There are a number of issues that can prevent your gasoline direct injection (GDI) engine from performing at optimal levels and one of these problems is carbon buildup. Carbon deposits in the intake valves and throttle body can cause acceleration problems and hinder your vehicle’s fuel efficiency. A fuel induction service can clear out these carbon deposits.
A fuel induction service consists of a technician removing the electronic throttle body from your vehicle and manually cleaning it. After reinstalling the throttle body, the technician then cleans the upper engine intake valve by spraying a cleaning solution into the air intake while the engine is running and then letting it sit for at least an hour. Lastly, the technician might perform a fuel injector cleaning service to remove carbon deposits from the port.
If you have noticed that your vehicle is experiencing a performance issue, a carbon buildup could be the cause. A fuel induction service should clear that up. Some common symptoms of carbon buildup include the aforementioned problems of accelerating and reduced fuel efficiency. Other symptoms include a rough idle, hard starting, and knocking or pinging noises coming from your engine. A fuel induction service can solve all these issues and it can reduce harmful emissions.
