ENGINE MAINTENANCE

Fuel Injection

Fuel injection is a system for admitting fuel into an engine. Since 1990, fuel injectors have completely replaced carburetors as the primary means of getting gasoline into the engine. A fuel injector atomizes the fuel by forcibly pumping it through a small nozzle (under high pressure). Failure of the fuel injection system means poor performance and ultimately destroys the engine. Alaska Spring & Performance will make sure your vehicle's fuel injection system is maintained properly.

Ignition

An ignition system is a system for igniting (using an electric spark) a mixture of fuel and air in a gasoline engine. A properly working ignition system means a properly starting engine and high performance from your car.

Ignition Wires & Cables

Ignition cables also known as spark plug wires are an important part of your car's ignition system. They transfer the spark from the ignition coil to spark plugs that ignite the mixture of fuel and air. The mixture starts the engine. Over time, ignition wires and cables get weak and break down. This makes it impossible for the spark to reach the engine cylinders resulting in the engine misfiring. The car will eventually fail to start. Common symptoms of faulty ignition cables and wires are: poor gas mileage,misfire, engine light is on, and engine vibration.

Spark Plugs

A spark plug delivers electric current to the combustion chamber from the ignition system. Spark plugs that haven't been changed for a long time can cause ignition problems
