Service & Maintenance | Parts of the Fuel/Engine Management System | Video

The fuel and engine management system supplies the proper mixture of air and gasoline to the engine while reducing harmful fuel vapors and exhaust pollutants.

According to the Car Care Council a little preventive maintenance can save you from unnecessary fuel costs.

For example:

  • If your engine needs a tune-up, it could be wasting about 15% or more of its fuel

  • If the tires are just eight PSI underinflated, the rolling resistance can run you several dollars a month

  • A stuck thermostat reduces engine efficiency by another 7%, leading to several dollars a month of unnecessary expenditures

  • Wheels that are just one-quarter inch (one centimeter) out of alignment will waste fuel as well

Together, these unnecessary fuel costs can total hundreds of dollars a year. Clearly, a little preventive maintenance not only saves you money in the long run, but also helps extend vehicle life and increase vehicle safety.
