Fuel System Gardner MA
The fuel system is, as the name suggests, the way your car gets its fuel delivered to it. Read on to learn more about fuel systems, the parts that make them up, how they work and much more.
For the engine to start and run smoothly with no stalling, hesitation or misfiring, the injectors have to deliver the proper amount of fuel with every squirt. This is especially important on late-model engines with sequential fuel injection.
On late-model imports, it’s usually much quicker to test the fuel pump with a scan tool that has the applicable bi-directional controls and data stream displays. If those features are available, a technician can quickly evaluate the fuel pump’s electrical performance by using the scan tool to activate the fuel pump. Read for more.
Fuel injector service has become a familiar procedure for most import shops. Nevertheless, many shops have different opinions about how fuel injectors should be serviced. Read on for more detailed information in the following article.
Most of the early models of Jeep Grand Cherokee (1993-1998) were powered by either an in-line 4.0L six-cylinder engine, or the larger 5.2L and 5.9L V8 Magnum engines. In fact, the Grand Cherokee 5.2L V8 made both the Car and Driver magazine’s "Ten Best" list, as well as Motor Trend magazine’s "Truck of the Year" for 1993.
Diesel power may not be for everyone, but I would guess that many people would not even realize that a TDI was diesel powered unless they were told. Compared to the diesel-powered cars of 20 years ago, the TDI is quiet, powerful and smooth. Economy of operation runs the gamut from the high fuel mileage, to the lack of needed tuneups.
All too often, technicians assume fuel pressure is “good” without actually measuring it with a gauge. If the engine runs, they assume the injectors are getting adequate fuel pressure. If you want to know more about diagnosis of fuel pumps and injectors, don't miss the chance to go on reading this article.
Electronic fuel injection has replaced carburetors in all import applications because, unlike a mechanical carburetor, the computer-operated electronic fuel injection system requires only a few electronic inputs such as throttle position, coolant temperature, barometric pressure and intake air flow to provide accurate fuel metering to the engine.
