Fuel system cleaning services to keep your car running newer, longer.
Help improveengine performance and gas mileage with a fuel system cleaning service from Firestone Complete Auto Care. Because the filter, fuel pump and fuel injectors are all part of an interconnected system, these parts can get clogged with dirt and debris. A fuel system cleaning is done to clean out all of the dirt, debris and build up in your fuel system. A clogged fuel system can damage other engine parts, which can quickly lead to deteriorated performance, fuel economy, and a complete engine shutdown if not regularly maintained.
Inside every vehicle, you'll find a fuel system that consists of a fuel filter, fuel pump, and fuel injectors. These three critical components work together to make sure that fuel travels from the fuel tank, to your engine's fuel injectors, and atomizes perfectly into the engine. This allows the correct air / fuel mixture to optimally combust upon spark and power your vehicle.
Because the filter, pump and fuel injectors are all part of an interconnected system, dirt and debris can clog one part of the fuel system. This can lead to damage with other engine parts, which can quickly lead to deteriorated performance or complete engine shutdown if not regularly maintained.

For this reason we highly recommend coming in for an annual fuel system cleaning or as recommended by your vehicle manufacturer and your vehicle owner's manual.
