Hi I have the same problem,would you reccommend cleaning the
,before trying the 10k power boost cleaner ? some of the reviews on halfords website,havent mentioned cleaning the
,also on the halfords site they said theyve just used half a can..thanks very much for the advice
I can't see the logic in using half the can??? The instructions clearly say use the whole can, after all it's a solvent that works by emulsifying the
deposits to release them from the walls of the intake system.
The solvent goes into the intake after the Mass Airflow Sensor, through the compressor side of the
, through the intercooler and then into the inlet manifold before entering the combustion chamber- that's alot of surfaces to clean with half a can.
The thing that made me believe in it was the plumes of blue/grey smoke that came out while revving it and seeing the sludge in my inlett manifold before using it. If you want to see how bad your engine is, simply remove the plastic pipe going into the inlet manifold and give it a scrape- yours may not be as bad as mine was (huge clumps of carbon near the
and gloopy sludge further toward the engine). I considered removing the intake manifold but it looked too big a job and I didn't want to risk shearing the bolts as they also hold the exhaust manifold on.
Good luck, a can is only the cost of 3 gallons of fuel
