Simple Answers from West Coast Muffler & Auto Repair for Ukiah: Fuel System Service


What benefit will I get out of a fuel system cleaning?

West Coast Muffler & Auto Repair Answer:

Well, the dirtier your fuel system is, the bigger the improvement you’ll see in performance and fuel efficiency. But it's important not to wait until your engine is running poorly, you’ve wasted hundreds of dollars in gas or maybe even damaged your fuel injectors and catalytic converter.

Look, gasoline is a petroleum-based product and will leave some residue, gum and varnish along the way. Some of that can find its way into your fuel injectors and interfere with their critical job. The fuel injectors do just that – inject fuel into your Automobile engine. They spray a precise amount of fuel, at a precise time, in a precise pattern, at a precise pressure. When they are dirty this critical precision just isn’t possible. So your Automobile engine can run rough. Also carbon deposits build up on valves and in the combustion chamber. Fuel economy suffers and performance is degraded.

These dangerous conditions allow excess unburned fuel to pass out through the exhaust to accumulate in the catalytic converter – which can lead to it overheating and failing for Ukiah auto owners. So bad fuel economy, poor engine performance and the chance of having to replace pricey fuel injectors and catalytic converters – all potential problems for Ukiah motorists with dirty Automobile fuel systems.

A professional fuel system cleaning in Ukiah cleans out deposits, fuel injectors and the air induction system. Ukiah drivers get optimal power, performance and fuel efficiency and it helps avoid expensive future repairs.

Now I said professional fuel system cleaning: this isn’t just pouring a bottle in the gas tank. Cleaner is added into the fuel system with a special tool attached to a vacuum source and there is some manual scrubbing of the throttle body and air induction system. If you are experiencing a rough idle or unusually poor fuel efficiency, ask your helpful West Coast Muffler & Auto Repair technician if a professional fuel system cleaning at West Coast Muffler & Auto Repair in Ukiah is in order.
