The Fuel Injector Cleaners I Recommend to My Customers

Uncategorized

Fuel injection occurs when fuel is introduced into an automotive engine by way of a fuel injector. These are small electromechanical devices that atomize gasoline into particles that can be forced through a small nozzle. As time progresses, deposits from burning fuel begin to buildup in your fuel system. When this buildup occurs, and the fuel injectors get clogged, the amount of fuel that enters the cylinder is greatly compromised, which result in poor mileage and overall poor car performance.

The use of low quality fuel is a basic cause of clogged fuel injectors. It is important for the car owner to remember that not all gasoline is created the same. The lower the quality of fuel, the less detergent, less effective fuel additives are in the gasoline. Unfortunately, lower quality gasoline is always the least expensive, and is frequently chosen by motorists. Symptoms of dirty, clogged fuel injectors include: hard starting, rough idle, decreased gas mileage, high emissions.

The following fuel cleaner reviews are representative of the best on the market, and ones I wholeheartedly recommend. All of these cleaners also come with high customer satisfaction ratings, and will do just what their manufacturers claim, and then some. The end result will be a vehicle with improved overall performance.

BG 44K

The first cleaner on my list is BG 44K. BG 44K is fast when it comes to cleaning out your fuel injectors, valves and combustion chambers. This cleaner is the most expensive on our list, but it is also the some efficient on cleaning out your engine. It not only cleans your fuel injectors, but it also goes after the intake valves, ports, fuel filters and the combustion chamber. This product actually cleans your entire fuel system. After using this product there will definitely be a marked and notable increase in improved miles per gallon. This product is not only the one I recommend, but it’s also very easy to use. All that needs to be done is to pour the BG44K right into the gas tank. If you want a fast cleanup of your fuel injectors, the BG 44K is the choice for you.

Lucas 10013 Fuel Treatment

I like this product, simply because it does its job and it’s also a combination of lubricant and detergent. Lucas 10013 Fuel Treatment is manufactured with a blend of oil, additives and detergent and will clean the carbon from the combustion chamber as well as the lubricating carburetors, fuel injectors and valve seats. It neutralizes low sulfur fuel issues, while increasing power and miles per gallon. Using this product will cause a noticeable increase in miles per gallon. This is one of the most budget friendly fuel injector cleaners on our list, as you only require 3 ounces per every 10 gallons of fuel. This cleaner is one of the best on the market for the money, it’s cheap, environmentally friendly, and will ensure your car will function at its optimum performance level.

The Chevron Techron Concentrate Plus Fuel System Cleaner is a very well-known and familiar brand, as well as being cost efficient. With this brand, you get enough for 2 treatments for one car, or cleaning 2 cars. This cleaner takes care of carburetors, fuel injectors intake valves and ports as well as combustion chambers. As a result, your car will regain much of it’s lost performance while improving your fuel economy. This contains PEA (Polyetheramine) which developed by Chevron. I like this product in that it also cleans and guards against corrosive sulfur deposits that damage your fuel gauge sensors. For it’s price, it’s a great cleaner as it takes care of the entire fuel system. Just one ounce of this product will treat 20 gallon tank.

Royal Purple 11722 is a high performance synthetic fuel system cleaner which cleans out every component of the intake system, it cleans fuel injectors, carburetors, intake valves and combustion chambers. This cleaner improves mileage, reduces hydrocarbon, nitrogen oxide and carbon monoxide emissions and stabilizes fuel when the car is not being used for a long period of time. While this product is still not as widely known as the others on our list, for the price, it’s a good, easy to use and versatile cleaner.

Conclusion

Fuel injector cleaners are a necessary part of proper car ownership and maintenance. In fact, anyone who asks the question on how to keep your engine running smoothly, will surely come across resources on how to clean fuel injectors.  Fuel injectors are responsible for spraying the correct amount of fuel into your engine, it’s as simple as that. When fuel injectors cannot function up to their optimal level your engine will begin to stutter and your mileage will suffer. When your fuel injectors are cleaned properly, your car will regain much of it’s lost performance, get better gas mileage and have lower emissions. Indeed, research has shown that regular maintenance can reduce up to 80 percent of all sulfur deposits. All of these products represent excellent choices depending on what you are willing to spend and your specific needs. We personally recommend, however, that you use the BG 44K. However, if you have budget constraints cleaners such as Lucas and Chevron will do quite nicely.

This Is Why I Love Being a Mechanic

Uncategorized

Being a mechanic, I can honestly say that I love my job! There are some downsides to working in the industry, on which I won’t be focusing right now, but on those that make this profession an awesome one.

Knowledge

autotechnician

Every good mechanic has to know a lot and that occasionally becomes overwhelming to most of us. However, we often disregard how many things and details we actually know. This knowledge goes beyond transmissions and engines. It’s those details and slight differences made on models of cars produced just a year apart. Or, that the password 13864 is used on MK4 to recode the instrument cluster. Or, details such as the size of thread pitch, oil drain plugs and lug bolts, which are identical.

Mechanical Mind

car-maintenance

 

You need to be mechanically inclined to do this job well. You need to take the entire car apart and then put it back together, not forgetting a single little detail, or it wouldn’t work properly. It can be really hard.  So, you need to have a mechanical mind. Fitting different parts is a skill every mechanic needs to have.

My colleague once had such a bad time while trying to take the fuel sensor off. He got so annoyed and told me the wrench cannot be fitted on that sensor. Very soon, he noticed that the wrench was upside down. We had a great laugh.

Side Work

This is one of the great perks of being a mechanic, but it can be a downside too. You are able to earn a lot by having a regular job and doing side work as well. You get cash while working in a relaxed manner. You aren’t in a hurry and often can enjoy a drink.

The downside is that people would like you to repair their cars for free. I have a regular full-time job and don’t do work on the side. However, I know bunch of people who have side work as well and they are very happy about that. They have a lot of work and earnings are great.

Tools

Tools are the part of the job for me. Buying new tools is such a great experience. Some people would think it’s crazy to spend over 400 dollars on wrench, but I love it. It’s well-invested money that will make my work much more effective and faster. It would quickly pay off. I also can take the tools I need so that I’m able to work at my place. Just carry a bag of tools I need and bring it with me.

Respect, Trust and Appreciation

mechanic-using-tablet-to-fix-car

 

Many people have a wrong idea about this job. They think that being a mechanic is not a respectable profession, with which I don’t agree. I feel respected every time any person asks me to give them a piece of advice or when I repair their car. I’ve never been, or felt, disrespected as a mechanic.

When bringing their car for repair, people trust me with something valuable to them and appreciate it when I make it work again.  A car is an expensive purchase, so the work I do on a man’s car can affect it for the following period of several years. Therefore, when they trust me with their car, it means so much to me.

Mechanics are valuable. Consider the dealers they spend so much money on training mechanics. Each training session costs over 600 dollars. That’s another advantage of this profession you are trained and with it you gain so much knowledge. If at any time you leave your current job, you still have the knowledge. You are able to keep working at another shop, or your own. You can make your own decisions. All these things make a mechanic’s job and profession a great one.
