Top Car Repairs in Phoenix - Tip#12 - Air Intake Systems

Car Repair, especially car air intake in Phoenix, is one of the more critiical systems.  For your car to go, it needs fuel, air and a spark - all in the right proportion. 

Dayes Automotive prides ourselves on quality work - and we have corrected several "repairs" that were well intentioned but maybe not all the way thought through - although "A" for effort for sure.  This is one example:

When is comes to air intake, hoses are used to send controlled air to the internal combustion engine intake manifold. Worn or cracked air intake hoses can leak, which can impact vehicle operation negatively. Common symptoms include:

Fast Idle: If an engine idles too fast, even after backing off the fuel injection or air bypass adjustment screw, air may be flowing past the throttle due to an intake hose leak.

Rough Idle: A leak to the intake manifold can lead to a lean mixture, or combustion mixture, with an excessively high ratio of fuel, which can result in rough idling or even engine stalling. A whistling or sucking noise may indicate air being sucked in through the hose leak. Rough idling due to air intake problems often necessitates replacement of the air intake hose.

Debris: Numerous engine problems, such as stalling and poor performance, also can be caused by debris entering the air intake hose through openings or leaks. This debris, in turn, can enter the engine and cause serious damage. Correcting this problem involves an inspection of the engine and air intake hose.
