3 Benefits of a Fuel System Service

3 Benefits of a Fuel System Service

Though it's not required nearly as often as an oil change or tire rotation, a fuel system cleaning service can be very beneficial for your car. Over time, sediments can build up in the gas tank, fuel lines, fuel pump and fuel injection system. The fuel filter can become clogged or worn out to a point where it is ineffective.

It will entail a full flush and chemical cleaning of your fuel system, as well as replacement of your fuel filter.

What Does the ABS Warning Light Mean?

What Does the ABS Warning Light Mean?

What Does the ABS Warning Light Mean? ABS stands for the anti-lock braking system. The system is put in place to keep the driver safe by preventing wheel lockup when you apply brakes. It prevents the car from skidding and gives you more control over its steering. A warning light is placed on the dashboard and it illuminates when there is an issue in the anti-lock braking system that requires your attention. What Reasons Cause ABS Light to Come On?

There is even a reservoir that holds the fluid for the ABS. If there is a leak in the system, the pressure falls, and the reservoir's fluid levels go down. This leak causes the ABS light to come on. 2. The Speed Sensor is Faulty The wheel hub has a built-in speed sensor that determines the speed by t ... read more
