CRC Throttle Body Air Intake Cleaner

The throttle body in the air intake system controls the air that flows into the engine.  The amount of air depends on the position of the gas pedal.  If you press the pedal harder then the throttle plate opens wider to give the engine more air, resulting in more power and increased speed. 

CRC MAF Sensor Cleaner

Most fuel-injected vehicles are equipped with a mass air flow sensor, or “MAF” sensor to measure the amount and density of air entering the engine.  This is information the computer uses to determine how much fuel to inject into the engine for combustion as air enters the cylinders. Ignition timing is also affected.  The MAF sensor wire gets dirty with accumulated debris, oil, air filter fibers, dust and pollen.  This can cause inaccurate readings and negatively affect the air to fuel ratio.

CRC GDI IVD Intake Valve Cleaner

It’s a fact that deposits form in every fuel system, but the amount and how quickly they form depend on the quality of fuel and oil used, on personal driving styles and on engine type.

Fuel quality will vary from pump to pump and over time, contaminants in fuels will cause carbon deposits to build-up throughout your car’s entire fuel system.  Even in a new vehicle, deposits can start to form in as few as 5,000 to 10,000 miles.  Engines today are so finely tuned, that even minor deposit formations can cause performance issues.  If you’re experiencing a decline in gas mileage, hesitation, stalling, and other problems, chances are you have carbon build-up in your fuel system.

CRC Motor Treatment

Things just work better when they’re clean and your car’s engine is no exception.  You can’t stop carbon in the fuel system because it’s a byproduct of combustion.  But you can limit and reduce the number of carbon deposits on your intake valves, piston heads, cylinder walls and injectors.  Adding CRC Motor Treatment to your fuel cleans these engine components and lubricates upper cylinders, helping cure hesitation and pings and also restores power.

A Clean Mass Air Flow Sensor Tells No Lies

 (Article = By Mark Salem, Automotive Master Technician for CRC Industries

Every sensor on or in a computer-controlled car or truck talks to the “on-board PC” in a kind of language you’ve never heard or seen. All of the inputs are in a voltage-speak and are all numbers. All of these signals to and from the PC travel in and out at up to 300 times per second. That is some party line!
