Know your basic fuel system
One of the major components that power your car is the fuel system. The moment the engine starts, the fuel flows through a fuel line from the tank to the fuel pump. The fuel injection system supplies a clean air and fuel mixture that triggers the engine to run. Poor maintenance of the fuel system will result in weaker engine performance and if any of these parts break down, the engine could stop running.
While there are a number of things that can cause your fuel system to fail, the most prevalent one is dirt. This is why the fuel and air filter components are often said to be the vehicle’s front line defence because it prevents dirt from entering the fuel system. The fuel injection system is very susceptible to damage from dirt. When tiny foreign particles and deposits are allowed to build up inside, it prevents fuel from delivering to the engine.
Proper maintenance of these parts is usually recommended by your car dealer during your scheduled service to keep the fuel system healthy.
Fuel Tank: It holds the fuel supply and contains a sending unit which tells the fuel gauge how much fuel remains in the tank. It is important to ensure that the nozzle is clean so that the fuel is free of dirt when it is transferred into the tank.
Fuel Injection System: The system mixes fuel with air in the internal combustion engine, with its main component being the fuel injector - an electrically activated valve that sprays exactly the right amount of fuel to the intake valves of the engine. The pulse width, controlled by the vehicle’s ECU, determines the amount of time the fuel injector stays open.
Fuel Line: It is a hose that regulates the flow of fuel and is connected to the fuel pump, fuel filter and fuel injectors. A clogged fuel line is like clogged arteries, and will cause difficulties in starting the car.
Why you should replace your oil and air filter
Well-maintained oil and air filters ensure that clean fuel and air gets mixed before it is supplied to the fuel injectors.
In most cars, the oil filter is located either by the fuel tank or near the engine while the air cleaner housing is located
in the engine compartment. The oil and air filter traps foreign particles like dust and rust from entering the engine. Over time, these particles accumulate and clog both the oil and air filter, which could easily cause the engine to overheat, the spark plugs to fail and other drivability issues. This is why a regular replacement is necessary to ensure optimal engine performance.
If your engine starts choking when you start your vehicle or if you notice an obvious decrease in fuel mileage, it is
a clear sign that the oil or air filter may be clogged with contaminants and it is time to replace them. Otherwise,
replacing any of the filters as scheduled in your service maintenance should keep your car running smoothly.
Did you know...
...that constantly driving around in a near empty tank is not just worrying but can also cause more damage to the fuel system?
When there is more room in the tank, water vapour starts forming from the air that fills the tank. This can cause the insides of your tank to rust, which accumulates as sludge at the bottom of the tank. While it does no harm when the tank is full, the bottom mixture gets fed to the engine when fuel level is low, thus causes the fuel pump to clog.
Is it time to change your engine oil?
Keeping your fuel system clean will help give you better mileage while ensuring that it runs smoothly. Combined with using high quality engine oil from Honda, your car would enjoy maximum protection in addition to getting a boost in its performance!
From 1 January – 28 February 2011, Honda owners will receive a multi-purpose bag or an umbrella when you replace your engine oil and oil filter in conjunction with our Chinese New Year Campaign 2011.
