Fuel System Problems
A lot can happen as gasoline makes its way from the fuel tank to your engine. Although fuel system components are not generally considered wear parts, they too can wear out, fail or suffer damage due to another part failure. At Hillmuth Auto Care, we can help you with a variety of fuel system repairs including but not limited to:
- Carburetor repair
- Fuel tank leak repair
- Fuel filter replacement
- Fuel pump repair
- Fuel injector cleaning
- Fuel line repair
- Diesel injection system service
Fuel system problems, especially leaks, are not something to put off to repair. A leak, no matter how tiny, may result in a fire if it’s close to the engine or exhaust. Other non-life-threatening problems will still affect your fuel economy and the overall performance of your vehicle. Driving with a clogged fuel filter or dirty injectors may cost you more in wasted gas than it would in repairs.
Fuel System Service
To avoid fuel system problems, it is recommended to perform fuel system service every two years or 30,000 miles. It helps reduce emissions and improve drivability and gas mileage. It involves cleaning the throttle body, intake manifold, intake valves and fuel injectors; installing fuel additives to clean the entire fuel system; removing carbon deposits and cleaning the internal fuel filter, fuel rail and supply lines. This is something we will also be happy to assist you with at Hillmuth Auto Care.
