With a fuel system cleaning at Brakes Plus, we'll work to get your car running “just like new”. Better yet, having your fuel system cleaned will lead to better fuel efficiency – and who doesn't love saving at the pump?
A fuel system cleaning clears out blockages, like carbon deposits, that build up inside your fuel system. Grime inside parts like the throttle body and fuel injectors cause your car to use fuel less efficiently. In other words – more trips to the pump, among other issues that drain your time and wallet.
Your fuel injectors are roughly half the size of a pinhole (tiny!), and it only takes an 8-10% blockage for your engine to begin misfiring. So, those little parts are a big deal! If you are experiencing any of the warning signs below, turn to the experts at any of our Brakes Plus locations, where we'll get your dirty fuel injectors cleaned and operating efficiently.
