Fuel System Cleaning

What benefit will I get out of a fuel system cleaning?Simple%20Answers%20Fuel%20System%20Service_s

Well, the dirtier your fuel system is, the bigger the improvement you’ll see in performance and fuel efficiency. But it’s vital not to wait until your engine is running poorly, you’ve wasted hundreds of dollars in gas or maybe even damaged your fuel injectors and catalytic converter.

Look, gasoline is a petroleum-based product and will leave some residue, gum and varnish along the way. Some of that can find its way into your fuel injectors and interfere with their key job. The fuel injectors do just that – inject fuel into your Car or SUV engine. They spray a precise amount of fuel, at a precise time, in a precise pattern, at a precise pressure. When they are dirty this critical precision just isn’t possible. So your Car or SUV engine can run rough. Also carbon deposits build up on valves and in the combustion chamber. Fuel economy suffers and performance is degraded.

These harmful conditions allow excess unburned fuel to pass out through the exhaust to accumulate in the catalytic converter – which can lead to it overheating and failing for drivers. So bad fuel efficiency, poor engine performance and the chance of having to replace expensive fuel injectors and catalytic converters – all potential problems for motorists with dirty Car or SUV fuel systems.

A professional fuel system cleaning in cleans out deposits, fuel injectors and the air induction system. Drivers get optimal power, performance and gas mileage and it helps avoid costly future repairs.

Now I said professional fuel system cleaning: this isn’t just pouring a bottle in the gas tank. Cleaner is added into the fuel system with a special tool attached to a vacuum source and there is some manual scrubbing of the throttle body and air induction system. If you are experiencing a rough idle or unusually poor fuel economy, ask us if a professional fuel system cleaning at Douglas Automotive Repair, Inc is in order.
