Signs That You Need a Fuel Induction Cleaning

A fuel induction service at Integrity Auto Services includes removing carbon deposits from the engine's injectors, valves, and combustion chambers. Carbon deposits are harmful to your engine's parts and are present in particular additives used in modern fuels to keep them combustible.


This type of auto service is recommended to prevent emissions failure and engine problems (rough idling, hard starting, and stalling). Here is the list of symptoms that your vehicle may display if it requires a fuel induction service:

  • Sluggish acceleration when you step on your gas pedal
  • Shakiness or vibrations when your car is in idle
  • Poor fuel efficiency
  • A rougher ride than normal
  • Loss of power
  • Check engine light is on
  • Failed emissions test

How Often Is A Fuel Induction Service Needed?

A fuel induction service is usually done for vehicles every 60,000 miles (give or take). Though this may not always be necessitated, this maintenance of your fuel system can prevent many internal problems in the long run. If your vehicle exemplifies any of the symptoms above, there's no doubt that you should get this service done.

Truthfully, it doesn't take much to jam your fuel injectors. Their openings are approximately 1/2 the size of a pinhole. It only takes about 10% of the space clogged to cause engine misfiring (that's very small!). As soon as you're out of the shop, you will notice instant and noticeable changes to your car's performance. Some benefits you may see are:

  • Better gas mileage
  • Improved engine performance
  • Quicker acceleration
  • Less harmful emissions
  • Removes the combustion chamber deposits
  • More balanced air/fuel mixture inside the system
