As the engine runs, piston and lube rings get covered in carbon and soot fouling (slash). This kind of plaque makes it hard for them to move, making it harder to prevent oil from getting into the combustion chambers and creating compression. Different products are developed for coke removal. We have studied customer reviews, as well as product specifications, and present to you a rating of the best means for cracking piston rings. This will help you choose a product by quality and price, as well as by the way it is used on the car.

Shumma EX Engine Conditioner
First place in the ranking is a product from the Japanese manufacturer Mitsubishi, which is recommended for the entire lineup of this brand. The de-icing agent is supplied in a pressurized can with a tube for easy pouring into the spark plug wells. The consistency of the substance resembles foam. It is blown into the cylinders, and the holes are closed with old candles. Buyers in the reviews like that it acts quickly enough and you have to wait about 30 minutes. The combustion chamber is cleaned completely, including the piston rings and walls. Just shake the can a little bit before applying the. True, after starting the engine, there is a very thick smoke, so the raskoksovki procedure should be carried out only outdoors, not in the garage.
Our experts put the Japanese product on the first place in the ranking, because the casing fluid penetrates deeply into the parts and cleans the piston rings even from the back side, significantly increasing their mobility. More reviews show that it does not harm the paint in the sump, unlike other products that lift the top layer of coating in the crankcase.
- engine revs up better;
- At 2000-3000 the traction is higher;
- After use, there is still some product left for preventive application;
- compression increases.
- The tube from the kit is short, it is better to buy a longer one separately;

Next in the ranking is a detoxifying agent from the domestic manufacturer. It is available in 185 ml and 330 ml bottles with a syringe and a tube for easy pumping into the engine. A second bottle is enough for engines with the volume of more than 2 liters. The creators of the product that detoxifies piston rings, claim to have already sold 4000000 units. The fluid has a sparse consistency and is poured through nozzle or spark plug compartments. It restores power and increases the life of the powertrain. In their reviews, drivers say that after undergoing the de-carbonizing procedure, the engine starts much easier, despite the downtime of the night. This chemical is actively used in the cars made in 1994-1995 and they can do without major repairs for a while.
Product for cracking rings in the piston system got into the rating because of the affordable price compared to imported counterparts. Due to its high fluidity the product is suitable for V-shaped motors or for carrying out the procedure on a vehicle standing on a slope. If there is a cavity in the bottom of the piston, the product will flow into it.

Continues the rating Tomsk development “Grinol reanimator. This product for de-carbonation with high activity. It safely removes the soot, cleans piston rings, restores their mobility (if they are stuck) and helps the oil flow back into the crankcase. The product is available in a plastic bottle, so it can be ordered by mail on the Internet, as the container will not be damaged even with careless delivery. The substance is effective in “eating” grease up to 200 ml per every 1000 km of mileage. the paper box contains detailed instructions and the buyers share that the descaler procedure can be easily performed in the garage without assistance of specialists.
The product has a remarkable volume of 450 ml, which is 1.exceeds the offers of other manufacturers by 5-2 times, for which the agent is placed in the rating. Such a container is advantageous for car repair shops, which regularly carry out the procedure of internal combustion engine rings detoxification. One bottle is enough for two engines, the volume of 1.5 liters, so you can buy the product for two with a neighbor who has the same problem.

GZOX INJECTION CARB CLEANER
In the top 5 was a Japanese piston system decompression cleaner, available in the form of a mousse. It is dispensed through a thin tube. Permitted for carburetors, fuel system cleaning, motorcycle internal combustion engines, injection units. The container contains 300 ml of the substance. The product improves the engine’s responsiveness after use. The manufacturer recommends using it every 10000 km, in order to postpone major repairs. to clean the fuel system, the agent can be fed through the throttle valve.
In our opinion, the auto chemical has earned a place in the ranking of the best detoxification products, due to its instant action. It begins to remove coke from the first minutes of application and will have to wait 5-6 minutes maximum (just to wrap the plugs / coils and connect the high-voltage wires). This is a great option when you do not have time to wait 30-60 minutes. It is possible to hold the container at any angle for spraying, which is important in case of a complicated shape of the engine with irregular location of wells.

There is a rolled up tube under the lid of the can for this purpose. Auto-chemicals are safe for rubber seals and oxygen sensors. It will not damage the catalytic converters behind the lambda probe. Reviews show that the product does its job well. Another plus that buyers like is the economical flow rate – 5 seconds of supply to each “pot”. This amounts to enough cleaner for up to 5 four-cylinder engines.
This product is worthy of a place in the rating of the best, because it is suitable for internal combustion engines that run on both gasoline and diesel fuel. It is rare among foam type preparations. Fast-acting compound is designed for stale coke on rings and pistons from diesel fuel, so it will be of interest to owners of these types of vehicles.

Designed to be fed directly into the combustion chamber through a vacuum hose by a medical dropper with a dispenser, but the plugs and oil do not need to be changed after that, which customers like in reviews. nothing goes down into the crankcase – it all burns out and exits through the manifold into the muffler. After the treatment it is enough to drive 5 km or to stop on the spot so that the swollen soot is burnt and you can see the translucent smoke coming out of the exhaust.
The special development of this product for removing the soot from piston rings in the piston system is for Russian gasoline. The Belgian company took samples from different regions, in order to create a product exclusively for fighting with oils and impurities present in the domestic fuel. After a thorough study of the chemical analysis of gasoline, the company developed a unique formula.
