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.


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)


Series 60 Detroits, Cummins Signature & ISX engines, Cats on light work, 4x4’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.
