Your Summer Car Maintenance Schedule

Your Summer Car Maintenance Schedule

It’s always important to follow the maintenance schedule outlined by your vehicle’s manufacturer – you can typically find that in your owner’s manual. The manufacturer knows what it takes to keep your vehicle running smoothly. Before the hot summer months hit, there are a few additional maintenance items you should consider looking at. A little bit of planning can help you avoid surprises with your car as you head out on vacation and enjoy the warm weather of summer. Trust us, we get a lot of calls from customers about how to handle the summer heat – from both maintenance and performance aspects. Read More

Tech Tip: Cold Weather Warm-Up Idling Can Harm a Modern Engine

Winter is hanging on for much of the US. Be sure to protect your vehicle from excess wear and friction caused by long periods of idling.

Contrary to conventional wisdom, idling does surprisingly little to warm the engines of today’s gasoline-powered vehicles. Modern engines are engineered so they’ll actually warm up faster if they are driven, not left to idle for long periods of time. Until the engine warms up sufficiently, the onboard computer system is putting extra gas into the combustion chamber. And all that gas is an outstanding solvent that can wash lubricating oil off the walls, causing significant extra wear and friction on components like piston rings and cylinder liners. This engine warming negative effect can be fought off with engine treatment products like our Rislone Engine Treatment, but more on that later.

Winter Maintenance Tips for Your Car

Before winter hits, it’s a good idea to take care of some winter service and maintenance items. Colder weather can be hard on your car and dealing with problems once winter hits can be a big hassle. Here at Rislone, we know a thing or two about car care and maintenance, so check out our top tips on how to look after your car in wintertime and get it ready for the coldest season. Read More

How Is Diesel Fuel Injection Different?

Diesel engines are often chosen for their excellent low-end power (high torque output) and long-term durability. One of the major differences between diesel and gasoline engines is how the fuel is delivered. Diesel fuel is injected through high-pressure rails directly into the combustion chamber of each cylinder. This is called direct injection and is monitored very closely to ensure the precise ratio of diesel fuel and air is injected for optimal combustion and maximum power. Read More

Tech Tip: Spot and Solve Common Fuel System Problems

Here’s the truth no matter how you cut it: a vehicle won’t run right if it’s not consistently getting the fuel it needs. Consistency is key, because the gateway to today’s fuel systems are the fuel injectors that open and close in millionths of a second to spray a controlled dose of fuel into the engine. Here are three typical symptoms that indicate a fuel system problem, usually because the fuel injector tolerance is no longer in balance.

  1. Power Loss: Power loss, as well as alternating high and low engine revving and sluggish acceleration, can be a clear sign of fuel injector problems. This is often the result of fuel injectors being clogged or dirty, which impedes fuel delivery.
  2. Misfiring Engine: An engine that misfires may be doing so because the fuel injector valves are not opening or closing correctly, or are leaking fuel. These fuel injector problems are also likely to lead to poor gas mileage performance, poor or rough idling, engine knocking and difficulty starting.
  3. Smoke Emissions: Especially for diesel engines, smoke coming out of the tailpipe, along with general poor engine performance, may be a result of poor-quality fuel which, in turn, clogs fuel injectors.

The solution for these typical fuel injector problems

There are basically two ways to treat these malfunctioning fuel injectors: replace them or clean them. Replacing fuel injectors can be a costly process and is usually not necessary. Cleaning and treating is a much better option. It’s faster, cheaper, and if you use the right solution, very effective. However, not all fuel injector/fuel system treatments are created equal.

There are many fuel injector cleaner products on the market, so it’s best to trust solutions with proven track records and ironclad guarantees. Rislone offers a Complete Gasoline Fuel System Treatment (p/n #4700) and a Complete Diesel Fuel System Treatment (p/n #4740) that not only clean fuel injectors and keep them clean, but can also enhance other aspects of your fuel system that have become dirty due to low-quality fuel, harsh conditions and fuel quality factors.

To clean gasoline engine fuel injectors, simply install Rislone Complete Gasoline Fuel System Treatment into a full tank of fuel. It will eliminate engine noise and engine smoking while simultaneously helping your vehicle use fuel more efficiently. To clean diesel engine fuel injectors, add Rislone Complete Diesel Fuel System Treatment to a tank of fuel. Like the gas counterpart, it will also boost cetane levels, provide anti-gel protection and stabilize the diesel fuel.

We weren’t first to the fuel game, because we realized many of the products on the market did very little in terms of real results, and some didn’t work at all.

We refused to offer a product like that.

Try our fuel treatment products (again, for gas or diesel) and let us know on Facebook or via our support team what you think. If customer feedback so far is any indicator, we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
