Fuel System

Fuel Injector Cleaning In Schertz

In very simple terms, a fuel injector is a valve that squirts fuel into your family car engine. Your engine control computer tells the fuel injector how much fuel to deliver as well as the precise time it should be delivered. Of course this happens thousands of times a minute.

High temperatures under your hood and variations in Schertz gas quality cause fuel injectors to be fouled with wax, dirt, water, additives and carbon. Injectors can become partially clogged, preventing them from delivering the proper amount of fuel at the correct pressure.

When your family carís injectors are dirty, the fuel doesnít burn as efficiently resulting in poor fuel economy and loss of power. So itís important to keep your fuel injectors clean.

We can perform a full fuel system service for you at Cordova Auto Centers in which the fuel injectors are cleaned so that they operate properly and deliver the right amount of fuel at the right time.

TX drivers should remember that proper maintenance of their fuel system means that they will spend less on gas in Schertz, enjoy strong performance and prevent costly repairs down the road.

At Cordova Auto Centers in San Antonio TX (78217) we install quality NAPA replacement parts. Give us a call at 210.646.9348. To learn more about NAPA AutoCare, visit www.NAPAAutoCare.com.

Better Service At Cordova Auto Centers For Better Fuel Economy

San Antonio drivers who maintain their vehicles make them more efficient. A car or truck that is well-maintained works the way it was designed to and that means it uses less fuel: And you save money.

To help organize our discussion, letís think of things that rob us of fuel economy in two ways: increased friction and inefficient fuel combustion.

Friction. Anything that increases friction increases drag or load on the family car engine. It has to work harder to overcome the drag Ė and that takes more fuel.

The first thing that comes to mind is engine oil. Low oil means thereís not enough to fully lubricate the engine so thereís more friction. The wrong viscosity and grade of oil can also adversely affect fuel economy in San Antonio. Dirty oil wonít lubricate as well as clean oil. The same principles apply to transmission fluid. Getting your oil changed and transmission serviced on schedule will reduce friction and save money. Consider upgrading to synthetic oils in your differentials, engine and transmission to reduce friction.

Another friction related problem is under-inflated tires. When your family car tires are low on air, itís like driving through sand Ė the engine has to work harder to move every mile. Check your tire pressure at least once a month.

Sticking or binding brakesput a drag on your family car and can hurt mileage. A simple brake inspection at Cordova Auto Centers in San Antonio can uncover potential problems.

Letís move on to Fuel. A dirty fuel system has varnish and gum interfering and the fuel injectors may be unable to deliver the correct amount of fuel at the right pressure and in the spray pattern that the engineers intended. A fuel system cleaning in San Antonio will get all of that working right and really improve fuel economy.

Replacing worn spark plugs will burn your fuel as efficiently as possible, saving money at San Antonio gas pumps.

At Cordova Auto Centers, we provide quality maintenance services including aligments and water pump replacement.
