Your Oxygen Sensor Needs Replacing:
It is your oxygen sensor that measures the amount of unburned oxygen is in your vehicle’s exhaust system. If you do not replace it your engine will burn more fuel than needed. You will also experience the loss of fuel economy if this is ignored. A faulty sensor can also cause damage to your spark plugs and catalytic converter.
Loose Gas Cap:
Or it could be just as simple as a loose, damaged or missing gas cap. Your gas cap seals the fuel system and helps maintain the pressure within the fuel tank. It also prevents gasoline fumes from being released into the atmosphere while you aren’t driving your car. If you do not replace the gas cap you can lose fuel through evaporation which means more trips to the gas pump. So stop by today and let the specialists at Redline Total Car Care check it out. While you are there we will give your vehicle the once over as well.
Catalytic Converter Needs Replacing:
Your catalytic converter helps protect our environment by converting harmful carbon monoxide into carbon dioxide. Damage usually occurs due to neglected maintenance. If you do not replace it you will experience reduced performance and fuel economy and your car may run at a higher temperature.
Mass Airflow Sensor Needs Replacing
Your mass airflow sensor measures the amount of air entering the engine to determine how much fuel is needed to run your engine efficiently. A Faulty sensor can cause damage to spark plugs, O2 sensors or catalytic converter. You will experience reduced performance and fuel economy
Spark Plugs Or Spark Plug Wires Need Replacing:
The spark plug wires deliver the spark from the ignition coil to the spark plugs. Your spark plugs ignite the air/fuel mixture in the combustion chamber of your vehicle. If you do not replace them you will experience poor performance and reduced fuel economy. Also, worn plugs and plug wires can cause clogged catalytic converter or damage to ignition coils and O2 sensors
