Signs You May Need a Fuel System Service

  • Hard Starting
  • Rough Idling
  • Hesitation
  • Knocking
  • Loss of power
  • Poor fuel economy
  • Increased emissions
  • Need for higher octane gas

Strong gas odors are another sign you may need a fuel system service. This often means fuel is leaking due to a faulty fuel injector.

If ever you smell gasoline when operating your vehicle, or if you suspect there may be a malfunction with your fuel system we encourage you to bring your car in immediately for a complimentary, no-obligation fuel system and injector inspection.

Fuel Injector Cleaning

Your vehicle’s fuel system and injector are responsible for ensuring gasoline gets from the fuel tank to the engine. From the gas tank, the fuel injectors supply gasoline to the fuel filter, then finally to the engine. The fuel system also has a pressure regulator that maintains fuel pressure to help the engine perform correctly under varying load conditions and speeds.

Over time, your fuel system can become dirty or worn down due to several reasons including:

  • Your vehicle’s age
  • Poor fuel economy
  • Type of fuel
  • Mileage

Eventually, deposits from burning fuel will build up and affect the fuel injector’s performance. When this happens, you may begin to experience decreased fuel efficiency, failed emissions tests, poor idling, and rough engine performance.

Avoid Issues with a Fuel System Service

Regular fuel injector cleaning and fuel system service will help your vehicle perform more efficiently, increase the lifespan of your car, improve your engine’s performance, and reduce your carbon footprint.
