Tip & How-To about Chevrolet 1500

How to make your vehicle run better

Fuel filters can make a big difference on the way your car runs in a big way. If your filter is plugged up the car cannot run right witch would cause a big difference. If you look it up in the owners manuel they will tell you how often to do it. Having a plugged filter can make your engine lite come on because a plugged filter can make the car run lean, it also can make it run ritch, cause it to hesiate on the acceleration, poor gas milege, and check engine lights could start common on. It could do alot more damage to your car then you think. I have had some vehicles double in their gas mileage believe that. also your car doesnt have to work as hard becuase it is running smoother. I would change my fuel filter more then they recomended because it saves me in gas and that means more money in my pocket. Thanks

the air mixture screw does not make my mixture richer or leaner


Unless your vehicle is really old and has a carburetor there shouldn't be an air mixture screw. Air and fuel mixture ratios on engines with Electronic Fuel Injection or EFI are controlled by the vehicle computer witch receives and sends information to and from a slew of different sensors like the oxygen sensors, throttle position sensor, the idle air control valve, Etc. Chances are you have EFI on your vehicle. If your engine is running rough or lacks power, try a complete tune up. New spark plugs/wires, new fuel filter, new air filter, oil and filter change, new oxygen sensors. Try running a bottle of injector cleaner and a bottle of water remover through the vehicle and see if it helps. Hope this helps.
