Fuel System Service
Your vehicle isn’t going anywhere without gas. Modern fuel systems are complex and there are many reasons why an engine might run badly or not at all. If your engine displays any of the following symptoms there could be a problem with the fuel system:
All modern engines use fuel injection. (Carburetors went away as emissions standards began rising in the 1970’s.) In fuel injection an injector sprays a precisely metered quantity of gasoline into the intake air. (The newest engines have injectors spray directly into each cylinder.) This mixture of gas and air burns evenly in the combustion chamber to provide the power.
Fuel system problems may be caused by a blocked filter, dirty injectors, a failing pump or a faulty pressure regulator. If the engine runs rich (too much gas,) or lean (not enough,) the Check Engine light will likely come on.
We’re very experienced at diagnosing and solving fuel system problems here at Franklynn Automotive. Sometimes it’s as simple as running some BG cleaning fluid through the system – like those in the video below.
Other times it can be more complicated. If you’re concerned about the way your engine is running, call us and we’d be happy to help!
