What is a Fuel Injection Service?

Your car's engine works hard to get you where you need to go every day. As a result, the fuel filter, pump, and injectors that help keep the engine running smoothly can become caked with dirt and other pollutants, causing major damage to one or multiple parts. When your car is in need of a fuel injection system service, it may stall, get poor gas mileage, create odd pinging noises, and more. A fuel injection service will ensure these important parts are cleaned and your car remains in good condition.

What Should Be Included in a Fuel Injection Service?

Fuel injection services consist of various examinations, tests, and cleanings that keep your engine running smoothly, including the following:

  • Extensive inspection of the fuel lines, fuel rail, pressure regulator, vacuum line, and all of its connections
  • Thorough cleaning of the fuel injectors and throttle body air intake
  • Comprehensive pressure testing of the fuel pump and system
  • Detailed decarbonizing of the intake manifold, exhaust valves, combustion chamber, and pistons

Why are Fuel Injection Services Important?

Regular fuel injection system services, optimally performed around every 30,000 miles, are important for maintaining the function and safety of your vehicle. Letting your car go too long without these services can increase your risk of experiencing breakdowns or damage that can cost thousands of dollars. Additionally, fuel injection services can help reduce the amount of emissions your car gives off, and they can ensure your car's warranty remains intact.
