What Does the Carburetor Do?

Most vehicles nowadays don’t have carburetors anymore as they’ve mostly been replaced by fuel injection systems. But if yours does, it can be hard to find a mechanic you trust to handle your carburetor services. If you aren’t sure what this component does, you’ve come to the right place. 


The carburetor is a part that is responsible for mixing the fuel and air in your engine. As you may know, there has to be a balanced ratio between fuel and air for your engine to start and run properly. Furthermore, the carburetor also controls your motor’s speed. Some cars have more than one carburetor depending on the engine’s demands. The higher performing the engine, the more carburetors it will have.


Since the carburetor is directly related to your engine’s performance and efficiency, a malfunctioning or bad carburetor can seriously affect how your car drives. When you have a faulty carburetor, you’ll experience the following symptoms:

  • Problems with acceleration and deceleration
  • Increase in fuel consumption
  • Rough running engine
  • Black exhaust smoke

While these signs may not catch your attention right away or be on your list of priorities to fix, minor issues with the carburetor can cause serious problems later on. A smooth combustion process is necessary for your car to function adequately, after all. 


If you notice any problems with your carburetor, please look no further than Eurotech Auto Service for quality repairs.
