Fuel Injection and Air Induction
With the increasing complexity of the modern vehicle, many drivers on the road know very little about how their car or truck operates. Bridgetown Automotive assists countless customers with their automobile service who report that they would like to have more knowledge about the workings of their vehicle. Bridgetown Automotive agrees that understanding at least the basics about automobiles can help drivers to keep up with the appropriate service and maintenance of their car or truck. This article focuses on two things that work in conjunction to power a vehicle – fuel injection and air induction.
Gas engines power the majority of all vehicles on the road. Put very simply, a gas-powered engine operates by combusting the fuel within its chambers and using the energy created by this combustion to provide power to the vehicle. This process of course requires that both fuel and air enter the engine in precise quantities. This brings us to the focus of this article – fuel injection and air induction. These two vehicle systems are essential to the operation of any vehicle, and if either the fuel injection or the air induction system of a vehicle is in disrepair, drivers will experience serious problems with their car or truck.
It is easy to overlook the importance of something as simple as airflow, but the fact of the matter is that a car’s engine requires a precise flow of air into the engine in order to function properly. This is where the air induction system comes into play. One way of looking at the air induction system is as an air pump. The air induction system forces air into the inner chamber of an engine so that it can combine with the fuel and create combustion. Because oxygen is required to create any sort of combustion, the air induction system is integral to a car’s operation.
A car’s performance can be greatly enhanced or hindered depending on how well the air induction is working. A technician at Bridgetown Automotive is best suited to take a look at the system to make sure that the filter is clean, the sensors are functioning well and that the throttle and other components are all in good shape.
Fuel injection is equally important to air induction because without this system, vehicles have no way of getting the gas from their vehicle’s tank to its engine for the combustion process. Fuel injection systems require periodic maintenance because impurities build up in the system and create problems with the vehicle’s operation. Here again, this is a job best left to an experienced technician at Bridgetown Automotive.
Bridgetown Automotive thoroughly inspects fuel injection systems and leaves nothing uncovered. The technicians will examine the fuel pump, check for proper pressure, check for leaks, clean the injectors and flush the system to provide customers with the most thorough fuel injection maintenance. Servicing a fuel injection system is quite involved, and a technician with years of experience should handle the job.
Bridgetown Automotive has been a mainstay of the Portland Metro area for many years. The technicians at Bridgetown Automotive are adept at handling fuel injection and air induction issues, and provide customers with peace of mind that their vehicles are in the best hands.
