A common question many Audi drivers have is, “what is walnut blasting carbon cleaning, and why do I need it?” Audi engines utilize direct-injection technology as opposed to internal combustion. This allows the engines to burn fuel more efficiently, which means more power, cleaner emissions, and increased fuel economy. The downside to this technology is that it can cause carbon to build up in the combustion chamber over time. Carbon deposits can cause a variety of problems, especially when they build up on the intake ports and valves. This can inhibit airflow or small pieces of carbon can detach and fall off into the intake tract, potentially causing damage to the valves, catalytic converter, and other engine components. Some signs you may need an Audi carbon cleaning includes:
- A rough idle, especially when the engine is cold
- Poor acceleration
- Engine backfires
- Reduced fuel mileage
- Decreased performance
During an Audi carbon cleaning, we remove the intake manifold and blast it out using walnut shells. Walnut shells are hard enough to remove the carbon deposits but soft enough that they won’t damage the parts. A walnut blasting carbon cleaning is generally recommended every 20k – 80k miles, depending on your model and driving conditions. In addition to carbon cleaning, we offer everything your Audi needs to stay reliable out on the road, from routine maintenance, like oil changes and tire services, to extensive repairs.
