What’s A Fuel System Cleaning?

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 causes 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 Brakes Plus where we'll get your dirty fuel injectors cleaned and operating efficiently.
