Happy Friday everyone. Today I am back in the Passat with another automotive podcast. I get asked about carbon buildup on direct injection engines all the time. Generally they are asking about the newer VW engines the TSI. That would be engine codes CCTA and CBFA. These direct injection engines are developing issues with carbon on the back of the intake valves. This is not just a VW problem. This is an issue with most direct injection engines.
Sponsor of the day:
Rain Eater wiper blades. Wipers are one of the most important safety items on our cars. Think not, you must have never driven in bad weather. When you are ready to replace your wiper blades, a very easy DIY, check out RainEater wipers atRainEater.com. Plus I LOVE that their CEO is the one monitoring social media.
Join me today as we chat about:
- Why these engines have carbon build up
- Theories from BG products
- PCV systems
- Oil service lengths
- How to prevent carbon buildup
- The “Italian TuneUp”
- How to fix carbon buildup
- VW recommended fuel treatment
- and more
