The fuel injection system is needed for admitting fuel into the internal combustion engine. There are many benefits of a fuel-injected car including smoother and more dependable engine response during quick throttle changes, easier and more reliable engine starting, better operation at extremely high or low ambient temperatures, increased maintenance intervals, and increased fuel efficiency.
At KarPro Tyre & Auto we generally recommend performing a fuel injection service every 40,000km, however if your vehicle is used mostly for city driving and if you do a lot of “stop and go” driving, then it may be advisable to perform this service every 20,000 km.
Over time, carbon deposits build up on engine valves, which can cause an extreme drop in performance and fuel economy. If you find your car reducing power and fuel economy. You will likely need a Fuel Injection Service.
Performing an extensive Fuel Injection Service will ensure the fuel and intake systems, catalytic convertor, combustion chambers, and engine valves are thoroughly cleaned and working at optimum levels. At KarPro Tyre & Auto, we have highly qualified and skilled technicians who are trained to carry out this service with the right equipment.
Although we recommend fuel additives as part of your service schedule and our preventative maintenance programs, Fuel additives alone are largely ineffective when there is carbon build-up on valves and piston rings. They only target the fuel injectors and are not concentrated enough to clean away stubborn carbon build-up.
They do very little to address the other arguably more important areas than the fuel injectors. If you do experience any improvements it is only rectifying a small portion of the problem and further work will need to be carried out and rectify the issue.
