If you are old enough, probably remember driving a vehicle with a carburetor. Maybe it was your first car, or the old pickup truck your father owned. Either way, you may remember the huge number of problems those carbureted vehicles encountered, and how difficult they could be to resolve.
If so, you are probably happy that carbureted vehicles are now largely confined to the past. If your current set of wheels is relatively new, chances are it uses fuel injection to move fuel from the tank to where it is needed. Fuel injection has a number of built-in advantages, including greater fuel economy and increased efficiency, but even so fuel injected engines are far from perfect.
Are Your Fuel Injectors Working the Way They Should?
Fuel injection may be an improvement on the old carburetors, but these systems still have their issues. Sometimes the problems are obvious, like a huge miss in the engine or shaking when you stop at a red light. Other times the problems are more subtle, like a slight shimmy or an unexplained drop in fuel economy.
If you notice any of these systems, it is important to bring your vehicle in for service. Fuel injection problems will not resolve on their own – they will only get worse over time. If you fail to address the issue right away, you could be facing a big repair bill down the line. At Fairfax Auto Repair, we are experts at spotting those little problems other mechanics often miss, potentially saving you hundreds or even thousands of dollars.
