Hi 

 

I am having my car terracleaned this coming tuesday at my closest terraclean operator.

 

Its gonna cost £90.

 

I have really high expectations for this and hopefully will get a smoother drive and better mpg etc.

 

anyone got any personal experience of a terraclean service anything to watch out for.

 

Are my expectations to high or is this the real deal in cleaning the inside of your engine out.

 

My car has just hit 50,000 and i'm guessing its never been terracleaned before, so i was thinking why not try it.

I hope so.

 

 

I do alot of short town and A road driving, i notice after prolonged short driving the cars engine does feel rougher for a few miles until i go on a longer drive again.

 

 

Probably thinking if i can get all that carbon crap out the engine, short term and long term performance will be increased.

Thanks steads , I'll be the Guinea pig for you all. I can't really see any negatives by having it done. Surely I can only see benefits from this. I know some people are sceptical of these fluids and things.

Personally I hope they are wrong and it will breathe some extra life and umph into my focus

I believe I was the first to take the leap of faith a year or so ago.
Definitely don't regret having it done.
Actually planning to have another one done this year before the annual service.

My only slight worry. Would I need the oil changing after this service, as I had the car fully serviced around 2 months ago. Or will it be ok to leave existing oil in there

I'm not to fussed about all the hydrocarbons and stuff. I know it's important, but my car is safely below those figures now without using terraclean before. What I would want is a better driving experience. Crisper acceleration, smoother engine. All that stuff is what I really want.

Great idea. Have this planned myself after the next service at 96,000 miles, which should be in the next 2-3 months. Do let us know how you get along and a review :)

He doesn't mention an oil change in video as your only cleaning out the combustion side of things not the lubrication .

You shouldn't have any problems at all.
The oil shouldn't be affected by the process.

Yeah will give my overall experience it's done hassen . My cars only 4 years old with 50 k on the clock. I use branded fuel. And the car gets an oil flush on each service too. So I'm hoping the fuel system will clean up properly and hopefully get an even better driving experience, though its a great experience now
