VOLKSWAGEN / AUDI: 2.0T CARBON BUILDUP CLEANING SERVICE

What is direct injection? And what are some of the pros and cons of this technology?

Direct injection sprays fuel directly into the combustion chamber rather than the intake track.

This is a faster, more efficient way to get fuel into the cylinders. This leads to better fuel economy and cleaner emissions.

With any advancement in technology comes a great benefit, but you can also see the negative effects.

In this case… carbon build up!

By spraying fuel directly into the cylinders you lose the ability to lubricate the valves (which allows them to stay cleaner for longer) like older model vehicles.
