Taking care of your car is part of responsibly owning a car and keeping up with the scheduled maintenance can help you save money long-term. You can do so many things to keep your car working properly and extend its life. Besides the scheduled car maintenance, a fuel injection service could be very beneficial to your car.
What is a Fuel Injection Service?
With time, carbon can deposit from burning gas and can cause build-up layers on your car’s fuel injectors and fuel system. A fuel injection service can clean all of this disgusting build-up and flush it out of your car’s fuel system.
You want to think of these services as using baking soda and vinegar in your dishwasher to get rid of all the grease or going for teeth cleaning to the dentist to remove tartar. A fuel injection service will get rid of all the carbon buildup/deposits and flush them out.
What Does a FIS Looks Like?
At Sudden Impact Auto, our fuel injection service consists of pouring a fuel-injector chemical right into the fuel tank. This will significantly improve the power and driveability of your car.
For a more thorough clean, we have a chemical that will take care of the rails as well as the fuel injectors.
To finish, our preferred method is to immerse the tips of the fuel injector in a bath of ultrasonic cleaner while running the injector flow. This is the most effective way to clean it. It allows us to see the spray of the fuel injector as well as testing the flow before and after cleaning. When we do this we actually remove the fuel injectors from the engine.
Who Needs Fuel Injection Service?
Anybody who owns and drives a car that is from the 1990s to 2017. So, pretty much everybody.
When Does My Car Need a FIS?
Your car will need a fuel injection service every 60,000 to 90,000 miles. If your car’s odometer reads between 60,000 and 90,000 miles or from 120,000 to 180,000 miles, you need to get this kind of service. Especially if your goal is for your car to be with you for a long time.
If you happen to notice a drop in your fuel economy, or your car feels sluggish or is lacking in power when you accelerate, these are all signs that there is carbon buildup in your car’s fuel system.
Benefits of a FIS
There a number of benefits your car can enjoy from a fuel injection service, including:
- Save money by improving gas mileage
- Reduce your carbon footprint by reducing your car’s emissions
- Increase your car’s life by restoring and protecting your car’s performance
