What Happens During a Fuel Injection Service?

If you expect your car to last you for many years to come, then maintenance is necessary. One important maintenance that is vital to your vehicle's operation that tends to get overlooked is fuel injection services. To understand what kind of service this is, you must understand what the fuel system is responsible for in your car.


The fuel system is composed of various components, including the gasoline itself. One of these key parts is the fuel injectors, which quite simply inject fuel for combustion. Over time, the injectors can get worn and collect buildup, which can cause poor performance. Some other symptoms that you may experience include:

  • Excess engine smoke
  • Lowered fuel efficiency
  • Laggy acceleration
  • Rough idling
  • Misfiring engine
  • Fuel leak or odors
  • Check engine light on

At Grayson Tire & Auto Center, we offer exceptional preventative maintenance, including fuel injection cleaning to remove the carbon buildup in the induction system. One of our mechanics will typically inspect all fuel system connections, the fuel and vacuum lines, and check the pressure. They will then clean the fuel injectors and throttle body air intake. We can also renew the fuel pump, clean out the fuel tank, and restore your fuel lines to ensure that your car achieves the best possible fuel efficiency. After, we will check the pressure again and run an emissions test to measure the improvements. You'll see immediate improvements to how your car drives. 


Our facility is equipped with top-of-the-line equipment and certified mechanics to handle fuel cleanings on various car makes and models. If you believe you are due for a fuel injection service, please bring your car to the experts at Grayson Tire & Auto Center today.
