Natural Tune-Up Service: Prepare Your Vehicle for High-Performance in 2023

If you have never heard of a natural tune-up service, this is something Euro Fix provides through our Walnut Shell Blasting service in Langley.

This is a procedure that helps a variety of drivability problems while increasing engine performance. Many high-performance vehicle owners find this understandably important, which BMW heavily promotes in their service and repair information.

So …What is Involved in a Natural Tune-Up Service?

As mentioned, a natural tune-up service is conducted through walnut shell blasting – and as per our service page…

Walnut blasting involves using abrasive walnut shell media to clean carbon deposits off your engine’s intake valves. It can also be used to clean the intake manifold itself. Walnut shell blasting is especially beneficial for late model BMW engines, such as the N54 and N55, which are direct injected.

This service is recommended to address engine performance, as well as concerns such as:

  • Check engine warning light
  • Lack of power
  • Bumpy idle
  • Vibrations
  • Engine misfires
  • Engine oil consumption

All European vehicle models can benefit from walnut shell blasting – including MiniVW and Audi, and others that offer direct fuel injection.

Direct injected BMW engines squirt fuel right into the combustion chamber. As a result, the intake valves (and in many cases, the intake manifold) aren’t washed with fuel the way they are in a port injected engine. This leads to increased carbon build up that can cause the valves to stick open.

We can help with that with walnut shell blasting – a service which is recommended around every 48,000km.
