What is a brake caliper?
A “brake caliper” is a component of your vehicles “disc brake” system. The brake caliper is a hydraulic component that applies pressure to the brake pads against the brake rotor and in turn slows down the wheel and ultimately the vehicle. Brake calipers are situated in a harsh environment exposed to road grime, water dust dirt, and salt with a wide range of temperatures. The caliper is filled with “brake fluid”.

Question: What benefit will I get out of a fuel system cleaning?
Well, the dirtier your fuel system is, the bigger the improvement you’ll see in performance. But it’s not good to wait until your engine is running poorly, you’ve wasted hundreds of dollars in gas or maybe even damaged your fuel injectors and catalytic converter. Gasoline is a petroleum-based product and will leave some residue, gum and varnish along the way. Some of that can find its way into your fuel injectors and interfere with their job. The fuel injectors do just that – inject fuel into your engine. They spray a precise amount of fuel, at a precise time, in a precise pattern, at a precise pressure. When they are dirty this precision just isn’t possible. So your vehicle engine can run poorly. Also carbon deposits build up on valves and in the combustion chambers.
Fuel economy suffers and performance is degraded.These conditions allow excess unburned fuel to pass out through the exhaust to accumulate in the catalytic converter – which can lead to it overheating and failure. So poor engine performance and the chance of having to replace fuel injectors and catalytic converters – all potential problems for Southampton drivers with dirty vehicle fuel systems. A professional fuel system cleaning in Southampton cleans out deposits, fuel injectors and the air induction system. Southampton drivers get optimal power, performance and and it helps avoid future repairs. Now I said professional fuel system cleaning: this isn’t just pouring a bottle in the gas tank. Cleaner is added into the fuel system with a special tool attached to a vacuum source and there is some manual scrubbing of the throttle body and air induction system.
