Petrol Intake System Carbon Clean $160.50

Why do it?

Excessive carbon build up affects how your engine “breathes” by restricting air flow into the engine and the proper operation of the throttle body. The choking of the airways your engine breathes through, a dirty throttle body and valve deposits will lead to issues such as poor throttle response, loss of engine power and increased fuel consumption.

How does Carbon build up?

Diesel Engines rely on drawing in large quantities of air to operate efficiently, over time carbon deposits build up on the inner walls of the induction system due to emission control devices such as exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valves sending exhaust gases and unburnt fuel back into the induction system. Also the use of low viscosity engine oils and sealed crankcase ventilation.

Short trips and city driving also contribute to carbon build up.

As carbon deposits form they attract more carbon, accelerating the process.

Why do it?

Carbon build up is not a case of “if”. It will occur.

A car battery is the most important component in any vehicle’s electrical system. It provides short bursts of energy to power the car lights, accessories and engine. Once the battery jolts the engine to life, the alternator takes over and continues the power transmission.

If your car battery is dead, your vehicle won’t start, and the alternator will have to work too hard — potentially to the point of failure — which is why it’s so important to take care of the battery.

How long do car batteries last?

Car batteries will typically last between 3 to 5 years depending on the vehicle. Flat or damaged batteries are one of the top causes for roadside breakdowns as they are simply too old to do their job. Our mechanic can inspect your vehicle and inform you if it’s time to go for a car battery replacement.

How to charge a car battery?

Using jumper cables is a safe and easy way to quickly power up your dead car battery.

How to replace a car battery?

It’s always a good idea to have a licenced mechanic complete any vehicle repairs on your motor and that includes installing a new car battery. All our mobile mechanics are fully licenced technicians who can provide repairs on the spot such as battery replacements or services including logbook services on new cars.

How many volts can a car battery produce?

Healthy car batteries or fully charged batteries can produce about 12.6 volts when the car engine is running. When properly charged, a car battery can power a 25A load for nine to 15 hours. Thereafter, the voltage may drop below 10.5 volts and the battery might not be able to start the car. If you drain your car battery too far, you can damage its ability to hold a charge in the future. It is hence advisable to get a car battery replacement on time.

The easiest way to measure your car battery’s voltage is by using a multimeter. Your Lube Mobile mechanic will have all the tools needed to test the health of your car battery.

The performance of your car battery is also dependent on several other parts. Say, for example, you shouldn’t overlook the symptoms of bad or failing battery terminal ends as they are the first point of contact between the car battery and the vehicle’s electrical system. Similarly, a car with a failed alternator can only run for a short time as once the battery is depleted, the vehicle will die and fail to restart.

Also note that the fuse and fusible links inside your car will be the first failure point in the event of a short or overload. And, if you hear a clicking noise when turning the key or pushing the start button, chances are you need a starter motor replacement. If you are unsure about the performance of any of these parts, you should contact our mobile mechanics for a thorough diagnosis.

We can also help if your automotive headlights are constantly having issues or your vehicle stalls suddenly because of a failing ignition switch. We use only branded spare parts and all our repair and replacement work is covered under our 12 month/20,000km warranty scheme.
