Our Engine Maintenance Services

These are some of the engine maintenance services we offer:

Fuel Injection

Engine Maintenance in West HavenFuel injection is a system for admitting fuel into an engine. Since 1990, fuel injectors have completely replaced carburettors 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. Make sure your vehicle’s fuel injection system is maintained properly. For all your fuel injection maintenance and replacement needs, call 203-934-7251 or visit Fred’s Auto Center, LLC today.

Ignition Repair

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. For all your ignition system maintenance and replacement needs, call or visit Fred’s Auto Center, LLC today.

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. This results in the engine misfiring. The car will eventually fail to start. If it does start, it will run poorly. Common symptoms of faulty ignition cables and wires are: poor gas mileage, engine misfires, engine light is on, and engine may vibrate. If your car needs new ignition cables and wires, call or visit Fred’s Auto Center, LLC in West Haven, CT 06516. Here, you will have the wires and cables changed by a top-rated mechanic.

Spark Plug Replacement

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. At Fred’s Auto Center, LLC, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 203-934-7251 or visit Fred’s Auto Center, LLC today.
