All you need to know about tuning turbo-engines

If you are planning to enter a drag race, then the first thing that you need to do is to get your fuel pressure regulator checked. The fuel pressure regulator essentially happens to be one of the core-essential components of your car. Simply put, without a working fuel pressure regulator, your car is bound to break down and/or even develop major issues down the line. And that is exactly why you need to get your car checked out by a car mechanic soon. Here are a few indications that something is awry with your fuel pressure regulator.

A fuel pressure regulator essentially checks and regulates the fuel before it goes into the injector. So when it does not work, as it is supposed to, your car can develop serious issues. And that’s reason enough to keep your eyes open for some of the early signs that your fuel pressure regulator is not working as it is supposed to.

  • Black smoke

If you notice black smoke coming out of your exhaust, then that’s an early indication that something is wrong with the vehicle’s fuel pump as well as the fuel pressure regulator. The black smoke spewing out of your exhaust is an early indication that you need a mechanic to check out your fuel engine and the regulator right away. Of course, you could ignore it and this would only lead to a major breakdown or a blowout, down the line. 

  • Low pressure

One of the main reasons that your car may no longer work as efficiently as before is primarily because your fuel pressure regulator has either quit functioning or is not working as per the manufacturer’s recommendations. For example, even sooty spark plugs can cause your car to work less efficiently and that’s why you need the whole vehicle checked out at the earliest.

  • Engine lag

Yes, your car can indeed go a lot more slowly and even develop a lag, as you power up the engine. This is mainly due to the act that the fuel is not being delivered to the cylinders on time and an early indication of the dropping fuel pressure. And allowing this issue to persist would only lead to a complete breakdown. That’s why you need to get the issue checked out by a car mechanic, soon.

  • Engine slow ignition

Does your vehicle have a slow start-up? Does it splutter a lot? If that’s the case, then the culprit could well be dropping fuel pressure and that your regulator is not working as it is supposed to. And as you start your car, it usually requires a lot of fuel. And a drop in fuel pressure can well impact this and cause your engine to start a lot more slowly. You need to get this issue sorted out at the earliest, as a prolonged delay can well lead to a breakdown or blowout.

  • Check engine light

If you get the check engine indication often, then the car fuel sensor is indicating that something is indeed wrong with your vehicle and it can also sense when your fuel pressure drops. And that’s why you need to use a diagnostic scanner and see if you can determine what’s wrong. If you are not able to do so, then you can head to the nearest local garage for a complete check-up and get it sorted out.

These are some of the things that you need to get checked out when it comes to returning your turbo engines.
