Fuel Filter Replacement, Fuel System Check
Why is it important?
The fuel filter is located on the line that brings fuel from the tank to the engine. The filter removes contaminants and particulates so fuel can flow to the engine smoothly and without obstruction. A clean, unclogged fuel filter can help prevent reductions in engine performance.
What is the service?
The old fuel filter is removed and replaced with a new one that meets your manufacturer’s recommendations.
Fuel System Cleaning Service
Every time a vehicle’s driver presses the gas pedal, they are controlling how much fuel and air the engine takes in. The pedal tells the throttle valve how much air to let in and the computer tells the fuel system how much fuel to deliver. These calculated amounts of air and fuel are typically mixed together before being sucked into the combustion chamber of an engine cylinder. There the spark plug ignites the mixture, producing the controlled burn that powers the vehicle.
It’s important for the fuel in the vehicle to be as clean as possible.
Performing fuel system cleaning service:
- helps remove fuel varnish build-up
- helps remove intake valve deposits
- helps reduce cylinder head deposits
- cleans the fuel system
