Combustion & EFI Cleaning Service

Your fuel system in your Toyota went through a lot to power you through the cold and rough conditions of the winter. Treat your vehicle to a Toyota Combustion & EFI System Cleaner Service, which both cleans and rids your vehicles’ combustion system and intake/exhaust valves of inhabitants. Build up in your fuel system can lead to poor performance and an increase in harmful emissions. Contact our Upper James Toyota team to get this beneficial service and be set up right for the spring.

Fuel System Clean

Building off of our last point, you really want to make sure that your engine is as clean as possible after the rigorous winter months. The Toyota Genuine Complete Fuel System Cleaner helps to remove build up inside your engine, allowing your engine to work without loss of power or efficiency. This cleaner is so easy that you can easily do it yourself, which we’ll happily show you, or our Upper James Toyota team will be just as happy to do it for you.

Air Conditioner Refresh

Moving on from the cold weather to the warm weather means you need to make sure that your air conditioner is in proper working order. An A/C Refresher Service from our Upper James Toyota technicians will do exactly that. The ventilation system in your Toyota is supposed to filter out inhabitants, but over time will eventually accumulate build up that doesn’t go away, and which needs to be properly cleaned to ensure a proper flow of air. An A/C inspection will look for said build up, and this service will help clean it out, allowing you to avoid possible larger repairs in the future.
