CRC Industries Launches New Aftermarket Top Engine Cleaner

Press release date: Oct 16, 2012

New concentrated combustion chamber and induction system cleaner from CRC removes harmful engine deposits to relieve and prevent performance problems

WARMINSTER, Pa.,  -- CRC Industries, Inc., a chemical specialties manufacturer for the automotive, marine, heavy trucking, electrical, industrial and hardware markets, has introduced CRC TOP ENGINE CLEANER, an aftermarket top end cleaner available for professional automotive technicians and do-it-yourselfers.

"Today's vehicles are designed to recirculate exhaust gas which reduces emissions but also causes harmful carbon deposits to form," says Adam Selisker, CRC vice president of Technology.  "Those carbon deposits collect on intake manifolds and intake valves, and on built-up gum and varnish residue in the engine. If left untreated, this can lead to performance problems such as engine pinging or knocking, increased fuel consumption, rough idling and power loss."

"Several OE manufacturers carry a top end cleaner, but CRC saw the need for this type of product in the aftermarket," explains Selisker. "Now more than ever, with today's higher gas prices and the dirty fuels we're running through our engines, it's important to properly maintain your vehicle and clean out the engine in between regular service intervals to maximize efficiency and power. You don't want to wait until there's a problem or until vehicle performance and fuel economy are sacrificed."

Using the attached extension tube, CRC Top Engine Cleaner is sprayed directly into the throttle body while the engine is idling at around 2,000 RPMs. Once the entire can has been dispensed, the engine should be turned off and the chemical allowed to heat-soak for 15-20 minutes. When the engine is restarted, the vehicle will dispel white smoke through the exhaust. The vehicle should be driven until that white smoke disappears.

Selisker says, "For the best results, we recommend that you change the oil and oil filter after running a top engine cleaner through your engine."

CRC TOP ENGINE CLEANER is available through automotive wholesale distributors and retailers.
