Over time, debris, dirt, and residue can build up in your fuel system, and a clogged fuel system almost has a domino effect, resulting in damage to other parts of your vehicle’s engine. Not only can it cause damage, but it can also lead to diminished performance and fuel economy. If left unchecked, a dirty fuel system can even lead to an engine shutdown.
The team at Premier Auto Service Center strives to ensure this doesn’t happen with routine fuel system cleaning. Your fuel system has three main parts: your fuel filter, fuel pump, and fuel injectors. Each of these components works together to ensure fuel travels from the fuel tank to your fuel injectors, which will ultimately disintegrate in your engine. The final result is an accurate mixture of air and fuel that combusts upon a spark and powers your engine.
Dirt and debris can affect even just one part of this interconnected system, such as your fuel filter. However, even if one component is clogged, it can still damage other aspects of your engine. If you notice a loss in power, reduced gas mileage, or slight hesitation when you accelerate, your fuel system might require cleaning. If your vehicle decreases in power when towing or going uphill or is having a hard time starting, your fuel system might need cleaning, as these are signs of a dirty fuel system.
If you notice any of these signs, we encourage you to contact our technicians as soon as possible, as a dirty and clogged fuel system can result in poor engine performance and fuel economy. Our team at Premier Auto Service Center will carefully and thoroughly inspect and clean your fuel system so that you can be back on the Cape Coral roads in no time.
