Preventative maintenance is the best kind of maintenance. For direct injection cars, one of the more common issues is a build-up of carbon deposits on the valves – largely due to the fact that fuel is not delivered via the intake ports, so the cleaning properties and additives in your fuel don’t in turn help to keep the valves clean.
Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia has just introduced Walnut Blasting Decarbonizer as part of its range of aftersales products, now available at all authorized dealerships. Recommended as a preventative maintenance measure at the 45,000 kilometre mark, this service is available for as low as RM 515.
The benefit of the process is that it helps to clean the deposits off of your valves, which ensures a proper seal and compression during combustion. While carbon deposits may seem like a fairly minor issue, if left untended to it can eventually result in engine misfiring and knock, as well as various other electronic power control and engine warning faults.
Erik Winter, Managing Director of Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia said that this service addition is part of the ongoing effort under the Volkswagen Cares promise. “It goes without saying that our customers are our top priority – and we are continuously looking for ways to improve our services and offerings to our customers under the VW Cares brand promise to provide value-added and quality services. This is one of many to come.“
