Sourced and replaced a part for me a lot cheaper than and more convenient than all the garage quotes I got , work was done at the highest standard and also advised me on after care.I could not recommend this guy more a pleasure to deal with thank you.
This is the first person I’ve called that actually knows what he’s talking aboutFixed the limp mode on my sprinter van and now I’m back to work. Thank you very much. I’ll certainly call you again with any issues on my vehicles again. Fixed within 12 hours of my enquiries tooAmazingThank you
5 star � plus. After one phone call yesterday Bernie appeared today like a knight in a shinny van. He quickly identified the problems and before I knew it Bernie had sorted it.Thank you so much the cars ruining like a dream now. Highly recommend A1 Terraclean and will definitely be using again in the future, thanks again
Just had Bernie out to repair my car. Had engine management light on, also engine malfunction light. Car was in limp mode. Bernie diagnosed the problem and repaired within two hours. Lovely man that explains exactly what was wrong. Would recommend A1 Terraclean to anyone having problems with there dpf. Thanks for great service......
Thanks Bernie, originally I was quoted £2,500 for a new DPF from my dealership for a new one! But was advised to get in touch with Bernie as he would be able to help! I am chuffed to bits with the customer service we received and value for money! Came out straightaway and very informative! Thanks again!x
My scirocco went into limp mode due to dpf problems and I was beginning to loose all hope with it but A1 sorted the problem with no bother at all definitely recommend them and will be using them again �
I can’t recommend Bernie enough. Not only is he excellent at engine and DPF cleaning, he also helps identify any problems that might cause problems in the future. He’s a really nice gentleman as well, he didn’t mind me sending numerous messages about my car and was always polite and prompt with his replies. Yesterday he went out of his way to fit me in on a busy Sunday afternoon when I was having problems with my car, thanks Bernie, much appreciated!!!
We had our BMW 320i and 335d 'Terracleaned' last week by Bernie, who performed an Induction + Engine clean on the 320i and an EGR/Turbo + Engine clean on the 335d. Bernie noticed a misfire with the 320i after the job was finished, and suggested replacing the spark plugs, which was a good call as the spark plugs in the car weren't the correct type. Since the Terraclean / Spark plug change the car is completely transformed, with a massive increase in MPG. Motorway MPG is up from 42 to 52 and street driving has gone up from 25 to 34. It picks up speed better and any niggles I had before are now gone. As for the 335d, I immediately noticed that Turbo spool up was quicker, so the power comes in sooner and stronger. As for the MPG, it was pretty good before, getting about 48mpg on the motorway and 28mpg around town, but now I am getting about 5mpg more. I'd strongly recommend getting your car Terracleaned if you've just purchased a new, higher miles vehicle where you're unsure how well it's been looked after in the past... I intend on getting my cars Terracleaned every 2 years in order to maintain the benefits I'm noticing.
Cannot recommend the Terraclean service enough. I saved over £1000 on a main dealer recommendation for new DPF by having a clean which will offer me at least another 20,000 miles before needing a replacement filter. Thanks again.
Highly reccomended, phoned Bernie today, 05-06-17, he arrived at agreed time and, with the minimum of fuss, quickly diagnosed the problem on my 2.0lt Mondeo tdci. Problem sorted very swiftly even though it was raining and he was working outside. Knowing the sort of labour costs garages charge, all I can say is that I was very pleasantly surprised when presented with the bill. Knowledgable, friendly service at a very fair price. Thankyou Bernie.
Booked in today for egr and turbo clean on mk4 golf gt 130 as turbo was overboosting.Bernie came checked turbo and fault codes and said it only needs a normal clean.He was a pleasure to deal with and is vastly experienced he explained in detail every check he done.Excellent result no over boost, throttle response and engine runs smoother. Getting 6 mpg more aswell.Excellent service
DPF removal and clean on my Ford Focus 1.6TDCIDue to my poor MPG (43 average) and the car going into limp mode i spoke to Bernie, he told me the DPF would be totally clogged with ash. He took the car away to carryout the DPF clean.When i got it back it was like driving a different car, since i have had it back my average MPG is now 63. Great service and highly recommended.Thanks.
Bernie came to my home and did a clean on my 2010 Seat Leon FR. The process was straightforward from a customer point of view.Additionally Bernie helped me with some fault diagnosis on my turbo whilst he was here; potentially saving me a large amount of money had I taken it into a garage. Highly recommend A1 Terraclean, customer service at its best and Bernie is a genuine guy with a good bit of crack about him.
