Engine Decarbonization
Hello and Salam Mybenzer,

About a month ago I noticed the car has this noice ktktktktk…like ticking sound when climbing the hill... feel sluggish . No sound when on a level road and no vibration on the engine.

I spoke to my mechanic today and he recommended an engine decarbonization to remove possible carbon buildup which probably could cause the problem for my M102 Engine. Estimate quote: RM 2000. I need a second opinion of this.

My questions are:

1. Any idea what could be causing this noice?
2. Has anyone done this engine decarbonization procedure before?how much?
3. Would carbon buildup cause the noice and if so, how?
4. Are there any other alternative solution?

Thank you in advance guys.

hi Mabel,

i think better try cheaper solution first e.g. use liquid to remove carbon (google decarbonization).

From your description, it doesn't sound like a major problem so to spend RM 2000 would be too much. It might be more worthwhile to change all spark plugs, air filter, fuel filter and see if that sorts out the problem. Alternative to decarbonization, try to refill a tank of Shell V-Power. No harm trying.

maybe they are taliking about a top overhaul...and at the same time, they would perform a cleaning of the piston heads and valves.

on your questions...sometimes it is true that a dirty engine can make the car feel lethargic and vibrations from this causes all kinds of noise.

Dear friends,

Thanks for all your comments.

My plan right now is to try the following:

1. Switch back to RON 97...need to wait until the current RON 92 fuel finish..
2. If this does not work, I will put in the Mercs Fuel injector cleaner.
3. Will consider other option mentioned above.

Thanks a million Guys!

V-Power cleans my 35 years old merc engine, try a tankful or two and see the difference.

If you saw a black W115 with reg number BAT3465 (with olde fonts!) that's me...hehehe... vroom...vroom...

mabel, you don't have to wait until you empty the ron 92 fuel first. from what i know, you can mix any ron 97 or v power safely when the tank is half full.

i am curious (caught the bug from you) ...why ron 92 bro??

"About a month ago I noticed the car has this noice ktktktktk…like ticking sound when climbing the hill... feel sluggish . No sound when on a level road and no vibration on the engine. "

Could be due to carbon built up which caused pre-ignition when engine is under high load, ie: climbing hill.
Switching back to RON97 should help to prevent pre-ignition but source of problem is not solved, ie: carbon build up is still there.

Recommend to try at least 3 tank full of V-Power (1 tank tak cukup lah as carbon built up could be quite bad already). Try to rev the engine when you can drive fast to blow out the carbon. After that you can consider switching back to RON92. But only use RON92 from Caltex or BHP as other RON92 might have very little cleaning additive which cause carbon build up in the engine.

Could be brother...what makes me think about seeking this 2nd opinion is that there is no white or black smokes coming from the exhaust..

1) .. noise ktktktktk…like ticking sound when climbing the hill
... This is very Clear The Noise Come At Up Hill,
It Is Indicate That The Engine Is Under Power !!
... Is The Noise Come During The Sudden Acceleration ??
If YES .... It Is Indicate The Engine IS Under Power !!
... This Type Of Noise We Call "PINKING SOUND" !!!
... If The Engine Is Pinking And The Engine Is UnderPower,
This Indicate The Carbon
Unburn Petrol is Too Much In The Combustion Chamber ...



ADVICE NO 1 :
Add Petrol Additive Or Fill Up Higher Grade RON Petrol Like SHELL V-POWER
and Go For A High Rev or High RPM

specially at the 1st gear or 2nd gear with a low speed Only ....
Do NOT Apply at the final gear ,
otherwise you car is running at a very high speed

Think On The Road Safety to The Other And Yourself ...
As The High TEMPERATURE buil-up Enough To Burnt Off
The Carbon Deposit In The Combustion Chamber !!!!


ADVICE NO 2 :
Ask Your Mechanic Check The Ignition Timing ...
Suspect Ignition Timing Is Too High ... And It Cause Pre-Combustion ...
Just Retard The Timming !!!!
RECOMENDED SPEC :
15' Before TDC idling speed 850rpm
32' Before TDC Accelerate Engine Speed to 4500rpm
w/out vacuum apply to the distributor

ADVICE NO 3 :
Check The Fuel Filter Conditon


Hopefully It Just The PINKING noise Not A KNOCKING Noise !!!

KNOCKING Sound Also CAN Come Out When Go Up Hill
... This Indicate That Main Bearing At The Crankshaft OR
Small Bearing At Connecting Rod had Worn Out has Excessive Play
.... If Knocking Noise Heard ,,, Habis Liao
Mechanical Parts Worn out ... Angkat Engine !!!
So Scarely !!!!!!!!!!!!!!



HAPPY MOTORING
