Here at Burlington Toyota You can get fuel injection service for your Toyota car, truck, and SUV. Toyota fuel injection delivers performance, fuel efficiency, and reliability, but over time deposits can build up on injector tips and other critical engine parts. If your Toyota has more than 100,000 km on the odometer it may be time for a fuel system flush.
What is a Fuel Injection Service (FIS)?
Over time, carbon deposits from burning gas can cause a layer of build-up on your fuel injectors and fuel system. A FIS cleans all the nasty build up and flushes it out of your fuel system.
Fuel injection service may also include changing your fuel filter if your vehicle is equipped with one.
When does my car need a FIS?
If your odometer reads more than 100,000 km you’ll want to get his valuable maintenance, especially if your car goals are longevity.
Do you notice a drop in your fuel economy? Does your car feel sluggish or lack power when the hit the accelerator? These are signs of a carbon build-up in the fuel system.
Cleaning the fuel injectors
If the fuel injectors are restricted or leaking, there are several options to clean them including:
1. A fuel injector-cleaning chemical that is poured into the fuel tank.
Provides a noticeable difference in power and drive-ability after one use. The disadvantages are that you can’t check the spray pattern, and the filters may become plugged with contaminants freed by the cleaner.
2. A cleaner that runs through the fuel rails and injectors.
Uses stronger chemicals that the in tank cleaners. Same disadvantages as 1.
3. An ultrasonic injector cleaner and injector flow bench.
The preferred method of cleaning injectors. Cycles the fuel injectors while the fuel injector tips are immersed in an ultrasonic bath, which uses an environmentally friendly cleaning fluid to clean the fuel injectors. The flow bench portion also allows a user to perform a flow test before and after cleaning, and it allows the user to observe the fuel injector spray pattern. This method requires that the fuel injectors be removed from the engine.
