Cleaning GDI Engine Carbon Deposits without Engine Teardown
GDI Engines are more prone to carbon deposits on the intake valves. Cleaning these carbon deposits can be difficult and time consuming due to having to open the engine to get at the valves. However, there are now spray-on cleaners that can be used to clean the valves without removing them.
GDI engines deliver increased power, performance, and gas mileage. GDI, or gas direct injection engines, are great engines, but they need a bit more periodic maintenance. If you drive one of these vehicles, this is important. Because of their design these engines need treatment with CRC GDI IVD Intake Valve Cleaner every 10,000 miles.
Here’s why. In traditional port fuel injection or PFI engines, the gasoline washes over the valves cleaning them in the process. In GDI engines gasoline is injected directly into the cylinder, so it never comes in contact with the intake valves. Without that constant cleaning action, harmful carbon deposits buildup on the valves. The result is reduced performance and loss of power. Chunks of carbon can even break off and cause damage to engines and other components.
Some methods of removing the carbon involve costly, labor-intensive processes. CRC solves this problem easily and affordably with its GDI IVD Intake Valve Cleaner, which safely dissolves the carbon deposits without requiring engine teardown. Use it before every oil change. Do it yourself, or have it done by your local service center. The result will be better performance and longer engine life for your vehicle.
