It’s rush hour and traffic is speeding along on the highway. It’s your turn to merge. You step on the gas and the car sputters, the engine revs, and you hardly accelerate at all. It’s a scary situation, and one that you may find yourself in if you neglect a fuel injection cleaning for your car.
Whether your vehicle is an older model or brand new, regular fuel injection cleaning has a number of benefits for your car. Fortunately, we can take care of that for you right here at Xpress Lube, when you come in for an oil change and other scheduled maintenance.
What Is Fuel Injection Cleaning?
Over time, your car’s fuel injection system can get clogged by residue in your gas tank and fuel varnish, and carbon deposits that are found in gas and travel through your car’s fuel system. Your car’s fuel injectors are designed to shoot a fine mist of fuel, which will be ignited by the spark plug and cause your car to run. If that mist isn’t fine enough, or if not enough gas is coming out of the injectors because they are clogged, your car may hesitate or lose power.
XPress Lube uses a multi-step system for fuel injection cleaning, paying special attention to the fuel injectors and air intake system in order to remove carbon deposits. We will also inspect your fuel lines for signs of wear and tear, inspect all the parts of your fuel system,
Let’s look at the many benefits of this regular maintenance for your vehicle.
Better Gas Mileage
Fuel injection cleaning actually saves you money by giving your car better gas mileage. With the right amount of fuel coming out of the injectors, your car will get more power from each mist of gas hitting the spark plugs.
Reduce Air Pollution
With fewer carbon deposits in your engine, your car will run cleaner, reducing the air pollution your vehicle creates every time it runs.
A clean fuel system makes your car run better. When you hit the gas, you’ll really be able to accelerate. You won’t experience any engine hesitation or sputtering as a result of clogged fuel injectors. And when you’re trying to merge into traffic, you’ll know your car will be able to keep pace. You’ll enjoy smoother, more consistent acceleration, higher speeds with less effort, and less engine revving.
Increase Your Car’s Dependability
Regular maintenance is crucial to prevent breakdowns, especially if you are driving an older vehicle. By reducing wear-and-tear on your engine’s parts with a clean fuel injection system, you’ll reduce the likelihood of a costly and inconvenient breakdown.
Prolong Engine Life
When your fuel injectors are clogged and dirty, other parts of your engine have to work harder to do their job. Each time your engine revs, the parts wear down faster. By investing in regular maintenance from Xpress Lube, you’ll save yourself money and stress by prolonging engine life, and reducing the time between maintenance visits.
A fuel injection cleaning is a good investment that will not only prolong the life of the fuel injection system, but of your car’s engine, too.
