Fuel System Cleaning
Although fuel injected systems differ from a vehicle with a carburetor, the basic fuel system is the same. You have the gas tank, fuel filter, fuel pump and then the method in which fuel is sent to the engine.
If you have any fuel pump or fuel filter problems, it is worth having a complete fuel system clean, this would comprise of the elements below:
- Clean your fuel system starting from your gas tank and adding a recommended premium fuel and system cleaner additive.
- Clean the fuel injectors or clean the carburetor, the intake valves, the engine combustion chambers using fuel and fuel system cleaner, this can remove any deposits that cause internal parts to stick.
- Use a fuel and fuel system cleaner that will remove water or moisture from your fuel system.
- Lubricate the throttle body and throttle moving parts with a corrosion inhibitor and remove old varnish, dirt and any carbon deposits from the throttle casing and throttle plates.
- Dissolve any deposits from your engine’s intake manifolds, runners and valves, along with the combustion chambers with a multi-stage intake deposit cleaner.
- Leave engine cleaner resting in your engine that will soften hard carbon deposits over a period of time and help reduce any long-term build-up inside the catalytic converter.
