Minor Fuel System Cleaning

fuel-OIL-Techron-ChartYour Fuel System Fuel injectors deliver fuel to the engine’s combustion chamber by spraying a fine mist onto the back of an intake valve. If you can imagine an aerosol spray can being sprayed multiple times per second in the engine, then you can understand the function of the injector.

However, just like the aerosol can, the injectors can get clogged. Generally by dirt, gums and varnishes from the fuel. When this happens, the spray pattern of the fuel is affected. This means wasted fuel, decreased mileage, and decreased performance and engine response.

Typically, due to condensation, as much as 4-6 ounces of moisture can build up in a fuel system over time. Water in fuel causes trouble for the fuel system, and reduces lubrication of the engine.

When Paragon Motors performs a minor fuel system cleaning, they add TerraClean Optima Fuel System Cleaner to your fuel tank. This product helps clean the fuel system as you drive, clearing up clogged injectors by removing gum and varnish buildup. This helps atomize the fuel during injection cycles to increase fuel mileage and engine performance.  It can also absorb moisture in the fuel tank and turn that moisture into a burnable substance to reduce possible fuel tank corrosion.

Why schedule an oil change regularly?

oil changeThe most basic, cost-effective way to protect your car engine is to change your oil and oil filter on a regular basis. Oil keeps the engine in motion by reducing friction, to lubricate, and decrease wear. Engine oil also creates a seal between pistons, rings and cylinder walls which helps cool engine parts. Oil changes will also reduce the shock and noise of the vehicle's moving parts.

"I always get great service at Paragon. They are very thorough and suggest preventative maintenance for your vehicle before problems start. Dallas gets to know you and your needs and is very knowledgeable about the mechanical workings of vehicles. Rick, Mike and company always do great work and will take the time to find the solution to your vehicle's problem. They never try to fix something that is still working. I highly recommend Paragon to anyone who needs a good mechanic. Rick has been my mechanic for 20 years." ~ Bruno Rossi
