We think it is important for Southampton, PA drivers to know what drives their vehicles and a big part of that is your fuel system. The fuel system contains several components but here are a couple of the main ones: Fuel Filter, Fuel Intake and Fuel Injectors. Below are their functions of these parts and why they are important to your overall Fuel System.
Fuel Filter: Much like the name suggests, your fuel filter cleans your fuel of dirt and other contaminants before it makes its way to your engine.
Fuel Intake System: The purpose of your Fuel Intake System is to store and provide a steady supply of fuel to your engine. This relies heavily on your Fuel Pump and Fuel Injectors.
Fuel Injectors: This component delivers the precise amount of fuel at a precise time to keep your engine operating at its peak level of performance. Allowing your Fuel Injectors to get clogged will most likely cause them to be replaced before factory recommendations.
Be sure to read your owner’s manual, in there will be maintenance suggestions as to when you should have your Fuel System cleaned or have various components checked and/or replaced. If your filter becomes saturated it can no longer separate contaminants from your fuel. This will cause your engine to become gummed up with harmful deposits that will negatively impact your engine performance.
If your Fuel System does happen to become clogged or compromised for whatever reason, we can help you with a professional fuel system cleaning. This will help remove harmful gummy deposits from your combustion chamber and off your intake valves. Once the cleaning is completed your engine will be operating far more efficiently.
