This is a question often asked of our service manager at Sierra Toyota in Sierra Vista, AZ. Fuel induction cleaning is fuel injection cleaning plus a whole lot more. It’s more like the spring cleaning we treat our homes each year, cleaning up a lot of accumulated dust and clutter. Similarly, fuel induction cleaning will clear out built-up gunk in your car’s fuel system. It’s a fuel service that yes, cleans the fuel injectors, but also the throttle body, air intake, plenum, ports, and intake valves. And once all the combustion chamber deposits have been removed, one of Sierra Toyota’s certified technicians goes on to correct the fuel and air balance to maintain the vehicle’s fuel efficiency.
The more miles you put on your car or SUV, the thicker the carbon deposits baked onto the throttle body, intake and exhaust valves, injection valves, combustion chamber, and piston valves becomes. Given enough time, this accumulation will result in rough idling, difficulty starting, and other drivability issues. Needless to say this will also result in the car’s consuming more gas than usual.
Clearing out the carbon deposits and other buildups inside engine parts like the intake valves improves the fuel flow to the combustion chamber, which will increase your mileage. Meanwhile, it is also cleaning the throttle body, making way for more air to flow to the combustion chamber. This does away with unsettling annoyances like rough idling and hesitation when driving off after a red light or in stop and go traffic. Remember, a fuel induction cleaning service is also an air induction service.
Believe us, your car will let you know, and in ways, you can’t help but notice.
Manufacturer recommendations differ on the optimum interval between fuel inductor cleanings. Some say as often as every few oil changes, while others advise every 30,000 miles. The best thing to do is to consult your owners’ manual, or better yet ask one of the service advisors at Sierra Toyota.
