Post The Benefit Of Flushing Your Fuel Injectors
The Benefit Of Flushing Your Fuel Injectors
by: Donald Buske

Some of the most common complaints of drivers today, are lack of engine performance and poor fuel economy. There are many variables that can cause these two concerns. Old spark plugs, clogged air filters, and plugged fuel filters are just a few of the most commonly neglected maintenance items that cause these complaints. One component which most people do not even think about when it comes to tune-up maintenance is the FUEL INJECTORS.

As fuel burns within the combustion chamber, there are small particles of carbon that are left behind. These small particles stick to parts located within the cylinders. Over time these become larger deposits that rob your engine of its performance and economy. Intake and exhaust valves no longer seat properly in the cylinder head. Fuel injectors become clogged and no longer spray the fine atomized spray that they are designed to for optimum performance. Carbon even sticks to the piston rings, eventually causing oil consuption.

Regularly flushing your fuel injection system will not only clean the fuel injectors, but will also help to clean the valves and pistons at the same time. Another good practice to follow in your daily quest to keep your engine maintained is to add a cleaning agent to your fuel tank with every other fill up. This will not prevent the carbon deposits completely, but will help limit the amount of deposits between flushes. You will still need to flush your fuel injectors once per year.

As gas prices continue to rise with no real end in site, we as consumers need to take any measure we can to help with increasing our fuel economy. Maintaining our fuel injection systems is just one step toward achieving that goal.

A little auto repair advise will go a long way...

I have over 25 years of automotive repair experience. I know quite alot about everything that has to do with your auto. I am ASE certified as well as GM certified. I am originally from Wisconsin, born and raised, lived there for 38 years. I've spent many years in the summer-humid /winter-icy/snowy climate and have dealt with not only repair conditions there but also how to drive properly in those conditions. Fuel economy is probably the most important element to saving money today, and how you drive or how your vehicle performs plays a big part in that. I now have lived in Phoenix for the past 6 years, in the middle of the desert where it reaches up to 115 degrees on a summer day. I've seen it all as far as vehicle maintenance and care goes and can help with any problem by email or by visiting my website at
