Does your vehicle idle roughly while you’re sitting in traffic? Is your gas mileage lower than in previous months or does your engine hesitate when you’re accelerating? Does it have a pinging or knocking sound? These and other symptoms could be trying to tell you that your car is in need of a fuel system cleaning.
The fuel system in your car is made up of fuel injectors, intake ports and valves, combustion chambers, a throttle body and the intake manifold. When dirt and deposits get into any of these areas, it can lower your fuel economy, lessen your car’s performance and interfere with the proper operation of your engine. These deposits are a result of burning gasoline and should be removed on a regular basis. If deposits are allowed to build up in the combustion chamber and intake valves without regular cleanings, your engine’s compression is altered. This can cause rough idling, engine stalling or hesitation, loss of power or engine knocking, or engine run-on when the car is turned off.
Once you have determined that your vehicle needs a fuel system cleaning, one of our technicians will attach cleaning tools to the fuel system that will clean deposits from the fuel injectors and remove deposit build-up from the intake valves and the combustion chambers. Deposits are also removed from the air intake system, including the throttle body and intake manifold. The fuel system cleaning services the existing parts in the engine so they run like they were brand new. It is usually recommended that you have a fuel system cleaning every 36,000 miles to keep your car running at it’s best.
