Re: Carbon clean

Nope, but I have heard anecdotal tales of removing all the carbon build up around pistons, rings, bores etc, then losing compression. On a high mileage engine it may cause issues if that is the case. Hopefully someone who has actually done it will be along to advise you better. Yes I agree I have a...
