Fuel System Treatment and Maintenance

Fuel injection has advanced in cars from the days of clunky, inaccurate carburetors to the fine-tuned equipment that delivers the exact amount of fuel your engine requires. As such, engines nowadays are powerful and efficient, letting you get the optimal performance.

The right fuel system cleaning can do wonders for your vehicle’s performance. If your fuel injectors become clogged and need repairs, you may see reduced power, lower gas mileage and all-around sluggishness. Dirty fuel systems lead to sluggish cars, dirty spark plugs, and low fuel mileage. AutoTec can provide a fuel system checkup for a more fuel-efficient vehicle.

You see, injectors spray fuel through a nozzle into the combustion chamber. Ideally, they spray a fine, cone-shaped mist. But deposits and wear can cause them to spray inefficient streams of fuel into the chamber. These streams burn poorly and can cause hesitation and other performance problems. Fuel injection cleaning involves removing deposits from the injectors and fuel lines, and adding a clean fuel filter to the vehicle.

Dirty fuel and inefficient fuel systems also can lead to more expensive repairs. One of the major causes of premature catalytic converter failure is improper fuel burning. A new catalytic converter can cost thousands. But a bit of preventative maintenance can help you avoid these kinds of costly repairs and system replacements.
