Chemical Engine De-carbonization Service May Be Suggested At Specific Interval
Bethesda, Maryland — The Automotive Maintenance and Repair Association (AMRA) recommends to its members that a chemical engine de-carbonization service be SUGGESTED for preventive maintenance at the interval of 15,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first. The AMRA Maintenance Service Task Force reached its conclusion after extensive study of industry data, including a review of OEM and other Technical Service Bulletins, SAE Papers and independent laboratory studies, among other resources. The data showed that fuel system deposits that may occur without this service, including those among many different air intake, fuel injector, valve and combustion chamber components, have an adverse effect on vehicle performance, fuel economy and emissions.
AMRA representatives presented this recommendation, along with others, with extensive supporting materials, to members of the National Association of Consumer Agency Administrators (NACAA). NACAA’s members include regulators and enforcers of consumer-oriented laws, including those that affect auto repair. Their members come from most states of the U.S. and Canada. While not endorsing this or any other recommendation, NACAA members provided input and suggestions to the AMRA recommendations.
