Gainesville FL Automotive Fuel System


Carrsmith specializes in the repair and service of automotive fuel systems on European Imports at our Gainesville auto repair shop. The fuel system in your car or truck operates with the rest of the engine control system to minimize your vehicle's emissions while ensuring optimal vehicle performance when driving in and around Gainesville. The fuel system should be inspected immediately at our Gainesville shop if you think there is a problem or you smell gasoline. The fuel system delivers fuel from the fuel tank to the fuel injectors, passing the fuel through a fuel filter for cleaning in the process. There is a pressure regulator in the fuel system that controls the fuel pressure to make certain the engine performs correctly under varying speeds and load conditions. When reaching the fuel injectors a metered amount of fuel is sprayed into the engine cylinders before being ignited to in turn power your car or truck. Many modern day vehicles use a return line system that returns unused fuel to the fuel tank to be re-circulated in the fuel system.

Your vehicle's fuel system's repair and service needs are determined by several factors that contribute to its wear and tear. Some of these include the quality of fuel used in your automobile, the age of your car or truck, mileage, Gainesville driving conditions, and maintenance history. With regard to fuel quality for use in fuel injected cars: We recommend only using "TOP TIER" fuels. The TOP TIER fuel licensing program includes brands that manufacture gasoline to TOP TIER specifications. These include Amoco, BP, Chevron, Citgo, Costco, Exxon, Marathon, Mobil, Shell, Sunoco, Texaco and Valero. Look for the TOP TIER fuel logo where you purchase fuel. Symptoms that you may be experiencing problems with your fuel system will include poor fuel economy, the vehicle not starting, or the "check engine" light appearing on the dashboard.
