Default ZD30 De Carbonize

I need some advice.
I've been told by a mechanic mob, that my old motor will run better if I do a de carbonize.
They hook it up to a machine and I guess it blows hell out of the motor,
Any one done this and how did it go ?
My motor runs ok and has done near to 470K
Not sure I want to do it if it's running good.

Never believe life begins at 40, it's actually just a rapid decline to old age LOL

You might consider fuel injector cleaner for the fuel system and a manual clean of the intake manifold.

It's not a race car, running the engine at peak RPM to "decarbonise" it will possibly kill it. I bet they ask you to sign a waiver before doing it, so that if the engine blows up, they can hand it back and go "well it was almost gone anyway".

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
