Fuel System Repair and Service in Englewood
Every time you fill up your tank with gas you are interacting with your fuel system. The whole point of this system is to store and deliver gas to your engine in order for the car to run. The fuel system supplies the correct mixture of air and gasoline to the engine while reducing harmful fuel vapors and exhaust pollutants. The components that make up the fuel system are: fuel tank, fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel injectors, and fuel lines. Older cars have carburetors instead of fuel injectors, however injectors result in lower emissions and better fuel economy. In Colorado we have fairly strict emissions regulations, so if you plan on owning a vehicle legally it is necessary to keep your fuel system in good condition.
Over time, carbon builds up and deposits on the multiple parts of the fuel system. Carbon buildup makes your vehicle have poor performance and run less efficiently. A check engine light often turns on as a result of an issue within the fuel system.
Signs of Fuel System Issues:
- Sputtering Engine
- Vehicle loses power while accelerating
- Sudden loss of power when the vehicle is under stress
- The engine will not start
- Dashboard warning lights
Did You Know?
The fuel filter should be replaced according to your vehicle's maintenance specifications. Also, it is a good idea to keep your engine tuned up. A plugged or restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency by a third.