I was given dodgy information from a garage charging me for regenerations which they didn't do and trying to charge me £1250 for a new DPF. A1 TerraClean came out, arrived early and had the faulty sensor replaced rapidly. 5* service and no messing about. Polite, friendly and genuine service I would strongly recommend and will be using again in the future if the need arises. Thank you
Well I had looked in some detail of the TERRACLEAN SERVICE so last week decided to get my local agent Bernie to cast his magic wand over my 2004 SPRINTER VAN with 250.000 miles on clock...even though the engine was mechanically sound it struggled to achieve 65mph on roads.WOOOOOOWWWW .... MY VAN IS NOW DRIVING MINT !! PULLS LIKE A TRAIN...I CANT BELIEVE THAT AFTER ONE HOUR HOOKED UP TO BERNIES EQUIPMENT THAT THE TRANSFORMATION IS JUST.... STUNNING !! HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SERVICE.
Bernie is a very knowledgeable mechanic, he found the problem very quickly and fixed it on the spot, I also had the Terraclean and the van is sounding and running much better. I will be using this service every year now.
Got my focus 2.o tdci done on 94 k miles and must admit was always sceptical about it but glad i took the leap. Definately made an improvement on tickover, performance and overall sound note has changed also. Feels a lot better to drive. Even cleared the fault and regen codes. Would definately recommend it if your old plugger is up on the miles and feeling lumpy. Happy 🙂
Absolutely fantastic, I was having major problems with my Lexus, had new dpf fitted and it was still pluming embarrassing vast amounts of smoke, constantly getting it taken off and cleaned!! Then Burnie came and sorted it all, so incredibly knowledgeable and genuine lovely guy!!! Would give 10 stars!! Saved me a fortune!! Now drives like a dream not a puff of smoke!! And so much better on fuel consumption!!!! My dad had his car done as well and he says it's driving like a new car, it has power he didn't know it had!!!! Also better on fuel consumption!! Really impressed!!!
Just been out in the car after having it terracleaned today. Initial observations are a noticeable improvement in throttle response and reduction of engine noise. Very happy so far. Highly recommended. 2012 porsche cayenne hybrid. Thanks.
Had my freelander 2 cleaned . It sounds , moves and reacts faster ... I had tried cleaning fluid through the fuel tank many times before, this is the business. Looking forward to see if the fuel economy comes with it. Also very polite, punctual guy. Thank you
Absolutely amazing!!!! This guy knows his stuff!!! Was contemplating getting rid of my BMW X3 due to airmass faults and not running correctly! And like magic this guy sourced what was causing the air mass fault isolated to double check then fixed the problem and done a full clean and I feel like I've got a brand new car!!! Very impressed and would highly recommend to EVERYONE!!!! Worth every penny!!! Thank you again
Bernie is very friendly and helpful. My car just had the terraclean done and can honestly feel a great difference smoother more power and i only tested a small time but better Mpg!Would highly recommend A1 terraclean Top job!!
Had terraclean done on our astra and peugeot back in September the results are just unbelievable astra 59reg with around 29000 on clock is running like new. The pug 206 1.4 hdi with 106000 had the full treatment and the results are fantastic feels like a new engine as been dropped in ran it dry and we are getting 750 miles on a tank of fuel mostly motorway. All in all fantastic would recommend this to everyone who wants to keep their cars tip top thanks bernie, will be booking both cars in again next year
Had this done a week ago then pulled a caravan can't believe the difference getting more miles to gallon now pulling caravan than before without caravan totally over the moon thank you Bernie well recommended
Had loads of problems with my dpf on a movano 2.5 cdti. Spent a fortune,Got a 2nd opinion off Bernie, told me to get a dpf sensor (£35) then did a dpf wash. Amazing, no more lights on the dash or limp mode. The man knows his stuff, can't recommend him enough. Thanks Bernie, saved me a fortune, last place told me to replace my dpf for £1000!!!!
EGR Valves are well known for getting clogged up with carbon often blocking or sticking!
Did you know that the Turbo also gets clogged the same way and impairs its operation?
In Variable Vanes Turbos (VNT) the carbon build up causes desired boost pressures not being met properly, causing poor air fuel ratios which increases the soot produced during combustion, so the problem accelerates itself.
Terraclean have produced a tool that can clean the full system including EGR, Connecting pipework, EGR Cooler and the Turbo restoring the proper function of all the components, it is advised to clean the full system because just cleaning the egr does not give a lasting result as the soot will build back up quickly.
