More about Your Fuel System
The right fuel system cleaning can do wonders for your vehicle’s
performance. Dirty fuel systems lead to sluggish cars, dirty spark plugs,
and low fuel mileage. Christian Brothers Automotive provides a fuel system
checkup for a more fuel-efficient vehicle.
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.
Don’t wait for your fuel system problem to turn into a headache. Contact Christian Brothers Automotive today.
Q. "Why is my engine making bucking sounds when I drive?"The fuel system is a good place to investigate first whenever your engine starts to give you problems. The two most common issues we see are clogged fuel filters and damaged fuel pumps. Both of these will harm your engine if not taken care of promptly.
Q. "What are fuel filters?"Fuel injectors are easily clogged due to their small openings. They are susceptible to the dirt particles that your car drives through on the road. It’s important that the fuel remains clean and free of dirt so that it can be easily sent to the engine. The fuel filters ensure the fuel is protected from dirt. Typically, filters are made from a paper material that is thrown away and replaced when it becomes too dirty or worn out. Sometimes, cars will have filters that use a mesh material. These can be washed and then put back in the vehicle.
Q. "How do fuel filters affect the fuel pump?"Clogged fuel filters make it hard for the fuel pump to deliver gas to the engine. If the filter is blocked with dirt, the pump has to work a lot harder to pump the fuel. This will cause it to wear out and unable to perform over time.
