A car breaking down can be troublesome, especially when the roads are jammed when they are on the job and are being chased by jobs. Strikes can be caused by engine problems, stagnant electricity to trivial problems, namely clogged fuel lines. So it’s good to take care of the fuel lines that can be the source of the car breaking down.
1. The gas tank is rusted
Tanks that are more than 10 years old are prone to rust disease. The sign, the remaining gasoline at the bottom of the tank is yellowish and the filter is easily clogged with the remaining rust. Symptoms that often arise, when the vehicle is in a high speed car, the car’s road becomes unstable or choked up. The fix is by washing the tank with gasoline and not using water, because it will actually increase corrosion.
2. Fuel filter clogged
The cause of clogging of the fuel filter is due to the presence of dirt in the form of water, rust, or mud, even because the fuel is of poor quality. Symptoms, when the car is started, the engine starts up, but as soon as you step on the gas pedal, the engine immediately stops or the engine stagnates at high speed.
The fix is to clean the air filter or immediately replace it with a new filter, if the condition is not suitable for use.
3. The fuel pump is malfunctioning
The problem is that the membrane in the fuel pump is torn resulting in insufficient fuel supply to the injector. Around the pump there is fuel seepage and the smell can get to the passengers in the car. Symptoms that occur are usually at first the car can run steadily and smoothly, but suddenly the car seems to lose power or not have power and then the road falters.
4. Hoses and injectors are clogged
The hose is even clogged up due to dirt that has entered because the filter is not working properly. Blockage of the injector is usually indicated by an unbalanced or engine vibration.
