Carbon build up from short trips inside combustion chambers, off
of Valves and such, yes, I have personal experiance with this.
(Story at bottom) But this isnt a qui…ck 1/2 hour trip, it takes 2
or 3 thousand miles.
Cleaning Intakes and throttle assemblies, NO
Carbon Build up from short trips and not warming the engine
completly and correctly was demonstrated to me with a Ford van I
was assigned to drive in the winter of 1990. The Manager of our
depot had been using it as a personal vehical. It got 2 trips a day
of about 5 minutes to and from his house through a little sleepy
It still ran fine when I got it. I was assigned to run it on a
five hundred mile round trip each day. The first day I had to stop
for fuel twice, having emptied both tanks.
The next day I had too refuel only once at the 250 mile
A week later I was finaly able to make the round trip, with a
little less than a quarter tank left over. That was the range it
operated at for the remainder of the winter. Including one
terifying trip through the ditch in a blizzard.
All good fun
