How Tec4 Diesel System Cleaner Works
- Once injected into the fuel tank, the Tec4 Diesel system cleaner gets straight to work cleaning your fuel pump.
- As the diesel system cleaner makes its way through the fuel injector, it begins to clean and remove any contamination that has built up.
- When it enters the chamber it atomizes into a fine gas cleaning the Inlet valves, exhaust valves & piston rings.
- Then the product exits the combustion chamber, it cleans and removes the contamination that has built up on the lambda sensor and EGR valve.
- All the contamination is then safely removed through the exhaust.
- The result is a clean fuel system that is 100% efficient.
