Something we hear quite frequently from Fort Wayne drivers is that their fuel economy is down and their vehicle just doesn’t have the pep it used to. When that happens, one of the things we look for is clogged fuel injectors.
The engine management computer tells your fuel injectors exactly when to spray fuel into your engine. It is key that clean fuel injectors spray the right amount of gasoline or diesel fuel in a nice, specific spray pattern. A dirty injector can’t spray enough fuel and it comes out in an uneven, weak pattern.
When your fuel injectors are dirty or clogged, the fuel just can’t burn as efficiently, which causes fuel economy to drop. And your car, truck, or minivan’s engine can’t make as much power.
Fuel injectors just get dirty over time. Gas and diesel fuel cause varnish and gum to build up in your fuel injectors, especially if you buy bargain gas. If your fuel injectors get too dirty, they can be damaged and need to be replaced – which can be pretty pricey.
The good news is that a professional fuel injector cleaning at Fox and Fox Frame Service Inc. in Fort Wayne can get the sticky buildup out of your injectors.
