FUEL SYSTEM TREATMENT
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
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.
What are fuel
The small openings of fuel injectors make them easy to clog. Dirt particles from the road can damage them. Fuel needs to remain clean and free of dirt to deliver to the engine easily. Fuel filters protect the fuel from dirt. Paper filters are usually thrown away when they become dirty or worn out. Mesh material is sometimes used in car filters. You can wash them and put them back in.Book Appointment

Why is my engine making
bucking sounds when
In case your engine starts giving you problems, check your fuel system first. Clogged fuel filters and damaged fuel pumps are the two most common problems. Not taking care of these will damage your engine.
Fuel pumps cannot deliver gas to an engine with clogged fuel filters. Fuel pumps work harder if the filter is clogged with dirt. As a result, it will wear out.
Clogged fuel filters make it hard for the fuel pump to deliver gas to the engine
