The network of DPF cleaning and engine decarbonizing specialists has seen its numbers grow to more than 500 locations throughout UK and Ireland and looks set to grow further with an active marketing campaign this year.
Award-winning engine decontamination specialist EDT Automotive has battled through its toughest-ever month as the effects of the coronavirus hit home hard. Trouble flared when their invoice factoring provider blocked access to funds without notice. “We were trading at only around 30 per cent of our agreed facility,” said EDT founder and managing director David Holmes. “Yet we suddenly couldn’t access our own funds.
Randstad Ltd, authorised distributors of the TerraClean brand, has launched a new TerraClean Engine Treatment, designed to complement its intensive engine decarbonising service. The company states that the new 354ml pour-in product reduces friction and engine wear while increasing power and fuel economy.
Last week’s Automechanika proved to be “invaluable” for EDT Automotive, as the award-winning engine decontamination specialist signed up eight garages live on the stand over the course of the three-day event, with more to follow-up on. The automotive aftermarket exhibition offered the EDT team a unique opportunity to interact with garage owners from locations right across the UK and Ireland. With the engine decontamination machine on hand for demonstration purposes, EDT states that its stand was “a hive of activity”.
Pictures of a broken timing chain tensioner, extracted during an EDT Automotive engine clean, reveal the hidden contaminants lurking in our engines. The fragments were caught in the EDT engine cleaning machine’s filter, which is renowned for collecting up to half a litre of black sludge containing carbon, metallic particles and other contaminants.
Randstad, UK distributors of TerraClean, recently hosted a unique one-off event to help develop the brand, giving away over £10,000 worth of services.

It is a creeping process. Over the course of years the engine loses more and more of its performance. Its fuel consumption goes up, as do its emissions values. The fault lies with deposits on the inside of the engine that impede combustion. Liqui Moly says its Injection Cleaner helps in gasoline engines.
Following its recent relocation, award-winning engine decarbonising specialist EDT Automotive has increased the size of its premises at the company’s purpose-built site in Kent.

Following on from EDT Automotive’s debut at Automechanika Birmingham 2018, the award-winning engine decontamination specialist has signed a further five garages after the event, taking the total of machines placed up to 14.
EDT Automotive says that Barton Garages has achieved “incredible results” with its range of engine decontamination machines, becoming the EDT network’s highest performing garage-partner since joining in January. According to company co-director Tracey Barton, the Yelverton-based workshop was seeing an increasing number of customer vehicles which were suffering from a high concentration of carbon build-up, putting their engines under undue strain.
Graham Lange, proprietor of Horton Cars in Buckinghamshire has put EDT’s automatic transmission machine through its paces, declaring himself “astonished” by the results. The independent Volvo specialist said the machine helps ease the removal of oil from automatic gearboxes, usually a tricky process. Lange explains: “Using the EDT machine you can remove all of the oil from the gearbox, cleaning out every last little bit in there. That’s simply not possible by draining the oil and replacing it: even if you flush it two or three times you won’t get the same result that you do with the EDT machine.”
Engine decontamination specialist, EDT Automotive – now in its fifth year of trading – is looking to replicate its runaway success within the English market in Scotland for 2018. Having already treated over 45,000 vehicles since the company launched, according to founder David Holmes, things are now gathering pace north of the border: “Ian Stubbs, our regional director for the North, joined at the start of the year and our first machine (in Scotland) went live just before Christmas. Since then we have had enquiries from Scottish garages who have heard about our machine and what we do.
