Diagnostic help

Some tricks to help us for the diagnosis of the failure
The MIL will blink once per second when a misfire is detected severe enough to cause catalyst damage. If the MIL is on steady state, due to a misfire, this will indicate the threshold for emissions was exceeded and cause the vehicle to fail an inspection and maintenance tailpipe test.

The Carbon Cleaning ?
Prevents maintenance on engine problems

Preventive engine cleaning enables you to restore engine parts rather than replacing them, thereby saving vehicle owners on costly parts, such as a new turbocharger ($ 1.350 – 3.100), catalytic converter ($ 600 – 2.000), DPF ($ 600 – 2.000) or EGR valve ($ 370 – 500).

These problems result mainly from poor combustion, which stifles the engine.

So before replacing your engine parts, try Carbon Cleaning. A dirty engine as the result of carbon deposits is the new threat to vehicle performance.
