware the hurricane from the disconnected air hose if you have to rev the engine past about 1800-2000 as the turbo will kick in.

    Also if you rev it with the host disconnected, you'll get the spanner light as the boost sensor won't see the boost pressure. It does off as soon as everything is back together with no need to reset.

    If you want to see how clean your EGR is and to check that it opens and closes OK, you can take the top part of the inlet manifold off using the 4 Torx screws on top. It's all alloy though so beware of crossed threads and over-tightening. The EGR valve will open and close when the engine is hot and revved up past about 2000-2500 RPM.

    What about the throttle body?? I havent a clue where it is so you may need the assistance of a ramp/axle stands.

    Apparently earlier models had control circuit failure but not 100% on that one.
