Bringing your car in for routine maintenance typically means that you are coming in for one thing and are told you need a whole list of other things. Although these different things are often unnecessary, you do need routine fuel system service in Marysville every so often. Essentially, you want to get done whatever you need to do immediately for your safety or to keep your car from breaking down. It is important to understand what a fuel system is and how the service works.
Why a Fuel System Service?
Typically if you look in your owner’s manual for your vehicle, you will not find any information indicating when to perform this service. Despite this, you should be smart about how often you do it and when you do it.
The vehicle fuel system is not incredibly complicated, but it does need to be cleaned. This will depend on how old your vehicle is and the kind of mileage it gets. If you have already put a few years on the car, then you may have already put over 10,000 gallons of gasoline in it. This is bound to leave deposits in your fuel system over time, so it is essential to go through this system service.
What Does the Fuel System Service Include?
Having a full fuel system service should include both a chemical cleaning of your system and replacing any worn components. This might include:
- Fuel pump
- Fuel filter
- Fuel injectors
The fuel filter should be changed every 30,000 miles. Fuel pumps and fuel injectors do not normally need to be replaced unless there are signs of wear.
You will need to have this taken care of at some point, do not let it go for too long, or you run the risk of danger with your vehicle. Contact us at Conaway Motors if you consider a fuel system service in Marysville by calling (425) 905-2424.
