Q: What can dirty injectors do to your engine?
A: Cause Idle Problems – misfires at idle, lumpy idle, inconsistent idle speed. Limit Maximum Power – In some cases, dirty injectors can cause the air fuel ratio to vary across your cylinders to the point of limiting the maximum power your engine can produce. Cause Engine Damage – In very extreme cases, you can have a cylinder lean-out to the point of piston damage. This is a rare and extreme case, but it can happen.
Your fuel injector is what supplies fuel to your engine so that you can drive your vehicle. The function of a clean fuel injector is that they spray a fine continuous mist of gasoline to supply your engine with the fuel it needs to operate efficiently. This is opposite the function of a dirty fuel injector which will not spray the fuel evenly resulting in poor vehicle performance. A clean fuel injector is significant to running a top notch engine performance. Having a clean fuel injector is significant mainly to the power of your engine and how good the gas mileage is in your car. Good gas mileage and increased engine power are among some of the benefits of having a clean fuel injector. Another benefit to having a clean fuel injector is low maintenance costs.

Fuel Injector Cleaning In TucsonPosted November 15, 2011 9:52 AM
In very simple terms, a fuel injector is a valve that squirts fuel into your engine. Your engine control computer tells the fuel injector how much fuel to deliver as well as the precise time it should be delivered. Of course this happens thousands of times a minute in every single fuel-injected car driving down the Tucson roads.
Most fuel injectors for gas engines are known in the auto industry as port fuel injectors because they deliver the fuel to a port just outside the cylinder. The fuel pump provides pressure needed to squirt the right amount of fuel into the engine.
A few auto makers have recently introduced gas direct injection systems on some engines. They are now available at some Tucson dealerships. These systems inject the gas directly into the cylinders under very high pressure – many times the pressure of port injection systems.
Although more complicated, direct injection technology promises greater power with improved fuel economy for gas-poor commuters. Motorists can expect to see more of it in the future.
High temperatures under your vehicle's hood and variations in Tucson gas quality cause fuel injectors to be fouled with wax, dirt, water, additives and carbon. Injectors can become partially clogged, preventing them from delivering the proper amount of fuel at the correct pressure.
When injectors are dirty, the fuel doesn’t burn as efficiently resulting in poor fuel economy and loss of power. So it’s important for our drivers keep their fuel injectors clean.
Your BRAKEmax Car Car Centers technician can perform a fuel system service for you in which the fuel injectors are cleaned so that they operate properly and deliver the right amount of fuel at the right time.
Proper maintenance of your vehicle's fuel system means that you will spend less on gas, enjoy strong performance and prevent costly repair bills down the road.
