Internal combustion engines require fuel to generate drive power. The engine relies on a fuel system to deliver the fuel it needs in the perfect amount and at the exact right time. There are many vital components of the fuel system including the fuel tank, pump, filter, carburetor, and injectors. The weakness of the fuel system is that it can get dirty over time due to a variety of factors like environmental conditions, fuel quality, and driving style. Today's fuel contains detergents and additives that can accumulate in fuel system components. As they accumulate over time, blockages will form that threaten the ability for the fuel system to deliver fuel in the precise amount at the perfect time. In particular, the fuel injectors are engineered with a narrow tip that can get clogged relatively easily due to their design and conditions in which they operate.
