In very simple terms, a fuel injector is a valve that squirts fuel into
your Minivan 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 in
every single fuel-injected car driving down Old irving park, Jefferson
park, and Norwood park roads.
Most fuel injectors for gas engines are known in the Chicago auto industry as port fuel injectors because they deliver the fuel to a port just outside the cylinder. The fuel pump provides pressure needed to squirt the right amount of fuel into the engine.
A few auto makers have recently introduced gas direct injection systems on some engines. They are now available at some Chicago dealerships. These systems inject the gas directly into the cylinders under very high pressure Ė many times the pressure of port injection systems.
Although more complicated, direct injection technology promises greater power with improved fuel economy for gas-poor Old irving park, Jefferson park, and Norwood park commuters. Illinois motorists can expect to see more of it in the future.
High temperatures under your Minivan hood and variations in Chicago 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 injectors are dirty, the fuel doesnít burn as efficiently resulting in poor fuel economy and loss of power. So itís important for Chicago drivers keep their fuel injectors clean.
Your Chicago Triangle Auto Service service center can perform a fuel system service for you in which the fuel injectors are cleaned so that they operate properly and deliver the right amount of fuel at the right time.
Proper maintenance of your Minivan fuel system means that you will spend less on gas, enjoy strong performance and prevent costly Chicago repair bills down the road. Triangle 773-539-5858. www.triangleradiator.com, www.triangleradiator.net, www.chicagobrakerepair.com
