1. What are engine carbon deposits and are they good or bad for the car?
Incomplete combustion products such as paraffin and colloids will build up in nozzles, exhaust valves, oil pipelines, spark plugs, and other engine parts. Under high temperature they are changed into carbon deposits.
Normally, after running 1 year or 2 (about 30,000 kilometers), the engine performance of the car shows varying degrees of decrease: power shortage, increased oil consumption, slow acceleration, poor start. Especially in cold starts there are excessive emissions and increased noise, engine oil blackening or even slight combustion.
If the car mileage reaches 30,000 kilometers, we recommend that you need to clean the engine carbon deposits to improve performance of the car and extend engine life.
2. How to prevent the engine carbon deposits?
1) Do not idle the engine for extended periods.
Leaving your car sitting with the engine on for a long time will easily lead to engine carbon deposits
2) Pay attention to the timing of flameout.
For vehicles equipped with turbochargers, don't stall the car immediately at high speed or climbing a hill. You can stall after 10 minutes of idling. Cars equipped with turbochargers can form carbon deposits several times faster than normal naturally aspirated vehicles.
3) Use clean gasoline.
Impurities in gasoline are the main cause of carbon deposits. In order to reduce carbon deposits, it is recommended to use higher grade gasoline.
4) Cleaning carbon deposits with special equipment.
Carbon deposit cleaning should be equipped with special equipment, so as to make the operation simple, safe and fast which have no harm to other components of the car.
5) Regular carbon removal maintenance.
It is usually cleaned about once for every 5,000 kilometers mileage. Do not remove carbon deposits until it has caused a significant decline in vehicle performance because the vehicle will become damaged.
3. Does steam wash the car with high temperature? Will it damage the car paint?
The principle of steam car washing machine: Firstly the washing machine heats water into steam and the steam will quickly condensed into water in the surface of the car. Dirt will be removed through the steam pressure quickly. Steam can not only disinfect, but also remove dirt. At the same time, it has strong physical characteristics of thermal degradation which can quickly dissolve the sticky sediment and dirt. The dirt is softened by heat and easily removed by steam jet with high pressure.
The steam temperature will not exceed the limit temperature of paint and rubber of the car. The paint is baked at 170 degrees in the paint room. The steam temperature at the exit of the spray gun is 100-120 degrees Celsius. But in the process of washing the car, the distance between the nozzle of the spray gun and the car body is 8-10 centimeters. When the steam is ejected to the car parts of thermal energy will dissipate. At this time, the steam temperature is only about 50 degrees. In summer, especially for black cars, the paint surface temperature reaches 60 degrees when exposed to the sun. Steam is only 50 degrees and is far less harmful to the paint. You may rest assured.
