Since the gasoline engine doesn’t run as often, it doesn’t need as much attention, right? Wrong. The stop/start cycling and heat cycling of combustion engines in HEVs can actually accelerate conditions such as reduced fuel economy, loss of power, and poor throttle response.
These problems can be prevented with regular maintenance of your HEV engine.
A trained automotive professional will use a high-powered cleaner in your fuel system to remove deposits from the top of your engine. Then a potent cleaner is used to dissolve and emulsify deposits to be drained with worn out engine oil.
A high quality oil supplement is added to new engine oil to prevent oil degradation and thickening under even the most severe driving conditions.
