At Scotty Muffler & Auto Repair in Lake Alfred, FL, we won’t recommend fuel injection services unless an inspection deems it necessary.
Although today’s vehicles are designed to need less maintenance than in the past, there are times when your vehicle is going to need more than the basic maintenance, such as an oil change. Fuel injection services are often outlined in your vehicle’s owner’s manual to be done when your vehicle has reached a certain mileage, but there are also signs that it might be needed sooner than that.
As your vehicle is driven, its fuel systems experience a buildup of various things, such as carbon deposits and dirt. How much buildup your car accumulates will depend on a number of factors, including location and quality of the roads. For example, cars and trucks that are driven on dirt roads and off road obviously incur more buildup.

These are all signs that buildup is keeping your vehicle from operating properly.
