KIA Carnival Saved by GTO

GTO saved a Kia Carnival today from producing black smoke and from noisy and heavy engine performance due to friction and compression cylinder leak. It's a 2.9liter diesel engine,

We needed 3 units of 250ml bottles GTO. GTF booster formula is also added to purge the carbon deposits much faster.

The van was already scheduled for an injector cleaning and calibration but we saved it from expensive and unnecessary maintenance routine by simply using GTO.

The Kia Carnival will be heading for Davao early morning via Danao, Leyte, Surigao then proceed to Davao land trip. This van was already driven from Bulacan in Luzon.

The smoke vanished! as in ZERO! Unfortunately we were not able to shoot a video of it, the cellphone camera was also limited in memory to cover this.

The Bad Diesel Exhaust smell also vanished...., We literally sniffed the tail pipe to detect any sign of diesel toxic fumes... (just to find if there is still that old diesel smell) but no trace of diesel fuel smell. We rev the engine to 2000rpm (typical driving rpm at 60km/h to 70km/h ) for several seconds, no smoke. We rev it to 4000rpm for several seconds, still no smoke.

Car Type, year model etc.: Kia Carnival

Before GTO:
Engine overhauled last year.
Changed Oil two weeks ago, shell diesel engine oil.
Very heavy and noisy engine with super black smoke. You won't see the back of the vehicle when you rev the engine, everything is black smoke. Idling is not smooth. Professional Mechanic recommended it for injector recalibration to solve black smoke issue.

After GTO:
Idling sound was smoothened and the engine rpm was smooth and consistent.
No more black smoke, a lot better engine performance.

Feedback after a period of time (weeks, months, years)
Newly treated with GTO, but the engine need no recalibration of the injectors anymore.

Will recommend GTO to friends and relatives in Bulacan.

From Bulacan, only passing Cebu for a trip to Davao.

The Kia Carnival is on its way to Davao by now, worry free driving now!.. no more smoke!

Notes to ponder

NASA claims that the government could slow down worldwide global warming by cutting down on soot emissions. Studies by NASA show that cutting down on soot would not only have an immediate cooling effect, but would also put a stop to many of the deaths caused by air pollution. When soot is formed, it typically travels through the air absorbing and releasing solar radiation which in turn begins to warm the atmosphere. Cutting soot emissions would be an immediate help against global warming, as the soot would quickly fall out of the atmosphere and begin to cool it down.

Cutting back on soot emissions would buy us time in our fight against global warming. Soot is caused by the partial burning of fossil fuels, wood and vegetation. Soot is known to contain over forty different cancer causing chemicals, and a complete cut would offer untold health benefits worldwide.

Environmental conservation has always been a topic for lengthy discussions, but up until recent times, global warming and climate changes were vague subjects, with no hard proof. Not surprisingly, the previous lack of attention to these issues have created a very gloomy outlook on our future. So, considering all this, what could be the biggest contributor to climate changes through global warming? Transportation - the man-made iron horses, flying machines and sea monsters, so to speak.

The question we have now is how green is our transportation? The majority of the worlds' vehicles are fueled by oil (petrol, diesel and kerosene). Even if they rely on electricity, the stations used to generate this electricity use fossil fuels for power! Excluding vehicle manufacture, transportation is responsible for 14% of the artificially created greenhouse emissions, mostly carbondioxide.

Automobiles, trains and planes are all responsible for this problem, but cars are the highest impact-makers. They release approximately six times more carbondioxide than a plane and seven times more than sea vessels.

What is Air Pollution?

Air pollution is somewhat difficult to define because many air pollutants, at low concentrations, are essential nutrients for the sustainable development of ecosystems. So, air pollution could be defined as:A state of the atmosphere, which leads to the exposure of human beings and/or ecosystems to such high levels or loads of specific compounds or mixtures thereof, that damage is caused. With very few exceptions, all compounds that are considered air pollutants have both natural as well as human-made origins.

Air pollution is not a new phenomenon; in Medieval times, the burning of coal was forbidden in London while Parliament was in session. Air pollution problems have dramatically increased in intensity as well as scale due to the increase in emissions since the Industrial Revolution.
