Fuel injectors get clogged easily as their openings are really tiny – smaller than a pinhole – and it only takes about 10% blockage to cause problems with your engine.
The following problems can be caused by dirty fuel injectors:
• Poor Acceleration
• Lower Power
• Higher Emissions
• Poor Fuel Economy
You can see why it’s so important to ensure that your fuel injectors are cleaned regularly in order to maintain optimum performance from your car.
At Dukes AutoTech we recommend having your car’s fuel injectors cleaned about every 25,000 miles but this is very much dependent on how much you drive and the kind of driving that you do. For example, drivers who make a lot of short trips – urban drivers, like a lot of us – are more likely to have clogged fuel injectors.
So, to avoid the problems we mentioned above, to save money on fuel and to extend the life of your engine, get in touch with the team at Dukes AutoTech who will be happy to help.
