Volkswagen and Audi 2.0T Carbon Buildup Cleaning Service
What is direct injection? And what are some of the pros and cons of this newer technology? Direct injection sprays fuel directly into the combustion chamber instead of into the intake track. This is a faster and more efficient way to get fuel into the cylinders which leads to better fuel economy and cleaner emissions. With any advancement in technology comes great benefit, but you also see the negative effects too. In this case… carbon buildup. By spraying fuel directly into the cylinders you lose the ability to lubricate the valves like older model vehicles.
