Problem Solver Checklist

Simply use this checklist to find the most cost effective solution for many common problems faced by vehicle and machinery owners today. Whether it’s yesterday’s technology, or the most modern hi-tech equipment available today, we have low cost solutions to very expensive problems.

Problem Example or Reason
CEM’s Solution
Common Rail Diesel injector problems, blamed on “bad fuel”
Hilux, Landcruiser, Prado, Navara, VW’s, Colorado’s, Hino’s, Isuzu’s, you name it…ALL CRD diesels
CRD Fuel Enhancer
Carbon Fouling of Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) Valve & Inlet Manifold
V8 Landcruiser diesels, Pajero DID’s, Tritons…ALL CRD diesels. Due to excess exhaust soot and crankcase fumes.
FTC Decarbonizer, Flushing Oil Concentrate, CRD Fuel Enhancer
Sludge & filthy oil Series 60 Detroits, old Landcruisers, Hiluxes, Patrols, etc are real problems, but also most any diesel by 100,000kms use will have sludge.
Flushing Oil Concentrate
Diesel Smoke Refer: “Diesel smoke tells YOU a story! FTC Decarbonizer, Flushing Oil Concentrate, CRD Fuel Enhancer
Overheating engine 4.2 Patrol diesels, 2.8L Hiluxes, and many older pre-combustion type diesels. Modern petrol engines now run a lot hotter, and are also prone to bad sludging (Camry V6, VW, Commodores, BMW, Hyundai, etc).
Flushing Oil Concentrate
Power Loss Dirty oil, coked up combustion chamber, carbon weighted turbo, fouled emission equipment, carbon build up in catalytic convertors, diesel particulate filters and mufflers are a few reasons FTC Decarbonizer, Flushing Oil Concentrate, CRD Fuel Enhancer (or Cleanpower)
Blowby Series 60 Detroits, Cummins Signature & ISX engines, Cats on light work, 4×4’s older gummy engines. Plus anything getting a few kms up are usually a bit fouled around the rings, before they get bad wear.
FTC Decarbonizer, Flushing Oil Concentrate
Poor fuel economy Coked up engines & turbos, coked inlets, EGR’s fouled, poor maintenance, sludge, sticking rings, fouled emission controls and more.
FTC Decarbonizer, Flushing Oil Concentrate, CRD Fuel Enhancer (or Cleanpower)
Glazed cylinders Usually due to light duty, excess idling, cold running. Sometimes changing oil type will also glaze.
FTC Decarbonizer, or you can use Flushing Oil Concentrate (if oil related, or vehicle cannot be driven at the moment)
Hard Starting Cold Compression drop from sticky rings, poor fuel atomization, deposits, mechanical reasons, etc
FTC Decarbonizer, Flushing Oil Concentrate, CRD Fuel Enhancer (or Cleanpower)
Diesel Fuel Growths Fungi, algae & bacteria can grow in any diesel to create a slimey growth
FTC Decarbonizer
Notchy Gear changes Manual transmissions in Cars, 4x4s, trucks AW10 Antiwear
Engine rattles and noises Inadequate lubrication due to sludge & carbon Flushing Oil Concentrate, AW10 Antiwear, FTC Decarbonizer to clean up then enhance protection
Dirty fuel pump and injectors Common rail diesels & modern petrols particularly susceptible as well as older types
CRD Fuel Enhancer (or Cleanpower)
Coked up engine & exhaust Prolonged light work, idling or poorly maintained engines FTC Decarbonizer, Flushing Oil Concentrate
Sticking piston rings Older or poorly maintained diesel & Petrol engines Flushing Oil Concentrate
Manual or Auto Gearbox running hot Mitsubishi Pajero automatics. Truck gearboxes and diffs. Dozer final drives
AW10 Antiwear
Noisy hydraulic lifters

We do plenty of Commodores, but really any petrol or diesel engine

 

Flushing Oil Concentrate, AW10 Antiwear
Hydraulics running Hot. Also Automatic Transmissions running hot.

Hard working hydraulics, eg bobcats, excavators, mining shovels.

Pajero automatics are one of the more common for heating up excessively

AW10 Antiwear
“I just want to give it the best protection possible!” So do we! In the long run , it’s cheaper! You get much longer life, better power and economy, fewer repairs and enhanced driving pleasure.

Jimmy and the team treat everyone as a their closest buddy, it's good to feel valued.I absolutely... can't speak highly enough for the products, nothing comes close. The FTC Decorbonizer has save $$$ in diesel engine repairs for friends and family.No wonder the mining industry uses CEM products as part of their maintenence schedule.Yes, I'm a devote regular customer.read more

Will definitely be using CEM for all my vehicles, got the stop smoke pack for my D4D which was... acting a bit sick and blowing smoke at all rpm’s and after a couple tanks smoke is gone and vehicle seems to be more responsive.Thanks guysread more

The best thing I could of ever do for V8 land cruiser as I had bad fuel so water in fuel and... coursed injection nock by googling this products I tried it and problem fixed. I was looking at having to replace my injectors at $5000.00 . So very impressed so thumbs up 👍.read more

Bought Decarbonizer and the Flushing Oil Concentrate to use on my tractor and excavator, sadly a... bit too late for the digger....needs a rebuild. But the tractor was a definite improvement, the engine ran sweeter and a lot less gunk from the exhaust, really noticeable. Thoroughly recommend, the only suggestion is to maybe reconsider the product names....bit confusing. But names are not everything, absolutely worth the money. Many thanksread more

Frankly, I am astounded with the difference. I have been using the FTC Decarbonizer for the last... 1,500k. My mechanic has warned me the engine on my Winnebago Motorhome (Chevy 6.5L turbo diesel, 17 yrs old, 225k on the clock) was exhibiting signs of blow-by. There is now no evidence of smoke from the exhaust under load, the performance has improved, the engine just runs smoother, but incredibly it starts first time after being a difficult starter for several years. I am looking forward to its next service to see what the mechanic has to say. Great product.read more

Forget going to car stores to buy maintenance products. I have been using their engine and... drivetrain lubricants, optimisers, and internal engine cleaners for years, and truly believe there are none better - at any price. Service is terrific, and advice is accurate and helpful. These products are simply the best there are.read more

I have used the AW10 in several cars now. It has made a HUGE difference in all of them. My little... junk Barina that I drive to the train station had a noisy engine and it got hot fast. After using the AW10, it is quiet and the temp takes a while to get to it's working temp. The car runs really well now. All the other cars are running well too.The Rust Conqueror is AMAZING. Works so much better than anything else I have tried. I first saw the XTroll rust treatment way back in the late 80's. It was fantastic back then. Over time I lost the can and moved states. I needed to treat some rust and nothing I used worked properly. I searched for the XTroll and found it with the Cost Effective Maintenance team. They were so helpful. The stuff isn't cheap but it is more than worth it. You want your equipment to last, Use the AW10 and XTroll. Look at the other products too. You won't regret it.read more
