Something we hear quite frequently from Charleston residents is that their fuel economy is down and their vehicle just doesn't have the pep it used to. When that happens, one of the things we look for is clogged fuel injectors.

The engine management computer tells your fuel injectors exactly when to squirt fuel into your vehicle engine. It is important that clean fuel injectors spray the right amount of gasoline or diesel fuel in a nice, specific spray pattern. A dirty injector can't spray enough fuel and it comes out in an uneven, weak pattern.

When Charleston drivers' fuel injectors are dirty or clogged, the fuel just can't burn as efficiently, which causes to fuel economy to drop. And your vehicle engine can't make as much power.

Fuel injectors just get dirty over time. Gas and diesel fuel cause varnish and gum to build up in your fuel injectors, especially if you buy bargain gas in Charleston. If your fuel injectors get too dirty, they can be damaged and need to be replaced – which can be pretty costly.

The good news is that a professional fuel injector cleaning at Charleston Auto Repair in Charleston can get all that gunk out of your injectors. They'll be able to spray the right amount of fuel at exactly the right time and in the right spray pattern. Your fuel economy will be restored in Charleston along with your vehicle engine performance. Fuel injectors are cleaned as part of a comprehensive fuel system cleaning that includes the induction system (throttle plates, intake manifold, idle air by-pass passages and, if applicable, the mass airflow sensor).

So ask your friendly and knowledgeable about fuel injector cleaning in Charleston at Charleston Auto Repair to get your engine running like new.
