I used this maf cleaner on the MAP sensor and it worked like a charm. Blasted all the gunk right off ...

Carbon Cleaning a 320d/330d
I had the intake manifold removed and cleaned this year on my F30 330d, it was dirty, car felt a lot smoother after the clean

RE: Carbon Cleaning a 320d/330d
Just some feedback on the Liqui Moly cleaner.

Supplier only had one tin in stock, I just popped boost pipe off, connected Ista and temporarily set the idle to 2500rpm. I did this with 2 intervals as I didnt want to run the engine that high for so long.

That stuff is magic! I could not believe how it softened the gunk!

Idles and drives much smoother, I never had issues. I just did this as a precaution and because I cant leave things alone and was surprised with the difference.

I disabled the EGR at 191k so Im sure its still very dirty. I also still want to do swirl flap delete but cant find the kit. But will use another tin in the mean time until I have to pull manifold.

Nope, I was just driving home from work and on impulse took detour to Goldwagen.

Kyle Wrote:I initially researched this when attempting to clean my boost (map) sensor, tried IPA, Carb cleaner, electrical contact cleaner and nothing would shift the carbon, eventually sprayed with with the LM 5168 and it was brand new in 2 seconds, also the amount of carbon that spills out the intake when cleaning definitely shows that the solution works. To spray the entire can through the intake takes around 10 minutes, I would say 2 cans are more than enough even though I only used one. I might run another can through in 1000km or so, since my EGR is deactivated it should not get worse than it currently is.

Very interesting. I think i should give this a try as well. Not having any issues, but my egr is still active (the car hasnt been remapped). Mileage is over 130k at the moment.

Is this step absolutely necessary. Would the car cut out if done at idle? I have Carista dongle with Torque Pro but I doubt I will be able to set the rpm with it.

Just get someone to sit in the car and keep the revs up Thumbs

iirc E90 LCi and F30 320d's have the same N47T motor, so shouldnt be any different.

RE: Carbon Cleaning a 320d/330d
Glad to have found this. In the near future im planning on doing a swirl flap delete and while the mani is off I'd like to swap out the glow plugs and module too. Im bracing myself for what I think will be the biggest task, removing CBU. But knowing now that the LM product works so well that's reduced my apprehension.
Thinking I should compile a DIY write up and put as much useful information into it as I can.

Tomorrow never stays and yesterday is just a page in the book of life.
Do and enjoy what you wish!
