How To Use Fuel System Cleaner And Clean A Fuel System

There are a wide variety of fuel system cleaners available to help clear your vehicle's fuel system from the tank to the engine combustion chamber. Most of them are simple to use by adding a bottle of the cleaner to a full gas tank and then driving the vehicle until it is at approximately 1/4 full before refueling. Additional fuel system cleaning requires the removal of components, such as the intake and throttle body, and using cleaners to remove carbon build up. Replacing the fuel filter at this time is also recommended to complete a fuel system cleaning.

How To Depressurize A Fuel System

To depressurize a fuel system, the first thing to look for is a Schrader valve in the fuel feed line. This valve looks similar to a tire valve with a pin in the middle protected by a plastic cap. Pressing on the pin will release the pressure. If a Schrader valve is not present, then loosening a fuel line is the only other option, in order to release pressure. However, care must be taken to collect any spilled fuel, and cleanup of any residue around the line and anything near the line may be necessary. Do not start the engine until all fuel has evaporated to prevent a fire hazard.

What Is a Fuel System Service?

Fuel system pressure is checked as well as operation of the engine as it relates to the fuel system.

How To Clean A Fuel Injection System

A wide variety of fuel system cleaners are available to clean a vehicle's racing fuel injection system from the fuel cell to the exhaust valve. They work by being added to a full fuel tank and driving the vehicle until it is at approximately 1/4 full before refilling. Removing additional components, such as the intake, throttle body and fuel injectors, and using cleaners to remove carbon build up is the next level of cleaning.
