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 the 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 to 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.

    Rang around multiple companies asking for help with my car. Paragon was by far the most cost effective and helpful in helping me understand what was wrong with my car and the repair they were doing.
    Will definitely be a returning customer

    Thanks so much.

    Drew and his team gave us great service, very good workmanship and a good price. Drew got my elderly mother’s car in for some major repairs, in the last week before Christmas. Would recommend Paragon Motors to anyone, excellent in every way. -

    Awesome, highly recommend. Very nice and accommodating. I had to leave my car there for a few days due to traveling. After they were done with the repair they phoned and asked if I'd like my car to be inspected for any other issues that needed to be addressed. -
