Sputter or Splutter – It’s Not a Good Sign

It could mean your fuel injectors are clogged.

You noticed when you were driving to yesterday’s (June 5) opening day of the Mount Horeb Summer Frolic that, when you stepped on the accelerator, your car or truck didn’t immediately respond. Instead, there was a bit of delay before your vehicle started speeding up. That could be a sign that one or more of your fuel injectors is clogged and needs cleaning or replacing. Time to drop into Terry’s Car Care in Madison and get it looked at before your engine sustains real damage.

The fuel injector is the engine part that’s responsible for – what else? – getting fuel into the system. While they’re tough and made to last, they can become dirty and clogged over time. Especially if you’re not good about routine maintenance and making sure your fuel filter gets changed. If your fuel injector does get clogged or worn out and you don’t do something about it, you run the risk of causing other serious engine problems, including possible engine failure, according to ehow.com.

So, if your car or truck engine idles roughly, floods, sputters, races, or hesitates, bring it down to Terry’s. Our experienced, certified mechanics can check out your engine, pinpoint what’s wrong and get you back on the road again. We also do routine maintenance to help prevent many serious engine problems.
