    ppl on a few forums on the web say they use brake fluid to decarbonize their engines............sounds like a good way to use old brake fluid rather than throw it away!!!!

    does brake fluid do well with removing carbon?

    anyone able to offer advice on what it will do if used when the engine is running............i'm sure emissions would be bad but will it clean the combustion chamber too?

    many thanks!

    Not a great idea
    actually water and Methyl salicylate ( winter green oil) are more effective at removing carbon deposits.

    thanks - i might have a go at it.

    Good for cleaning the engine maybe - valves & combustion chambers.
