Mercedes Benz Fuel Injection: A Journey to Efficiency

Fuel Injection Cleaning | German Car Depot car repair service

German Car Depot is pleased to provide Mercedes Benz fuel injection cleaning in Hollywood, FL. There are many reasons to consider fuel injection cleaning for your vehicle; the number one reason being a possible alternative to replacing the entire system. A clogged or dirty fuel injection system can cause a number of issues and affect the drivability of your vehicle. Fuel injectors become dirty through the continued use of low-grade fuels; this causes a buildup of carbon in your fuel injection system and eventually results in poor performance from the fuel injectors. Call our shop at 954-921-1515 to schedule your fuel injector cleaning today.

Over time deposits form on intake valves, in the combustion chambers, and in the fuel injectors. This causes loss of power, rough running, misfiring, pinging, hard starting. Resulting in poor gas mileage.

Do You Need Mercedes Benz Fuel Injection cleaning?

Fuel injection repairs, poor gas mileage, knocking noises and hard starting are just a few of the issues that can be resolved by a fuel injector cleaning. Fuel injection works by delivering a metered mixture of fuel and oxygen into your engine, when the spark plugs activate, this mixture combusts and provides the power to drive your vehicle forward. If the fuel injectors become dirty over time, from certain driving habits or from poor fuel quality, this process can be impeded by not allowing enough fuel into the combustion chamber. This will cause your vehicle to experience rough idling or hesitation when accelerating. In extreme cases, the buildup of carbon on your fuel injectors and inside the combustion chamber can cause a hard knocking sound from your engine. It can be extremely prudent to get a fuel injection cleaning at the recommended interval of every 20 to 30 thousand miles.

Clean and Dirty Fuel Injectors On new Mercedes older than year 1996, deposits will cause all the above which triggers the engines control unit to ‘adapt’ for these conditions. It will add more fuel to the engine's mixture, reduce the engines ignition timing and increase the engines idle. The engine feels like it is running the same because of the control units intervention but the final result is the same, poor fuel economy.

The largest cause of these deposits is the quality of gasoline available. It is from the additives in the fuel which cause the deposits. That's why for Mercedes Benz cars we always recommend using the highest grade of gas. In fact it is such a problem that some car manufacturers have released TSB”S (technical service bulletins) addressing this problem.

We perform fuel injection service which includes using BG products. First we will scan your car engine computer, check and note the fuel adaptations. Then we will fog your intake system with BG Fuel Injection System Cleaner which will pre-soak and loosen the deposits, then add BG44K to the fuel tank which will continue the job of removing the deposits and at the same time clean any deposits in the fuel injectors.

Clean and Dirty Car Intake Valves, and how they effect Service

We will test drive your car to clear out the loosened deposits and than rescan the cars engine computer, clear any codes that were generated during the cleaning procedure and re-check and note the difference in the adaptions. In extreme cases we will also use (at an additional cost) BG Induction System Cleaner directly through the fuel injection system to clean heavily deposited engines.

The result after cleaning will be restored power, reduced emissions, faster starts, better engine idling and reduced fuel mileage. Please note not all engines will need or benefit from a fuel injection service. Our technicians can look over your car and inform you what is needed.
