Fuel Injector Cleaning Can Improve Fuel Economy

Deposits from fuel can accumulate on your car’s engine intake valves, injectors, ports, fuel injectors, and combustion chambers. Dirty fuel injectors, one of the most common problems, can cause clogging, which leads to a wide variety of engine problems such as loss of power, rough idle, hesitation, misfire, pinging, knocking and hard starting.

However, one of the biggest problems, which can affect your wallet without you even noticing very easily, includes a drop in fuel economy, inferior performance or even dirty emissions. However, there is a simple way to clean fuel injectors that can result in helping maintain the health of your car, so you can avoid engine problems and improve fuel economy – saving you money in the long run.

Fuel/Air Induction Service Solution

Deposit control additives for your car’s fuel system can safely, rapidly and thoroughly remove engine deposits that naturally build in combustion chambers, intake manifolds, fuel injectors, ports and on intake valves. Your local tire retailer and auto care center can provide a highly effective “on engine” cleaning of the entire fuel system by quickly and efficiently flushing out accumulated deposits. Products that bring extended life and efficiency to engines, transmissions, brakes, steering, cooling, and car air conditioning systems are extremely helpful in properly maintaining these operational systems of today’s cars.

Some tire stores and auto care centers are equipped with the right products and tools using pressurized shop air to flush and clean the air intake and fuel lines. These services make the most noticeable difference on cars that are driven short distances, or have been neglected and have not had regular maintenance. This process will essentially clean out the intake system (throttle plate, valves, mass air flow sensor, piston top) and flush out the fuel injectors. Depending on the condition of your car you may or may not notice a difference after the service is done.

The results of a ASE certified mechanic performing a fuel/air induction service with the right products that are innovative, well made, protective of the environment, and attuned to the task at hand, can help:

  • Clean fuel injectors
  • Clean throttle body
  • Clean plenum and air intake
  • Clean intake valves and ports
  • Correct balance of fuel and air in system

Tire stores and auto service centers can perform this cleaning, which can restore flow in fuel injectors and cleans the entire fuel system. A properly cleaned fuel injection system will improve fuel economy and reduce exhaust emissions. It restores that “like new” drivability to an engine’s performance and keeps it running better, longer and more efficiently, such as:

  • Reduced emissions
  • Restores horsepower
  • Increased fuel economy
  • Starts and idles smooth and runs quieter

If you are experiencing loss of power, rough idle, hesitation, misfire, pinging, knocking, hard starting or loss of mileage and your car has never had a Fuel/Air induction service, take your vehicle to a certified mechanic. It is always a good idea to take it to a professional, such an ASE certified technician at one of your local tire stores. They can use the right three part cleaner process to get this done right.
