Fuel Injector Cleaning & Fuel Pump Service

Keep your vehicle at its peak performance by making sure your fuel injection system is clean and working properly.

A significant reduction in fuel mileage or noticeable change in a vehicle’s performance may indicate that the vehicle’s fuel injection system needs to be checked and cleaned. The problem may lie in other parts of the fuel system or other parts of the engine, but fuel injectors are usually the first part a technician inspects.

How Do Fuel Injector Problems Occur?

Carbon deposits build up in a vehicle’s fuel system over time, causing clogs and uneven flow of fuel. If the fuel injectors become clogged, the combustion chambers will have insufficient fuel to fire properly, resulting in engine hesitation and other performance problems. Deposits can also form on the throttle body, in the intake manifold, and in the catalytic converter. This accumulation of carbon and sludge can cause a drastic drop in both fuel economy and performance.

The Truth Behind Fuel Additives

Fuel additives are not a solution to clogged fuel injectors. They may help a vehicle improve its performance and mileage temporarily, but cannot remove all of the carbon deposits in other parts of the fuel system. These deposits can loosen and then move through the fuel lines and create new clogs in the fuel injectors. Fuel additive products may claim that they can work wonders on your system, but you need to know that they cannot live up to such claims. The cost of continually adding fuel additives into your vehicle’s gas tank will quickly exceed the cost of a fuel injection system service.
