Fuel Injection Service

 

Since you purchased your new vehicle, dirt, varnishes and carbon deposits have been forming on the fuel injectors, valves, combustion chamber, throttle housing and the air induction intake. These build ups can rob your vehicle of performance, and if left untreated, these build ups can lead to costly repairs.

Symptoms related to carbon build up are:

  • engine pinging

  • hesitation

  • poor acceleration

  • lack of power

  • hard starting and stalling 

  • rough idle

  • poor fuel economy

Our Fuel System Cleaning is a revolutionary new process that will clean your vehicle's fuel system and remove harmful carbon deposits. Our system uses a detergent that soaks into the carbon, and softens it, so while running through the process the deposits are passed through the exhaust. The solution will not damage your vehicle's sophisticated engine components.

 

After our Fuel System Cleaning cleans your engine, you will notice improved performance, acceleration and increased fuel economy.

 

The Automotive Maintenance and Repair Association recommends performing this service every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. Cleaning your vehicle's fuel system is the best way to keep it driving as it should.

 

Let one of our ASE certified technicians perform this service for you today.

 

 

How do you know

when your fuel

injector is bad?
 

A faulty fuel injector will usually result in the vehicle having a misfire on that specific cylinder. There are several ways to check if it is bad, one of them being to remove it and do a flow test on it. This requires hooking it up to a special machine that will simulate the conditions the fuel injector is under when it is installed in the vehicle.

Fuel System Service

Today’s fuel injected vehicles rely on a clean source of fuel more than ever before.  Some low cost fuel stations don’t have the cleaning agents added to their fuel that the major fuel stations do.  Dirty fuel injectors can really cause some problems like reduced fuel economy, hesitation, rough idle, a hard start, sticky throttle, and failed emissions among other problems.  Your fuel system needs to be maintained in order to keep system pressure at proper operating levels, fuel filters should be changed regularly, and fuel injectors should be professionally cleaned if any of these symptoms should occur.  Our fuel injection cleaning service includes cleaning deposits from fuel injectors,  cleaning carbon deposits on the backs of the intake valves and the combustion chamber, as well as cleaning the air intake passages in the air intake throttle body.  This is achieved by disconnecting the vehicles fuel supply system and running the vehicle on a machine with  a special cleaning agent for about an hour.  This service really helps to insure that none of these prior symptoms may occur.

 


 

Fuel Systemfuel system service
The fuel system provides the fuel necessary for the engine to operate.

In years past, a mechanical fuel pump and carburetor were used. In order for engines to run better and produce less harmful emissions, electronic fuel injection systems have taken their place. On modern vehicles, fuel is supplied by an electric pump and metered to the cylinders by computer controlled fuel injectors.

 

Fuel Tank
The fuel tank stores the fuel. Inside the tank, there is a float that signals the computer systems and/or fuel gauge as to how much fuel is in the tank. On newer vehicles, the fuel pump, fuel, filter, and fuel pressure regulator may also be housed inside the fuel tank.fuel tank fuel pump

The fuel injector is a nozzle-and-valve assembly that sprays a precise amount of fuel from the pressurized fuel system into the engine to aid in the combustion process.

 

 


 


 

 

Fuel System Cleaning

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

Answer:
Obviously, the dirtier your fuel system is, the bigger the improvement you will see in performance and fuel economy after a fuel system cleaning. But it is important not to wait until your system is running poorly. If you do, by the time you get a cleaning, you’ve wasted hundreds of dollars in gas or even possibly damaged your fuel injectors and catalytic converter.

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 job. The fuel injectors do just what their name suggests- inject fuel into your engine. They spray a precise amount of fuel, at a precise time, in a precise pattern, at a precise pressure. This process is very calculated and when your fuel injectors are dirty, it just isn’t possible. In turn, your engine can run rough. Also carbon deposits build up on valves and in the combustion chamber. Fuel economy suffers and performance is degraded over time.

These poor conditions allow excess unburned fuel to pass through the exhaust to accumulate in the catalytic converter. This can lead to overheating and failing. So the main issues while having a dirty fuel system are: bad fuel economy, poor engine performance and the chance of having to replace expensive parts such as the fuel injectors and catalytic converter.

A professional fuel system cleaning cleans out deposits, fuel injectors and the air induction system. This will give you optimum power! This is, of course, ONLY for professional cleanings. This isn’t just pouring a bottle of gas in the tank. Cleaner is added to the fuel system with a special tool attached to a vacuum source as well as some manual scrubbing.

If you are experiencing a rough idle or unusually poor fuel economy, talk to a Xpertech service advisor and ask if a professional fuel system cleaning is in order!

 

 


 

 

Fuel Filter
The fuel filter removes contaminants from the fuel, which helps prevent damage to the fuel system components.fuel filter

Symptoms of a Bad or Failing Fuel Filter

  • Engine may run lean
  • Check Engine Light may illuminate
  • Lack of engine power
  • Fuel leak
 

Fuel Filter Related Repair Advice

  • Many manufacturers don't specify a replacement interval, but it's wise to replace the fuel filter every 30,000 miles
  • We recommend using high-quality fuel filters to keep contaminants out of the fuel system
  • Infrequent fuel filter changes can lead to potentially expensive problems with the fuel pump and/or injectors
  • When replacing a fuel filter, the shop should also replace any associated washers or seals to prevent leaks in the fuel system
  • Many newer vehicles have only an in-tank filter, which is not serviced during routine maintenance

 


 

E85 Fuel Safety For Englewood Drivers

A NAPA SERVICE ASSISTANT ARTICLE

This Xpertech Auto Repair Inc. automotive safety warning is coming from a very unusual source: Englewood Florida fire fighting experts. You've probably heard of E85 gasoline. Some newer vehicle models sold in Florida are specifically built to run on E85 – the rest are not.

E85 gasoline has been developed to fight air pollution and reduce oil consumption in Florida. E85 fuel is a mix of 85% ethanol, a grain-base alcohol, and 15% gasoline. So-called Flex-Fuel vehicles are designed to use either normal gasoline or E85 gas. The result is lower harmful exhaust emissions in our Sarasota area environment.

All gas engines can run with up to 10% ethanol, and in fact a lot of Englewood gasoline does contain some ethanol. The problem comes when well meaning Englewood FL. drivers without Flex-Fuel certified vehicles put E85 into the tank.

At an 85% concentration, the potential for problems arises. Because of the chemical differences between ethanol and gasoline, special seals and gaskets are needed for Flex-Fuel vehicles. In a normal engine, the ethanol in E85 gas will eat away important seals and gaskets. This leads to gas and oil leaks.

You can imagine the fire hazard caused by leaking gasoline. Florida fire fighting experts caution Englewood to only use E85 if they know their vehicle is certified to handle it.

In fact, service and repair center owners are being warned to purchase fire extinguishers that use the special foam needed to extinguish ethanol fires as a precaution in case starting up an ethanol damaged engine leads to a fire.

Obviously, this isn’t something you want to have happen in your garage at home, either. If you have a Flex-Fuel certified vehicle, feel free to protect the environment by using E85 gasoline. If not, please do not use E85 in an engine that’s designed to run on unleaded gasoline only. If you have questions or want to find out how to determine if your vehicle can safely use E85, go to www.e85fuel.com for more resources.

Give us a call if you have any questions.
