Everybody is talking about fuel these days. With good reason, gas prices are predicted to be the highest they have been in years! So what is a good way to increase your miles per gallon average and improve the overall performance of your Volvo? Fuel Injection Service from Hubbard Woods Motors!
Raise your hand if you know what fuel injectors are. If you raised them, put them down (we can’t really see you!) For those who didn’t raise their hands, fuel injectors are small devices that force the fuel through a small nozzle in an even spray pattern towards the pistons. A well working fuel injector sprays the fuel in such a way that it is burned efficiently. However over time carbon deposits in your engine can alter or even block the spray pattern causing failure of the fuel injectors. Replacing fuel injectors is no cheap undertaking; however caring for the fuel injectors of your Volvo is simple and cost effective!
Servicing the fuel injectors of your Volvo will not only keep your car running smoother and more fuel efficient. It can actually prolong the life of your fuel injectors. An important note: there are some fuel additives on the market that claim to clean your fuel injectors. These solutions never clean as completely as a professional fuel injection service your Volvo service team here at Hubbard Woods Motors.
So when should fuel injectors be serviced? There is no hard and fast answer. Some will tell you every 30,000 miles, but that could depend on the current mileage of your Volvo (the higher the mileage the more likely you need injector cleaning sooner rather than later). Also driving styles play a large role in determining how often. Stop and go driving in cities and frequent short trips may require service more often.
As always discuss your Volvo’s maintenance and care with the technicians here at Hubbard Woods Motors whom have over 100 years combined experience keeping your Volvos running smooth and efficiently!
