When a problem arises within the fuel system, it can greatly increase fuel consumption and hinder performance. Notable components within this system include the fuel pump and fuel injectors, which are both parts that can need servicing over time. One common fuel system issue is a bad or failing fuel pump, which can hinder the amount of fuel that the engine receives.
Here are the symptoms that can indicate a bad fuel pump:
- Engine sputters at high speeds
- Rattling noises
- Lose power when accelerating
- Engine surges
- Engine won’t start
- Difficulty starting
- Low gas mileage
With Gasoline Direct Injection, or GDI, carbon deposits can build up in the injectors which can also lead to a lack of the proper amount of fuel getting into the engine. This can lead to a decrease in performance as well, and any of the symptoms listed above can also be indicative of this issue.
As soon as you notice a problem with your vehicle’s fuel consumption, don’t hesitate to bring your car into our shop for inspection. A bad fuel pump can be promptly replaced, and dirty fuel injectors can be cleaned with a carbon cleaning service. You can trust that our professionals will properly evaluate your vehicle, and will recommend the repair or service needed to restore your vehicle’s efficiency.
