Is it my imagination or is someone is playing tricks on me?.
I bought some FTC decarboniser and the fuel
Injector Crd cleaner.
The turbo lag has gone, if not, it's hardly noticeable anymore...
WTF!!!!
Plant the right paw from a full stop and the Paj takes off like a scoldered cat..
No playing with the sports shift..just in plain D for drag..
I've been using the CRD cleaner for about 12 months, the FTC about 2 months in 3 tanks..
It seems to start quicker..
I haven't done any real fuel economy stuff..
It's a fraction quieter at idle..
It might be my hearing going..
But the pickup from a standing position, now that's been noticeable for me as an improvement.
Interesting...

Has anybody used or heard reports of " Cost Effective Maintenance " products. http://www.costeffective.com.au/Prod.../aw10-antiwear.
I was getting extremely high trans temps. Thought this might help.
Have done a full trans flush. Then fitted a PWR trans cooler. Biggest I could get.
I just copied this from my post in the NT page.
I was hoping somebody has used the AW10 anti wear in their transmission
Thanks.

Hey Joffa,

At my last service, I got the AW10 added to my 2010 NT, 3.2 CRD, manual transmission and engine by the mechanic.

I don't know my transmission temps, but it's been 3 months and almost 5000 klms and the transmission is smooth, right from cold now.

When cold used to be a bit notchy 2nd to 3rd. Now just smooth all the time.

Engine sounds smoother, but then I run the CEM FTC decarboniser & CRD enhancer at least every 3-4 weeks. Been doing this for the last 10 months.

I can definately hear the difference in the engine when I add the dose of CRD enhancer.

I'm averaging 9L/100km economy (city cycle) mostly Redcliffe to Brisbane.

Very happy with their products.

Guy

Just a question...

With the AW10 added to the engine oil:

Have you noticed a few changes...
1/.Like the motor feels like it is reving faster?
2/.It is quieter, quicker and smoother on start up..
3/. quieter on cruise or around town travel..

Long story short, I got some "CEM Oil flush left in from the last oil change..anyway, today...
I noticed motor revs quicker and the diesel engine noise is far more less...
A bloke passed me in a car park driving a 2015 Diesel Prado, it sounded noisy..

Hi Peterng,

1. Haven't noticed, but feels smoother

2. Yep, have noticed that.

3. Slightly quieter overall more noticeable on highway runs.

When I put the CRD fuel enhancer in the tank, engine purrs

Default Cost Effective Maintenance FTC DECARBONIZER

My mistake..I should have worded my questions better...


With no 1..
Have you noticed more flexibility in the rev range.
The rev needle moves quicker through the rev range... goes from say 1200rpm to 4200rpm quicker.


With No 2..
Does the engine seem to start quicker first up and the typical noise of the engine getting proper oil pressure is not as harsh.
As it was before the adding of the AW10.

What ratio are you using when adding the fuel enhancer?
cheers

Hi Peterng,

1. Yep, definitely revs "easily", doesn't feel "bogged" down. Pulls well. My engine is std and std exhaust, no chips etc.

2. Starts quicker and no harsh noises. Before the AW10, sounded like it took a little while for the oil to circulate.

Cheers mate, sorry I wasn't clear the first time,.

Hi Dicko,

Every 3-4 weeks I use 10 mls of the CRD enhancer mixed with 40 mls of the FTC Decarbonsier. Probably a bit conservative but it works.

When I do a long run in rural/remote areas, I use 20 mls per tank of the FTC Decarboniser and every 2nd fill, will add 10 mls of the CRD enhancer. I chatted to CEM and they advised me that the FTC is also good as a fuel conditioner (anti-fungal etc).

Cheers

Guy
