Somersworth Fuel System Cleaning

Performing a fuel system cleaning provides improvement in performance and fuel economy.  It is not worth waiting until your engine is running poorly, you've wasted hundreds of dollars in gas or maybe even damaged your fuel injectors and catalytic converter.  Gasoline is a petroleum-based product and will leave some residue, gum and varnish along the way.  Some of that can find its way into your fuel injectors and interfere with their job.  The fuel injectors do just that, inject fuel into your vehicle’s engine.  They spray a precise amount of fuel at a precise time in a precise pattern at a precise pressure.  When they are dirty this precision just isn't possible.  So, your vehicle engine can run rough.  Also, carbon deposits build up on valves and in the combustion chamber.  Fuel economy suffers and performance is degraded.  These conditions allow excess unburned fuel to pass out through the exhaust and accumulate in the catalytic converter, which can lead to it overheating and failing.  So poor engine performance and the chance of having to replace fuel injectors and catalytic converters are all potential problems for a vehicle with a dirty fuel system.  A professional fuel system cleaning cleans out deposits, fuel injectors and the air induction system.   Doing so will provide you with optimal power and performance, and it helps avoid future repairs.  A professional fuel system cleaning is not just pouring a bottle in the gas tank.  Cleaner is added into the fuel system with a special tool attached to a vacuum source, and there is some manual scrubbing of the throttle body and air induction system.  If you are experiencing a rough idle or unusually poor fuel economy, it may be time to have a fuel system cleaning performed on your vehicle.
