Servicing Your Fuel System
Your fuel system is an integral part of your engine, responsible for powering the engine through the combustion of gasoline. When something in your fuel system goes awry, it’s imperative to have it fixed immediately. There are several indicators that your fuel system is failing. If your engine sputters and coughs when you are traveling at faster speeds, it may mean your fuel pump is in trouble. Keep an eye on both your fuel pressure gauge and engine temperature; if these begin to climb, it could be a sign of trouble in your fuel system. Your gas mileage will also suffer, along with engine performance if you’re hauling cargo or climbing a hill. You might even experience a sudden acceleration, as if the gas pedal was pressed, causing the vehicle to move forward. If you suspect something is wrong with your fuel system, bring your vehicle to the certified mechanics at Patrick MINI in Schaumburg, IL.
