The fuel system components are:
Stores fuel. Internal baffles prevent
sloshing during stops and starts.
Draws the fuel from the tank and propels it
through fuel lines.
Steel lines and flexible hoses carry the
fuel from the tank to the engine.
The fuel filter is important for keeping
your fuel system functioning at its best. A clean fuel filter means
better gas mileage. (Change every 20,000 miles or once a year.)
Fuel system wear and tear can be affected
by the quality of fuel used in your automobile, the age of your car or
truck, driving conditions, maintenance history and the number of miles
on the vehicle.
Potential fuel system related problems that you may or may not
experience some time in the life of your vehicle include: poor gas
mileage, “won’t start”, difficulty starting, check engine light
appearing on the dashboard, stalling, surging, misfiring or hesitating.
EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) Carbon deposit is the number one issue
related to the fuel system. The by-product of burning gas is soot,
carbon build-up. That carbon build-up acts like a sponge. As gas is
burned, carbon deposits build up on the fuel system components. The
deposits soak up fuel, causing the car to think it is running lean and
the car's on-board computer tells the fuel system to deliver more fuel.
Once the deposits are saturated the car will adjust back. This process
has the biggest impact on fuel economy. As the deposits grow, the harder
the fuel system has to work, causing poor fuel economy.
