In the last article we discussed different types of fuel injection systems and the symptoms of a vehicle with a poor working fuel injection system. While fuel delivery and mixing systems haven't changed over the years, byproducts of gasoline remain the same. In fuel injection systems the small nozzles that are used to atomize the fuel DO need to be kept clean.

There are various types of fuel injection cleaning services and products on the market. Some of them are "fluff" and are not really effective. Many of these are the over the counter products such as fuel tank additives, where the dilution varies based on the amount of fuel in your tank.

Professional, effective fuel injection services will include:

An overall inspection of the fuel system including the ability of the fuel pump to produce the pressure specified to operate the injectors.

Cleaning of the throttle body and a method of "flushing or washing out" small particles and varnish that build up or lodge in the injector.

This carbon clean service should clean the air intake, and fuel system clear thru the exhaust.

Industrial equipment and cleaning products are critical for effective results of:

Repairing drive ability problems such as hesitations, hard starts, rough idling or lack of power.

Reduce harmful emissions and smoke opacity.

Restore fuel economy.

Restore "New Car" performance.

Extend fuel system component life.

A professional fuel cleaning service is highly recommended every 20,000 to 30,000 miles. This will help to optimize the longevity and performance of your vehicle's fuel system. Happy Motoring!
