In today’s Tower Auto Repair auto post, we’re talking about fuel system cleaning. The first thing to know is how important it is to have a clean fuel system. Dawsonville car owners need fuel to go, and the cleaner the fuel system, the more efficiently the fuel will burn. That means more power and better fuel economy.

A clean fuel system saves money at the pump. We guess you could say, it all starts and ends at the pump. One of the most important things Cumming car owners can do to keep their SUV fuel system clean is to buy good quality gas. Major brands have detergents that keep gum and varnish from rapidly building up in the fuel system.

So buying cheaper gas in Dawsonville can actually cost more in the long run. Now, most cars on Georgia highways are more than five or six years old. That means they’ve had time for some dirt and rust to start accumulating in the fuel tank. This junk needs to be filtered out of the fuel before it hits your SUV engine. That’s the fuel filter’s job.

When the fuel filter is clogged, the dirty fuel will bypass the filter and go on up to the engine where it can clog fuel injectors and get into the cylinders. That could do some damage. So Dahlonega car owners should have their fuel filter changed when recommended. Check your owner’s manual or ask your friendly Tower Auto Repair service specialist if your fuel filter is due for replacement.

The fuel then goes up into the throttle body. This is another area where varnish and gum can accumulate. A professional fuel system cleaning at Tower Auto Repair in Dawsonville will use a combination of special cleaning chemicals and old fashioned swabbing to clean out the throttle body. Now, the fuel injectors are the last stop in the fuel delivery system.

It’s real important to keep those fuel injectors clean. The fuel injectors need to deliver a precise amount of fuel, at exactly the right time, in a particular spray pattern. They just can’t do that if they’re dirty. Dirty fuel injectors really rob power and hurt fuel economy.

It is important for the fuel system proper, but there are a couple other things that will help keep your SUV engine clean as well. Of course, air is mixed with the fuel before it’s burned. Dirty air means dirt gets into your engine, so you need to replace your engine air filter when it’s dirty.

The PCV value routes unburned fuel that escapes into the lower engine back up into the intake system to be burned. A sticky PCV valve needs to be replaced at Tower Auto Repair to make sure that system is working properly and the breather filter needs to be replaced if it’s dirty as well.

Do all these things and your SUV engine’s air and fuel will be as clean as possible. You’ll get much better fuel economy and better power.
