Vehicles: Cars and Trucks powered by 4 cycle gasoline engines
Restoring a vehicle’s performance to its near new level is possible. Achieving this result is possible however it is important to recognize that several types of contaminants are created within the engine, that collectively are responsible for the gradual loss in performance. To return an engine to its original performance capabilities it is necessary to use proven chemical cleaning products that are specifically formulated to remove specific contaminants from specific parts or components within an engine and its fuel management system. For this reason a single step cleaning process using a universal chemical cleaning agent is not very effective in delivering improved engine performance.
The Driveability Team of experts identified that in order to perform a very effective cleaning service resulting in the removal of power robbing contaminants from an engine, requires that three different specifically formulated chemical cleaning products be used in the servicing process. In addition, it was also identified that the type of fuel management system used by a vehicle manufacturer on an engine also dictates the type chemical cleaning agent necessary in the cleaning process. For this reason, the Driveability Team recommend and created three different engine service developed specifically to meet the repair industry service challenge. Each service kit box is colour coded (Red, Black, White), named specifically by Fuel Management (Card/TBI, MPI, DI), the product labels for each of the performance service kits are coordinated to match the kit box, and each of the three cleaning products within the kits are identified with a number on both the label and the cap to identify the step in which the service chemical is to be administered into the engine when performing the cleaning process.
Each of the service kits have been designed to assist a servicing technician the selecting the proper service kit for any vehicle identified needing the service. The performance service kits are packaged to deliver the best possible service based on the fuel management system used by the vehicle. The three service kits are packages as follows:
Carb/TBI – Carburetor/Throttle Body Injection
The service kit is “RED” in colour and the front panel of the service kit box provides a cutaway of an engine along with pictures of a typical carburetor or throttle body fuel management system. The engine cutaway shows that both fuel and air enter the engine via the intake manifold. This air/fuel mix is demonstrated by the blue and orange clouds entering the engine’s combustion chamber.
MPI – Multi-Point Injection
The service kit is “BLACK” in colour and the front panel of the service kit box provides a cutaway of an engine along with the position of a fuel injector in an engine using a Multi-Point Injection system and the air fuel flow is demonstrated by the blue and orange clouds entering the engine’s combustion chamber. It is important to note that the orange fuel clouds do not appear until after the fuel injector.
DI – Direct Injection
The service kit is “WHITE” in colour and the front panel of the service kit box provides a cutaway of an engine along with the position of a fuel injector in an engine using a Direct Injection system and that there is only air flow into the engine and this is demonstrated by the blue clouds entering the engine’s combustion chamber. In this type of engine the fuel is injected into the engine combustion chamber directly by the injector which is shown in the cutaway as being install next to the spark plug.
Engine Service Kit Contents
In addition to the three specific service cleaning agents, the engine service kits include a “How To” booklet that describes the step-by-step performance enhancement service specific to the engine’s fuel management system. In addition the kit contains the necessary tools required to effectively deliver each of the cleaning agents.
