    That's how Ford cleans theirs, I'm not sure about the other dealers in town.

    It's the only way when it becomes caked oil carbon cake.

    Chemicals aren't going to do it alone. Walnut, or an abrasive similar are needed. I don't know what it's like on a Subaru though. IE. how do you access the valves?

    Good to know. I'll pop by on my days off and ask how that service costs and if they would do non-fords.

    I'm pretty sure it's just the removal of the intake manifold.

    Also, I might as well ask Subaru here in town if they have a carbon deposit cleaning service. Besides, I'm hearing a pretty loud squeak when I disengage my clutch. I'll have them look at it at the same time.

    Bringing this back from the dead.

    Subaru dealership offers no service to clean carbon deposits. They honestly had no idea what I was talking about even. So, anybody know if anyone in town would be offering a crushed walnut shell blasting service?

    Nabs, if you see this, have you had this done on your Bimmer? If so, where?

    Note: I'm at approx. 35000 kms. I am noticing a bit of a decrease in MPGs. I'm assuming it's the carbon deposit. But that's just my theory.

    Never done this, nor will I have to, my BMW are too old for direct injection. Pretty much only the current and later years of the previous gen BMWs have DI
