Fuel Injection System Services from the Folks at Auto Experts
Fuel injection is a system for admitting fuel into an engine. Since 1990, fuel injectors have completely replaced carburetors as the primary means of getting gasoline into the engine. A fuel injector atomizes the fuel by forcibly pumping it through a small nozzle (under high pressure). Failure of the fuel injection system means poor performance and ultimately destroys the engine. Make sure your vehicle’s fuel injection system is properly maintained. For your fuel injection maintenance and replacement needs, call or visit Auto Experts today.
Ignition Wire & Cable Services for Residents of the Blacksburg Area
An ignition system is a system for igniting (using an electric spark) a mixture of fuel and air in a gasoline engine. A properly working ignition system means a properly starting engine and high performance from your car. Ignition cables, also known as spark plug wires, are an important part of your car’s ignition system. They transfer the spark from the ignition coil to spark plugs that ignite the mixture of fuel and air. The mixture starts the engine. Over time, ignition wires and cables weaken and break down. This makes it impossible for the spark to reach the engine cylinders and results in the engine misfiring. The car will eventually fail to start, and if it does start, it will run poorly. Common symptoms of faulty ignition cables and wires include:
- Poor Gas Mileage
- Engine Misfiring
- Engine Light On
- Engine Vibration
If your car needs new ignition cables and wires, call or visit Auto Experts in Blacksburg, VA.
Oil, Lube, & Filter Service from the Professionals at Auto Experts
To keep it running smoothly, your car heavily relies on oil, lube, and oil filters. Oil helps in lubricating, cooling, and cleaning the internal engine components. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. Your car needs an oil, lube, and filter change every three months (or 3,000 miles). When it is time for a lube, oil, or filter change, take your vehicle to Auto Experts in Blacksburg, VA.
Spark Plugs for Your Vehicle in Blacksburg, VA
A spark plug delivers electric current to the combustion chamber from the ignition system. Spark plugs that have not been changed for a long time can cause ignition problems. At Auto Experts, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call or visit Auto Experts today.
